Course Description

169-Design of Drywells

This course is intended for engineers who are involved in land use projects requiring stormwater management. It will be useful for the design of both small and large-scale projects and especially on sites where space is at a premium.

The overall objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive guide to drywell design. It will provide information from the initial design phase right up through the installation of the drywell. In addition, it will provide the user with a guide as to how to size and locate a drywell as well as providing a discussion of where and when these features should or should not be used. Finally, it will guide the engineer through the necessary soil testing to properly locate and size the drywell.

I would rate this course as above average. Nothing wrong with what is provided. However, I believe that several calculations should be included on the test. Running through the calculations to determine a required drywell style and size helps with understanding. This would be especially true with Example 2.

This is a very good introduction to drywell design. Working in the SE, holding stormwater on a residential property is not required, but I have seen a few small-lot commercial projects use similar design techniques.

This course was very informative regarding the fundamentals for design of drywells. I found the sample calculations to require close attention to avoid misinterpretation of units, specifically I recommend spaces either side of the "X" symbols to clarify units.
