Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 1/25/2019)
172-Design of Constructed Stormwater Wetlands

This course is intended for engineers who are involved in land use projects requiring stormwater control. It describes the design, installation, and maintenance of constructed stormwater wetlands.

The overall objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive design guide to constructed stormwater wetlands. A design of vegetated filter strips is also included as well as a discussion of water budget calculations. The course describes a variety of types of constructed wetlands and includes a discussion of adaptations that need to be made to them in unusual situations.

This was a good course. I wanted to point out that the explanation for the answer to Test Problem number 10 does not correlate to the question.

Interesting course. Question # 14 appears to have an issue in formatting.
Question #14 is now fixed. Thanks for the head's-up.

I've been working on these types of project in conjunction with an ecologist, and this course has deepened my knowledge of these systems beyond the stormwater aspect. Very detailed and presented in an organized manner. The references indicated in the course make it helpful for the novice designer to apply to his/her territory by seeking similar reference material for their jurisdiction. Very glad I signed up for this course.

This course is a good review of the requirements associated with the design of stormwater wetlands, but I am not sure that I would feel comfortable entering into the design thereof with just what has been covered within this study. Interesting, and points me in the right direction, I think, wherein the necessary data could be gathered to comfortably enter into the design of a Constructed Wetlands.

Good Intro

The course was a good intro to Wetland construction, and provides a overview of the considerations. A couple comments on the information and the test are in order. Question 14 seems to conflict in that is seems to be asking for an answer in inches, but the only available choices are in feet. Also, the NJ table on percentages of wetland make up would be nice if it had the heading to the table published in the course info The heading states the numbers are percentages of the whole volume. For those not familiar with the table, it could be somewhat confusing. The table values do not match the latest table available on line for NJ DEP. All in all, a very good intro course to the subject.

Observed the early construction of wetland and I now appreciate the requirement of a qualified horticulture expert on the team. The course is well written and it requires the reader to concentrate and visualize using the photographs provided in the text.

A good overview course, with general guidance and some regulatory information, enough to let the engineer know what areas to look at, be familiar with terminology, and discuss with regulatory agencies.

This is a good course for contractors in explaining with detail the necessity of stormwater wetlands as part of a project's scope. The narrative is very good with a few topics requiring re-reading (for newcomers to the subject) in order fully grasp the concepts/ideas.

I found the course very useful and interesting. I do not yet know if Iowa accepts this for continuing education credits, but the course was worth it for my own knowledge. I have one negative comment and that has to do with the use of the phrase "settle out of solution" as used on page 6 last sentence. The sediments, trash, and debris are in suspension not in solution. I think they would settle out of suspension.
