Course Description

174-Design of Infiltration & Extended Detention Basins

This course is intended for engineers who are involved in land use projects requiring stormwater control. It describes the design, installation, and maintenance of infiltration basins and extended detention basins. It also compares the effectiveness of these two types of systems and points out the limitations on the use of each.

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.

Refer to pg 5. Some jurisdictions require min depth water in detention basin, surface of which will be lowest orifice of controlled outlet. This type of basin does provide removal of TSS and peak Q attenuation, while infiltration is not ac onsideration.

This was a straightforward and good course. I noticed several typos; I would hope that there would be better quality control by either the author or the provider.

The middle portion of the course about snow was pointless for me, given where I practice.
