Great overview of cause and effects of floods and FEMA concerns. Level of detail was appropriate to understand damage caused by flooding without going into details only required by floodplain specialist.

The course was very comprehensive and offered lots of information!! The only question I have is why is the Hazen-Williams Excel Sheet provided for download? I never got to use it in the course. However, I used it in another course where the same spreadsheet was available for use.
That was an error on our end. It's corrected now.

Good class. I believe the math is wrong or someone transpose the numbers for number 11. . . .
Good catch. We corrected the problem. Thanks for your keen eye!
