Storm Sewer Design Course TM31

Course Content

  • Hydrology
  • Hydraulics
  • Storm Sewer Design Worksheet
  • Sewer layout and standards
  • Structural design of rigid conduits
  • Structural design of flexible conduits
  • Design of culverts
  • Selection of corrugated steel culverts

Course Objectives
To introduce participants to the fundamental design principles used to estimate stormwater runoff and the principles used to design storm water systems.


Who Should Attend?
Those who have had some exposure to stormwater drainage and design who wish to expand their understanding of methods of accommodating storm water runoff for minor and major design storm events, e.g. field inspectors, draft persons, GIS technologists, development design technologists, water resource and development engineers.


Materials Required

Each student must provide their own laptop with licensed version of Microsoft Excel 2007 or Excel Office 365 installed. Students should also bring a metric engineering scale, pens, and mechanical pencils (and computer reading glasses if required)


Participants should have good comprehension of high school math and be familiar with the use and manipulation of algebraic formulas and the use of Microsoft Excel software, as the course involves the use of these formulae and Excel worksheets to solve storm sewer design and related problems. Completion of the General Inspection course (TM32) and/or inspection experience is recommended.
