Sneak Peek

 

 

Mitigate flooding on your property

Drainage problems may not be easy to avoid when it rains too much, but with proper foresight and preparation drainage and flood issues will always be less.

This course brings together aspects of land management, engineering, hydraulics, surveying and engineering to help the student understand the factors that affect both movement and retention of water above and below the ground surface. It provides an awareness of ways drainage is mitigated and provides a foundation for better water management on any property.
