This course emphasizes the importance of good drainage with discussions of the effects of water on roads, problems caused by improper drainage, and ways to handle these problems. It covers types of drainage systems ranging from ditches, culverts, subdrains, inlets, and end structures. Uses, materials, installation, and maintenance of these systems are addressed as well. This course also introduces geosynthetic drainage applications.
