Course Description

This bundle course includes the following courses - Stormwater I, Stormwater II, Stormwater Management Hydraulics And Hydrology I, Stormwater Management Hydraulics And Hydrology II. Upon completion of the course bundle, students will be prepared to take the American Public Works Association (APWA) Certified Stormwater Manager (CSM) certification exam.

Stormwater I:

Stormwater effects on receiving streams and the aquatic ecosystems in them is very important. Developing performance goals and design criteria for stormwater controls is a necessary step. This course addresses the concept of unit processes and unit operations as they apply to stormwater management. 

Stormwater II:

Maintenance activity to preserve the intended water quality, and stormwater conveyance capacity of stormwater controls are critical to stormwater management. This course explores Whole life costing (also known as life cycle cost analysis) and teaches participants how to effectively evaluate the performance of stormwater controls. 

Stormwater Management: Hydraulics And Hydrology I:

The main focus of this course is engineering hydraulics and hydrology of yesterday and today. The course takes a close look at the various aspects of modern stormwater management and reviews general principles of engineering design.

Stormwater Management: Hydraulics And Hydrology II:

In the past, stormwater was considered a nuisance. Today it is viewed as a beneficial resource with the ability to return to its natural pathways through distributed controls. This course highlights the Manning’s Equation, channel, pipe and stream flow.
