Woodland Water Legislation and Hydrology

Details

Course Number

WOLF0009

Course Description

Watercourse crossings in Alberta are regulated mainly by five pieces of legislation. This course presents the intent of these standards and their key features. As people learn what the requirements are for specific watercourse types, they will be better prepared to choose the correct crossings, install them competently and ultimately reduce your legal liability. The size of crossing required is often underestimated - resulting in crossing failure with the first spring runoff. This causes both environmental damage and a direct financial loss. In order to design the crossing to handle the peak flows, one must understand the characteristics of watershed above the crossing. This course will provide the industrial user with an understanding of hydrological factors that affect the crossing design. This will improve communication between the engineers and reduce crossing failures.
