MicroDrainage Course F: Sustainable Drainage Systems

Advanced Training Course

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are now a central requirement of planning policies in the UK and Ireland. Approving authorities will not accept plans that do not consider SuDS solutions. MicroDrainage has played a central role in making SuDS a practical, measurable addition to the engineer's options for control and flood prevention.

Who will benefit?

All drainage and development control engineers within consultancies, their clients, and the approving authorities and regulators. A good knowledge of MicroDrainage> is essential.

What will they learn?

As well as the practical application of the MicroDrainage SuDS capabilities, engineers will gain an understanding of SUDS policies in England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland.

Key Topics

Course covers the five stage SuDS design methodology applied within MicroDrainage, including:

  • Feasibility and planning - assessing the viability of SuDS in the context of specific projects
  • Quick sizing to determine the likely capacity
  • Detailed design of a SuDS system
  • Working with cascades and treatment trains
  • Holistic analysis, encompassing SuDS and conventional controls, within Simulation

The course combines tutor-led teaching with worked examples and hands-on learning. A final design exercise provides the opportunity to integrate different SuDS structures fully into the treatment train.
