A comprehensive introduction to sewerage system design and analysis.
Who will benefit?
This is an essential course for anyone new to storm or foul water design and analysis. It is also necessary for those wishing to update their knowledge, gain an understanding of the latest industry best practice and avoid common mistakes.
What you will learn
The course starts with a short introduction to the drainage industry, relevant legislation and common terminology. You then complete a series of short exercises designed to introduce new concepts one stage at a time. Each day ends with some longer exercises based around real world examples.
The courses will be conducted using GoToTraining software, which allows two way communication between the instructor and the class.
To participate you will need two screens, one to run the software and the other to watch the presenter or their screen. A headset with microphone would also be very useful.
You will operate the software using a ‘virtual’ computer which we will provide and which you can access from your computer, whether from home or in the office. We will provide you with login details a day or so before the course starts. This virtual machine includes the software and data required to run the course. In other words, there is no need for you to install the software on your computer, to participate in the training.
Training notes will be posted to you in advance of the training.
Class sizes will be strictly limited as we understand the challenges associated with remote learning.

The course covers the main functionality of MicroDrainage, including:
- Design criteria
- Design rainfall and rainfall theory
- Pipe design including:
- Meeting “Sewers for Adoption” design standards.
- Non-standard pipe shapes
- Discharge to existing networks
- Avoidance of other services, such as gas mains.
- Storm, foul and combined inputs
- Above and below ground storage
- On-line and off-line flow control
- Limitation of discharge to local watercourses
- Run 2D simulations and review flooding results graphically and through maps
- Configure the mesh to account for streets, buildings, and other GIS features effectively
- Use ICM tools to optimize the mesh for performance and accuracy, while addressing strategies to model common features like culverts and overpasses
- Simulate hydrologic processes on the mesh, including direct rainfall and infiltration
- Modeling 2D structures such as walls, dams, and weirs
