Introduction to Watershed and Floodplain Modeling (NRCS-NEDC-000023)
This course enables participants to use NRCS hydrologic criteria and procedures to correctly design soil and water conservation measures. Emphasis is placed on hydrologic procedures and concepts used in the design of earth dams, determining peak rates of run-off, and the effect of urbanization on the peak and volume of run-off.
This course was formerly titled “Hydrology Level III.”
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
Correctly interpret hydrologic policy used in the design of soil and water conservation measures
Correctly use hydrologic criteria and procedures in the design and installation of soil and water conservation measures
Correctly use hydrologic criteria and procedures in the design and installation of medium to large size structural measures
Engineering Hydrology Training Series Modules 101-107, 111, 116, 201-203, 206A, and 206B.
All engineers and very experienced technicians involved in design of conservation measures on farms, ranches, watersheds, and in urban areas may attend. This course is not recommended for practicing hydraulic engineers - they should attend Advanced Watershed & Floodplain Modeling within their first two years of involvement.
