Parking lots can be seen almost everywhere, from shopping centers to office buildings to schools. Stormwater drainage design is an integral component in the design of parking lots. This course covers the basics of designing an adequate storm drainage system for a parking lot. Design methods are presented for evaluating rainfall and runoff magnitude, pavement drainage, gutter flow, and drainage inlets. The concept for the design of detention/retention facilities is also discussed. Several examples are presented to illustrate the detailed procedures for designing storm drainage systems of a parking lot. The basic principles discussed in this course can be applied not only to parking lots, but to parking decks, paved streets, and highways as well.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
