There are several stages of highway design all of which involves careful engineering that helps to facilitate the safety of vehicular traffic. Highway drainage can become a problem when the surrounding terrain is relatively flat. Highway stormwater pump stations can be used to carry water from the roadway where gravity drainage is impossible or unfeasible. The cost to implement stormwater pump stations may be substantial however it may be necessary to ensure the safe movement of traffic during storm events. Alternatives to stormwater pumping stations include siphons, recharge basins, deep and long storm drain systems and tunnels.
This course highway stormwater pump station design will cover the various stages of stormwater pump design including pump location, size, power requirements, and maintenance. Several example problems will be studied to aid the student in solving problems that may present themselves to the designer
This course material is based on the document Highway Stormwater Pump Station Design, as published on the website of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
