H. Wayne Harper, PE
Enter the fascinating world of stormwater management and discover the types, functions, benefits, and limitations of the relatively unnoticed network of man-made treatment ponds. Written as a citizenís guide, this course provides a detailed overview of stormwater treatment ponds, their place in the watershed, pollutant removal chemistry, aquatic biota, and pond maintenance procedures. This practical information on stormwater ponds and their care also offers guidance to non-technical persons on how to develop a neighborhood-based care program for localized stormwater ponds. While the course material focuses on treatment ponds in Florida, the science, design, and maintenance principles presented are applicable to stormwater management anywhere. The depth of information and detail within the course is comprehensive and well suited for engineers, consultants, planners, and average citizens seeking to initiate or broaden their understanding of stormwater treatment ponds.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
