T. E. McLaughlin, PE
This course provides the designer with a variety of methods commonly used for groundwater control on construction projects. Common dewatering terms and techniques are discussed, along with examples of typical situations and analyses of groundwater conditions using hydraulic equations. Upon completion of the course, the designer should be able to address basic groundwater problems and situations encountered during horizontal construction projects, and thereby avoid some of the liability incurred if the problems are ignored during preparation of the bid documents. The objective of the course is to familiarize the designer with the standard techniques used to control groundwater in excavations, and in general, how to control groundwater on horizontal construction projects.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
