This three-hour online course discusses the engineering surveys, hydrology and geotechnical data that are necessary for the design of wetland structural components, fish passages, water control structures and levees to meet the wetland functions. It covers the various classes of wetlands, characteristics, objectives and hydrodynamics. Engineering, biology, and geology, soil science and other disciplines used for designing a feasible wetland project. Restoration actions and activities performed at wetland sites must comply with federal, state and local regulations to protect water quality and the environment. This course is intended for civil engineers, project managers, planners and owners and discusses the basic procedures for designing a wetland restoration or enhancement project and its components. Topics covered include the science, characteristics, and functions of various classes of wetlands and includes.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
