John Poullain, P.E.
This four-hour online course discusses the engineering surveys, hydrology and geotechnical data that are necessary for the planning, design and construction processes for wetland development. It covers structural components, like fish passages, water control structures and levees to meet the wetland functions. It also covers the various classes of wetlands, characteristics, objectives and hydrodynamics. Also included are the engineering, biology, geology, and soil science 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 includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
