Seminar Overview

This seminar will increase your expertise in detention routing and address the essential concepts of detention routing using “real-world” examples and case studies. As a result of this seminar, you will be able to minimize risk and improve the operation and effectiveness of your clients’ detention facilities. Hydrograph analysis and strategy development will be emphasized to reduce modeling iterations.

Detention is an essential storm water management tool used to mitigate the impacts of development or to improve existing flooding conditions within a watershed. The purpose of this seminar is to ensure that your detention facility is designed to operate effectively and avoid impacts to adjacent or downstream properties. As a result of this seminar, you will be able to perform a technically appropriate detention analysis to minimize risk and improve the operation and effectiveness of your clients’ detention facilities. You will also be able to improve detention routing project performance through effective project planning and strategy development.
