Maryland Stormwater Management - The New Manual

The Maryland Society of Surveyors is pleased to present the schedule for Continuing Education featuring “Maryland Stormwater Management – The New Manual ” using the 2007 Maryland Stormwater Design Manual. The Manual will be taught against the backdrop of TR55, TR20 and the traditional criteria; however, the focus will be on Environmental Site Design or (ESD) and will adhere to the specific use and design of each ESD feature. The course will feature specific, real world design situations with solution implementation from the MDE SWM Manual, as well as a review of design situations presented by the Manual. This course will include relevant computations and design. Environmentally sensitive design as per the new 2007 Storm Water Manual will be explored in detail.

The Maryland Society of Surveyor’s is an approved provider of Continuing Education as required by the Department of Licensing and Regulations (DLLR) for Land Surveyors. In addition, this course will meet the requirement for education for the Stormwater Management component of the License for new applicants. The course is designed to have 45 classroom hours in six, eight-hour sessions. Homework will be assigned. The class will be graded on a pass/fail basis. Students may miss only one equivalent 8-hour session. There will be a final examination on the last class day All students must satisfactorily complete the exam for certification. The course will be held at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

I.    Overview of the new SWM Manual Revised 2009 focusing on
      organizational structure, modifications and use for projects and individual

II.   Overview of TR55 and the use of TR55 within the context of the Manual.

III.  Overview of TR20 and the use of TR20 as a routing tool within the context
     of the manual.

IV.  Case study review of the examples within the actual text of the MDE
      Computations Manual with a focus on the next step, i.e., the design itself.
      The unified Stormwater Sizing Criteria will be discussed in detail. Examples
      will be worked in Class as a part of regular course work.

V.   The class will explore specific case studies featuring actual project
      simulations with implementation of a variety of stormwater ESD features
      including all the micro-scale practices of design situations presented by
      the Manual.  These will be hands on classroom situations requiring the
      student to work in small groups to solve actual design situations.

 VI.  Classroom evaluation of ESD techniques to
      meet SWM requirements using all of the tools
      approved in the manual.  Presentation of site
      finger-printing techniques, the development
      of the Stormwater Management Concepts
      Plan, and final engineering plan.

VII.  Limited discussion of weir/orifice/pipe design
       and HGL computations.

VIII.  Limited discussion of landscaping
        opportunities, construction specifications,
        the Maryland 378 regulations, testing, the
        NOI permit process, the NPDES permit
        process, stream designations, hot spots and
        related topics.




This course is NOT an entry-level course.  A background in drainage is a MUST.

MDE Manual - 2007
Environmental Site Design (ESD) Process & Computations July 2010
TR-55 Manual
