Today’s ever-changing climate is creating more unpredictable weather patterns and making drainage design all the more challenging; it’s also rendering historical flood data as less reliable and causing civil engineers to rethink their conventional approaches to flood mitigation. This session will explore innovative drainage solutions, covering the capturing, conveyance, retention, and cleaning of gravity-flow sewer water. Some of these solutions can be specified as direct alternatives to conventional sewer designs while others completely challenge the status-quo of typical drainage systems.
The desired learning outcomes from this webinar are to:
- Learn about the design, manufacturing, and installation of various drainage products and design alternatives to conventional conveyance products and stormwater management systems
- Understand the key structural and hydraulic factors which impact underground drainage design
- Provide value engineering to any drainage project by offering your clients more usable land to develop and saving them on product costs by opening specifications and increasing competition among manufacturers
About the Presenter
Tyson Dyck, P. Eng. received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Manitoba and has 7 years of experience working for underground drainage product manufacturers. His focus has been on the design, manufacturing, and installation of both plastic and concrete pipe, as well as the relevant testing standards associated with each. Over his career, he has managed drainage projects across Western Canada (MB-BC) by supporting consulting firms and municipalities with the appropriate ASTM and CSA standards associated with each drainage product
