This one-day course will give a well-rounded introduction to below ground drainage principles. Attendees will be able to identify the different types of foul and surface water systems, understand how they interact and see how manipulating falls can affect discharge capacities. The course will also consider important ancillary equipment including petrol interceptors, grease traps, soakaways and septic tanks. It will cover when they need to be used and how to incorporate them into a design. Attendees will also consider how surface water systems are moving from fast water to slow water systems and how that will impact on a design.
