Hydrologic Engineering Requirements for Reservoirs - Part 3
This online engineering PDH course provides information on the hydrologic engineering investigations for the planning and design of reservoir projects.
Part 3 presents the storage requirements for various project purposes.
In general, reservoir flood storage is considered when flood damage at a number of locations on a river can be significantly reduced by the construction of one or more reservoirs. It is also considered when a reservoir site immediately upstream from one damage center provides more economical flood risk management than local flood risk management works.
Whenever such reservoirs can serve needs other than flood risk management, the integrated design and operation of the project for multipurpose use should be considered. The water stored in the conservation pool can serve many purposes, including water supply, navigation, fish and wildlife, and hydroelectric power. This course covers the storage requirements for various project purposes.
This 7 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers as well as others interested in expanding their knowledge on the hydrologic engineering considerations for the planning and design of reservoir projects.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the planning, design, and evaluation of flood control features of a reservoir
- Understanding the commonly used terminologies pertaining to flood control and reservoirs
- Understanding the water requirements for different purposes along with water quality considerations
- Learning about the different methods for estimating the conservation storage
- Learning about the relationship between reservoir storage capacity and reservoir yield
- Exploring the different computational and simulation methods used
- Gaining an overview of the effects of reservoir sedimentation on water control
