Municipal Sewer Systems: Case Studies

COURSE NO: C02-053
Municipal Sewer Systems: Case Studies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of sanitary sewer and storm sewer system operation. It also presents two case studies about 1) a small town sanitary sewer court case and subsequent decision, and 2) a storm sewer dispute in the same small town between its citizens and town hall and its subsequent settlement.


The purification of wastewater by our sanitary sewer systems preventing the pollution of our waterways and the channeling of rain water from our homes, streets, and roadways to prevent flooding should be of major concern to everyone. Prior to 1972, our nation's waterways were becoming open sewers. In 1972, Congress passed the Clean Water Act. Since then billions of dollars have been spent trying to reverse an alarming decline in water quality.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for sanitary engineers, civil engineers, chemical engineers, and other design professional or construction personnel interested in gaining a better understanding in the applications of municipal sewer systems.
