Sewer Sediment and Control

COURSE NO: C04-009
Sewer Sediment and Control
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes sources of sewer sediment and the impact of those sediments, methodology for quantifying sediment-solids in sewer systems and sediment control methods. This course provides an integrated approach to manage the solids generated in urban wet weather flows, both on the land surface and in drainage sewer systems.


Threats to the quality of receiving waters by discharges from urban-storm-generated WWF, including combined sewer overflow and polluted runoff from urban streets, are well known. During many storm events, large volumes of stormwater are drained via street inlets into the urban sewer system. The storm runoff washes off street dust-and-dirt and pollutants from catchment surfaces into the sewer system.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical/plumbing engineers, civil engineers and other professionals who are involved in sewer design and maintenance.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Sources of sewer sediment and impacts
  • Estimation of urban watershed solids loading
  • Methodology for quantifying sediment-solids in sewer system 
  • Methods for field sampling and monitoring of hydrogen sulfide in sewer 
  • Sewer sediment control: sewer flushing
  • A case study of sewer flushing system design and operation
