Vegetation Management at Levees, Floodwalls and Dams

COURSE NO: C03-037
PDH CREDIT: 3
PRICE: $72
Vegetation Management at Levees, Floodwalls and Dams
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidelines to assure that landscape planting and vegetation management provide aesthetic and environmental benefits without compromising the reliability of levees, floodwalls, embankment dams, and appurtenant structures.  The dimensions of the vegetation-free and root-free zones defined in this document provide the minimum acceptable buffer between vegetation and flood damage reduction structures.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil and hydraulic engineers involved with the design and maintenance of levees, floodwalls, embankment dams, and appurtenant structures.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about proper landscape planting: objectives and engineering requirements
  • Understanding the need for vegetation-free zone and vegetation-management zone
  • Understanding the areas of concern involving root impacts and root-free zone
  • Learning about treatment of levees, floodwalls, embankment dams, and other structures
  • Learning about feasibility analysis, planting berms, planters and irrigation systems
  • Learning about flood-fighting and structure maintenance
  • Understanding the goals of plant material selection and planting maintenance
  • Understanding the purpose of appropriate ground cover in the vegetation-free zone
  • Learning how to treat borrow sites and spoil sites
  • Learning about vegetation-related maintenance and repair
  • Deciding when removal of non-compliant vegetation is appropriate
