Course Synopsis:

Did you know?  Traditional low volume road building techniques can impair the mechanisms that provide for the natural disposition of moisture on forested slopes, beginning with denuding of vegetation from the clearing width and stripping of duff and humus from ground surfaces within the roadway corridor.

This course discusses water/road interaction in terms of surface water concentrations on road segments and subsurface flows intercepted by road cuts.

Course Objectives:

This course teaches the following specific engineering knowledge and skills regarding Minimizing Low Volume Road Water Displacement:

  • Introduction on Low Volume Road influences on hydrology  

  • Summary of existing methods for minimizing related water concentrations and flow distances away from the road corridor

  • Concepts for minimizing water displacement
