This course provides guidance for the planning, design, supervision, construction, and operation of dewatering and pressure relief systems and of seepage cutoffs for deep excavations for structures. It presents: description of various methods of dewatering and pressure relief techniques for determining groundwater conditions, characteristics of pervious aquifers, and dewatering requirements; guidance for specifying requirements for dewatering and seepage control measures; guidance for determining the adequacy of designs and plans prepared by contractors; procedures for designing, installing, operating, and checking the performance of dewatering systems for various types of excavations; and descriptions and design of various types of cutoffs for controlling groundwater.
We will be covering Army Corps of Engineers document "Dewatering and Groundwater Control" chapters 5-8. In these chapters we will be discussing installation of dewatering and ground water control systems, operation and performance control, and contract specifications
The student will take a short 10 question quiz that is published at the back of the course.
