The Queensland Urban Drainage Manual (QUDM) is an engineering guideline that addresses the technical, legal, regulatory and environmental aspects of effective drainage systems. It provides details of appropriate design methods and computational procedures, and covers both hydrologic and hydraulic procedures
This course is delivered in partnership with Steve Hughes and Jack Hu of Storm Water Consulting.
The fourth edition (2016) of QUDM has seen some significant changes from the previous edition (2013) of QUDM. This workshop provides practical insights into these updates and also discusses a number of specific topics in more detail.
This half day workshop focuses on the revisions and additions to the 2016 edition of QUDM and covers what has been revised and added to the following topics:
Lawful point of discharge
Common law (stormwater/flooding)
Detention basin design
Minimum floor levels
Scheme ranking methods for safety
Who should attend?
This course has been specifically designed for workers who have used the previous (2013) version of QUDM and are with involved in technical planning and design of major and/or minor drainage systems that impact ‘on: urban planning and development; asset management and infrastructure development; environmental considerations; and community expectations.
Typical attendees include:
Participants will gain a practical understanding of QUDM that will:
Encourage uniformity in urban drainage design practices throughout Queensland
Provide information on current best practice urban drainage management, with the exception of water quality management, which is addressed within other publications
Improve Queensland’s resilience to severe storms and climate change through the proper design and management of urban drainage systems.
