Intended Audience: hydrologists, civil engineers, agricultural engineers, construction engineers


This comprehensive six hour course describes basic design principles of embankment and excavation ponds as well as construction requirements. Other topics include: water needs, preliminary soil investigations, watershed stormwater runoff estimation, basin sealing, spillways and inlets, and operation/maintenance. This course is intended for hydrologists, civil engineers, agricultural engineers, construction engineers, municipal engineers, geotechnical engineers and environmental engineers. An attendee of this course will gain knowledge about planning, design, and construction of embankment and excavated ponds.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to:
  • Identify the features of embankment and excavated ponds and the differences between them.
  • Determine the items to be covered in a preliminary investigation.
  • Estimate storm water runoff quantity and rate using the runoff curve number method.
  • Estimate the time of concentration for a watershed for a given flow length, average watershed slope, and runoff curve number.
  • Understand the general features of a hooded or canopy inlet spillway and a drop inlet spillway, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each.
  • Complete spillway design calculations using tables and figures given in the course file.
  • Estimate embankment end area for known embankment height, side slopes, and top width.
  • Estimate earthfill requirements for an embankment for known end areas and embankment length.
  • Compare and contrast alternative pond sealing methods.
