Iowa DOT Culvert & Bridge Backwater Program Workshop


Water overflowing onto roadway

Description

The workshop will cover the new U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) StreamStats program for estimating design discharges for sizing bridges and culverts. We will also go over the use of the Iowa DOT Annual Exceedence-Probability Discharges (AEPD) spreadsheet for calculating and comparing peak discharges using other methodologies. In addition, we will review the Iowa DOT Culvert program and Bridge Backwater program with example problems.

Why Attend?

This workshop will be beneficial for anyone working with the Iowa DOT AEPD spreadsheet, the Iowa DOT Bridge Backwater Program, the Iowa DOT Culvert Program, or the USGS Streamstats (Version 4) software.
