CE-058 Sewer Sediment and Control: 4 PDH
Description of the Sewer Sediment and Control course
The Sewer Sediment and Control online PDH course is a part of the Civil Engineering category of courses. Threats to the quality of receiving waters by discharges from urban-storm-generated WWF, including combined sewer overflow (CSO) and polluted runoff from urban streets, are well known. During many storm events, large volumes of stormwater are drained via street inlets into the urban sewer system. The storm runoff washes off street dust-and-dirt and pollutants from catchment surfaces into the sewer system. Furthermore, the unsteady-state storm inflow resuspends sewer sediment that has settled in the sewer bottom, causing it to be transported downstream. Recently, researchers reported that sewer sediment deposited from prior storms contributed a significant amount of pollutants into receiving waters. This often creates a highly concentrated pollutant load. In most cases, CSO carries resuspended sewer sediment and generates a highly concentrated pollutant load sometimes associated with the “first-flush” phenomenon. In most cases, CSO carries this resuspended sewer sediment into local waterways. Sewer sediment deposited during dry weather flow (DWF) contributes between 30% to 80% of pollutants into receiving waters.
This course provides an integrated approach to manage the solids generated in urban wet weather flows (WWFs), both on the land surface and in drainage sewer systems.
This course in intend for civil engineers and other professional engineers and construction managers interested in sewer sediment and control systems.
At the end of the course, you will learn about:
- Sources of sewer sediment and impacts
- Estimation of urban watershed solids loading
- Methodology for quantifying sediment-solids in sewer system
- Methods for field sampling and monitoring of hydrogen sulfide in sewer
- Sewer sediment control: sewer flushing
- How to assess the cost-effectiveness of sewer flushing technology from different performance perspectives
Refunds and Cancellation Policies
The course is accepted by the Professional Engineering boards in states listed on this page. In an unlikely case the course is not accepted by the board listed on this page, we will refund the full payment and will pay for you to take another course of equivalent monetary and PDH / CEU value.

Length of the Course / Activity
This course is intended to be studied at self-pace and it should take on average of 4 hour to read and be able to comprehend the material to successfully past the online quiz.
To receive the certificate of completion for the above 4 PDH online course, you will need to take a 25-question multiple choice quiz based on the reference material supplied and pass with minimum score of 70%. There is no time limit for the quiz and it can be taken multiple times until a passing score of 70% is achieved.
Certificate of Completion
Once you achieve a passing score of 70% on the quiz you will receive and be able to print your Certificate of Completion as a record of your continuing education. PDH Star will keep a record of your certificate for the duration as required by your state of licensure. You will be able to log on to your account and view and print your past Certificate of Completion.
This course is accepted in all states mandating continuing education:
AK, AL, AR, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WI, WV, and WY
