Description:

Join us on September 10, from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern for Hydraulic Tour of Standard NRCS Inlet Risers. This webinar will describe USDA-NRCS riser inlets for watershed dams. USDA-ARS research on various riser configurations informed the current standard NRCS riser design. Other NRCS inlet risers exist for specific design situations. 

Maintenance concerns for continued optimum riser performance will be discussed. Finally, this webinar will explore how NRCS criteria protects earth spillways by requiring separation between the riser crest and auxiliary spillway crest.

Learning objectives attendees will receive from this webinar:

  • Learn how field performance and ARS research have shaped the NRCS standard Dx3D riser.
  • Understand hydraulic considerations for sizing a standard NRCS riser.
  • Select NRCS design hydrographs for evaluating riser performance.
  • Discuss riser capacity interaction with earth and structural auxiliary spillways.
  • Learn about typical NRCS riser maintenance considerations.

PDHS AVAILABLE:

  • This course qualifies for 2 PDHs.
