SEWER DESIGN MANUAL - PART F    

PREFACE

Part F of the Manual covers Bureau of Engineering sewer design. It presents the design criteria, standards, policies, and procedures to the new Engineer and provides a reference source for the experienced Engineer. These criteria, standards, policies and procedures are intended as guidelines. Each sewer project should be considered unique. The criteria shall, insofar as possible, be followed but cannot supplant the application of sound engineering judgment by the Engineer. Other policies, practices, procedures and processing operations related to sewer design are covered in other Parts of the Bureau Manual.

It is presumed that users of this Manual have certain minimum qualifications and proficiencies. Therefore, Part F of this Manual is not intended as a textbook in sewer design. It is intended that the user, having certain minimum qualifications and proficiencies, will be able to understand the policies and practices detailed in this Manual and design sanitary sewers competently.

It shall be presumed that the user has acquired proficiency in:
a.Mathematics - including college level Algebra, Plane Geometry and Trigonometry.
b.Hydraulics - including hydrostatics, pressure flow in pipes, open channel flow, both steady and non steady, as well as uniform and nonuniform.
c.Engineering statics and dynamics.
