STORM DRAIN DESIGN MANUAL - PART G       

PREFACE

Part G of the manual covers the design of storm drains only. It presents the design criteria, standards, policies, and procedures to the new engineer and provides a reference source for the experienced designer. Other office or processing operations related to storm drain design are covered in other parts of the manual. The design of storm drains by City forces for the Los Angeles County Flood Control District or the State Division of Highways is not included in this manual.
