This guide is designed to serve the county engineer as a format for the investigation of existing drainage patterns, the anslysis of rainfall frequencies and intensities, the determination of probable flow requirements, the hydraulic design of necessry channels, conduits, and structures, and the legal implications of artificial drainage systems. The methods and practices reported have been developed and applied by engineers for many years. Reference is often made to texts or handbooks for necessary charts, tables and design data. It is intended that this guide will serve as an instructional aid in the use and application of handbook information in the solution of highway drainage problems.
