Abstract: Should drainage design policies be more flexible, leaving the field more open to engineering judgment? Are some policies too loose or broad? Should design criteria more closely reflect the current methods and procedures prescribed by federal publications? Presented are guidelines for design criteria which are loose enough to allow pure, creative, and responsible engineering and yet be structured enough to encourage good design practices.
