The paper discusses a program structured to assist the design consultant or the agency reviewer by means of a menu driven format. A flood routing microcomputer program developed by the Soil Conservation Service and adopted by South Florida Water Management District staff is utilized as the main source program in the trench analysis. The trench design program incorporates soil characteristics readily available from soil survey catalogs. Contrasting design techniques are provided in the program to accommodate changing soil and water table conditions.
