Incorporating Extreme Weather Event Considerations into the Alaska Highway Drainage Manual

There have been advancements in Alaska hydrology and in climate science since Chapter 7 (Hydrology) of the Alaska Highway Drainage Manual was last updated (June 1995). This project would bring this publication up-to-date by engaging researchers in the field to help draft the chapter to reflect the state of science in academia. The Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) recommends that states adopt design policies similar to those covered in its Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 17, which presents a framework for practitioners wishing to account for potential climatic changes over time.
