AASHTO Model Drainage Manual
AASHTO Model Drainage Manual 3rd Edition The Model Drainage Manual compiles generic design policies and state-of-the practice design procedures, including example problems, in order to provide a foundation on which any Federal, State, or local agency can produce its own customized drainage policy and procedure manual.

The AASHTO Task Force on Hydrology and Hydraulics, in cooperation with the FHWA Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP), has assisted in writing this AASHTO Model Drainage Manual This comprehensive drainage manual provides guidance on most aspects of highway drainage. Design theories, concepts, manuals, policies and procedures are condensed and written for use by the designer. Where appropriate, relevant existing AASHTO guidelines are given and/or referenced.
