Why a Drainage Engineer?

Why not a plumber? The jobs of drainage engineers and plumbers cross over more than any other trade, but in general terms, plumbers deal with the internal systems of the home, whereas drainage engineers are concerned with the external systems, ensuring water, sewage and other materials can flow efficiently. Drainage engineers are responsible for identifying why systems fail and providing a solution.
