Introduction to Water Supply Engineering describes the concepts and principles of water supply engineering. Careers and roles in water supply engineering are explained and students explore the history and future of water treatment and supply. Best practices of facility design and in water contamination are described for students.
This course discusses the transmission and distribution of water supply to pump facilities and ultimately to end users. Techniques in estimating dry and wet weather flows into sanitary sewers are examined, as are the constraints of water supply production (e.g. minimum velocity slope and cover). Students are taught to estimate water quantity production and demand as they design their own small-scale treatment center and storm water supply system.
