Water and Wastewater Engineering

This course consists of two hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. The course provides a detailed examination of groundwater and surface water movement, availability and usage and the factors that impact and influence them. This course investigates how groundwater and surface water move, the impact of porosity and permeability, rainfall and drought. This course focuses on the importance of the entire watershed, the influence of the hydrological cycle, stream flow, floods, reservoirs and aquifers. This course also focuses on the mechanics that occurs when both installing a well and extracting water from it. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to relate their learning back to their future roles as operators and to identify how this learning will provide them with a strong foundation for making sounds decisions.
