- Learning Outcomes
- On successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Analyse water supply and demand requirements, and design a small water reticulation system.
2. Evaluate hydrological parameters and design an urban storm water management system.
3. Determine waste water quantities and design a waste water reticulation system.
4. Appraise the requirements of water and waste water pumping installations and optimise design.
5. Evaluate integrated water management approaches.
- • Water supply sources; Water demand; Water reticulation system components; Water reticulation analysis; Reticulation installation and maintenance; Water reservoirs.
• Hydrological cycle; Surface run-off determination; Infiltration; Storm water reticulation components and design; Storm water buffering; Storm water disposal; Impact of storm water run-off.
