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.
