Water supply is a very important field in environmental engineering. Most cities and human settlements around the world use surface water as a supply to meet their water requirements. With the advent of climate change, water pollution, and demographic growth, surface water is becoming increasingly scanty. Environmental engineers must deal with problems and finding solutions to make these sources accessible to as many people as possible.
This course will introduce you to environmental engineering as well as it will show the interrelationship between environmental engineering and water supply engineering. The main objectives of this course are to depict technical aspects of drinking water sources, units of water supply, water collection, and water distribution along with proper treatment of water to get safe and palatable water in an integrated way in a general area. There are a plethora of issues regarding the proper selection of water sources and methods of water supply based on different categories. Impurities in water are a prominent case of water supply.
Water treatment removes contaminants and undesirable components or reduces their concentration so that the water becomes fit for its desired end-use. The treatment is crucial to human health and allows humans to benefit from both drinking and irrigation use. you will learn about the choice of technologies and tools, ranging from low-cost to advanced options and various methods of water treatment so that people can get safe and palatable water from our day-to-day water supply.
