CIVL5665: Water Supply for Towns and Cities

2024 unit information

Students will learn practical civil engineering aspects of the approaches taken to supply towns and cities with water. This will compliment material taught in CIVL5670 (Reservoir, Stream and Coastal Engineering) to provide an understanding of conventional drinking water sources (surface water and groundwater), water quality considerations, and conventional treatment processes (coagulation, flocculation, filtration and disinfection). Students will learn about more recently developing trends for drinking water supply, including seawater desalination in the use of purified recycled water for drinking.
