Design of Small Water Systems
This Webinar provides guidance and criteria for the design of small water supply, treatment, and distribution systems. Water quality, water quantity, water sources, water treatment, pumping, storage and distribution are discussed. The course materials are based entirely on the Engineering Manual EM 1110-2-503 of US Army Corps of Engineers: Design of Small Water Systems. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
At the conclusion of this course, the student will:
