ENWC 103 - Land and Water Management (3cr.)

Credit(s): 3
Component: Lecture
This course uses an engineering approach to study land and water management strategies for non-engineering students. Learn the fundamental principles involved in the sustainable management of soil and water resources through the examination of hydrologic and erosion processes. Important environmental topics covered in this course include soils, storm water management, nonpoint source pollution, water and wastewater treatment, wetlands, rainfall, runoff, groundwater, erosion control, and irrigation and drainage. Using basic algebraic principles, students will design vegetative waterways, calculate stormwater runoff, determine evapotranspiration rates, and design basic irrigation and drainage systems.
