Basic Civil Engineering - Water Supply (RV-6863)
Water: It exists in many states, but for our purposes, the water that exists in ponds, rivers, oceans, and in the pores of the earth is what we need. We need to get the water from these locations into our homes at a pressure we can use and in a state of cleanliness we can live with - practically and 'for real'. This 1 hour interactive online course gives you the basic building blocks, the formulas needed and the general assumptions made to get that water from there to here. It explains and de-mystifies the process one needs to go through, both for a small home and for a city, to insure that the water supply we create will be both safe and will work! This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end.
