Water supply schemes are a basic necessity of every town/city. With growing concerns over managing urban water demands along with resource sustainability, concept of efficient and smart urban water supply systems is progressively getting more pertinent. Incorporating sustainable design and operation principles based on innovative water technologies such as cost-effective treatment solutions, automated supervisory controls, leakage detection and control etc. into water supply systems improves water supply from sustainable perspectives. This course aims to discuss the technical aspects of modern systems for drinking water treatment and distribution in an integrated way. The course will cover topics from traditional aspects of demand calculations and source selections to the up-to-date treatment methods, network design tools etc. The course will also provide insight to smart water supply systems including automation, leakage detection. The financial sustainability of water supply systems and sustainable water pricing models will also be covered.
