COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EV481 WATER RESOURCES PLAN & DESIGN 2014 1 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The course is concerned with effective use of water as a manageable natural resource. It begins with instruction on the tools required by water resource managers to make sound decisions in their field. The course assesses current needs for water and the structural (engineered) and non-structural approaches available to meet these needs. Elements of engineering design and the design process are introduced. The bulk of the course is concerned with assessment of the impacts of various water resources development activities on the economic, socio-cultural and ecological sectors of the environment. Methods for conducting tradeoff analyses among the engineered and environmental aspects of projects are developed and applied in a term project. The course makes use of case studies of current water resource projects. Visiting speakers represent the views of the Federal government and concerned public interest groups.
LESSONS: 40 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:

SCOPE
The course is concerned with effective use of water as a manageable natural resource. It begins with instruction on the tools required by water resource managers and engineers to make sound decisions in their field. The course assesses current needs for water and the structural (engineered) and non-structural approaches to meet these needs. Elements of engineering design and the design process are introduced. The bulk of the course is concerned with assessment of the impacts of various water resources development activities on the economic, socio-cultural and ecological sectors of the environment. Methods for conducting tradeoff analyses, to include the application of multi-attribute decision models, among the engineered and environmental aspects of projects are developed and applied in a term project. These real world term projects are conducted in student design teams. The course makes use of selected case studies of water resource projects. Visiting speakers represent the views of water resource professionals and a visit to a hydropower project provides practical experience in water resource planning and design.

SCOPE
The course is concerned with effective use of water as a manageable natural resource. It begins with instruction on the tools needed to plan and design an effective water resources project. The planning tools have applicability to any planning, expecially the complex planning required of an Army Officer. The course then asses the economic, environmental, engineering, and social/cultural impacts of an actual project. Real world contact with water resources professionals develops the students' understanding of the engineering process. Methods for conducting tradeoff analyses among the engineering, economic, social/cultural, and environmental aspect of projects are developed and applied. The course is taught on a seminar basis and makes use of case studies of water resource projects. Visiting speakers represent the views of water resource professionals and a visit to a hydro-power project provides practical experience in water resource planning and design.
