Learning outcomes Objectives:
Provide students with knowledge in the fields of drinking water supply and wastewater drainage, enabling them to design, operation and maintenance of water and wastewater networks and infrastructure.

(a) Mastery of the design and dimensioning of adductor pipelines and reservoirs;
(b) Mastery of design, operation and modeling of public water distribution networks;
(c) Mastery of design, operation and modeling of public wastewater drainage networks;
(d) Understanding the design and operation of building water supply networks and building wastewater and rainwater drainage networks.
Syllabus 1. WATER SUPPLY SYSTEMS: Basis for water supply projects. Water supply systems. Reservoirs. Sizing of adductor pipelines and reservoirs. Accessories. Economic study of adduction systems.

2. PUBLIC WATER DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS: Types of networks. Traced in plan and in profile. Sizing criteria. Calculation of networks by the HardyCross method. Accessories. Network modeling using EPANET software.

3. PUBLIC WASTEWATER DRAINAGE NETWORKS: Types of networks. Traced in plan. Hydraulic-sanitary sizing criteria. Drawing in longitudinal profile. Modeling of drainage networks using the SWWM software.

4. BUILDING WATER SUPPLY AND WASTEWATER AND RAINWATER DRAINAGE NETWORKS: Design of building networks for water supply, wastewater drainage and rainwater drainage. Elements of the networks. Sizing and calculation criteria.
