CRP 387C.2 / LAR 385
Water Resources Planning provides an opportunity to study and understand general planning principles in water resource management and planning as they are applied to contemporary and future water needs. The course emphasizes real-world challenges and current water resource planning issues through readings, class lectures, discussions, activities, and site visits. Throughout the US and globally, watershed management practices, flood protection, stormwater management, and provision of water and wastewater services significantly impact public health, social justice, environmental quality, and economic growth. Planners, managers, engineers, designers, and public policymakers must be able to evaluate and synthesize these interactions in order to achieve more sustainable water management.
