Course Description Design of water supply systems, storm drains, sanitary sewers, and lift stations.
This course is designed to give seniors and first year graduate students in civil and
Course Objectives environmental engineering the ability to design the complete water supply and sewer
systems (both sanitary sewer and storm drain), including all necessary pump station design.
Students will study and analyze the design criteria of overall water supply and sewer system;
Learning and analyze the wells and reservoir and service storage for the water supply system. They
Objectives will learn to layout and design a water distribution system, layout the gravity sanitary sewer
and storm drain system; and layout and design a pump station.

USC seeks to maintain an optimal learning environment. General principles of academic honesty include the concept
of respect for the intellectual property of others, the expectation that individual work will be submitted unless
otherwise allowed by an instructor, and the obligations both to protect one’s own academic work from misuse by
others as well as to avoid using another’s work as one’s own.

All students are expected to understand and abide by these principles. SCampus, the Student Guidebook, contains
the Student Conduct Code in Section 11.00, while the recommended sanctions are located in Appendix A:

Students will be referred to the Office of Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards for further review, should
there be any suspicion of academic dishonesty. The Review process can be found at:


Any student requesting academic accommodations based on a disability is required to register with Disability
Services and Programs (DSP) each semester. A letter of verification for approved accommodations can be obtained
from DSP. Please be sure the letter is delivered to me (or to TA) as early in the semester as possible.
