Global water resources are under relentless pressure from development, pollution, and climate shifts. Billions are threatened by unsafe water, drought, floods, and failure of deteriorating water systems. To tackle these challenges, integrated solutions require effective technology, management, and governance. The course prepares advanced undergraduates and graduate students to apply these solutions across the water industry. Case studies and student presentations address a range of global water issues as well as U.S. and Colorado water issues. Students without hydrology prerequisite may contact instructor to discuss suitability of the course.
