This course discusses drinking water- its source, transmission and distribution. Both ground and surface sources are discussed. Methods of withdrawing from these sources are explained. It describes the numerous appurtenant structures needed for the purpose. Several technical terms used in the water works are explained. Example problems with solutions are presented.

Detailed presentation of transmitting the water from the source to the consumer is provided. Both gravity flow and pressure flow are discussed. Relevant formulas and nomographs needed to solve problems are included. Example problems with solutions are provided. Different means of transporting water including pipes, conduits, and tunnels etc, with needed appurtenant structures, are described.

The distribution of water is explained in detail. Description of the distribution network analysis using 'Hardy Cross' Method', 'Equivalent Pipe Method', and 'Method of Sections' are adequately presented. Numerical examples related to real life problems are presented along with solutions.

The storage needs of a community with consideration to the fluctuation in demand, fire fighting needs, and emergency reserve are explained.

This course is relevant for municipal engineers, utility directors, consulting engineers and engineers working in regulatory agencies.
