What is Water Resource Engineering
Water Resource Engineering is the study of managing our most precious resource throughout the world: water. Water resources include drinking water and any water that must be stored or distributed from one place to another. This discipline is really all about fluid flow, how it behaves and how it is managed – but in extremely large quantities!
The Water Resource Engineering discipline considers the quality and logistics of all water systems used the world. While it may seem similar to Hydraulic engineering, the main difference is that a Water Resource Engineer is concernced with the technical aspects of how the water is stored and channelled to other locations.
Water Resource Engineers plan and manage the tasks that are required to maintain water quality. They ensure water can be channelled where it is needed in a safe and efficient way. Common projects which require Water Resource Engineers include wetland restoration, stormwater and sewerage system design and planning.
