WATER-132 - Water Supply - Stephanie Anagnoson
Our class, Water Supply, is as much about water demand management as it is about water supply.
In this class, we learn water supply management, take a virtual tour of four major water infrastructure projects in California, investigate alternative water supplies and learn how to manage water demand with water loss programs, water rates, and regulations as well as conservation programs. Other topics include stakeholder engagement and water rights.
In this course, you will:
- Compare and contrast surface and groundwater supplies.
- Assess water rights and stakeholder analysis.
- Describe four major water development projects.
- Analyze alternative water supplies.
- Evaluate water demand in terms of regulations, water loss, water rates as well as conservation programs.
What to Expect in this Course
Through reading the textbook, watching videos and participating in discussions, you will learn about the water supply and demand. There are required weekly quizzes as well as weekly discussion posts. There is a final exam. Everything, including quizzes, discussion posts and the final exam, is open book.
This is an asynchronous class. This means there is no fixed meeting time each week. You have to work on your own, engage with me and other students in Canvas email and in discussions (and in comments on your work) and make sure to turn in the work each Saturday by 11:59 p.m.
Types of Assessments
Quizzes and multi-part project with discussion posts.
