Milwaukee is fortunate to be located along one of North America’s Great Lakes, which contain 20 percent of the world’s fresh water. These incredible resources for both recreational activities and economic development also comprise a fragile ecosystem that must be carefully managed and protected. Receive an overview from an environmental engineering perspective of the many aspects involved in water supply and pollution control for the urban environment. Understand how environmental engineering practices are used to protect the environment and the health of humans. Consider the components of water quality, the processing of drinking water as well as waste water, and see what challenges are faced in creating sustainable practices.
