This book is intended to serve as curriculum for civil engineering courses on public water supply. Arranged in ten stand-alone modules, the course materials address sanitation of public water supplies, consumption rates, quality and water sources, design and financial implications for drinking water companies, and specific details about the drinking water used in the Netherlands. This book will be useful to those who study water as well as engineers who want to compare one type of service infrastructure to another.
