In this program, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills needed for monitoring water quality and identifying and controlling sources of water pollution. You’ll learn the physical, chemical, and biological impacts of human activity on the urban watershed and technology-based assessment methods (such as GIS). You’ll also gain insights into approaches to protect and restore healthy functions of watersheds. This program covers laws, regulations, and policies that promote the health and quality of streams and ways to ensure compliance with water quality standards and criteria.
