COURSE NO: C03-034
An Introduction to Water Supply, Treatment and Storage in Cold Regions
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides introductory information about special design considerations, equipment, materials and construction methods for water supply, treatment and storage in cold regions. Topics covered in this course include water supply, treatment and storage for facilities in Arctic and Subarctic regions.  References in the professional literature must be consulted in concert with application of this material.


The design, construction and maintenance of utility systems are all affected by the special environmental conditions found in the Arctic and Subarctic. These conditions include adverse temperatures, wind, and snow; high costs; remoteness of locations, limited availability of construction materials and labor; need for fuel additives, synthetic lubricants, oils and greases for construction equipment; thermal stresses; frost heaving and permafrost.


This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil, environmental and mechanical engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking to learn about water supply, treatment and storage systems, facilities and equipment in arctic and subarctic regions.
