Water Quality in the Environment, Soil 404/504 University of Idaho, Spring 2019

M, W (Lecture) 10:30-11:20am & T Lab (2:00-4:50pm)
Clean water is essential to support healthy ecosystems and societies. One of the most critical challenges of environmental management is achieving social and economic growth while fostering water quality. This class is designed to expose students to techniques, approaches and strategies to monitor water quality, and to asses non-point source pollution {e.g. TMDL) and its effects on downstream ecosystems. In this class, you will learn about the physical, chemical and biological processes that influence water quality. You will also learn about watershed modeling tools, the role of best management practices, and you will develop your ability to interpret stream water quality data across different types of land uses. In the lab section, you will be introduced to water quality sampling and analysis.
Students with a background in hydrology (SOIL/ENVS 450 or CE 325 or FOR 462), chemistry (CHEM 111/lllL or CHEM 112/112L), and soils (SOIL 205) are particularly encouraged to take the class. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns! ebrooks@uidaho.edu / aline@uidaho.edu
