Review of Advanced Water Distribution Concepts (Zoom)

For Grades D3 & D4

Fridays, Nov. 20 – Dec. 18, 2020, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM (No class on 11/27 & 12/11)

This 3 week course will focus on presenting the topics necessary to prepare for the Grade 3 and 4 Distribution exam. This will be done through a series of classroom instruction,  weekly homework assignments and a 25 question practice exam on the final week of the course. It will include an in-depth discussion on regulations, equipment trouble-shooting, administrative duties and complex math problems involving such things as hydraulics, thrust block design and financial planning. Students will receive a student binder that will contain the instructional PowerPoints as well as weekly homework assignments. There is no required textbook for this course, but it is strongly recommended that students have access to a reference textbook such as the Sacramento State, “Water Distribution System Operation and Maintenance Manual” or the AWWA “Water Distribution” Manual (Grades 3 & 4).
