Water Quality Management

Students in the Water Quality Management Program learn about distribution, collection and treatment of water and wastewater through hands-on laboratory analysis. You'll learn about wastewater reclamation and reuse, and how toxins are removed from water. Water regulatory agencies and laws are also learned. Students completing this course of study will be prepared to take the level 1 exam.

Dedicated scholarships are provided by MillerCoors for students 21 and over.
