Course description

In Water Distribution System Design: Part 1 - System Components, you'll learn ...

  • The design and function of each component of a distribution system, including mains, storage tanks, valves, hydrants and service connections
  • Storage tank sizing and reasons to use ground storage and elevated storage
  • General sizing criteria for mains along with considerations when selecting the appropriate pipe materials
  • Recommendations for spacing and location of valves and hydrants

Overview

Length: 37 pages

Billions of dollars are spent every year upgrading and expanding existing water distribution systems. Many times the design reflects pipe sizing and material practices based on "this is how it’s always been done." This practice often results in designs that are more expensive than necessary. Part 1 of this course will provide design engineers and public works officials with more complete information on the options available which will provide them with tools to incorporate more cost efficient practices.

Part 1 will cover the design of distribution systems, including mains, storage tanks, valves, hydrants and service connections. It will include a discussion about the function of pumps in the distribution system, but is not a complete course on design of pumps. A description of the function of each component of the distribution system will be included.

The discussion on mains will cover general sizing criteria along with parameters that should be considered when selecting the appropriate pipe materials. Storage tank criteria will cover consideration of operational storage and fire flow storage, along with advantages of separate inlets and outlets and the choice of ground storage or elevated storage.

Recommendations for spacing and location of valves and hydrants will be covered. Service connections are an often overlooked part of the design of the distribution system, but one of the components that is most important to the utility, because they are often the most troublesome. Ideas related to better design will be included. Pump stations are a key component of the majority of water distribution systems. This course will cover how pumps function within the distribution system and will include a discussion of common misunderstandings of how pumping systems work within the system.
