This course introduces the fundamental concepts of watershed management planning and principles. It encompasses the water quality issues, storm water management, drought management, soil erosion, rainwater harvesting and watershed modeling.

Finally the course provides inputs for integrated watershed management. This course will help in the planning and development of a watershed for students of civil engineering.

Contents:

Watershed Management concept and principles, Assessment of water resources i.e. surface water and ground water in a watershed: rainfall-runoff and ground water analysis.

Soil erosion estimation. Water quality and guidelines. Watershed Modelling, Drought assessment and management. Integrated watershed management.
