The design of water and energy systems has advanced from a cost-benefit basis to the incorporation of quantitative assessments of environmental burdens and the human and environmental risks associated with competing options. This course will equip students with the ability to apply life cycle assessment for quantifying environmental burdens, and an understanding of the factors that define human health and environmental risks. The latter include the presence of chemicals and pathogenic organisms, and the reliability of engineered systems.
