Hydrological engineering

"An engineering specialty that focuses on water resources. Hydrological engineering is chiefly concerned with the flow and storage of water, principally water and sewage. It is the study of the properties, distribution, and circulation of water on the surface of the land, in the soil and underlying rocks, and in the atmosphere Topics commonly covered include urban drainage, water supply, wastewater treatment, river management and coastal protection. Hydrological engineering also focuses on preventing floods and lessening the effects of floods, droughts and other natural disasters. Means, Hydraulic and Hydrologic engineers work to prevent the supply water for cities, industry and irrigation, to treat wastewater, to protect beaches, and to manage and redirect rivers. Hydraulic engineering is the application of fluid mechanics principles to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement, and use of water."
