Understand water movement in terrestrial and aquatic systems and how it impacts pollutant movement.

An emphasis in water quality provides students with an understanding of water movement in terrestrial and aquatic systems and how this water movement impacts pollutant movement. In addition students will understand how the presence of pollutants in aquatic systems impacts the water quality and how watersheds can be managed to minimize the presence of pollutants and their impact on human and environmental health.
