General slight knowledge on systems of water supply: captation, pumping, storage and distribution. General aspects of the nets of distribution and beddings of the respective hydraulical calculation. Mains of quality for supplying water and conventional and alternative conception of the treatment systems and procedural projects. Beddings and predesign of the unit operations of chemical oxidation, coagulation-flocculation, sedimentation, granular filtration, separation with membranes and disinfection. Examples of treatment systems. Study of cases and visit of study to a water treatment plant (WTP).
