Hydro Science (HS) is a branch of science associated with engineering and technologies in hydraulics, hydrology, and water management. Its development is closely linked to the progress of human being civilization. Traditional HS has made a significant contribution to human living standard and health. The water treatment and supplying system and the city sewage system enabled people to have clean water to drink and have their wastewater removed. In addition, the irrigation hydraulic structures like channels and dams increased the product of agriculture to eliminate starvation in the world.
