Civil Engineering is a very broad field, covering branches like structural, geotechnical, hydrology, surveying, transportation, power line design, environmental, urban planning, site development, etc. Do you have a specific field of interest?

Water supply is outside my area of expertise, so you might want to do a google search or check with Amazon. But first I trust you have taken the basic prerequisite courses common to most engineering disciplines, like algebra, trig, calculus,physics, chemistry, CAD, and the engineering sciences, if you want to be any kind of an Engineer ( with a very few exceptions for a handful of persons coming in from the back door).
