Wastewater Management

Wastewater Management

 

 

The goal of the programme is to provide the new approach to wastewater management and to deal with the issues in an environmentally-conscious manner, being aware of this as it is one of the larger problems faced by the most major cities in the modern world, with overflow causing severe pollution problems and increasing population densities stretching existing infrastructure to the breaking point. In wastewater treatment mechanical, chemical and biological processes are needed in order to efficiently eliminate undesirable pollutants and potentially harmful pathogens.  The topics involve types, sources and characteristics of wastewater and its effects to the environment in particular grey and black waters; municipal, industrial wastewaters, landfill leachate; storm water runoff, health risks; effective water waste management – policies and instruments, integrated approach, and importance of education; central wastewater treatment plant at all three distinct tiers regarding basic processes as well as primary, secondary and tertiary treatment; decentralized wastewater treatment – solutions for villages, settlements and individual users, i.e. compact small wastewater treatment plants, and natural treatment systems; wastewater as a source, in particular, water reuse, nutrient recycling, sustainable solutions of sludge processing.
