Course detail

Wastewater Collection and Wastewater Treatment

FAST-BP002Acad. year: 2017/2018

Subject deals with drainage of urban areas with relation to hydrological, hydraulic and another aspect - - in particular structural-technological problems in designing of sewerage networks. Materials used for sewerage networks. It is related to reliability and control of sewerage networks. Basic normative details of design, expert opinion and operation of drainage in urbanized areas. Preparation for graduate students is directed to work in wide range of knowledge (prepare students for design activities, construction, legislation problems and engineering activities) in the water management.
