Chair of Urban Water Management

Urban Water Management is a classic component of construction engineering and deals with the water cycle and related material flows in urban and rural areas. Basic aims are safeguarding of municipal hygiene, water and resource protection ensuring convenience and safety of urban people. Special topics in research are for instance alternative sanitary systems for sparsely populated and high density areas, reduction of water pollution caused by combined sewer overflows by development of offshore storage and advanced treatment systems, climate-friendly energy production in wastewater treatment plants and development and optimisation of treatment technologies.
