SIWAWI - Future substances and microbiological challenges for municipal urban water management

Project: Research project

Description

The project aims at the identification of possible future challenges for the municipal wastewater management due to substance and microbiological pollution. The results of the project will serve as a basis for decisions at the political level by compiling all potential emissions, which mainly come from the water management of settlements, their mitigation measures and the respective costs.

In the sense of a comprehensive approach, all entry pathways from the municipal wastewater management into the environment are considered in the project. Specifically, these are i) purified municipal wastewater from wastewater treatment plants, ii) wastewater from combined sewer overflows, iii) stormwater discharges from separating sewer systems, iv) road wastewater discharges (as far as of municipal origin, i.e. no highways) and v) sewage sludge.
