Water and Wastewater Reuse
Water-related problems are increasingly recognized as one of the most immediate and serious environmental threats to humankind. Water use has more than tripled globally since 1950, and one out of every six persons does not have regular access to safe drinking water. Lack of access to a safe water supply and sanitation affects the health of 1.2 billion people annually. Faced with these challenges, there is an urgent need to improve the efficiency of water consumption, and to augment the existing sources of water with more sustainable alternatives.
This course introduces the basic concepts of water and wastewater reuse, and applications of Environmentally Sound Technologies (ESTs) for enabling reuse. Furthermore, the course aims to illustrate that sustainable water management is relevant for regions with abundant water resources as well as for those with limited water resources. In particular, this course includes case studies from both developed and developing countries that highlight applications of the key concepts.
