Learning Outcomes

Students will learn about principles, operations, and simulation of separate and combined sewer systems. Students get familiar with technical plants for stormwater treatment. They can explain operating principles of individual system components as well as assess their suitability for specific applications and apply basic dimensioning approaches.


Lectures are followed by several guided site visits, descriptions, and evaluations of different stormwater treatment plants: stormwater sedimentation tanks, stormwater overflow tanks, and retention soil filters. Settlement characteristics and dimensioning approaches for the design of stormwater treatment facilities will be discussed and evaluated during the site visits. The course wraps up with group laboratory work to learn measurements for sedimentation column and sedimentation basin experiments to evaluate sedimentation characteristics and conduct relevant measurements.
