CD4WC Cost effective development of urban wastewater systems for Waterframework directive compliance
| Country: EU Projects
| Start Date:
Project Type: RTD
| Contract Number: EVK1-CT-2002-00106
| Organisation Type:
Water and sanitation-->Wastewater
Water resources and their management -->Water resources and their management Overview
| Project objectives:
This project deals with public sewer and storm water networks of any dimension. It includes problems caused by ageing, structural failures, inflow/infiltration,
exfiltration (leaking) and insufficient capacity which can cause floods, pollution of receiving waters, pollution of ground water and soil, treatment plant
impacts and increasing maintenance costs.
The ultimate project goal is to develop a suite of tools, which provides the most cost-efficient system of maintenance, repair and rehabilitation of sewer
networks, with the aim to guarantee security of sanitary sewage collection and storm water drainage in order to meet social, health, economic and environmental
requirements. This will be done within the context of integrated catchment management and the strategic objective of ensuring security of water resources.
The tools will include a set of Performance Indicators, models for sewer deterioration and methods for multi-criteria decision making.
