Aim of course

Improved understanding of the urban water cycle with a focus on health related water quality issues. To acquire a basic overview on methods allowing for hazard characterisation, exposure and risk analysis and to derive appropriate measures for chemical/microbial water quality management. To know basic water quality hazards, respective mode of actions and their occurrence, fate and treatability within the urban water cycle.

Subject of course

1) The urban water cycle: water availability, water abstraction, water supply and water use, potential impacts on water quality (groundwater, surface water).

2) Chemical vs. biological hazards, environmental vs. human health, modes of (detrimental) action.

3) Evaluating the negative effects of chemical/microbial hazards; derivation of threshold-values;

4) Water quality targets, international guidelines and standards.

5) Chemical/microbial risk assessment along the urban water cycle: hazard identification, exposure assessment, risk characterisation, quality targets.

6) Hazard and risk management: waste water disposal and treatment; sanitation and disinfection, selected methods of advanced water and waste water treatment (physical, chemical, biological).

Additional information

In SS2008 the course will be held as block course in June 2018.

This course is part of the basic study programme of the Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems http://waterresources.at/

The lecture is held in English as block course.
