Water Resources and Waste Engineering

Description

The water sector continues to face challenges due to increased demand on declining surface water resources. The climate change factor has compounded the water stress scenario, requiring water managers across the world to provide sector leaders able to plan, develop and implement water resources projects and programmes.

Waste water is water that has been affected in quality by anthropogenic influence.  Waste water is treated at a waste water treatment plant or a septic tank.  Treated waste water is discharged into receiving water.  Sewage is wastewater that is contaminated with faeces and or urine sewerage is the physical infrastructure including pipes, pumps screens channels etc
