Course detail

Sewerage Systems – town drainage

FAST-DPB030Acad. year: 2023/2024

The subject deals in detail with drainage of urbanized units in connection with hydrological, hydraulic and other aspects (construction and technological problems of sewerage network construction, etc.) Materials of sewer networks. Reliability and management of sewer systems. Basic normative documents for designing, assessing and managing drainage of urbanized units. The preparation of the graduates of the subject is focused on work in the broader area (ie preparation of the student for the areas of project activity, construction, legislation, engineering activities) of water management.
