Synopsis

Overall integration of the sewage collection, transport, treatment, and disposal systems is examined, followed by an overview of basic hydraulic principles, and the determination of the magnitude of sewage flows. Detailed design of hydraulic aspects of sewerage systems are covered, including reticulation systems sewer appurtenances such as manholes and inverted siphons, flow measurement systems, pump and pump system design, and sewage treatment plants. Practical issues related to design and maintenance practices such as fail-safe operation are covered.

Outcomes

The objectives of the unit are to:

  • learn hydraulic concepts underpinning integrated sewerage system design
  • learn social and inhdustrial factors that influence sewage flow rates
  • learn hydraulics of the individual elements of a sewerage system
  • learn practical issues related to design and maintenance for fail-safe operation of sewerage systems, and
  • develop students' ability to integrate the various components of a system into an efficiently designed and integrated system
