The theoretical knowledge to understand the basics of water and wastewater technology is given under lectures and exersices. Water resources, treatment and distribution of potable water is handled in the course, as well as stormwater and wastewater infrastructure and treatment. Quality aspects of wastewater and the effects on the recipient is also handled,

The theoretical knowledge gathered during the course is put into practise on exercises. In one larger exercise the students will take a closer look at three possible water and wastewater solutions: centralized wastewater treatment, local handling of stormwater and decentralized wastewater treatment. The students will be working in groups where the gained knowledge will be used to discuss different solutions. A written technical report including evaluation of different solutions to solve wastewater handling in a given area, shall be the result of this group exercise.
