Module summary

The aim of the course is to give background to approach the basic issues in the field of extremely current topics related to the rational management of water resources in order to protect them from depletion and degradation. It will be focused on water quality problems, water distributions and relations with other environmental components as well as water supply and wastewater treatment

Module content
Lectures (30h):
Sustainable water resources management and protection

1. Basic definitions and concepts. The structure of water resources, quantitative and qualitative characteristics of water resources. Water resources as an ecological indicator of socio-economic development.
2. Priority issues in water management. Water shortages, floods, droughts, extreme hydrological phenomena, water balance, degradation of water ecosystems.
3. Water protection, indicators of water quality criteria and water quality standards; classification and evaluation of water status. Contamination of surface water and groundwater; the sources of contamination; the main groups of pollutants. The consequences of water pollution; self-purification processes in surface waters. Priority issues in the field of water protection and conservation. Technical, legal and organizational issues of water protection
3. Fundamentals of water supply and wastewater treatment
5. Sustainable water management: legal, technological and social aspects
