Analysis of Sanitation Flows

A course of the Master of Science Program in Sanitation │ IHE Delft

A one-week course has been developed to enable the participants to distinguish between different sanitation flows through their characteristics and relate these to discharge requirements in different countries. The following themes are covered: the different characteristics of sanitation flows, their potential pollution and health impacts, the legislation relating to sanitation flows, and laboratory analysis of sanitation flows. The laboratory analysis covers basic parameters which are included in legislation and will include chemical, biological and physical parameters. This course is delivered through workshops, practicals and laboratory sessions, and is taught in our new faecal sludge laboratory, which is currently the only laboratory in Europe specialized in faecal sludge analysis.
