Course Description & Objectives: 

The course provides theoretical background and practical expertise in the field of low-cost decentralised water supply and sanitation alternatives specifically suitable for the small towns, peri-urban areas and urban slums, small island communities, tourist resorts etc. The course begins with a general introduction to water supply and sanitation situations in rural areas, small towns and rural growth centres as well as peri-urban and urban slums. It then presents the water supply systems including all their components, from source selection, abstraction, through treatment and supply/delivery to consumers.   

Learning Outcomes: 

On completing the course the students should be able to:

  • Describe different technologies/methods for small-scale water abstraction, water treatment and sustainable sanitation technologies including nutrient reuse in agriculture.
  • To prepare a basic engineering or concept design for the above mentioned technologies under the given conditions.
  • To facilitate planning, financing, implementation and operation and maintenance of decentralised water supply and sanitation infrastructures based on stakeholder participation and community management.
