Description of Activity

IWA Webinar: Modelling Wastewater Treatment Resilience for Improved Decision Making and Resource Recovery

The volume and composition of wastewaters are changing due to climate change and modified human behaviour. These changes generate new and novel stressors that rapidly emerge as concentrated ‘stress’ in existing wastewater infrastructure and assets. For example, wastewaters become concentrated during extended dry periods and more dilute during more frequent periods of high-intensity rainfall. These changes present a considerable challenge for infrastructure, assets and the recovery of resources from wastewaters. This webinar discusses the challenge of communicating 'stressors' and 'process stresses' with operational staff and decision-makers. It also considers how resources can be recovered and the complexities of generating robust process streams.
