In this research a considerable amount of scientific evidence had been collected which leads to the conclusion that the urban wastewater components should be designed as one integrated system, if the protection of the receiving waters is to be achieved cost-effectively. Even more, there is a need to optimize the design and operation of the...

Urban pollution managers are being forced to optimize the control of Urban Wastewater Systems (UWwS) in order to deal with more pressure and new criteria for performance. Furthermore, one of the main causes of the deficient control of the UWwSs is the lack of data in each subsystem and the lack of coordination within institutions to share the...

The pressure on the Urban Wastewater Systems (UWwS) increases as urbanization continues relentlessly and climate change appears to lead to more extreme rainfall events. These pressures have a negative effect on the efficiency of UWwS to reduce the urban pollution reaching water-receiving systems. One of the main causes of the problem is that the...
