Waste water management

March 25, 2015
10:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Congress Forum / Hall 2.2

Germany has achieved very high standards in wastewater management thanks to continuous adaptation to new demands. The sector continues to focus on changing legislation, implementing new research results, and technical developments.

Demographic trends raise infrastructural questions, including the best way to design, construct or renovate facilities. The forum offers the opportunity to discuss semi-centralized solutions, such as successful improvements in chemical water quality. Quaternary sewage treatment, which in some places serves as a model for the removal of trace elements, is still under scrutiny. An example from Switzerland illustrates this high-profile issue.

The wastewater management sector requires input about how to handle heavy rainfall, as the aftermath of storms at wastewater treatment plants and on our waters demonstrates. Last but not least, aging sewer systems create new challenges for cities and municipalities.

Drinking water supply

March 25, 2015
02:00 PM - 04:30 PM

Congress Forum / Hall 2.2

It goes without saying that Germany has a safe supply of drinking water. To ensure that it stays this way, experts from all water-related disciplines need to actively address new challenges.

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Water Safety Plan has triggered controversial discussions. Many people question the advantages of the WHO guidelines for better drinking water in rural areas. The Drinking Water Supply Forum focuses on sharing practical experiences and addresses questions such as “Are legal regulations at the national level sufficient?” and “Do the EU measures aim to improve the quality of drinking water?”. Nutrients in groundwater are one of the biggest challenges when it comes to the quality of untreated water for the drinking water supply. In order to optimize the current approach, the Drinking Water Supply Forum is focusing the discussion on the nitrates action program. Conclusions for all of Germany are drawn based on Schleswig-Holstein as an example.

Maintenance and modernization of the aging water supply infrastructure is also on the agenda.

Science meets practice

March 26, 2015
10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

Congress Forum / Hall 2.2

Water research in Germany, especially in Berlin, is a driving force for improvements in water protection and the water supply. Water research raises important questions and is closely linked to practice. In spite of the high standards and achievements in water conservation, new, previously unknown problems emerge, ranging from micro-pollutants, new hygiene requirements as a result of warmer water and improving energy efficiency in the water industry, to new demands on rainwater management caused by more frequent heavy rainfall.

Many of these issues demand sufficient knowledge of the relationship between cause and effect. This is the only way to develop reasonable, enforceable standards along with sustainable, environmentally sound solutions without undesirable side effects.

New issues and challenges in water protection require updated or new technologies. Scientists, engineers and practitioners need to cooperate closely throughout the development process. Berlin has a high concentration of expertise in the area of water research, including the Wasser Berlin Center of Excellence and the Technische Universität Berlin. This powerful network for research and application plays a leading role in Germany and works closely with the Berliner Wasserbetriebe. The “Science Meets Practice” forum provides insight into this network and its achievements.

Current developments in Europe and their impact on practice

March 26, 2015
02:00 PM - 04:30 PM

Congress Forum / Hall 2.2

The European Union has a significant influence on water policy and legislation. Where will these developments lead? What will happen to the national standards and principles that have been developed and tested over decades? Will they be weakened, possibly at the expense of our high standards? Experts must look more closely at these points from a critical perspective if the new approaches in Europe are to be successful.

Recently, there have been discussions about “true” water quality. Suppliers utilize this information and keep the public informed. They also question Europe‘s role in the legislative process in the water industry.

The EU Commission’s definition of water services, and whether the narrow interpretation of the Federal Republic of Germany will be enforced, are determined during the infringement proceedings to implement the EU Water Framework Directive. Possible consequences of the European Court‘s decision for the German water industry are also identified.

The water industry is being affected by demographic change and faces a shortage of junior employees in the academic and practical sectors. Increased competition for skilled workers in the labor market means that the water industry needs to take the initiative. Companies cannot solve this problem alone – universities should reconsider their engineering programs, and associations need to develop concepts that make the water industry an attractive workplace for young employees. Professionals need to work together and figure out to what extent, and by what means, the European requirements can be implemented at a national level.
