Core Attributes of Effectively Managed Wastewater Collection Systems

The efficient operation and management of collection system assets are critical to minimizing performance failures and potential effects. Efficient operation and maintenance of a collection system requires several essential elements regardless of a wastewater agency’s local performance requirements. Documenting programs, practices, and protocols helps produce successful and efficient performance of collection systems.

This document identifies 12 core attributes of an effectively managed wastewater collection system.

Constructed Wetlands Manual

This manual prepared by UN-HABITAT aims to provide a comprehensive description of the issues related to wastewater treatment through constructed wetlands. This manual has been prepared as a general guide to the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of constructed wetlands for the treatment of domestic wastewater as well as an introduction to the design of constructed wetland for
sludge drying.
