Getting Acquainted with Sewer Design

Overview

A two-day course to help candidates understand the fundamentals of sewerage systems, with emphasis on designing sewer collection systems in townships.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

The course helps graduates to apply for their theoretical training in practice. It is therefore recommended for:

  • Staff involved in the design of waste water conveyance networks
  • Staff employed in local government and involved in the planning, design, operations and maintenance of conveyance networks or about to become involved in the field
  • Candidate engineers, technologists and technicians
  • Experienced personnel looking for a refresher in sewer design

Benefits include:

  • Participation in an interactive workshop
  • Various practical activities to equip attendees to handle projects effectively when back in the workplace
  • A comprehensive document that will serve as a reference manual
  • CPD credits

Outcomes

By attending this course, delegates will learn about:

  • The composition of complete sewerage systems, including the conveyance network, treatment works and associated infrastructure
  • The selection of appropriate sanitation systems and the challenges associated with operations and maintenance
  • The design of sewerage networks, including the selection of pipes and fittings and the parameters to be considered when laying pipes
  • Policies, guidelines, health, hygiene and community requirements which must be considered when designing sewerage systems and associated community education
