Hydroinformatics systems are systems that combine computational hydraulic modelling with information systems (including knowledge-based systems). They are gaining rapid acceptance in the areas of environmental planning, design and management. The present book focuses exclusively on sewage systems, starting with their planning and then going on to discuss their design, operation and rehabilitation.
The very experienced authors discuss business and information needs in the management of urban drainage, tools for collecting and archiving such data, and their use in modelling catchment hydrology, sewer systems hydraulics, wastewater quality, wastewater treatment plant operation, and receiving waters. The control and operation of sewer systems in real time is described, followed by a discussion of their maintenance and rehabilitation. Intelligent decision support systems for managing the urban drainage business process are presented.
Audience: Researchers into sewer design, municipal engineers, planners and managers interested in an innovative approach to all aspects of the planning, design and operation of sewer systems.

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings from the June 1996 conference in Harrachov, Czech Republic. Twenty-one contributions deal with hydroinformatics, a combination of environmental modelling and information technology, in connection with the planning, design, operation, and rehabilitation of urban drainage systems<-->the urban catchment, sewer systems, wastewater treatment plants, and the receiving waters. Topics include rainfall data in urban hydrology, application of GIS in urban drainage, modelling sewer hydraulics, modelling quality of urban runoff, wastewater treatment plants, sewerage rehabilitation, operation of sewer systems, safe hydroinformatics, and integrated urban drainage management.
