Water Sanitation Networks

Water Sanitation Networks

Éste es un campo de investigación y transferencia prioritario del Instituto desde hace varios años. Dentro del mismo cabe destacar los trabajos de planificación en abastecimiento y de diseño de sistemas de saneamiento urbanos basados en el estudio de los efectos de los vertidos sobre los medios acuáticos. Ejemplos de estos últimos son el dimensionamiento de colectores, tanques de tormenta y sistemas de vertido bajo criterios de protección de las aguas continentales, playas, zonas de producción de moluscos o ecosistemas acuáticos de especial relevancia, desarrollados a nivel nacional.

IH Cantabria has been putting much effort in  researching and transfering knowledge in this field of work for many years. One example is the studies carried out on water supply and sanitation networks and the effects of their discharges on the aquatic environments. Examples of these studies are the design and dimensioning of collectors, storm tanks and disposal systems taking into consideration the conservation of the river, coastal or marine systems among others. 

Also along these lines we can find the projects carried out to study hydraulic network dimesioning and urban flooding measures.
