Integrated Municipal Sanitation Systems

June 22, 2010
Integrated Municipal Sanitation Systems Professor Garrick Louis of the University of Virginia and two of his students receive a briefing on the flow monitoring process at a water treatment plant on the southern Caribbean island of Tobago. Louis applies a systems engineering approach to management of integrated municipal sanitation systems (including drinking water, wastewater and sewage treatment, and solid waste disposal) to build local capacity to sustain safe, reliable, affordable services to underserved communities worldwide. His research features development of methods for capacity assessment, performance evaluation and strategic resource allocation. This research was supported by grant BES 99-84318, awarded by the National Science Foundation Division of Bioengineering and Environmental Systems to Garrick E. Louis, University of Virginia.
