Sewer Systems Module for Higher Professional Education
The Sewer Systems Module for HPE offers higher education material in the field of urban drainage and sewerage. It gives an overview of planning, technology, design, and management of Western urban drainage in the context of The Netherlands. Both the Dutch and the English version were published under the responsibility of KIVI-NIRIA, in collaboration with Stichting RIONED and the Expert Group Urban Drainage of NLingenieurs.
