It is vitally important to investing efforts in the proper maintenance and operation of these urban drainage networksThe design of these systems will make them indispensable elements to optimally regulate pollution and even the use of water resources.

The participants of Operation and Maintenance of Urban Drainage Networks will be able to specific knowledge of the operation of a drainage network in relation to its maintenance, cleaning and operabilityin both dry and rainy seasons.

The content of the program is especially indicated for professionals who are interested in knowing the criteria, techniques and instrumentation for the correct cleaning of the network, rehabilitation methods, the study of the pathologies that lead to its aging, the training required for the correct inspection, the advanced organization of the service and the remote control and centralized operation systems.

During episodes of high rainfall, stormwater in cities is characterized by the accumulation of high amounts of pollutants that are incorporated in its path, such as elements of the urban pollutionof human activity or contamination originating from sewer leaks.

Due to the efficiency challenges in water management for citiesis of vital importance investing efforts for the proper maintenance and operation of these urban drainage networksThe design of these systems will make them indispensable elements to optimally regulate pollution and even the use of water resources.
