Part of: Urban Hydrology


The importance of urban water problems have been increasingly realized in the 70's also in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). State authorities, communities, universities, planners and consultants in an interactive manner prepared the grounds for the progress achieved since 1979. Much of the directive work has been carried out by a number of scientific and technical associations and organizations. In general they are dealing with special fields of urban hydrology, such as Abwassertechnische Vereinigung (ATV), member of the IAWPRC, e. g. urban drainage systems and waste water treatment, Deutscher Verband des Gas- und Wasserfaches (DVGW), member of the IWSA, e. g. urban water supply, and Deutscher Verband fuer Wasserwirtschaft und Kulturbau (DVWK), member of the IUGG, e. g. water resources managment.
