Global water scarcity and the ever-increasing water usage in a diverse range of applications, pose an enormous pressure on the balance between water supply and demand.

Providing a sustainable solution to this problem, entails good knowledge and understanding of the water cycle process. That is, all steps and processes involved in water abstraction from natural sources, the subsequent treatment and uses and finally the return and infiltration of water into the soil.

This Advanced Water Cycle Management training course will concentrate in providing good understanding of the core principles and processes involved in water cycle management. This will be achieved through a systematic and detailed examination of the global water reserves, the water treatment regimes usually applied and the domestic and industrial uses of water through which water ends up and is recycled into nature. Special consideration will be given to the common problems encountered into each of these sectors and ways these can be dealt with, in the context of sustainability, regulatory compliance and health and safety.   

This Energy Training Centre training course will highlight:

  • Global water consumption trends during the past decades
  • The water life cycle concept
  • Briefing on the important water composition parameters
  • Water treatment technologies
  • Water-based applications

The objective of the training course is to provide participants with the experience to apply currently available knowledge and technologies in the water cycle; from abstraction to the return of the treated wastewater back to nature.

By the end of this Advanced Water Cycle Management training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the concept of water cycle
  • Learn the different stages from water abstraction to its final return back to nature
  • Develop the ability to solve problems relating to water quality
  • Design monitoring regimes for water distribution networks
  • Analyse risks and develop HSE action plans within the water cycle concept

This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes trainer-guided discussions between participants, involving their personal experience. In addition, case studies and group exercises will further assist towards comprehending the core principles of Advanced Water Cycle Management.

The water cycle concept is becoming of increasing importance in the contemporary water resources management sector. Your organisation will benefit from this course by:

  • Developing a water-conservation culture within the organization
  • Attaining regulatory and environmental compliance in relation to water management
  • Improving employee perception in relation to water recycling and reuse
  • Understanding the principles involved in the monitoring of water quality
  • Learning to manage the risks associated with water storage and distribution networks

By attending this training course, participants will gain the following:

  • Understand the Water Cycle concept
  • Learn the basics in relation to water composition and its implications in different applications
  • Develop their skills in water quality management
  • Enhance their knowledge in relation to water treatment
  • Realize the need for water reuse and recycling
  • Understand the environmental and regulatory implications within the water cycle loop

This Advanced Water Cycle Management training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit: 

  • Engineers and scientists from the water industry sector
  • Regulatory authorities along the water cycle chain
  • Laboratory personnel involved in water quality monitoring
  • Operators of water and wastewater treatment plants
