Water and waste management

The management of waste water is one of the most pressing development issues of our time. If not managed properly, it can be one of the main hindrances to urban development. The overflowing of wastewater leads to lowering living standards and increasing the number illnesses among the population, as well as increasing the burden on the public sector to deal with these consequences. The management of waste water could involve recycling waste water, or environmentally friendly disposal. A corollary to waste water management is sewer system management, a field which encompasses domestic sewage treatment, industrial runoff and other factors. The wastes from toilets, baths, kitchens and other parts of the household are usually pumped into a leech field, or pumped into the central sewage system. Large scale waste from industrial activities, is especially dangerous, with chemical pollutants and other harmful substances in the sewage. In many regions industrial waste water is regulated by the public sector, requiring a special license to operate.
