Supply and Sanitation Systems

At IHCantabria we have experience in the analysis and design of supply and sanitation systems is based on the work carried out since the 1990s for the design of large unitary sanitation systems in the north of Spain, financed by the Directorate General of Hydraulic Works.

This experience was subsequently applied to other territorial areas in our country and abroad.

At IHCantabria we have a methodology for designing storm tanks, subsequently applied to other territorial areas in our country and abroad.

At IHCantabria we have participated in several hydraulic dimensioning studies of rainwater evacuation systems in coastal areas. Within this field, it is worth mentioning the analysis of the influence of tides and waves on the drainage capacity of collectors; the work for the hydraulic characterisation of sanitation networks in situations of urban flooding or the study of discharges through canals.

In recent years there have been a series of regulatory modifications, including RD1290/2012, which establishes new requirements for sanitation operations. At the same time, the technological advances in the area of supply and sanitation have been very important, especially with regard to the instrumentation, control and real-time management of the systems. This is directly linked to the increase in measures to control pollution from overflows from sanitation systems such as “Overflows Surveillance Programme” and “Measures to Limit the Presence of Solids and Floaters in Overflows from Sanitation Systems”.
