Summer Abroad Mexico, "Building Sustainable Water Treatment Systems" (Info Session)

UC Davis Summer Abroad (Building Sustainable Water Treatment Systems in Mexico)

Event Date



Program Overview

In 2015, the nations of the world adopted a set of global goals to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. In Mexico, although substantial developments have been made in water and wastewater treatment, significant progress is still needed in providing access to all communities, as well as ensuring the resilient operations of these systems. This class will focus on the design of a holistic system for the collection, treatment and use of rainwater, and the collection, treatment and reuse of municipal wastewater in a community in Mexico that is historically under-resourced. The system will be designed to meet the needs of the population served, comply with current regulations and legislation, and reflect the principles of sustainability, Net Zero Water, Water Neutral, and conjunctive use.
