Water Circulation Concept Berlin-Brandenburg
(Wasserkreislaufkonzeption Berlin-Brandenburg (Machbarkeitsstudie))
Short Description: Objective of the feasibility study is to develop a concept for the recirculation of the Berlin sewage treatment plant effluents through appropriate lowlands. In current scientific literature, the around Berlin distributed large-scale lowlands are discussed as sink-effective ecosystems for nutrients and pollutants to produce largely purged wastewater. The development of a concept for a lasting sustainable land use of lowland areas with clear water discharge under consideration of ecosystem relationships and the socio-economic environment shall show realizable possibilities with concrete practical relevance to the solution of the current waste water problems and future drinking water supply of Berlin.
