  • BA/MA: Microbial risk assessment of urban stormwater management practices

    Work contents:

    Stormwater basins are advantageous in the control of floods. However, they can pose a risk to the environment and human health due to biological and chemical contamination.

    Human exposure to pathogens in stormwater basins is accidental and occurs through recreational activities. In order to inform water authorities and to assist them in implementing risk control and mitigation measures, studies are needed on the health risks arising from exposure to urban water.

    The objectives of the work are as follows:
    1. literature research on bacterial and viral pathogens in storm water,
    2. calculation of the risk of disease due to recreational or accidental exposure,
    3. proposing operational strategies to minimise risk.

    Type of work:

    Bachelor or Master Thesis (German or English)

  • BA/MA: Application of quantitative microbial risk assessment models to improve safe contact with water in cities

    Work contents:

    Water elements in urban areas (cisterns, ponds, fountains, natural swimming pools, etc.) are increasingly perceived by citizens as a positive element, as they add aesthetic quality to the neighbourhood and provide recreational opportunities. However, they can also lead to increased health risks due to the possible presence of pathogens. Human exposure to pathogens in urban water occurs through recreational activities, domestic use, occupational exposure, consumption of plants irrigated with contaminated water or accidentally. In order to inform water authorities and assist them in implementing risk control and mitigation measures, studies are needed on the health risks arising from exposure to urban water.

    The objectives of the work are as follows:
    1. literature research on bacterial and viral pathogens in urban water
    2. calculation of the risk of illness due to recreational or accidental exposure
    3. proposing operational strategies to minimise risk.
