Chair of Water Quality Control
Water quality control is one of the exam subjects of the degree programme "Environmental Technology" and therefore focuses on the qualifications required by this programme. It comprises the scientific, analytic and engineering tasks concerning the safeguarding and remediation of water quality in the various compartments of the water cycle, especially of groundwater and of stagnant and flowing surface water bodies. This includes the recording and evaluation of anthropogenic influences as well as regulations for drinking and wastewater and for water protection. Part of the study programme is covered by other chairs.
The Chair of Water Quality Control was established within the Institute of Environmental Technology in 1978 in conjunction with the new degree programme "Environmental Technology" and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axt was appointed for it. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Jekel has been head of chair since 1988.
