ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND ECONOMICAL INFLUENCES ON APPLYING WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANTS IN KHARTOUM CITIES (AL RIYADH CITY - CASE STUDY)

Abdel Rahim M. El Hassan, Mojahid Eddom

Abstract


Environmental health engineering is an important weapon in the fight against disease. Many of the dramatic improvements in public health in the developing countries over the last century or so are attributable to public health
engineers, at least as much as to doctors. But these improvements have yet to reach the vast majority of the world’s poor, who still endure the high rate of death, disease and disability which have always been associated with poverty.
The main aim of this paper is to develop an understanding of the main requirements for the effective development of water treatment systems in Khartoum cities.
To achieve this aim, the methodologies used are field study in Riyadh city (as a case study) regarding the population, water consumption rate, soil topography.
The results of these field studies showed that application of waste water treatment plants will improve the environmental health and human life style.
