Laboratory of Ecological Risks in Urban Drainage (CTU): Partner 39

Laboratory of Ecological Risks in Urban DrainageThe Laboratory of Ecological Risks in Urban Drainage (LERMO) of the Czech Technical University in Prague, represented by Prof. J. Pollert, was founded at the beginning of 1998 under the scheme of the project “Improvement of science work at Czech universities” granted by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport for years 1998-2000 and in 2001 LERMO was integrated into the official scheme of CTU as a department. Since 2001 Laboratory is involved in 5.RTD Programme EU in project APUSS (Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems) and in the project of the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport “Integrated Water Management and Floods Prevention under Sustainable Development” and as well as in projects Czech Grant Agency (Expert System for Assessment Urban Drainage Reliability, Remobilization of Heavy Metals and Changes in their Distribution Coefficients as Part of Ecological Risk Assessment in Urban Watershed of Small Streams).

The research team of department consists 5 researchers, 9 PhD students and 4 technicians. The research topics deal with impact on physical, chemical and biological components of urban drainage systems; sediment as transport medium for pollution and transport and transportation processes in sewers. The research also deals with modeling water quality and quantity in the urban drainage systems and receiving waters, and ecology of urban areas streams in micro and macro scale. LERMO is equipped with physical, chemical and biological laboratory. The team has a lot of experience with assessing the ecological risk in aquatic ecosystems and the quality assessment. LERMO is also equipped with fluid mechanics and rheometrics laboratory and has a large knowledge of the physical modeling of the fluid and suspension properties and behaviour.
