Water and Wastewater in Ancient Civilizations


The group is dedicated to reveal technological heritage in ancient civilizations worldwide in order to: (a) assist to make visible the remaining of hydro-technologies, (b) describe and evaluate them, (c) develop new sustainable water and wastewater systems based on old principles and today knowledge and infrastructure, and (d) create monuments of inspiration for the water future. The most of ancient hydro-technologies were decentralized, cost-effective, friendly to the environment, and highly sustainable.

The ancient wisdom must put into practice by creating awareness, undertaking policy research and lobbying to bring about change in policy as required so that water and wastewater management practices would further improved. It is time to think about managing the complete water cycle, to do so with impunity we look towards: probing the past, forging the future.
