Module Learning Outcomes Assessed:

  1. Analyse the challenges in sustainable management of water supply and demand across regional, national and international boundaries
  2. Critically assess the role of policy and legislation in sustainable water management.
  3. Critically assess techniques of sustainable water treatment, management and disposal
  4. Assess the social and environmental impacts of large scale water consumption.
  5. Evaluate sources of aquatic pollution and propose appropriate management techniques.
 

Task and Mark distribution:

Examine the number and amount of releases of sewage by UK water utilities. Why do these companies release sewage from time to time?  What pollution problems arise from the releases? Contrast  how Severn Trent Water and Southern Water handle the sewage problems, especially since Severn Trent has no sea access.

How do these releases affect the UKs attempt to meet the Bathing Water Directive? European neighbours such as Germany and France have a number of rivers which meet the Bathing Water Directive. How do they achieve this: that is to say – what technology or techniques can be employed to solve the problem?

Prepare a report of up to 2500 words.  

If you get less than 40% in this assignment (CW2)  you will need to resit in the next semester. 

For the re-assessment of 7010EXQ (CW2), you should improve your initial attempt to a satisfactory level using the feedback provided (on CU Aula). Your resit attempt should address all feedback comments which may include conducting further analysis, incorporating additional literature, strengthening your academic argument and improving the format and/or structure of your work.

 

 

Notes:

  1. You are expected to use the APA style (7th Edition) referencing format. For support and advice on how to use the referencing format, students can contact Centre for Academic Writing (CAW). You can also refer to the following link https://libguides.coventry.ac.uk/apa
  2. Please notify your registry course support team and module leader for disability support.
  3. Any student requiring an extension or deferral should follow the university process as outlined here.
  4. The University cannot take responsibility for any coursework lost or corrupted on disks, laptops or personal computer. Students should therefore regularly back-up any work and are advised to save it on the University system.
  5. If there are technical or performance issues that prevent students submitting coursework through the online coursework submission system on the day of a coursework deadline, an appropriate extension to the coursework submission deadline will be agreed. This extension will normally be 24 hours or the next working day if the deadline falls on a Friday or over the weekend period. This will be communicated via email and Aula.
  6. Assignments that are more than 10% over the word limit will result in a deduction of 10% of the mark i.e. a mark of 60% will lead to a reduction of 6% to 54%. The word limit includes quotations, but excludes the bibliography, reference list and tables.
  7. You are encouraged to check the originality of your work by using the draft Turnitin links..
  8. Collusion between students (where sections of your work are similar to the work submitted by other students in this or previous module cohorts) is taken extremely seriously and will be reported to the academic conduct panel. This applies to both courseworks and exam answers.
  9. A marked difference between your writing style, knowledge and skill level demonstrated in class discussion, any test conditions and that demonstrated in a coursework assignment may result in you having to undertake a Viva Voce in order to prove the coursework assignment is entirely your own work.
  10. If you make use of the services of a proof reader in your work you must keep your original version and make it available as a demonstration of your written efforts.
  11. You must not submit work for assessment that you have already submitted (partially or in full), either for your current course or for another qualification of this university, unless this is specifically provided for in your assignment brief or specific course or module information. Where earlier work by you is citable, ie. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it clearly. Identical pieces of work submitted concurrently will also be considered to be self-plagiarism.
