The modelling of urban water quality (i.e. wastewater, stormwater) is a growing issue in water management. New regulations stress the importance of estimating the loads and the fate of micro-pollutants (MPs) in the urban water cycle. The models available to simulate the transport and removal of “traditional” pollutants such as overall organic pollution, nutrients and suspended solids in the different components of the urban water system (i.e. sewer network, stormwater treatment units, wastewater treatment plant, receiving waters) were extended with processes affecting the fate of MPs (i.e. physical, chemical and biological) depending on the compound's inherent properties. This paper describes the modelling approach and some possible applications of these unit process models including their combination to simulate urban water systems by means of three examples, developed within the EU project SCOREPP.
