The Laboratory of Sanitary Engineering (LES) is integrated in the Hydraulics, Water Resources and Environment Division of the Department of Civil Engineering of FEUP. Its main activities include researching and developing water and wastewater treatment technologies and supporting the Integrated Masters and postgraduate courses. External water and effluent analysis services bring in the necessary funds to ensure the maintenance of the laboratory.

The main objective of the LES is the experimental study of urban and industrial wastewater treatment, the characterization of industrial effluents and river water, and the elaboration of essays on water and wastewater treatment. Its activities have been expanded to support doctoral dissertations, provide services in effluent and sludge analysis, formulate practical information-based strategies of operation and control of wastewater treatment plants and to participate in large scale projects regarding the development of technical tools to support water quality management in river basins.
