|Water treatment plants are energy intensive facilities with limited capacity. Reducing the amount of water that should be treated relieves the system during peak times and reduces the energy consumption overall. Several measures can be applied to reduce the amount of rainwater that reaches the sewers in a city, making a city more efficient and more climate proof.
|EFFICIENCY // CLIMATE MITIGATION
For local rainwater storage and to improve biodiversity
INTRODUCE SURFACE WATER
To prevent urban heat island and improve biodiversite
PREVENT SOIL SEALING
To prevent urban heat island and retain soil quality
Cope with peak weather through local rainwater storage/infiltration
