Rainwater infiltration as the basis for smart water management
Wetter winters, drier summers and more severe showers: according to climate experts, we will be more often experiencing weather extremes. Heavy rain is not always a problem: the excess rainwater usually sinks naturally into the soil in parks and forests. But that's not possible everywhere. In urban areas, it can happen that the type of soil may hardly allow water to permeate, or the water may fall on paved surfaces. In the case of an extreme shower, the amount of water at the disposal points becomes too great. The capacity of the sewer has not been calculated for this amount of water, with the result that the sewer becomes overloaded in the case of a storm peak , and water flows out onto the street.
