Rainwater management

Creating rainwater management solutions that detain the water in existing structures or distribute it to areas where it creates the least damage

Increasing precipitation caused by climate change is putting great pressure on cities’ sewerage systems. A way to increase capacity of the sewerage systems can be to focus on rainwater management solutions that detain the water in existing structures or distribute it to areas where it creates the least damage. In Denmark, we are increasingly using hydraulic models in the planning phase and implementing solutions for local rainwater retention, including subsurface infiltration beds, green roofs and permeable paving. This makes it possible to alleviate the pressure on the traditional sewerage system and bring down the risk of combined sewer overflows. Other solutions include the use of separate sewers for rain and sewage water and treating rainwater locally via roadside infiltration beds and sand traps, .
