Issue

Rainwater flooding

Flooding due to heavy rainfall or high surface water levels.

The sewerage can be overloaded due to heavy rainfall. Delayed discharging of rainwater eases the stress on the sewerage and prevents nuisance.

Solution

Semipermeable pavement

By applying semipermeable pavement 90% of the rainwater is retained and infiltrates. The groundwater is replenished and no relatively clean water is discharged to the treatment plant.
