Rainwater flooding

Flooding due to heavy rainfall or high surface water levels.

In urban area, space for green facilities is limited, therefore underground solutions are used. However, these are often not easily inspected or cleaned and require a lot of coverage.

Solution

The Waterbucket is a prefab concrete box that stores rainwater during peak precipitation. Therafter, the water can infiltrate into the ground, or be discharged. The Waterbucket is insensitive for contaminations due to the large cavity and use of robust infiltration mats. Also, this makes the system easily cleaned.
