Urban Storm - Water Management

Services throughout the project life cycle

More than half the world population now lives in cities, and as the built-up areas grow, storm water problems tend to increase. Climate change, causing extreme rainfall events, aggravates the problem.

In NIRAS we apply an integrated and innovative approach to storm water management, involving a landscaped based adaptation where storm water is retained in green areas, temporary lakes, football fields or other places where it does no or limited harm to people and infrastructure and from where it may infiltrate into the soil or be released slowly to streams and sewers.

We coordinate and support cross-sectorial planning and capacity building, involving all relevant stakeholders in the processes in developing new urban areas. We work with existing property owners to build in flood resilience to existing properties using our in-house flood modelling capabilities and our expert flood knowledge.
