Urban landscapes continue to expand in the midst of a changing climate. Growing populations, development and densification combined with more frequent severe weather events is overwhelming traditional drainage systems. In cities with mostly hard surfaces, the pollution content in runoff from traffic, building materials and air pollution is threatening water quality in open waters.
Here are some ways DHI can help city planners, water utilities, municipalities and urban developers revitalise infrastructure and receiving waters for greener cities.
To guide the selection of stormwater management options to reduce the impact of polluted stormwater runoff to water quality in receiving bodies, it’s necessary to characterise the catchment and untreated runoff quality both spatially and temporally. A spatial analysis and planning system can identify critical source areas for pollutant load reduction, prioritise mitigation based on contaminant influence on in-stream ecological health, and provide mitigation options through best practice stormwater management systems.
