Stormwater management is one of the most essential questions related to climate change resilience in urban infrastructure. Reaching the goals of cities requires development of stormwater quality management practices and new technical solutions.
In S&C Stormwater Management project cities nominate areas where quality management test environments are built. Several natural and sustainable solutions are tested in cooperation with businesses.
Natural technologies such as recycled materials and biocarbon are the future of stormwater infrastructure internationally. Large scale us of them still requires testing in actual operational environment. The solutions have market and export potential in all urban areas that face changing weather conditions. This means that commercialized pioneer solutions are needed.
Business ecosystems supported by research organisations offer cities integrated solutions. Information generated in the process is shared on an open digital platform.
The preparation of Stormwater Management project began in the autumn 2017. The implementation phase will start in the beginning of 2018 and lasts for 18 months.
