The report tackles Galveston's flooding challenges, which are currently in development with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) ring barrier. However, the current design, predominantly addressing coastal flooding, falls short in dealing with pluvial flooding, relying heavily on pumps. This top-down approach neglects environmental and...

Changes in the climate have forced municipalities to rethink urban development and become more climate-resilient. One way they can achieve this is by implementing Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, or SUDS. Permeable pavements are a type of SUDS designed to let rainwater infiltrate, thereby reducing runoff and lowering peak flows. They can be...

Globally, there is an ongoing trend to improve the live-ability of cities. Furthermore, the importance of sufficient urban response systems for storm water is growing due to climate change and urbanization. Sustainable Urban Drainage Solutions (SUDSs) are seen as a key tool to tackle multiple urban challenges. This is as their design is multi...

A monitoring case study of the hydrologic performance of the Aquaflow infiltrating road foundation. The results show a good performance in peak delay of 4 - 8 hours, volume retention of 50% to 97% and peak reduction of 15% to 76% for varying rainfall events and initial soil conditions. The results are promising for future implementation to...

There is an urgent need for urban environments to be more flood resilient. The public can participate in addressing this by adopting household sustainable drainage solutions (SuDS). However, their lack of knowledge and awareness is a barrier. This paper presents an educational serious game to overcome this barrier and explores whether it can...

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are useful tools to manage rainwater and reduce pollutants in urban environments. Their use, as sustainable solutions, can mitigate the effects of climate change and urbanization. The existence of different definitions of performance is one reason for delaying more implementation of SUDS. Deciding on the...

Vegetated permeable pavement systems (VPPS) contribute to a more climate-resilient application of urban water management. However, a complete hydrologic evaluation of vegetated permeable pavement systems has not been found in existing literature. This research presents an evaluation of the hydrologic performance of VPPS under Dutch climatic...

The research presented in this document presents a comparative analysis of the mainstreaming process of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) in mid-sized and large municipalities in the Netherlands. As a result of the extreme weather conditions presented by the STOWA, deteriorating sewers, and the increase of paved areas in urban...

Despite being widely implemented, sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) do not always function flawlessly. While SUDS have been tested extensively and seem to perform well on a laboratory or pilot scale, practitioners’ experience is different: failures in SUDS occur regularly in practice, resulting in malfunctioning systems, water...

Goess-Enzenberg, Isabelle (author)
Due to the predicted impacts of climate change on the frequency of storm events, water managers are challenged to improve and adapt the current urban infrastructure. Cities need to be able to deal with the adverse effects due to more frequent and heavier rainfall. This implies the need for sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) that can deal...

In 2018 Cape Town faced the threat of becoming the first city in modern age to run out of drinking water and reach Day Zero, the day when due to a 3-year long drought the city’s taps are switched off and residents are compelled to fetch their daily 25 liters of water from communal taps. This time the city successfully managed to avoid the...

The results obtained in this study are encouraging and important for the implementation of permeable pavement and swales in The Netherlands, since the performance of SUDS in delta areas and in areas in the world with comparable hydraulic circumstances has been viewed with skepticism. The research undertaken on Dutch SUDS field installations has...

Permeable pavements are a type of sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) technique that are used around the world to infiltrate and treat urban stormwater runoff and to minimize runoff volumes. Urban stormwater runoff contains significant concentrations of suspended sediments that can cause clogging and reduce the infiltration capacity and...

Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (VRET) is an effective method to treat anxiety disorders and comes with many advantages over exposure in vivo, the latter being exposure in real-life. VRET is done by exposing patients gradually with their fear by using immersive virtual environments (VEs). Most attention in VRET research goes to visuals and less...
