Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) are increasingly gaining popularity due to their multifaceted benefits addressing various environmental and societal challenges for cities. The pursuit of achieving sustainable urban water management and enhancing resilience and well-being has expanded the range of NBS applications considered useful. Currently,...

This research is aimed at creating a generic design method for infiltration drywells on sandy soils by acquiring knowledge on the functioning of these wells. Infiltration drywells are vertical infiltration pipes that are installed above the groundwater table and through which stormwater is drained to the subsurface. Infiltration drywells can...

In a context of neglect for natural resources, formerly guiding cores of cultural development and revealed in a constitution of public spaces - due to the urban and economic development in the city of Iraklion, Crete, this project aims at exploring, understanding and revealing the potentials of Yofyros river as an actor to facilitate, enhance,...

van Lienden, Kirsten (author)
Climate change, population growth and urbanisation contribute to an increasing demand for freshwater resources. In order to face this challenge, stormwater harvesting for aquifer storage and recovery has gained interest over the past decades. However, pollutants from various surfaces are transported with the runoff, posing a threat for receiving...

de Lange, Robbert (author)
Urban climate adaptation is generally attained --- in a hydrological perspective -- by implementing stormwater management techniques, such as grey, blue and green adaptation measures. Implementing such multi-functional adaptation measures touches on the interests of many stakeholders who need to work together to find resilient and suiting...

This introductory chapter indicates why well-defined, high-standard, and reliable monitoring is a key aspect in the necessary evolution of urban drainage and stormwater management and why it should become routine practice. It provides a framework, guidelines, and recommendations to define monitoring objectives and means. It also presents the...

Due to climate change, cities are expected to become subject to increasingly intense heat waves and precipitation. This calls for them to become more resilient towards such fluctuations. Green infrastructure is increasingly acknowledged as a means to enhance climate resilience, but cities – especially city centres – often lack the necessary...

Versteeg, Pim (author)
Pressure on fresh water resources has led to water scarcity and increasing demand for alternative water resources, such as rainwater. Nevertheless, heavy metal contamination is a limiting factor for re-use of urban stormwater. This research focusses on the adsorption of heavy metal contaminants by biofiltration systems, specifically on the...

Cape Town is a city with over four million people and a growing population. Due to three consecutive dry summers as a result of climate change, a growing population and an increased per capita water demand, the city’s main water supply was nearly depleted. Cape Town depends for 98% on surface water stored in dammed reservoirs, which is...

Nederlof, Ilse (author)
In the face of climate change, urban stormwater management practices are subject to an uncertain context. More frequent and extreme rainfall events are expected in many urban areas. The extent how climate change will affect weather patterns is however uncertain. This challenges contemporary stormwater management practices. A post-disaster...

Leung, Cherk Ga (author)
As architects, by constructing the conditions for people to collectively perform alternative ways of gathering, maybe we can agitate the impermanent boundaries around what is normal and accepted. My intervention along El Parkway is a paved ground that makes it possible for people to collectively experience the public realms anew through the...

ZHANG, Wenxing (author)
The undertaken thesis work conducts a research study based on the study area — Laakhaven, The Hague, to develop an implementation example of the Adaptation Pathway approach, in order to support long-term adaptive stormwater management planning on urban adaptation measures to mitigate pluvial flooding under the climatic and socio-economic...

In a warming world, urban environmental stresses are exacerbated by population-increase-induced development of grey infrastructure that usually leaves minimal scope for blue (and green) elements and processes, potentially resulting in mismanagement of stormwater and flooding issues. This paper explores how urban growth planning in the...

Cities exhibit unique and ever-changing spatial layouts formed by nested natural and socio-economic systems, sub-systems and components resulting from exchange, interaction, and interdependency processes. In this context, managing surface water in urban areas requires new approaches that integrate the knowledge about territorial patterns and...
