Stormwater management means the systematic discharge of the effluent stormwater regarding ecological and economical issues, among others, in order to minimise flood drainage and to protect water bodies from polluted storm or combined wastewater. Generally stromwater effluent is managed centrally in combined or separate systems, but also decentrally with the help of semi-natural stormwater concepts. To ensure that stormwater management is sustainable, integral concepts are needed, which include decentralised concepts in the catchment areas in combined and separate systems, in addition to the individual discharge buildings or plants. Present capacities can, for example, be used economically via realtime control.
To help operators manage stormwater intelligently and with specific targets, FiW offers the following services:
- Analysis of existing concepts dealing with stormwater management,
- Preparing integrated concepts to manage stormwater and integrate them into regional planning measures,
- Integrating future developments of stormwater events (baseline scenarios),
- Dimensioning centralised and decentralised stormwater treatment plants, and
- Analysing and developing concepts to control drainage.
