RENEXPO® Water Management: Water management and flood protection
RENEXPO® Water Management professional conference in the field of water management in Belgrade
Franz Georg Unger from the Office of the City of Vienna for water management and flood protection, that the most important thing the capital of Austria gained is the experience gained by timely engagement in flood defences .
He underlined that 'More than two centuries we are dealing with flood prevention in Vienna, in particular along the Danube river and we have taken appropriate preventive measures. We have developed a model for predicting floods, build dams and surfaces for the water withdrawal, in order to adequately defend the city against possible decennial flood '. Unger said it is very important to know when floods may follow and to what extent. So in Serbia should be possible to predict rainfall, that is the volume of the rainfall, and where it can cause flooding.
Further pole of the flood protection is the cooperation of all institutions, underlined by the Austrian expert.
