Project Details

Description

The project addresses the societal challenges of urban stormwater management. The research targets are to generate knowhow to provide clean technologies, in the form of engineered materials and designs that can enhance stormwater management by retaining runoff and improving water quality through pollutant sorption or filtering in the soil. The targets compliment Finnish strategies for green urban living, by promoting vegetation health and improved water quality. The project also provides society with tools for decision making regarding regional planning and specifications, based on models and smart city monitoring of performance for the new infrastructural solutions.
