Climate adaptation and monster rain
The climate change puts pressure on the existing sewer systems which results in floods. Because of the larger quantities of rain and more frequent rainfall – referred to as “monster rain” in the press – there is a need for finding alternative solutions to managing rainwater instead of leading it directly down the sewer. Rainwater should instead be seen as a resource that is delayed, stored, seeped down, and evaporated. On the way, the rainwater can be used for e.g. recreational purposes, for enhancing biodiversity, for social purposes, or for heating/cooling. At the Pipe Centre we are engaged in promoting and developing existing solutions to managing rainwater as a resource.
