Healthy urban water systems are fundamental for our lives. We need them to secure food and drinking water production, clean air, social and economic welfare, even for our health and happiness. But because of climate change and rapid population growth, cities are challenged to keep the water cycle in balance.
• Collection of stormwater run-off from paved surfaces, such as roofs, streets and parking. • Retention measures at ground level to temporary retain the collected stormwater. • Treatment of the collected stormwater by means of bio-filtration techniques within Bluebloqs Biofilter. • Storage of the purified water in the deeper sand layers via infiltration wells. • Reuse of the infiltrated water for different applications, such as irrigation of sport fields and urban green, industrial processes or reducing heat stress
This circular water system has the potential to generate water resources within the urban fabric, ensuring you green parks, great sporting pitches every season, and good quality water for industrial use
