Addressing the challenges of urban water management

One issue common to small, medium-sized, and larger cities is the management of sewage and storm water within their urban environment. Never than before it is essential to enable cities and municipalities to be better prepared against climate change related impacts on their networks and treatment plants. Since drainage networks are rarely dimensioned to cope with runoffs from severe urban rainfall events the challenge is to identify and respond to vulnerable conditions. Data driven decisions help to minimise the impact of urban flooding and inundations while maintaining control over overflows into watersheds, rivers and natural basins.

The KISTERS solutions help to build a reliable data management backbone to comply to the growing number and complexity in state regulations and reporting.

Collecting, analysing, and applying data from a series of nearby information networks is necessary for raising better awareness, performing better planning, vigilantly monitoring and mitigating the vulnerability of clean and responsive urban water environments.
