Helping to create flood-safe cities
Using our software and knowledge, entire cities can efficiently be screened, identifying the most problematic areas with regards to pluvial flood risk.

Pluvial flooding refers to flooding events that are caused by extreme rainfall. Such floods occur when the ground cannot absorb rainwater effectively or urban drainage systems are overwhelmed by excessive water flow. They’re an increasing problem for cities around the globe, causing huge economical losses and in extreme cases, risks to human life.
Mapping the effects of extreme rain events can be time-consuming and thereby costly, if models of storm water systems for entire cities are to be established. Using our modelling software, large geographic areas can be mapped with limited time and effort. Flood map results form the basis for establishing a strategy to manage surface runoff within existing and planned developments.
