Climate change scenarios predict more frequent and larger extremes in rainfall. Already, cities in the EU face damage from pluvial flooding. Damages will increase due to climate change and continuing urbanisation. Urban pluvial flooding is a major problem that urgently requires effective, sustainable and cost-effective solutions.

EU wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) produce 30 000 tons (dry matter) of sludge daily. This sludge is deposited, incinerated or used as fertiliser. Sludge disposal has large negative environmental impacts and is costly. As a result of the increasing number of households with sewerage connection, the problem is increasing rapidly. The main cha

Surface water quality has been deteriorating in recent decades, due to the emission of chemical compounds (e.g. heavy metals, pesticides, nutrients and fertilisers), physical alterations (e.g. infrastructure, dams and fixed water levels) and the presence of harmful organisms such as cyanobacteria. Due to climate change, the latter is becoming a

Eutrophication is a major issue throughout the European Union. It is caused by high loads of nutrients, mainly phosphate and nitrogen, being discharged to water. It results in reductions of biodiversity, and a decline in the ecological quality of surface waters. Furthermore, it can lead to blooms of toxic algae.
Over the years, the phosphate l

More than two thirds of European cities are regularly confronted with climate change induced disasters. Early Warning Systems (EWS) play a crucial role in mitigating the effects of such disasters by detecting conditions which forecast the onset of a catastrophe and to compute its impact. EWSs provide alarming, decision support and information services to governments, companies and the general publ

Approximately 20% of the surface water in the EU is severely threatened by pollution from nitrates and phosphates caused mainly by agricultural activities. These cause redundant algae growth, harming fish and sometimes humans. One solution developed to clean polluted surface water is the vertical flow reed bed.
The vertical flow reed bed co

Clear and quick transfer of information is a key factor in modern flood prevention. The eight strong NOAH partnership, led by STOWA, a Dutch organisation, develops a new transnational approach to manage these high water situations around two key objectives. Firstly the partnership will seek to develop and implement a new IT system called FLIWAS which makes innovative use of GIS support systems. Th
