As one of the direct effects of global warming, seasonal precipitation has become extremely fluctuating. Prolonged periods of water scarcity and drought have become common, as well as the rainfall events when many times the amount of usual precipitation can fall in just a few days.

Extreme amounts of water put an increased stress on both our natural and built environment.

In the absence of adequate protection, lightning floods are a direct threat, while a lack of rainfall can lead to supply problems in many places. Therefore, it is extremely important to plan territorial and municipal water management and plant management with a high degree of competence, expertise and foresight.

Complex water management systems are an effective solution for dealing with water damage and drought damage in the areas.

The drainage of surplus water must be planned in the knowledge of the water demand of the areas, accordingly it must be possible to retain the water in the area and to designate the necessary storage places and storm reservoirs in the case of both indoor and outdoor water management.

In the case of complex water management, water controlling tasks must be performed, which can be ensured by the construction of double-acting water controlling structures. Where the conditions required for the above technical solutions are not given (ownership, land use, existing development), it must first be possible to drain water without damage. In the case of large-scale and complex water management, modern plant management technologies (remote operation, monitoring, automatic control) must be used in order to properly operate the facilities and to adapt them to the changing weather conditions and territorial water needs in time.

In order to establish the above technical solutions, we are at the disposal of our partners in performing the following design tasks:

  • hydrological examination of the area, hydrological modeling, exploration of water needs, drainage, geodetic and soil physical conditions;
  • consultations with owners, land users, public utility managers;
  • elaboration of water management concept, preparatory design, feasibility studies;
  • carrying out detailed design work for the selected concept, preparation of authorization and construction plans, plant management plans, implementation plans;
  • professional assistance, expert advice during the licensing procedure.
