Channeling rainwater on the road

  • Water: 1
  • Construction costs: 1
  • Maintenance/management: 1


When restructuring or newly constructing districts, roads can be graded so that rainwater is directed to areas where it can be safely captured or where the damage will be limited.

On the other hand, streets can also be designed in such a way that they buffer vulnerable low-lying areas.
