Resilience measure: Raised kerb

definition

Kerb or curb is the edge of the pavement at the side of the road. Water can be channeled along streets with raised kerbs and also to limit contact with buildings. For instance, this could reduce the probability for flood water to enter buildings. This way more water can be stored in the street profile without flooding the buildings (Wikipedia, Curb, accessed on Sept. 2016 & Design manua for roads and bridges, 2006).
