Resilience measure: Retention of rainwater in the vicinity of a roundabout

definition

In case of an extreme event the surface runoff is conveyed by the streets to a roundabout, where it is temporarily stored and infiltrated into the ground. (Vojinovic Z., 2015, p.105)

Co-benefits and impacts

If filters are added, it should be installed to ensure that the pollutants carried by the street water are not polluting the soil and the groundwater. (Vojinovic Z., 2015, p.105)
