with ecological infiltration blocks
Climate change will cause more extreme weather conditions
This was forecasted by the Dutch weather institute. Evidence of this was seen especially over the last few summers. Europe will face even more difficulties associated with climate change and its consequential effects. Flooded streets, flooded homes, traffic congestion due to water reaching the surface, etc.
Hydrorock International offers a simple, yet sustainable solution to combat these kinds of problems caused by flooding. Hydrorock® infiltration blocks drain and buffer rain and surface water in an environmentally friendly manner. The natural and one of a kind material absorbs excess surface and rain water with a maximum capacity of 93% of its volume. Filter cloth allows for gradual infiltration into the surrounding soil. Its buffering capacity limits the need for extensive excavation.
Due in part to its adaptability, the infiltration blocks can be used to prevent flooding in many ways. For example by separating rainwater in residential areas, commercial business locations and (existing) roads. Or even to prevent a flood of water on street level, highways, recreational areas, playing fields, gardens and parks through draining, buffering and infiltration.
“”All forms of precipitation and their intensity increase during the winter months. Even the intensity of extreme rainfall during the summer months is on the rise. Hail and storms are growing even more fierce.”The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI)
