An inner city square in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen is redesigned into a complex climate adaptation solution with parking as well as large storm water retention capacity underground, permable tiles and recreational facilities to prevent flooding, improve air quality and mitigate heat island effect. However, the actual effect of the solution is not tested and documented.
In close collaboration with industry partners, a novel monitoring system is developed and installed to provide real-time measurements of all important water flows and bodies in the urban catchment including water content of permeable tiles, water volumes in reservoir, precipitation and discharge from the reservoir.
CALL Copenhagen has helped problem owners and technology providers
- Set up a public-private innovation partnership
- Facilitate a full scale demonstration and documentation project
- Inform the development of next level water management methodologies and technologies
The monitoring system is installed and measurements are ongoing.
Furthermore, a novel control system is being developed to control the discharge in collaboration with the three downstream utilities in order to enable the full potential of a smart and sustainable urban drainage system.
The systems are based on open API’s utilizing a city-wide wireless communication infrastructure.
