Runoff model

A hydrodynamic runoff model identifies potential bottlenecks in the sewer and stormwater drainage systems in the event of large rainfall amounts. Calculations provide the initial overview of where the systems are likely to overflow first and, thus, where there is a risk of flooding. This information can be combined with knowledge about surface flow paths and about depressions in the terrain where water is likely to build up. If water rises near the areas at risk been identified in the flood map analysis, additional calculations will be needed.
