Nowadays, after periods of time without precipitation, more and more frequent rains are coming in with very high flows in very short time. In case of extreme precipitation phenomena, sewer networks can no longer take rainwater flows, which often occur with large damages, often with loss of life. Drinking water is not renewable. That is why it is important to protect drinking water sources by using rainwater more efficiently. By recovering, storing and using rainwater, costs are reduced by treating and transporting drinking water, reducing the amount of electricity consumed, and ultimately reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The amounts of rainwater that can’t be stored can be allowed to infiltrate the ground to restore groundwater levels. By ensuring efficient rainwater management, all these objectives can be met. The use of different water retention systems can prevent the devastating effects of torrential rains by controlling the flows of these waters and using them for irrigation and household needs. Integrated solutions can only be implemented in collaboration with architects choosing architectural solutions that integrate retention, drainage and pluvial systems, and road construction engineers who, through solutions adopted for road surfaces, allow rainwater to infiltrate the soil.
