Sustainable water management

The current water management scheme, based on the "flush and forget" concept, is clearly no more sustainable for a number of reasons: we excessively depend on water resources of high quality; we pollute our water, whose impact can be only partially tackled by centralised wastewater treatment plants; we waste precious resources conveyed by wastewater, such as nitrogen and phosphorous; our cities produce a big amount of urban runoff, increasing a downstream flood. But sustainable water management is possible.

IRIDRA proposes the following approaches for a sustainable water management:

Water saving

Rainwater harvesting

Grey water treatment and reuse

Reuse of wastewater nutrients
