Problem area - rainwater nuisance

Storage for water

surfacewater storage & infiltration

Multifunctional Climate Adaptation

Created at: 07 May 2019


The city of Oldenzaal is on a slope. In the event of heavy rainfall, the sewage system cannot process the water on lower parts. There is then water on the street. That is why green zones and play areas are transformed into rainwater storage areas. This playground is laid down and water can be temporarily stored here.

Samenvatting (Dutch description)

De stad Oldenzaal ligt op een helling. Bij hevige neeslag kan de riolering het water niet verwerken op lager gelegen delen. Er is dan sprake van water op straat. Daarom worden groene zones en speelplekken omgevormd tot regenwater bergingsgebied. Deze speeltuin wordt verlaagd aangelegd en water kan hier tijdelijk geborgen worden.
