Study on the Impact Factors of Environmental Facility Planning and Design on Urban Development

In the world of advancement, the development of the urban environment by providing favorable and secure conditions to the population are always directed to environmental factors of various levels.

Choosing the LID for Urban Storm Management in the South of Taiyuan Basin by Comparing the Storm Water Reduction Efficiency

Low impact development (LID) is a storm management philosophy. This paper aims at choosing the LID for urban storm management by comparing the efficiency in the south urban district in the Taiyuan

Stormwater harvesting for residential and non-residential reuse is an important and crucial aspect to reduce freshwater demand to address climate change, population growth and urbanisation

A Discussion on the Application of Terminology for Urban Soil Sealing Mitigation Practices

Soil sealing is one of the most serious environmental problems today regarding its impact on cities. This article presents an analysis of the different urban practices currently used to mitigate the

Exploring the Relationships between Impervious Surface Percentage and Frequency of Urban Waterlogging: A Case Study in Hanoi, Vietnam

In developing countries, rapid urbanization reduces the natural land area and increases the impervious surface. At the same time, urban rainstorm waterlogging is also becoming more frequent and

The potential of sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) as an adaptive strategy to climate change in the Spanish Mediterranean

ABSTRACT Changes in weather pattern caused by climate change generate more frequent extreme rain events as well as droughts. Sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) are useful adaptations to this

The Effectiveness of Global Constructed Shallow Waterbody Design Guidelines to Limit Harmful Algal Blooms

Constructed shallow waterbodies are often designed and built to limit harmful algal blooms in urban regions. Efforts to reduce algal bloom occurrence in these waterbodies have largely focused on

Bioretention performance: a review of field studies

ABSTRACT Over the past decade, there have been multiple studies into how bioretention systems perform in field, rather than laboratory, conditions, and into the quality of stormwater coming off urban

Integrating Water Sensitive Design in the Architectural Design Studio in China: Challenges and Outcomes

Urban areas around the world are increasingly facing environmental challenges such as water scarcity, water pollution, and water-related disasters, which demands sustainable design solutions for



Fifty years of water sensitive urban design, Salisbury, South Australia

Australia has developed extensive policies and guidelines for the management of its water. The City of Salisbury, located within metropolitan Adelaide, South Australia, developed rapidly through

Improving Urban Stormwater Quality - From Theory to Implementation

Conventional urban stormwater management has focused on providing highly efficient drainage systems to rapidly collect and remove stormwater runoff using a combination of underground pipes and linear

Integrating Decentralized Rainwater Management in Urban Planning and Design: Flood Resilient and Sustainable Water Management Using the Example of Coastal Cities in The Netherlands and Taiwan

Urbanized delta areas worldwide share a growing tendency of exposure to water stress induced by the effects of climate change and anthropogenic factors, threatening the operation of infrastructure

The aim of this research is to assist urban water managers with understanding the scope of the hydro-social contracts currently operating across cities in order to determine the capacity development and cultural reform initiatives needed to effectively expedite the transition to more sustainable water management and ultimately to Water Sensitive Cities.

Analysis of the impact of low impact development on runoff from a new district in Korea.

It is concluded from these results that LID is worthy of consideration for urban flood control in future development and as part of sewer and stormwater management planning.

Sustainable Drainage Practices in Spain, Specially Focused on Pervious Pavements

The Spanish climate is full of contrasts, with torrential rains and long droughts; under these conditions, appropriate water management is essential. In Spain, until the end of the twentieth century,

Neglected Canals: Deterioration of Indigenous Irrigation System by Urbanization in the West Peri-Urban Area of Bangkok Metropolitan Region

This paper discusses the deterioration of indigenous irrigation system traditionally developed in the past to serve the peri-urban agricultural lands that have been affected by rapid urbanization in

Restoring a stream through retention of urban stormwater runoff: a catchment-scale experiment in a social–ecological system

This work designed and monitored a catchment-scale experiment that involved the retrofit of urban stormwater infrastructure throughout an urban catchment to restore more natural hydrology, water quality, and consequently, ecological condition in the receiving stream.

Effectiveness of Low Impact Development Practices: Literature Review and Suggestions for Future Research

Low impact development (LID) is a land development strategy for managing stormwater at the source with decentralized micro-scale control measures. Since the emergence of LID practices, they have been
