We are hosting multiple digital events of one hour each, all aimed at people interested in the developments surrounding smart water management and creating (climate) resilient cities. The ‘we’ in this case are the 14 organizations that shape the SCOREwater project, a Horizon 2020 funded research and innovation project with the aim to link the physical and digital world for city water management solutions.  

Event information

The topic of this even will be the stormwater pollution at construction sites and how to  effectively manage this. 

This will be looked at from the Gothenburg case study. The starting point will be the perspective of the city, how they deal with water in the city in general and how they view the problem of polluted stormwater. This will be followed by an explanation of the SCOREwater approach to tackle this problem. This is not an isolated problem; it exists in many localities. The webinar will end with the broader perspective, EU regulations and shaping policy on stormwater regulation. 

EU legislation is relatively low demanding on stormwater from construction sites - compared to for example rules which apply in the USA. SCOREwater has the ambition to help define how the monitoring should be designed/specified and what demands should be defined as a part of construction projects approval.
