Abstract

In an urban environment, sewer flooding and combined sewer overflows (CSOs) are a potential risk to human life, economic assets and the environment. In this way, traditional urban drainage techniques seem to be inadequate for the purpose so to mitigate such phenomena, new techniques such as Real Time Control (RTC) of urban drainage systems and Low Impact Development (LID) techniques represent a valid and cost-effective solution. This chapter lists some of the recent experiences in the field of Urban Hydrology consisting in a series of facilities, fully equipped with sensors and other electronical component, to prevent flooding in urban areas. A series of innovative numerical analysis (in Urban Hydrology research) have been proposed to define properties of the hydrological/hydraulic models used to reproduce the natural processes involved.
