New case study on the Covenant of Mayors website – A park to manage rainwater in Brno
Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy published a good example of adaptation measure to climate change from Brno, Czech Republic. Great job!
"During torrential rains, Brno's district of Nový Lískovec suffered from overloaded sewerage. The insufficient capacity of the rainwater sewage system prevented further housing construction in the district and increasing the capacity of the sewer system was extremely costly. The district, in a cooperative process with residents, came up with an alternative solution: a park with a lake, retaining the rainwater from the neighboring flats," write Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy on its website.
