Integrated approaches for flood control

Integrated flood control is essential in urban cities to cope with the recurrent inundation. With the economic development of urban cities, the amount of surface area available for water infiltration into the soils such as farmland and unpaved road has been decreased. As a resultant of the impermeable structures and paved roads, stormwater is redirected to the sewerage and drainage system and it poses higher risk of inundation more than ever.
