(July 1 – 6 – Palermo)
A complete new pluvial flood map for Flanders will be presented during the 2018 international conference on hydroinformatics (HIC) - July 1-6 in Palermo.
This map describes the risk of areas being flooded by pluvial floods (direct runoff of storm water) for the present and future climate.
The study was made by HydroScan in collaboration with UK partner JBA consulting and commissioned by the Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM).
Presentation in Palermo will be done by Kris Cauwenberghs, Head of the Department Flood Management of VMM.
