Imperviousness – Surface Sealing
Climate change requires our adaptation
Heavy showers = flooding in the city
An adaptation to intenser rainfall is the reduction of paved surface or at least the prevention of an increase. Stakeholders in all circles have to get informed and communicate with each other to reduce the problem.
In order to know whether ‘surface sealing’ increases NEO offers the service of monitoring surfaces on their imperviousness. We do this nationwide at the level of individual gardens and yards. Changes in pavement and imperviousness are updated at least every 2 months.
