Our part in the project management
The Company’s hydrology team serves as the engineering consultant for the Tel Aviv Municipality in the fields of surface runoff management and flood prevention. To this end, the existing system in the Hatikva neighborhood has been measured and tested, the drainage system has been redesigned using the SWMM model and modifications to the drainage plans have been recommended. In this way, bottlenecks and environmental constraints have been identified, with the aim of preventing the familiar scenes of winter floods due to strong rainfall, in an attempt to utilize existing infrastructures as far as possible and avoid further infrastructure work.
