About this book

The book presents a comprehensive study of the percolation of water from surface runoff with a focus on the retention capacity and intensity of precipitation.

Discussing the state of the art in scientific knowledge and solutions for the infiltration of water from surface runoff, the book addresses a wide variety of rainwater management issues, from precipitation, surface runoff and water infiltration, to impact on the drainage system. Although modern urban hydrology has improved the management of rainwater runoff for flood protection, public health, and environmental protection, current methods of drainage in urban areas mean that there is a continued threat to the regime of water flow and water resources. In this context, the book presents a new approach to rainwater management based on a unique fusion of hydrology, hydrogeology, urban engineering, and water management. It also includes research findings that are helpful in developing recommendations and technical guidelines for the use of infiltration systems in urban areas.

About the authors

Martina Zeleňáková is associated professor in the field of environmental engineering at the Institute of Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Košice, Slovakia. In the framework of her scientific-research activities she has focused on solution of water management problems, rainwater management, environmental impacts assessment and separately on the assessment of environmental risks in river basins in relation to flood events, drought and water pollution. The results of her scientific-research work have been published in national and international journals, scientific conference proceedings, proceedings of national and international conferences. She is author of three educational textbooks and six monographs, she has cooperated in solving of national and international projects, of which in six cases she has been the principal investigator of the project.

Gabriela Hudáková graduated master degree and PhD degree in the field of environmental engineering at the Institute of Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Košice, Slovakia. Her scientific work as well as her thesis was devoted to rainwater management and design of infiltration facilities. She was participating in project implementation regarding the rainwater management in urban areas and she published the results of her research in scientific proceedings of national and international conferences.

Agnieszka Stec currently works at the Department of Infrastructure and Water Management, Rzeszów University of Technology Poland. She does research in Environmental Engineering focusing on rainwater management, rainwater utilization, drainage systems in urban areas. Her most recent publication is 'The impact of land use and urbanization on drainage system.' She is participating in research as well professional projects.
