Renovation of the site and flooding



Geohydrological survey of the site Bonaire Comprehensive School (SGB)

Flooding occurs on the site during periods of heavy rainfall. The following work was carried out in order to gain insight into the drainage problems and to indicate potential solutions:

  • Height measurements on the site and adjoining plots
  • Implementation of in-situ permeability measurements (k-value) of ground layers using double ring infiltrometer method
  • Drafting of drainage proposal including water balance, cause analysis and formulated solutions to flooding, taking into account the future development of the site
