Watch video: Harnessing data to make the water system more robust (Nederlands ondertiteld)


In this third webinar from the Climate Adaptation series you will see two great examples on how to use data to make the water system more robust and fit for the future.

Charlie Showers from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in Australia tells about the way data can be used to respond to and mitigate against extreme post fire hydro-geomorphic risks. For example such as flash floods, debris flows (high magnitude events similar to landslides or mudflows) and degraded water quality.

Caspar Geelen from Wetsus and Wageningen University explains how data collected from various sources, such as real-time pressure and flow sensors, can be used to obtain insight in the buried water pipe networks. 

The webinar was held in English and can be watched below with Dutch subtitles.
