Data are not collected and river is seen as the cause of flooding every year.

Sensors along the rivers and laboratorial tests (i.e. drainage speed of green roofs and eco pavements) can show the impact on reducing the flooding levels when you slow down the urban drainage. Calculation of green area required to absorb the water that runs fasts towards the rivers, is another test.

As another way to implement technology, an app could be created where citizens can mesure the level of the water in flooding areas and transmit at the same time to a map. With this data (level, exact local, date and time) the government can work with a real problem, based on facts and with some solutions on their hands.
