What kind of surface water measure are you?
You are a Wetland – naturally!
You really care about water quality and quality of life for all creatures, large and small. You prefer the quiet countryside over a buzzling city and your biggest passion is to enjoy nature’s possibilities.
You are a crucial part of our ecosystems and environments, but sadly, there is far from enough of you in this world. Luckily, people around you have realized this and are working to create more of you.
What a surprise – you are a ditch!
You like it when water has a clear, well-maintained path. It’s important that things work like they should!
Mostly you like to be on top of things, but sometimes you dig yourself under ground like a culvert.
You are a lovely little raingarden.
Engineers only see you as a small depression. But don´t worry. You bring joy to all!
It´s important for you that your surroundings are aesthetically pleasing with wild flowers and such, but sometimes you are a bit high-maintenance.
You are a flood mitigation pond with purpose.
Nothing about you is spontaneous. Rather, it's taken a lot of long-term planning and stakeholder involvement to create you.
In everyday life people usually don't see the real you, you are just seen as a nice green addition to the cityscape. But when it's raining cats and dogs everyone around you is lucky to have such a reliable friend.
