The effect of CCL is observed in the end of the period, reducing surface runoff and increasing the stable infiltration rate (SIR).
Our results emphasize the need for the long-term monitoring of the dynamic changes of factors driving the variation in surface runoff. This will help in taking tracking measures to deal with the complex water resource challenges through focusing on the dynamic changes of the key factors driving surface runoff variation.
The cured TERRAVEST does not seal off the soil surface or create a solid cover that could increase surface runoff or prevent vegetation growth.
The carshalton / hackbridge area of the borough is in a critical drainage area and to alleviate surface water flooding, the project will install suds features into seven local schools, to attenuate surface runoff. The project aims are: 1.
The DID attributed the flash floods to continuous heavy rains, high tide, overflow from rivers, and drainage systems' inability to accommodate water surface runoff.
To address this problem, Sustainable Land Management Committees have been set up in seven communes, training Lydia and over 700 other community members on sustainable land management practices such as reforestation, digging erosion barriers and creating channels to prevent surface runoff, leading to the restoration of 30 ha of degraded land in Lydias village and 105 ha across the region so far.
