Abstract:The water problems in Enschede have not been resolved yet and the development of new innovations to come up with solutions continues. The municipality and waterboard of Enschede collaborate with the University of Twente to find ways to delay rainwater runoff to the sewer system of Enschede. And a rainwater buffer seemed to be a good option. During heavy rainfall it might be able to buffer enough water to prevent floods and during droughts the stored rainwater can be used to complement other water supplies. The SRB XXL is one of those solutions and originates from the DiY SRB. It is an autonomous and smart device that works with weather prediction data to determine its behavior. This thesis is about the development of a proof of concept scaled version of an urban SRB XXL that has a purpose at all times. However as it turns out it is not safe to bring rainwater runoff directly into contact with people. So the SRB XXL aspect in the city is good, but the water quality needs to be improved.
