Abstract

As cities develop, more land is converted into impervious surfaces, which do not allow water to infiltrate. Careful urban planning is needed to ensure that the hydrologic cycle and water quality of the catchment areas are not affected. There are techniques that can attenuate peak flow during rain events and reduce the amount of metals, nutrients, and bacteria that enter the urban water cycle. This brief gives a short introduction on bioretention systems and documents the effectiveness of some 36 plant species in removing water pollutants. A summary on the maintenance requirements is also presented.

Abstract

For several years, European cities increasingly focus on long-term planning perspectives due to their spatial development, separated and independent of classic urban land-use planning. As a logical consequence, the city of Karlsruhe define the challenge to develop a spatial mission statement called „Räumliches Leitbild"". For the city anniversary in 2015, most of the development process of the spatial mission statement is documented through an exhibition and the present publication.
