Flood water mitigation of Rio Molgorana
Preliminary, final and executive
The project has concerned the preliminary, final and executive design (ex. D. Lgs. 50/2016) of a flood retention basin on the Rio Molgorana, in order to reduce the frequent floods occurring in the municipality of Arcore. The design of the flood retention basin, has been developed using the software for integrated catchment modelling Infoworks ICM, simulating the combined effects of the flows of the Rio Molgorana and of the sewage system. The volume of the designed basin is about 16000 m3. In terms of landscape, it has been decided to create a sort of “gathered space” in between the existing wood, in order to give value to the green area. In addition, the design includes a cycle path with equipped area, a relax area and a permanent wetland on the bottom of the basin, with hygrophile vegetation.
