Title: City Drain software
This dissertation from the University of Innsbruck (Institute for Environmental Technology, Austria) involved the production and application of the Open Source software City Drain. This software supports improving the efficiency of urban drainage systems with respect to their ecological effects on natural waters. The tool is based on a view of the overall system consisting of canals, water treatment plant and river. On the basis of computer-based simulations, early predictions (in the planning stage) can be made concerning the effects of future interventions. This helps to achieve optimum functioning and thus minimum pollution.
