Engineers control water quality in a wastewater treatment plant

North West Cambridge is a new greenfield development consisting of 3,000 new homes and a 100,000m2 research and office space on the edge of Cambridge, UK. The associated expansion in impermeable surfaces increased the rate of run‐off and the risk of downstream flooding. This study provided the evidence for developing a site‐wide rain water harvesting network to reduce exposure to risk from flooding and water scarcity.
