Monitoring for green infrastructure

Cities and urban centers face a major challenge in managing flood risk and stormwater effectively. To combat this issue, billions of dollars have been invested in green infrastructure systems and subsurface stormwater systems, strategically hidden by urban green spaces, to mitigate damage from heavy rainfall and flooding.

In built-up urban areas, water management is increasingly important where pavement and bricks are sealing soils, and preventing saturation of water. This is where green infrastructure comes into play to ensure flood resiliency and improve the viability of urban ecology.

Data Integration Green Infrastructure Management

Wireless soil moisture sensors play a critical role in providing insights for green infrastructure. Placed in green roofs, green walls, medians, and storm runoff areas, water is captured within the green infrastructure, and runoff is reduced.

By integrating soil moisture data into green infrastructure management platforms, green managers and municipalities can gain insight into the functionality of green infrastructural sites. This reduces the maintenance and labor requirements, improves operability, and saves millions in damages from preventable flooding.
