Rainwater storage in Geesthacht, Germany
The human body needs water to survive but if you drink too much you will get sick. This also applies to the earth.
The ground can only take a certain amount of water. But heavy rainfalls often overload the ground with water and cause flooding.
The city of Geesthacht took a major step to be prepared for this season’s heavy rainfalls.
Thanks to great teamwork 66 m of DN 2000 and 27 m of DN 300 Hobas GRP pipes with compatible fittings and storages protect the area of Sparkenberg from flooding.
The idea is to simulate the chemical conditions in aggressive sewage, but under an excessive strain in order to cause failure within a reasonable time frame. Turns out Amiblu GRP pipes can easily live up to 150 years.
