Managing Urban Runoff Handbook

Developed for the Singapore Public Utility Board, the “Managing Urban Runoff” handbook serves as a holistic stormwater management solutions guide for developers, designers, planners, and engineers. During employment at Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl Singapore, Pedro Santa served as the project manager, lead author, and content coordinator – providing leadership in WSUD, ABC Waters, Stormwater Management, conducting inter-agency meetings, and delivering presentations to the client-agency PUB throughout the production of the document.

This island-wide policy document addresses technical considerations for “Source, Pathway, and Receptor” solutions in urban catchments, with the overall objective to propel Singapore’s progress in becoming a water-sensitive city. The handbook showcases concepts and case studies of stormwater management and flood protection measures that ensure the resiliency of private plots.

Highlight: This Handbook received an Honor Award from the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects in 2013. The recognition of this Guideline Document/handbook helped to solidify strong working relationships with Singapore Agencies and confirmed Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl’s standing as the industry leader in Stormwater Management solutions in the city-state.
