China's sponge cities: soaking up water to reduce flood risks 1.10.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
From permeable roads to rooftop gardens, cities are investing in ways to harvest rainwater Trillions of litres of free, fresh water drop from the sky onto the world’s cities each year – yet most of it is channelled straight into gutters, drains and rivers. At best, this represents a waste of a valuable natural resource. At worst, it can lead to devastating urban floods like the one in the Japanese city of Joso this month that killed eight and destroyed hundreds of homes. With cities getting bigger and climate change threatening to bring more extreme weather, some scientists and politicians are proposing “sponge cities”, a reimagination of the urban environment where almost every raindrop is captured, controlled and ...

Thousands of untapped streams pouring off hillsides hold the promise of generating clean energy and income for local farming communities

The little stream bubbling off the Black Mountain and tumbling 300ft down to the river Towey in the Brecon Beacons has no name and is far too small to feature on most maps. But for Welsh hill farmer Howell W illiams , over whose 290 acres of steep and boggy pasture land it flows, it is an unexpected pension and a simple way to keep rural Wales populated.
