Flood Water Protection in the City of Buenos Aires
The Arroyo Mendrano is the second largest channeled stream of water running through Buenos Aires. In case of heavy rainfalls it overflows its banks and causes considerable material damage. When the retention basin which had been especially built to collect large quantities of water during strong precipitation events also overflowed, the government decided to have an alarm-system installed to monitor the water level in the basin.
