Hydromedia: A sustainable solution for flood management


Hydromedia is a permeable concrete solution that rapidly absorbs rainwater off streets, parking surfaces, driveways, and walkways, reducing the risk of flooding.This innovative product combines the properties of concrete and advanced drainage technology to create a sustainable and efficient water management system. 

Hydromedia is a blend of cement, aggregates, and water-retaining polymers.The polymers help to bind the water and aggregates together, creating a concrete that is strong and durable. 

Hydromedia works by creating a network of interconnected pores throughout the concrete. These pores allow water to rapidly drain through the concrete into the soil below, which prevents water from pooling on the surface, which can lead to flooding. 

Hydromedia is a sustainable solution for flood management because it reduces the amount of stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff is a source of pollution, as it can carry pollutants from streets, parking lots, and other paved surfaces into rivers, lakes, and oceans. Hydromedia helps to reduce stormwater runoff by allowing water to drain directly into the soil, where it can be filtered and reused. 

Hydromedia is also a cost-effective solution for flood management. The cost of installing Hydromedia is typically lower than the cost of traditional flood control measures, such as storm sewers and detention basins. Hydromedia is also easier to maintain than traditional flood control measures, as it does not require regular cleaning or repairs. 

Benefits of Hydromedia: 

  • Water management to avoid flooding with high permeability and no water surface collection 
  • Drainage rate of 500-600 L/min/m² on average when violent rains fall at 50mm/hour on average 
  • Safe, non-slippery pavement under different conditions 
  • Aesthetic, without slopes necessary to manage water 
  • Sustainable, it is 100% recyclable, reduces the heat island effect and helps recycle rainwater 
  • Ideal for streets, parks, squares, walkways, athletic terrains and roofs 

Hydromedia is a sustainable and cost-effective solution for flood management. It is a proven technology that has been used successfully in applications.
