China builds sponge city to improve flood management

China builds a sponge city to improve flood management in central China’s Henan Province.

A sponge city, as the term suggests, is a city that works like a sponge. When there’s rainfall, it absorbs the water and retains it, and when there’s need, it can also release the water it has stored.

Hebi City is one of the country’s model sponge cities. In 2015, the city designated nearly 30 square kilometers as a pilot area for sponge city construction.

The project began by softening the hard, impervious pavement common to the urban landscape.
