[en] Rainwater runoff problems have become critical in large cities because of the increasing imperviousness of surfaces. Best practices to manage urban runoff improve water infiltration and evaporation through green areas establishment and, therefore, natural hydrological cycle restoration. The aim is to evaluate rainwater runoff from different types of roof storage systems and to conclude about their own interests to manage urban runoff production.
