STRESZCZENIE ARTYKUŁU
Anthropopressure is considered as the one of the most important causes of disorder of natural water relations in the environment and impoverishment of the landscape. This is particularly evident in urban areas, where the degree of built-up areas and participation of impervious surfaces are still increasing. The result of such processes are extreme phenomena – more frequent droughts and floods. One way to keep a good state of water resources in urban catchments is creating retention and infiltration of rainwater. The paper presents examples of sustainable rainwater management that determine change of the face of the city and increase its friendliness towards the environment.
