Abstract

Tunnels have been integrated in many urban drainage systems to assist in preventing combined sewer overflows and flooding. Despite a wide range of designs, these structures share a common defining feature: conveying and storing large quantities of water. Urban tunnel systems can then be classified based on the type of water conveyed (wastewater, stormwater, or combined). The analysis of a representative sample of case studies shows how tunnels have been adapted to different economic, demographic, and climatic contexts. Across different designs, the management of existing urban tunnels can be optimized with intelligent monitoring and control strategies. These require models capable of providing real-time system-wide state estimates and reliable forecasts
