The objective of this website is to provide some information and documents related to my research and teaching activities in urban hydrology and drainage. On the left side, the menu bar gives a first view of its content. Have a nice visit !

Left: wastewater discharged on the road from a surcharged (and open !) manhole in a street in Beirut, Lebanon. Right: the manhole cover is just 2 meters away, along a building wall - During storm events, many manholes are uncovered to avoid blockages, but with high risks for pedestrians, cars, etc. (photos JLBK, January 2004).
