How Can We Help?

AquaFluxus is constantly searching for the recognition of water value in both natural and constructed environments within the concepts of environment  sustainability. We offer through our services a wider safety to enterprises near flood risk areas. Besides the benefits such as reducing expenses with oversized construction protection, we also turn your enterprise unique by embodying sustainable concepts.

COST REDUCTION

Environmental sustainable concepts

BIGGER PRECISION

Mathematical modelling for efficient design

SAFETY

EVALUATION OF SAFETY QUOTA AGAINST FLOODING DIAGNOSIS

Starting from 1 rain scenario to be previously determined and with the assistance of a hydrodynamic modelling computer system developed at COPPE/UFRJ, it is possible to determine, with high precision, the safety quota for enterprises built near rivers and lakes.

FLOOD CONTROL PROJECT

With the same hydrodynamic modelling system , it is possible to make one diagnosis for two previously  determined rain scenarios and present one solution to reduce flood risks in the enterprise. Furthermore it also can be evaluated the project impacts in near water systems and in drainage system itself. The project will be developed within the concepts of sustainable drainage, aiming the reduction of  both the risk of uncontrolled flood in the drainage system and the costs of long term.

DETENTION TANKS DESIGN

As an world trend, Rio de Janeiro city obliges enterprises with over 500m² of constructed area to install detention tanks according to Law 23.940/2004. The project includes the tank´s design in new constructions or from an already existing drainage project.

SUSTAINABLE DRAINAGE SYSTEM FOR BUILDINGS

Elaborated from sustainable drainage concepts, this project includes the drainage system as a whole, foreseeing technical solutions as detention tanks, infiltration devices, capture and exploitation of rain water, green roofs and others.

FLOOD MAPPING IN URBAN AND RURAL BASINS

One of the cheapest measures of preventing consequent damages from floods is by mapping them and defining the risks of flooding on different points of the watershed. AquaFluxus builds these maps from mathematical modelling results which gives them high precision results.

Projects –

Hidrologycal and Hydrodynamic Study to calculate flood security quota for enterprises

The study establishes the landfill quota, which is the minimum level that the ground must have in order to build and enterprise, concerning flooding risks. The main objective of defining this quota is to assure protection against fluvial floods. Hence, the minimum quota needs to be equal or above the maximum quota of water in the river during a flood associated to a 50 years recurrence interval storm.

Hydrological Study to define the flood river flows in a project of Macaé-Campos channel close to a new port implementation

Consultoria técnica para elaboração de estudos hidrológicos na bacia hidrográfica do Canal Macaé-Campos, conforme demanda solicitada pela Masterplan, a fim de estimar vazões de cheias no canal, considerando diferentes tempos de recorrência. Os resultados foram utilizados para subsidiar parte do processo de licitação junto ao Instituto Estadual do Ambiente do Rio de Janeiro.

Guandu River Channel Deviation Project

A CEDAE prevê a construção de uma barragem para a Proteção da Tomada D’Água da CEDAE no Rio Guandu. Essa barragem evitará que as águas poluídas das bacias hidrográficas dos rios Poços/Queimados e Ipiranga/Cabuçu comprometam a qualidade da água captada para a Estação de Tratamento de Água do Guandu. Porém, em um Estudo de Impactos Ambientais elaborado pela AGRAR foi observada a possível conseqüência da implantação do projeto nos níveis d’água das lagoas, prejudicando também a qualidade de suas águas pela interrupção da comunicação do rio Guandu com as lagoas. Esse quadro poderia formar uma grande área de brejo em períodos de estiagem no local das lagoas, com péssimas condições de ambientais. Para evitar isso, foi dada como solução, a construção de um canal de ligação do rio Guandu com as Lagoas, permitindo um controle para abastecimento das lagoas em períodos de estiagem. A AquaFluxus elaborou o projeto hidráulico desse canal, a pedido da Agrar – Consultoria e Estudos Técnicos.

Hydrologic - Hydrodynamic Study to define the security quota and flood control project. Duque de Caxias, RJ

Estudo para diagnosticar o impacto da instalação de um empreendimento em uma área inundável sobre o sistema hídrico local e um projeto de controle de inundações para diminuir esse impacto, reduzindo, também, o próprio custo de implantação do empreendimento. Foi elaborado, pela AquaFluxus, um projeto de controle de inundações para garantir a segurança hidráulica contra a cheia dos rios circunvizinhos, assim como reduzir os custos associados ao alteamento do terreno. Nesse propósito, foi sugerida a instalação de um “polder”, projetado para, simultaneamente, evitar que as águas dos rios circunvizinhos atingissem o empreendimento e que a água precipitada na área interna ficasse acumulada em um reservatório-pulmão, possibilitando, também, reduzir a velocidade com que os escoamentos gerados pelo empreendimento chegam ao sistema fluvial, durante um evento de cheia na bacia.

Flood Study at the Integrated Action Perimeter Tiquatara 2, basin of Ponte Rasa stream, São Paulo

Tal estudo engloba aspectos hidrológicos e hidrodinâmicos relacionados diretamente com os eventos de cheia, contemplando o diagnóstico atual do sistema de macrodrenagem local, indicando possíveis ações para o controle do risco de inundações na região, considerando o planejamento urbanístico em elaboração para a área, pelo escritório ARCHE Consultoria, Planejamento e Projetos, no âmbito do Concurso RenovaSp, para Requalificação Urbana e Habitação de Interesse Social. O resultado do estudo definiu o padrão do comportamento hidrodinâmico do Córrego Ponte Rasa, que cruza a área em questão, durante eventos de chuvas intensas, indicando áreas de maior risco às inundações e possíveis intervenções para mitigação desses riscos.

They are more than a service provider, they´re partners worried in offering the best techniques and always ready to atend us. Undoubtedly, AquaFluxus is a company that preaches for professionalism and respect to their clients."

    Leonardo Mesquita DIRECTOR / CURY CONSTRUTORA E INCORPORADORA
  • "Working with AquaFluxus was a very gratifying experience. The enthusiasm of his team and especially the attitude "let me solve it" gave me hope not to give up and move on, at a time when everything seemed to go against the Project Mudar. AquaFluxus was able to develop a technically correct project (and this is obligation; part of professional ethics) that also solved our client´s operational and economic problem (they did this applying theory in "the real world"). I wish lots of success to AquaFluxus and their bright team and hope to work together with them in future projects."
