Preliminary Draft – Drainage

As early as 1961, a drainage system was presented in the Preliminary Draft, which was to be further developed in the execution plan [i].

Three subsystems were defined, using different techniques according to the characteristics of the area they drained:

– Drainage system in a “blind trench”, under the peripheral circulation.

– Piped drainage system under the areas to the east and south that correspond to the areas defined as the Park, and under part of the protected area to the northeast. 

– Groundwater drainage system on the roof of the parking lot.
