This paper summarizes a research project conducted in the University of Seville, in order to design an analysis model that allows the assessment of technical and socio-economic viability of hydrological rehabilitation projects in urban neighbourhoods, through the construction of sustainable drainage infrastructures. The model proposed presents significant developments when compared with the ones traditionally used in sustainable urban drainage systems. On the one hand, the possibility of recovering rainwater with simple treatments, eliminating potential contaminants, has been verified previously, testing water for urban purposes with no quality requirements. Moreover, since the main objective of this project is the “hydrological rehabilitation” of an inhabited neighbourhood, the interaction with social agents is a key factor that must be considered for a more appropriate local management of the water cycle, thus social and educational measurements related to the use of water have been included. The aim of this model is to present sufficient data, both referred to the water quality and hydrological conditions of the neighborhood, in order to design adequate Sustainable Drainage Urban Systems.
