Drainage Services Porto Alegre, BrazilBrazilian prisoners are too often forced to endure appalling daily living conditions in the country's prisons, jails and police lockups. Source control devices, also known as compensatory measures, are called Low Impact Development (LID) devices, which use or mimic natural processes that result in the infiltration, evapotranspiration or use of stormwater in order to protect water quality and aid in the management of quantity.

Unlike the Brazilian conventional drainage that practice the construction of monofunctional flood storage reservoirs (called in Brazil as piscinões”), the BGI also promotes a harmonious and balanced interaction between the population and the urban landscape.
Irregularity is a multidimensional phenomenon involving tenure issues (e.g., legal rights of occupation, title registration); compliance with urban norms and regulations (e.g., lot sizes, allowance for public spaces, street layouts); the number and quality of services provided; the type of area where desentupidora zona norte porto alegre settlement occurs (e.g., ecologically risky areas, hillsides, contaminated brownfields); and above all the occupation process itself, which is usually the opposite of formal development, whereby occupation is the culmination of a legal and regulated sequence from titling to planning to servicing.
The patients allocated to group 2 had significantly longer ECC and drainage times than those in group 1. These factors are directly associated with reduced pulmonary compliance and with dysfunction, 15 , 34 and this may explain our results, which were different from those of previous studies.
Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) - where stormwater is treated as close to the source as possible in as natural a manner as possible - is one approach that municipalities could be using to manage stormwater in a more holistic manner and gain the multiple benefits that conventional systems do not offer (Charlesworth et al., 2003).
Most of the German dialects speakers in southern Brazil spoke or eventually adopted Hunsrückisch so that it became the most commonly used German dialect in this part of the world and is still spoken by many people today (also referred to as Riograndenser Hunsrückisch to differentiate it from the Hunsrückisch spoken in Germany).
In this study it was proposed the adoption of several Green and Blue Infrastructure techniques in a system of open green spaces in order to solve the problems related to drainage and pollution in the watershed, as will be described in more detail below.
