In this way, the approach and further development of integrated urban drainage according to consistent guidelines as well as the coordination of the single topics are to be ensured. At the same time the recommended measures intend to systematically create scopes for a flexible selection of technical solutions, measures and constructional systems. The guidelines allow a case-specific application of single regulations and are thus limited to general principles of urban drainage. They are intended to point out links between the basic tasks ("aims") of urban drainage, possible deficiencies in water quality and possible measures including their specific effects in order to balance or reduce these deficiencies. The development, dimensioning and constructive design as well as the operation of measures and systems is respectively dealt with in individual guidelines within the rules and standards. Experts who are in charge of planning drainage systems in municipalities, associations, planning offices and authorities represent the target group of the Standard. The urgency and contents of integrated drainage planning with a holistic and - depending on the urgency - also non-local approach is to be clarified to them.
