HydroS – Name Origins
In ancient Greek mythology, hydros pronounced as hydrus is a primeval god of water.
Phnes, Creator of life was born from Hydros and Gaia, God of earth. In contrast, the star constellation hydrus is a water snake. This shows us, water was highly respected and also seen as threatening in the ancient world.
Both these faces are true, when we look at rivers, oceans, turloughs and other water bodies, they are tame and beautiful most of the time but, when in floods they appear angry and dangerous and threatening our daily life.
Rivers break the banks and flood the low lands by the sides whereas storms along with high tides show the fury of the oceans.
As in ancient world, continuing our respect to water and to minimise the damages of the floods we need to manage water.
In the modern world, water management is many fold and flood risk assessments, flood studies, surface water hydrology studies are done at planning stage. Drainage solutions are provided to mitigate the flood damages.
