this study proposes the results of a research activity devoted to the analysis and development of methodologies, models and strategies, which allow integrating decentralized solutions such as rainwater harvesting, greywater reuse systems, and green technologies in buildings. A methodology based on a hydraulic/hydrological model developed by means of SWMM is presented. It allows estimating the optimal size of the storage tanks, considering the overall efficiency of the system, and calculating the wastewater overflows reduction. This study is carried out within the Work Package three (WP3) of the GST4Water project funded by the Emilia-Romagna Regional Council (Italy) through the European Regional Development Fund 2014–2020 ERDF—ROP.
