Abstract. This paper describes a comprehensive and unique open-access data set for research within hydrological and hydraulic modelling of urban drainage systems. The data comes from a mainly combined urban drainage system covering a 1.7 km2 area in the town of Bellinge, a suburb to the city of Odense, Denmark. The data set consists of up to 10 years of observations (2010–2020) from 13 level meters, one flow meter, one position-sensor and four power sensors in the system, along with rainfall data from three rain gauges and two weather radars (X- and C-band), and meteorological data from a nearby weather station. The system characteristics of the urban drainage system (information about manholes, pipes etc.) can be found in the data set along with characteristics of the surface area (contour lines etc.). Two detailed hydrodynamic, distributed urban drainage models of the system are provided in the software systems Mike Urban and EPA SWMM. The two simulation models generally show similar responses, but systematic differences are present since the models have not been calibrated. With this data set we provide a useful case that enables independent testing and replication of results from future scientific developments and innovation within urban hydrology and urban drainage system research. The data set can be downloaded from https://doi.org/10.11583/DTU.c.5029124, (Pedersen et al., 2021a).

Short summary
Comprehensive data set from a combined sewer system in a 1.7 km2 suburban area. Up to 10 years of observations (2010–2020) from level sensors, a flow meter, position- and power sensors, rain gauges, X- and C-band weather radars, and a weather station are included along with distributed hydrodynamic models and CCTV pipe network data. This enables independent testing and replication of results from future scientific developments within urban hydrology and urban drainage system research.
