SUDS: Sustainable Drainage Systems
Our extensive range of geosynthetics enables the most appropriate sustainable drainage solution to be selected for the appropriate environment. Consideration should always be given to the specific site conditions and the anticipated lifetime of the construction.
What Are Sustainable Drainage Systems?
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, more commonly known as SUDS, control and manage both the flows and volumes of surface water and water pollution, thereby reducing the risk of flooding by making use of landscape and natural vegetation. SUDS Systems can be in the form of ponds, swales, permeable paving and filtration or attenuation tanks.
These systems have become increasingly popular in the UK with the introduction of regulation document Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010. The regulation applies to all new developments with more than one house and to any construction area of 100m² or more in Wales and the New Design and Construction Guidance (DCG) for the sewage sector replaces SfA7 for England.
How Do JUTA SUDs Systems Work?
Our sustainable drainage systems use a series of techniques to collect, store, and clean surface water before it’s released back into the environment at a more controlled flow rate. Our systems typically follow the SUDS management train in the following stages:
