Water management systems – optimised design, engineered to last

New ways of thinking make the future bright for SuDS

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are widely acknowledged to be the most environmentally-acceptable way to manage flood risk and prevent water pollution. Yet, despite their clear multiple benefits, the prevailing professional opinion is that widespread implementation has been too slow.

In an article published in “Project Scotland” magazine, Mark Manning, Business Development Manager at SDS, argues that new ways of thinking mean there has never been a better time for SuDS – and explains why we should expect an acceleration in the use of more sustainable approaches in future.

Last month, long-term supporters of SuDS got some good news: In its historic 25-Year Environment Plan, the UK Government committed to ‘putting in place more sustainable drainage systems’ and outlined key actions to achieve its objectives.

Having reviewed our requirements, SDS took the initiative to design and value engineer a bespoke system, enabling us to pass on significant savings to our client. Their innovative design involved several stages of surface water treatment and was crucial to securing planning approval from the Council and the Environment Agency.

What our Customers say

The installation of a system comprising a device of concrete construction, until now our only option, would have required the use of a 350 tonne crane and most likely, due to the massive inconvenience not just to us but to the airport and local road network, would not have been feasible at all. The Aqua-Swirl™’s versatility meant that we could design the devices for the specific requirements of this site, without the need for any bends in piping, whilst their inherent strength allowed us to save on time and cost through not requiring a concrete surround. Their compact size and small footprint, together with the lifting supports and straps provided, meant installation was very quick and simple and final placement could be done manually; we needed only a single day in which to dig, position, connect up and back fill.
