Sustainable & Surface Water Drainage Systems
Surface water drainage systems should be addressed at the start of any project, ensuring that the scheme is effective not just for the property, but also the site in question. Each site is different and with effective drainage design, flood risk can be minimised. For existing sites, a Site Assessment can be undertaken.
At FPS Environmental Ltd, we have over 10 years experience in designing surface water drainage systems, and reviewing existing systems. Surface water has previously been overlooked, however it is now more important than ever to ensure your surface water system is suitable.
As part of your development project, you may be required to manage the surface water onsite, to reduce peak flows and to ensure flood risk is not exacerbated in the surrounding areas. The former ethos was to remove surface water as quickly as possible, via large pipes to the nearest watercourse, however this leads to an increase in flash flooding and pollution, and the systems can be easily overwhelmed. It is far superior to manage surface water through sustainable drainage systems and ‘slow the flow’. FPS Environmental can help with a specialist surface water assessment.
Drainage issues are becoming apparent on existing sites as sustainable drainage design was not previously mandatory, thus leading to a lack of detailed on-site drainage proposals and also potential overloading of existing drainage networks, exacerbating surface water flooding. Through effective surface water management, it may be possible to manage and minimise your flood risk. At FPS Environmental we have been able to significantly reduce the likelihood of surface water flooding across sites around the U.K.
