Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS)

Sustainable Drainage Systems

As of 7th January 2019, inclusion of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) in Wales is now mandatory for new housing developments which will have several pressing implications for the entire industry. Although the regulation is only currently enforced in Wales, it is only a matter of time before the rest of the UK catches up.

Innovyze drainage design and analysis solutions are used by designers, engineers, consultants, developers, reviewers, approving authorities and water companies working on new and retrofit projects.

MicroDrainage is the design power behind SuDS installations around the UK and Ireland. It delivers a complete design process for SuDS structures; from design concepts to hydraulic flow analysis. Ideal for designing storage, infiltration structures, flow controls, infiltration trenches, porous car parks, cellular storage, swales, MicroDrainage models the benefits of incorporating SuDS, green roofs and rainwater harvesting tanks.

SuDS reduce inundation of traditional storm water drainage networks and help mitigate flood risks. They also improve water quality, amenity and biodiversity, can reduce potable water usage, and positively affect air quality and temperature.
