New developments in built-up conurbations and the unstoppable urbanization of areas have exacerbated the potentially damaging effects of conventional surface-water drainage. Our stormwater management systems can help combat this.
What Is Stormwater Management?
Stormwater management is the process of reducing urban runoff of rainwater to tackle issues of flooding, erosion and infrastructure damage. Increasing the instances pervious surfaces throughout the urban environment.
Traditional drainage of stormwater run-off was designed to rapidly convey rainwater from where it has fallen to a soakaway or watercourse. This old method increases the risks of flooding, environmental damage, and urban diffuse pollution, as run-off water usually carries contaminants including oils, heavy metals, pesticides, fertilisers, chemicals, and other organic matter.
The implementation of sustainable drainage systems – demonstrated in outline as well as detailed applications and design submissions – is now demanded by authorities as a prerequisite of planning considerations, from early site evaluations, design and environmental-impact assessments.
GreenBlue’s stormwater management solutions provide a sustainable and effective approach to low impact development.
