Stormwater Management

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.

ArborCell

The GreenBlue Urban ArborCell unit is a load bearing module designed for water attenuation and distribution within the ArborFlow SuDS tree pit system.

RootRain Linear Drain

For hard surface drainage

​ArborFlow

A tree planting system specifically designed to bring measurable and sustainable stormwater management benefits.

KerbFlow Inlets

This inlet gives a simple and durable means of conveying rain water run-off into the catchment zone for attenuation.

Stormwater Storage

GreenBlue Urban’s load-bearing modules for stormwater storage are a cost-effective option that meets maximum load-bearing requirements.
