Improving water quality and recyclability with help from the Royal Bank of Canada
‘SuDS for Schools’ is a new project being delivered by WWT in partnership with the Environment Agency and Thames Water to protect streams and rivers from pollution. SuDS stands for ‘sustainable drainage schemes’ and we have been contracted to survey ten schools in north London and to design SuDS to capture runoff from roofs, play grounds and carparks. The schemes will be integrated into school grounds and will improve the quality of runoff water before it enters local streams. They will also provide opportunities for outdoor learning about wetland wildlife and climate change. Our staff have been conducting the initial site surveys and designs will be progressed in the coming weeks.
Royal Bank of Canada is providing funding for the schemes through its Blue Water Project and you can help too by simply clicking to vote for WWT’s SuDS for Schools project in this app and share it via social media sites. One click could make a real difference. Thank you!
