WWT is currently exhibiting at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. Our theme this year is ‘SuDS – what are they?’
Well, what are SuDS? Sustainable drainage systems – and the way we can manage rain flow to minimise flooding and create valuable wildlife habitat at the same time.
Some of our WWT Consulting projects are being showcased, including SuDS for Schools where we worked with colleagues in WWT to design and implement sustainable drainage systems for ten schools in London to take rainwater runoff from roofs, car parks and playgrounds and created habitat that will be great for wildlife, and exciting (and dry!) places for the students to play and learn. The schemes also help to improve the water quality before it enters local streams and rivers.
