The management of stormwater to reduce flooding is an increasing problem within new and existing developments.
Conventional drainage often contributes to flooding and water quality problems. The use of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) not only provides stormwater runoff attenuation, but also treats polluted runoff and provides additional amenity value from surface waters within urban and rural environments.
WWT Consulting offers a comprehensive design and build service for swales, detention basins, retention ponds and wetland treatment systems which can be used in combination to provide SuDS solutions to our clients. We also offer maintenance and management guidance for systems.
Our expertise in habitat design and management also ensures that SuDS maximise wildlife value opportunities. As a result, our designs can contribute to local Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) targets. WWT, with the RSPB, has produced a guide for local authorities and developers, detailing how to ensure maximum benefits for wildlife as well as people. Please download it from the link below if you think it will be of use or contact us if you would like help with design.
Raising awareness of water issues can also be undertaken within a SuDS scheme so we offer all our clients a comprehensive interpretation service.
