Ponds

HITACHI

A SUDS pond is a man-made pool that enables storage of stormwater in a natural environment with aquatic vegetation planted along its banks that encourages wildlife. Ponds provide stormwater attenuation and flood alleviation whilst providing a landscaped amenity in housing or commercial developments.

Green roofs or “living roofs” are roofs of buildings that are partially or completely covered with carefully selected soils and self-sustaining and drought-resistant vegetation such as succulents and mosses, planted over an impermeable, waterproof membrane.

Collecting rainwater where it falls and making it immediately available for reuse makes perfect sense. As well as saving water, rainwater harvesting can provide SUDS-compliant attenuation and storage at-source.

Infiltration is a priority process for Sustainable Drainage Systems to ensure control of water as close as possible to the point of falling and mimic natural processes.
