Why building Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS)?


Drainage problems caused by the over use of hard, impermeable materials for the road, driveways and car parks has become a major problem, with an increase on flooding and environmental contamination with water runoff into rivers and groundwater. Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) offer an alternative and long-term way to manage surface water runoff. New legislative and guidance policies, point the way forward to the use of porous systems like DuPont™ Plantex® GroundGrid® for rainwater management.
