Recently, legislation around stormwater management and industry trends have rapidly affected stormwater infrastructure and guidelines for implementing a stormwater management system.
Existing stormwater management systems are sometimes outdated, overtaxed or designed to outdated codes. Often, there’s a scarcity of useable land in urban areas and safety issues to consider.
Now, more than ever, urban sites need to manage stormwater runoff, collection and release in a more viable way. Without a proper stormwater management system in place, businesses could face damage to their infrastructure, costly repairs or even devastating fines from local and national governing bodies.
Legislation, best management practices and industry trends, including Low Impact Development (LID) and sustainable drainage scheme (SUDS) are driving the need for stormwater management products that are able to fit in smaller space constraints, have reduced maintenance required and low installation costs.
Some sites require a stormwater management system to be implemented retroactively and tie into an existing stormwater system, which presents design and space challenges. Generally, criteria for an optimal drainage asset, include:
While covering these issues, this webinar will include a discussion about how a subsurface stormwater management system designed for surface water infiltration and storage can address concerns raised by local and national bodies.
