Sustainable Drainage Systems

We are currently working with local builders merchants Normans and Pentagon to deliver a Sustainable Drainage (SuDS) System which uses our Recycled Aggregates.
It will provide an environmentally sound paving package which is more cost effective and reduces further quarrying of raw materials.

The concept behind SuDS is to try to replicate natural systems that use cost effective solutions with low environmental impact to drain away dirty and surface water run-off.

The systems work by collection, storage, and cleaning the run-off before allowing it to be released slowly back into the environment, such as into water courses.

The systems operate this way to counter the effects of conventional drainage systems that often allow for flooding, pollution of the environment – with the resultant harm to wildlife – and contamination of groundwater sources used to provide drinking water.

SuDS can also help to protect and enhance ground water quality.
