WORKING WITH NATURE - SUSTAINABLE DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

SuDS Maintenance

Sustainable Drainage Systems –  SuDS

Through our Grounds Maintenance work we have built up considerable experience and knowledge of Sustainable Drainage Systems and how to manage and maintain them.

Sustainable drainage systems are a collection of water management practices that aim to align modern drainage systems with natural water processes. SuDS are designed to either provide storage, through the retention of surface water runoff, or attenuation through the detention of surface water runoff. Retention is primarily provided on the surface through ponds, and underground through tanks, more commonly geocellular tanks. Detention is often provided by detention basins.

At 4th Corner, we offer effective maintenance and management of SuDS and Swales which includes:

  • Sediment monitoring and removal when required
  • Vegetation management
  • Litter/debris removal
  • Inlet/outlet cleaning

For an example of how we maintain SuDS effectively see our Maintenance Guide below.
