Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS)

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDs) are an alternative way to convey water from our cities and towns to nearby watercourses. RWB Group works with local authorities, architects, road planners, construction companies, housebuilders, and developers to assess the viability and configuration of SUDs in preparation for submitting planning applications. We also install sustainable drainage systems and provide future maintenance to ensure their ongoing effectiveness.

RWB Group is an expert in the processes and methodology of creating SUDs with experienced engineers, specialist equipment, and vehicles. We are ISO and OHSAS accredited, working to high industry standards.

Sustainable Drainage Surveys and Evaluation

Local planning authorities and national environmental agencies are consistently asking planners and developers to show how water drainage will be managed on the proposed site. We create sustainable drainage systems that manage rainfall in the proximity of where it falls.

Our solutions mimic natural drainage systems, improve water quality, and reduce flooding and water runoff. They also support biodiversity and wildlife through the creation of suitable habitats and improve the places where we live and work.

Through our drainage consultation, topographical surveys, and SUDs evaluation, we can provide you with:

  • SUDs maps
  • SUDs summary
  • Runoff calculations and volumes
  • Flood risks
  • Drainage survey, strategies, and schematics
  • Infiltration potential
  • Surface water features
  • Maintenance plans and management recommendations

At conception, we provide an understanding of the site’s ground conditions, including its infiltration constraints, drainage potential, and ground stability. We can then recommend the most effective SUDs for the site, including solutions such as bio-retention systems, rainwater harvesting systems, wetlands, ponds, filter drains, green roofs, infiltration systems, and detention basins, swales, proprietary treatment systems, and attenuation storage tanks.

SUDs Inspection and Maintenance

RWB Group has a team of technicians and a fleet of vehicles targeted with SUDs inspections and maintenance. We work with businesses and organisations to prevent failures and ensure the operational efficiency of sustainable drainage systems.

We carry out routine and long term actions to spot defects, make repairs, and suggest performance improvements. Our maintenance service helps prevent floods and environmental damage while extending the life of the water drainage scheme.

We assess the specific maintenance needs and carry out silt removal from soakaways, catch-pits, and cellular storage. Our engineers conduct inlet and outlet inspections, vacuum sweeping, and vegetation management.

Our services include:

  • Assessing the structural condition of headwalls and banks
  • Pipework inspections
  • Trimming of vegetation
  • Sediment, litter, and debris removal
  • Removal of petrol and oil residues
  • De-silting of attenuation ponds
  • Sediment excavation
  • Erosion repairs and rehabilitation
  • Reinstation of design levels
