New rules for SuDs and pollution management

The Departments for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) launched The Plan for Water in April. Designed to “transform management of the water system, clean up the water environment and create a sustainable supply of water for people, business and natureā€.

However, The Plan for Water is not the only recent initiative that revealed a sharper focus on the environment and water management. Earlier this year the Government announced its intention to implement Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 (FWMA) in England. This will accelerate the adoption of SuDS and enforce statutory requirements for the planning, design, construction and maintenance of assets.

With SuDS and water quality at the heart of the new government initiatives, designers will be relieved to learn that with ADS StormTech , there is a storm water attenuation system that has water quality as an integral part of its design.
