Surface Water Management

Surface water management involves dealing with potential flooding from sewers, drains and groundwater and the run-off from land, watercourses and ditches that can follow from heavy rainfall.


Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS), aim to manage surface water run-off to reduce flood risks whilst enhancing biodiversity and amenity benefits through an integrated approach using a variety of water management techniques. This is known as the SuDS Management Train - a staged design concept used to control volumes and quality of surface water run-off.

At Polypipe we have an established portfolio of engineered, easily maintainable, systems including geocellular and piping systems, designed for surface water management in both urban and rural applications.
