As our region gets drier, it becomes more at risk of flooding. Managing surface water run-off helps protect homes and the environment. One way you can help is by using Sustainable Drainage Systems, known as SuDS.
What are SuDS?
SuDS are an alternative way to manage surface water by reducing or delaying rainwater run off. They aim to mimic the way rainfall drains naturally rather than conventional piped methods, which cause problems such as flooding, pollution or damage to the environment.
We promote the use of SuDS as a sustainable and natural way of controlling surface water run-off.
