This can have a severe effect in a watercourse where flash floods can occur downstream where the volume of water entering the system can be extremely high due to a cumulative effect of development upstream.
To address this problem, the drainage systems of towns, cities and developments have been surveyed and a policy of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) has been developed to counteract the problems being encountered.
The philosophy of sustainable drainage systems or SUDS is to mimic as closely as possible the natural drainage from a site before development, and to treat run-off to remove pollutants. A sustainable drainage system provides several benefits over conventional systems. Correctly designed, installed and maintained, SUDS can improve the management of surface water run-off for most developments.
SUDS addresses issues of the quantity and quality of the water run-off from sites.
