New infographic on SuDS

Spring 2015 heralds major changes in the UK for the delivery of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). Recognising this, CIRIA’s Susdrain project has launched a new infographic on SuDS that provides a simple overview of the drivers and benefits. The ‘Going with the flow’ infographic details some of the key objectives and outcomes from a sustainable drainage approach. This includes improvements to local flood risk management, water quality, landscape amenity, and biodiversity. 

The infographic is based on four case studies from both new build and retrofit examples, which demonstrate what can be achieved with early engagement and appropriate design. The case studies highlight how SuDS can manage local flood risk, enable savings in construction costs and deliver great places and spaces.
