Sustainable surface water management with geocellular underground tanks

Surface water management begins with an assessment of the hydrological demands of the project. The rainfall and topography of the landscape then determines the surface water solution.

As the available land in cities becomes increasingly developed, large surface areas are being covered with impermeable pavements. This leads to an increase in volume of water runoff on the stormwater system and to receiving waterways which ultimately impacts the environment. Government departments regulate stormwater quality and detention. Policies and guidelines are put into place supporting innovative solutions to conserve, retain and reuse our most valuable water resource.

This webinar will provide a detailed account of some of the important issues to consider when specifying geo-cellular systems for stormwater detention, retention and infiltration covering key topics such as:

Highlights: :

    • Engineered solutions v. soft WSUD techniques

    • Legislation

    • System design and versatility

    • Strength

    • Hydraulics

    • Logistics and site considerations

    • Access and ease of maintenance
