Flooding problems alleviated with retrofit SuDS scheme

A retrofit SuDS scheme based on Hydro International’s stormwater storage and infiltration technologies and Hydro-Brake Flow Controls has alleviated flooding problems caused by frequent heavy rainfall at a busy town car park in St Ives, Cornwall. And the scheme is highlighted as an exemplar of tackling surface water flood risk in a retrofit context in CIRIA’s new Guidance on Retrofitting to Manage Surface Water.
