Why You Need A Surface Water Drainage System
Surface water drainage systems provide a natural approach to managing surface water to help lower your sewerage bill and reduce the risk of flooding.
If surface water drains from your property into a public sewer, then the sewerage company will remove and process the water and charge you accordingly for the service.
During heavy rainfall our sewers can become overloaded, resulting in flooding becoming more common over recent years. To counteract the problem, the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 has restricted developers’ rights to connect new builds to public sewers and instead encourages the use of sustainable drainage systems.
