New SuDS guide for flood engineers

Polypipe suds crop

Drainage products manufacturer Aco and the ICE have teamed up to produce a new set of tools for engineers working on sustainable drainage systems (SuDS).

The set of eight detailed ICE/Aco SuDS route maps was produced by ICE’s SuDS Task Group, following a survey of over 400 professionals which showed a clear need. They are professionally reviewed by 19 reviewers throughout all of the UK nations.

ICE SuDS task group chair David Smoker explains: “We’ve covered the main phases of SuDS delivery, from pre-planning through to adoption and maintenance, developed clear route maps for each phase to show the main tasks involved, and added live links to resources such as regulations, guidelines and case studies.”

Smoker hopes that “though the regulatory context for SuDS is not yet ideal in any of the devolved regions”, the route maps will enable more professionals to deliver SuDS.

● The downloadable pdf of the route maps is available on the ICE website or here.
