  New JFC Stormwater Managment Solutions Brochure

Rainfall on a Greenfield site is either absorbed into the ground or runs off slowly to the nearest water course. When these sites are built upon, much of the area becomes impermeable increasing surface water runoff which is piped to the nearest outfall or storm drain. This increased run-off coupled with global climate changes have caused large scale flooding in many areas with conventional stormwater drainage systems being overloaded. Legislative Response The EPA is now implementing European water management legislation in Ireland. Local authorities now require a sustainable urban drainage system (SuDS) to be designed for all new developments minimising down stream flooding. SuDS are defined by the Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA) as “a sequence of management practices and control structures designed to drain surface water in a more sustainable fashion than some conventional techniques” >> More
