SuDS Proprietary Treatment Devices – Key Issues to Consider

Chapter 26, the 2015 SuDS Manual (CIRIA publication C753, Ref 1) presents the Simple Index Approach (SIA) and Mitigation Indices for discharges to surface and groundwater (Tables 26.3 and 26.4). This useful Guidance provides for the adoption of SuDS Proprietary Treatment Devices (PTD), especially DiBT certified devices (Ref 2). Green Infrastructure SuDS components are rightly […]

Road Drain Filter for streets with high levels of pollution

Hydro Filter Drain

The Hydro Filter Drains are a multi process treatment unit for use in SuDS/WSUD systems treatment trains.  It is able to both mechanically filter and then chemically bind pollutants like PAHs, hydrocarbons, heavy metals like Cd, Zn, Cu, Pb as well as phosphate and ammonium. The retained pollutants then can be disposed of easily, legally […]
