Sustainable drainage systems that collect and transport rainwater runoff, are one of the most significant developments in storm water drainage design in recent years. The legislative framework, practical requirements and innovative methods of implementing SUDS is of prime importance for planners, developers and the community as a whole.

Our scientists, engineers and policy specialists, offer advice on a range of methods tailored to suit the unique challenges each drainage project brings, providing an integrated solution that ensures our drainage systems are sustainable and maintain the design objectives of water retention and runoff quality. Royal HaskoningDHV has been involved in several flagship SuDS projects which have influenced current best practice and design techniques for sustainable urban drainage systems in the UK.
