Green landscaping & water retention

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) for water management

SUDS replicate the natural drainage of a site to remove excess rainwater and reduce the risk of flooding, especially useful in urban areas.

The increase in run-off in urban areas can be managed by the use of Sustainable Drainage Systems at multiple points within the drainage cycle.

OUR SOLUTION

In urban water management, Sustainable Drainage Systems replicate as closely as possible the natural drainage of a site, for instance with green landscaping and the installation of water retention ponds.

Green landscaping

  • Protecting new or existing landscaping to manage water flow.
  • Use Enkamat on river banks to prevent erosion.
  • Enka-Tex nonwovens help with filtration of water added through a riverbank.
Green landscaping

Detention basins hold water until the soil is able to absorb it. Use Enkamat and Enka-Tex for erosion prevention and filtration.

Functions
  • Separation.
  • Filtration.
  • Erosion control.
