To provide a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) solution that harvests and buffers the rainwater and runoff, before infiltrating within the confines of the site, our Hydrorock Aquifer Water Infiltration System was installed.
Each block is lifted into place and connected to the block behind with a simple push-fit connector. Once a whole width of blocks has been installed, back-filling can begin immediately – in this case with a gravel mesh and shingle, for extra load bearing, prior to the topsoil.
The ends of each module were then connected to the kerbside gullies with the middle block of three being connected to a breather vent. As the Hydrorock module fills with water, the air is expelled through these breather pipes and as the water is released into the soil, air is drawn back in.
Our project case studies are live, interactive documents and subject to regular updates, but if you need a printable version you can download our case studies and system datasheets in PDF format.
