Commercial Water Management
Elimination of rainwater discharge to sewers from roofing and impervious areas – reducing risk of flooding and business disruption
Commercial water management problems
Sustainable and efficient water management in urban areas is a hot topic, especially with climate change causing more and heavier rainfall.
Commercial areas often have large spaces which have been paved and built upon. These impervious surface areas impede the efficient drainage of rainwater during heavy downpours and results in large puddles causing damage and access issues.
From this, local councils are looking for solutions to prevent flooding in streets, offices and public spaces. Truly sustainable water management systems are needed to help offer a solution to manage this excess water and relieve sewer and water treatment systems. Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks are the answer to sustainably managing onsite water.
Due to the flexibility and installation process of the Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks, the system is ideal for situations which require minimal disruption as well as retrofit projects and projects which have restricted spaces. The blocks can accommodate existing infrastructure and immovable obstacles, going around corners and over/under and around pipes as required. In essence, the blocks can be installed anywhere a mini JCB can dig!
The Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks are able to absorb 94% of their volume, and when installed horizontally provide excellent drainage. Vertical installation promotes buffering and the gradual discharge of water into the surrounding soil, partly due to the filter cloth wrapping that acts as a membrane. This reduces water discharge, supplements the groundwater level in a natural way and relieves sewers.
