Aquaten – Engineered water attenuation solutions to reduce flash flooding and support urban drainage systems

Nearly all cities in the world have one thing in common; roads, roofs and an abundance of buildings that leave very little natural permeable surfaces. This creates problems for drainage systems in periods of sustained or heavy rain.

Legislation is being introduced across the world to promote water attenuation and reduce the impact of urban flooding. Most SuDs solutions are reactionary, waiting to manage the water once it hits the ground.

Aquaten doesn’t wait for flooding. Aquaten cuts rain off at the roof.
