Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) includes above-ground assets such as wetlands, swales, and bio-retention basins to filter pollutants. Water is filtered to remove heavy metals, sediment, phosphorous, nitrogen, oil and grease. It is essential to install manufactured devices upstream from WSUDs to help reduce maintenance costs and extend their life.
Gross Pollutant traps (GPTs) remove plastic litter, rubbish and organic matter.
Water can also be filtered to remove heavy metals, sediment, phosphorous, nitrogen, oil and grease. These filtration systems capture pollutants and help us build a sustainable future.
For flood mitigation, large underground detention tanks & chambers can be installed which slow the flow of water. Stormwater harvesting can also be incorporated with the use of large retainment tanks, which hold the water for re-use.
