Case Study: SuDS Solutions
Project: Linnet Rise Flood Alleviation Scheme, Kidderminster
Client: NMCNomenca; Severn Trent Water
Application: Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS)
Polypipe SuDS solution enhanced flood protection and ensured minimal intrusion into residents’ usable space.
The lack of capacity in the existing highway drainage network placed many properties in the residential area of Linnet Rise at risk of flooding. Polypipe supplied a complete prefabricated solution using Polystorm geocellular tanks, together with pipework, manholes and catchpits all manufactured off-site. The final design saw the installation of two Polystorm geocellular tanks at a depth of 3.2 metres, under two resident owned car parks on the Linnet Rise site, providing 366m3 and 479m3 of storage respectively. The solution was retrofitted to the existing area with minimal disruption to local residents to provide long-lasting flood protection.
