SuDS Scheme - Keighley West Yorkshire

SuDS Scheme - Keighley West Yorkshire

GreenBlue Urban Ltd

The water then transferred through a clean stone layer to an underdrain to a storm water drain. This method of conveyance gives an acceptable level of pollutant removal and slows the water down so that the existing drainage network can cope with the increasingly violent storm events.
