Polystorm Infiltration/Soakaway Guide
pdf (2.05 MB)
Soakaway (or infiltration) is a water management technique that encourages surface water to be reabsorbed into groundwater systems through measured release, using a modular geocellular solution. It uses the natural infiltration properties of subsoil to reintroduce surface water at a rate that won’t saturate or flood surrounding land, an important function in a region where extreme storm events can inundate existing infrastructure.
In the Middle East, Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) solutions are leading the way in combating surface water run off and this is where Polypipe’s expertise comes in. Through our range of soakway solutions like the Polystorm geocellular system, we provide integrated water strategies in order to manage surface run off and reduce environmental degradation.
