Stormwater attenuation is a solution used to control flooding and preventing pollutants from entering our waterways. In recent years severe storms and flooding have become commonplace, – with floodwaters threatening potential long-term damage to buildings and infrastructure.
Due to increased activity in the building sector over the last decade or so, Local Authorities have laid down strict guidelines for developers, who wish to construct new projects on existing non-developed land. No longer can collected stormwater be discharged openly into the existing drainage network. All developments of scale, now have to contain their stormwater on site and slowly release it to the drainage network, at a controlled rate. Attenuation Storage Tanks have been installed underground to collect this stormwater on development sites where space is limited.
McBreen Environmental are trained and experienced in confined space works – focusing on the maintenance of underground structures. As long as your soakaway installation has an inspection access point suitable for man entry, there should be no problem in inspecting and maintaining your crate system.
A drain camera will be used to record the condition of the soakaway / attenuation crate system post maintenance. Maintenance results will depend on installation and product installed. A report will be issued to the client shortly after the works have been completed.
