Sustainable Urban Drainage System
(SUDS) + Irrigation System
Maximum use of Rain water
The system combines rain water capture & storage with capillary irrigation. Its key feature is the possibility of storage water collected in the months with the higher values or rainfall, and use it for irrigation in the month’s with the higher water requirement, that in our latitude don’t match with the rainy ones.
Versatile Technology for Water SavingThis system can be used on its own or combined with other solutions that Swan Water Solutions (SWS) provide to create complete water cycle management solution for urban environments to be applied in sustainable urbanism.
System is based in a SUDS place above a waterproofing membrane of big surface (7.000 sq. m approx.) easy to install, developed exclusively for the system. Capillary columns are placed within the structure to connect geotextile layer which covers the system, that will distribute water creating a subsurface water table.
