SUDS beat floods

Flood Alert in Aberdeenshire,
North East Scotland

Severe flooding conditions have hit many areas of the Aberdeenshire area due to unprecedented rainfall.

Our experts have been on-site at Greenbelt developments, where they have been closely monitoring the situation.

We are pleased to confirm our Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS), despite dealing with red alert event levels of water, are operating as designed.

As our pictures show, the SUDS are retaining excess water up to their capacity, then diverting it safely away from homes.

The levels of water in the surrounding areas and roads are beginning to fall as weather conditions improve.

Our teams will continue to monitor weather conditions and the operation of the SUDS, and are ready to take immediate action if required.

With thanks,
