Do you know your obligations as a property owner with regard to storm water disposal?

Building regulations require property owners to adequately dispose of stormwater from their buildings and prevent flooding.

To ensure water is dispersed into the ground evenly and quickly, you should consider the use of a soakaway since discharging stormwater into a drain will only be permitted if soakaways or other infiltration methods are not suitable.

Soakaways store the immediate stormwater run-off to allow infiltration into the soil. To be effective however, it’s important that soakaways are properly installed.
