Either something is sustainable or it is NOT sustainable - which implies that it is damaging.
SUDS is a sustainable methodology for handling water in an urban environment.
The following links can be found by "googling" the acronym "SUDS":
- The main SUDS web site: susdrain.org
- Wikipedia: wikipedia.org
- British Geological Survey: bgs.ac.uk
- The UK Government's DEFRA: defra.gov.uk
- The Scottish Environment Protect Agency [SEPA]: sepa.org.uk
What these links show is that SUDS is a methodology which is very widely supported - and should thus NOT be ignored.
However, SUDS requires DESIGN, which requires Document Control. And that is why this page exists.
