Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) use nature to better prepare and protect our cities from flood hazards, while also helping us to build more sustainable cities for our future.
In this video, we team up with Professor Harriet Bulkeley and SuDS engineer David Hurley to look at how nature-based solutions like SuDS can help control rainfall runoff, reduce urban flood risk, and make our cities greener and more sustainable.
The video covers:
• The threat of urban flooding
• How SuDS work
• Types of SuDS
• The benefits, limitations, and considerations of SuDS
