Drainage Impact Assessment

Sanderson Associates are able to provide Drainage Impact Assessments as part of your planning application to accompany a Flood Risk Assessment or as a stand alone document.

This assessment provides clients with all the base data required to make an informed decision regarding the drainage strategy for the site and any constraints likely to be applied by the governing bodies with regard to drainage of a site or development.

The Drainage Impact Assessment can include:

  • Assessment of existing drainage infrastructure to establish accurate current rates of surface water and foul run off from a site. (This is a critical service we provide as this rate of discharge forms the basis of the proposed drainage design and attenuation required on site)
  • Assessing capacity and suitability of existing drainage systems to accommodate additional flows
  • Mitigation measures for construction and detailed design should the development be in a groundwater source protection zone
  • Calculation of existing Greenfield or Agricultural run off rates
  • Preliminary assessment of storm water attenuation requirements and volumes
  • Determination of foul and surface water run off generated by new developments
  • Consultation service to sewerage undertaker to establish acceptable rates of discharge and points of outfall for both foul and surface water
  • The preliminary design and viability of sustainable drainage techniques, including soakaways, swales, ponds, attenuation tanks, on line and off line piped storage

Sanderson Associates have produced many Drainage Impact Assessments for all types of development including residential, commercial and retail developments of all sizes. We provide this service for sites throughout the UK.
