We have existing data and information that can support decisions with regards to the suitability of the subsurface for the installation of soakaway-type systems. These include:
A national GIS map that provides data indicating the suitability of the subsurface for infiltration SuDS.
Please contact Dr Rachel Dearden for more information
Infiltration SuDS GeoReport. This site-specific report provides information on the potential for infiltration-to-the-ground to be used as a sustainable drainage technique, it considers the extent to which the subsurface may be suitable for infiltration, taking into account the potential for drainage and impacts to ground stability and water quality. The report answers the following seven questions:
In cases where multiple schemes are planned, where there are possible groundwater flooding impacts or where other water users may be affected, groundwater flow modelling may be appropriate.

We have developed a range of 3-D geological models that can provide a structural framework up to the regional-scale. These models may be applicable to planning and development activities with regards to the installation of infiltration-based SuDS schemes in new developments.
