The Environment Agency has identified that an increased uptake of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) would have positive environmental benefits, through improved water quality and resource, decreased flood risk and improved water based amenity features. Following the completion of work on the CIRIA guidance documents on SUDS (published in 2000), those involved in the project recognised the need to gather further information on SUDS and to disseminate it in order to further promote the uptake of SUDS.
