Techno-economic evaluation of SuDS performance at the full scale

Started: October 2015

Supervisors: Dr Ana Mijic; Dr Christian Onof

Industry Partner: Thames Water

Description of Research

Sustainable urban water management solutions for future urban flood resilience often include Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS), but the extent of data at the full-scale on their performance and maintenance in UK is limited. To fill this gap, Thames Water are constructing SuDS measures in 3 streets in London as part of a larger flood alleviation project called Counters Creek. This project will develop modelling and monitoring approaches for SuDS’ full scale performance assessment and undertake research to develop a methodology for SuDS evaluation tool to inform Thames Water future SuDS programme.
