Harvesting rainwater will reduce potable water demand and can reduce localised flooding incidents. For this reason it is recognised as part of source control within a SUDS solution for any development and is a core part, combined with water efficiency, of a sustainable water strategy.
This seminar introduces the concept of rainwater harvesting, identifies the opportunities and highlights the pitfalls to be aware of when specifying this type of technology. The seminar covers the different system types available in the UK, best practice in design, how to ensure the chosen system conforms to relevant legislation, and risk assessments of any site; this ensures that you provide your client with the optimum solution for their development. Participants determine, using actual case studies, whether rainwater would be the best solution for a particular situation, as well as learning simple sizing techniques and payback calculations.
