One way to help prevent flooding is to use active attenuation systems. Active attenuation systems reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that enters the sewer system, helping to prevent sewer overflows and flooding.
There are several different active attenuation systems available, but they all work in a similar way. They use a large underground tank to store stormwater runoff. The tank is connected to a monitoring system that predicts rainfall and adjusts the water level in the tank accordingly. This ensures that there is always enough space in the tank to store stormwater runoff, even during heavy rainfall.
In addition to preventing flooding, active attenuation systems can be used to collect rainwater for reuse, reducing water consumption and saving money on water bills.
Active attenuation can also reduce the number of combined sewer overflow discharges. Combined sewer overflows occur when a sewer system is overwhelmed by stormwater runoff. This can cause sewage to overflow into rivers and streams, which can pollute waterways and cause public health problems.
Active attenuation systems can help to reduce the number of combined sewer overflows by storing stormwater runoff until it can be safely released into the sewer system. This can help to protect waterways and public health.
If you are concerned about flooding or combined sewer overflows, you should consider installing an active attenuation system in your development or property.
Active attenuation systems are a smart investment that can help to protect your property and community from flooding and pollution and reduce potable water usage.
