How Do Attenuation Tanks Work
There is a need to manage land at a risk of flooding. Stormwater Attenuation is something that should be on your radar to help manage excess water and remove the risk of flooding to built-up areas from stormwater events.
What is an Attenuation Tank?
An Attenuation Tank is essentially a large container/detention tank acting as a buffer to store excess rainwater and remove the risk of flooding of a residential area in a controlled way. Excess rainwater detained in a stormwater tank is then released at a controlled rate by a hydrobrake.
Why use an Attenuation Tank?
There are many benefits of using a precast concrete stormwater attenuation tank. With a minimum design life of 60 years and also 100+ & a zero maintenance profile it’s a solution that developers and water companies can hang their hat on. Used widely on residential housing schemes it is also popular on large commercial developments and even International airports.
