Stormwater Attenuation: The construction industry’s answer to flooding

Stormwater Attenuation is becoming an area of greater interest with both the changing weather along with increasing land development in our towns and cities.

Stormwater Attenuation: Why do we need it?

With increasing rainfall and increasing land development along with further regulations – the management of stormwater is proving to be more and more difficult.  Retention of this excess rainfall is becoming key and a vital part in the planning of any new developments. Attenuation is the holding of water in tanks and then releasing it at a controlled rate avoid flooding the water system & surrounding areas such as a residential housing development.
