Stormwater Attenuation

Carlow Concrete’s Stormwater Attenuation Tank is a modular precast attenuation/detention tank which is supplied to Clients to primarily satisfy their mandatory Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDS) requirements.

To combat flooding both Irish & UK building authorities stipulate a restriction on the rate of storm water flow from the developed site to that of the original ‘greenfield’ condition, and in many cases the most economical means of achieving this is to place a flow control device on the site outlet and to detain excess run off in subsurface storage. The most cost effective means of providing such storage is a Carlow Concrete Stormwater Attenuation Tank.

The Carlow Tank is available in depths from 0.6m to 4.0m and can be configured to exactly suit Client requirements.

Our in-house design team prepare design calculations, drawings and specifications in compliance with Eurocode or British Standard requirements, all of which is protected by our extensive professional indemnity insurance cover.
