We explored different options to avoid overloading tree roots, including the use of light weight headwalls and orifice plates, instead of more disruptive pre-cast concrete chambers housing flow control devices.
Thanks to effective communication with all stakeholders and using our expertise knowledge in 3D modelling and drainage design, we were ultimately able to identify a solution that removed the need to use the existing pond for attenuation purposes by relocating the required storage volume into two detention basins located in the vicinity of the Woodland. The only works required consisted of increasing the size of the basins to accommodate the additional volume. This resulted in only a slightly larger land take, leaving the Ancient Woodland completely undisturbed.
