  • Developments in the Field of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems(SUDS) in Ireland and Internationally



    Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems - How do We respond to A Change in Emphasis?

    Presented by: Diarmuid Cahalane

    Venue: Engineers Ireland, Clyde Road, Dublin 4

    Time & Date: 6.30 pm Monday 23rd February 2015



    Sustainable Urban Drainage Schemes (SUDS) have been an integral part of new development for well over a decade. SUDS objectives have evolved over time from simply addressing surface water quantity to include water quality and biodiversity/amenity benefits. However, SUDS practitioners, planning authorities and policy makers have been slow to respond to this expanding role for SUDS in new development. There is an increasing requirement for integration of SUDS into the overall development scheme and for SUDS which are selected with specific reference to the characteristics of a site.

    SUDS retrofitting has proved beneficial in existing urban areas in North America and Australia and is now being promoted by the UK Water Authorities. The potential for improvements in combined surface water overflow compliance through SUDS retrofitting is significant and will be discussed.

    The speaker will review the evolution of SUDS, including recent international developments. He will consider the policy framework in Ireland and the need for a coherent national policy on SUDS. He will advise on available guidance documents for designers of SUDS.  He will comment on the validity of concerns which hamper the more widespread adoption of above ground SUDS and he will touch on SUDS innovations and public information campaigns such as "Green Streets" in the UK and "10,000 Rain Gardens" in Melbourne Australia.



    Diarmuid Cahalane is a Chartered Member of CIWEM and Engineers Ireland. He is an Associate with T.J. O'Connor & Associates. He has been responsible for the appraisal of suitable SuDS solutions and in the detailed design of such schemes ranging in size from small housing schemes to large commercial, mixed use and the very large multi-unit residential developments.
