Scottish Surface water storage volume estimation tool
The surface water storage volume estimation tool provides both greenfield flow rate estimates for setting limiting discharge rates as well as surface water storage attenuation volume estimates for use in initial drainage design. The tool is designed to be used with a minimum of information by users who need not be drainage engineers.
How to use the tool
To use the Surface water storage volume estimation, enter the postcode where your site is located and then click on the map to extract the site coordinates and related hydrological characteristics. The tool lets you enter your own values so that you can compare them with the map values. Once all fields are completed you can save your data to generate a pdf.
This version of the surface water storage volume estimation tool is for users for whom the map functions on the UK SuDS site do not work correctly.
