SUDS-based drainage systems are developed as small, discrete units distributed across the land in order to maintain local hydrological characteristics close to pre-urbanization conditions, observing the following assumptions:

  • Do not increase the peak flow observed under natural conditions;
  • Reduction of flow rates, controlling the outflow of each unit;
  • Integrated planning of the units to control the volume of water produced, avoiding transferring the impacts to downstream;
  • Assist natural recharge of aquifers;
  • Reduction of pollutants concentration in stormwater washoff, using damping zones;
  • Add aesthetic value to the developed urban areas;

Facing a scenario of constant flooding resulting from the combination of more intense rains, limited and obstructed drainage systems and the high cost of large drainage networks, the concept of sustainable urban drainage arises, which are a set of devices and techniques developed with the objective of artificially replicating the paths that water travels through a natural hydrological cycle.

The SUDS concept has been replacing traditional drainage networks in many countries, where it is observed that the implementation of SUDS drastically reduces the size of traditional drainage systems and the financial investment involved in this stage of urban development projects.

The design of sustainable drainage systems follows a combination of different structural devices and non-structural measures in series, constituting a sequence of control alternatives that minimize urbanization impacts. Some of the techniques used are permeable floors, porous pavements, open vegetation channels, accumulation reservoirs and infiltration basins. These design characteristics seek to maintain the hydrological condition as close as possible to the initial environmental conditions.

To act with leadership in this area, AVIX has a partnership with the leading software developers in the field. With the use of these technologies we have fast methods for identification and analysis of surface water flow patterns, allowing the use of stormwater management as a premise of the design process, placing the control devices in strategic places which require smaller structural interventions.

Another great advantage is the possibility of visualizing a project based on proposed scenarios, demonstrating the performance of the system in relation to the network, revealing if there is enough space for rainwater control, if the design levels are correct and work effectively, generating reliable results.
