Reedbed Design and Build

Yes Reedbed Flood Alleviation Systems

Yes-Reedbeds for Flood Alleviation, can help protect investment in houses and homes built on flood plains.

Open Water Lagoons

  • attract people, raising issues of safety
  • allow the sun to form algae & bacterial blooms
  • attract water birds, that pollute the waters, turning them green from their nutrients

Reed Lagoons

  • avoid all of the problems above
  • provide dynamic working systems
  • provide valuable natural habitat
  • can lead to environmental awards
  • can help gain planning for the whole development

Yes-Reedbeds are typically half the price of alternative and substitute systems. Yes Reed Flood Alleviation Lagoons are half the price of normal Yes Reedbeds, and can be lower with the economy of scale.

The economies of scale mean for a 50 to 150 house development, price per house may be £350. But for developments of 200 - 400 or more, the price is more like £300 per house.

Yes-Reedbeds know what to do, how to do it, and why we are doing it.

We produce Quality and Standards on time and without hassle

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)

Sustainable Urban Drainage has been a well known concept for many years. Reedbed Filtration has been successfully used to treat surface water and waste water from housing developments.

The sheer versatility of Reedbeds can be seen in the following excerpt from one of our presentations. Normally sewage is directed to one central point where treatment takes place. But with Reedbeds they can be placed right where the problem occurs. This way Reedbeds can be placed in locations around the village, to maximize treatment at the point where the problem occurs, and to reduce engineering costs of creating one single point of treatment.

The Gildersome Project

Here in Gildersome, a new build housing development directs surface water through a Reedbed, into a pond system, to overflow into the passing ditch system.

So we can have development and progress, working together with natural systems, and still it is economical. Indeed, in directing the surface water in this way, there is less pressure on the sewage system. As a result less instances of untreated waste water from domestic and industrial customers will be discharged into rivers and streams.
