Stormwater Treatment


A Local Authority Takes Responsibility

Churchdown Parish Council diverts stormwater away from a water company sewer into a CPRE award winning wetland designed by Water21, featuring reedbeds, ponds and retention swale.

This saves the authority money both on mitigation costs as well as on water bills, while effectively controlling and treating stormwater and enhancing the local wildlife and recreational landscape. A simple, cost-effective win win solution.
