WAVIN Large Diameter Attenuation Tanks by Wavin, Built To Withstand Extreme Rainfall

Despite public spending cuts, the government’s Communities Secretary, Eric Pickles is proposing the biggest housebuilding programme in generations, in an effort to get local authorities building the hundreds of thousands of new homes the UK needs.

Large scale housebuilding programmes will again raise the spectre of flooding and the imperative need to capture and store stormwater before releasing it when the risk of flooding has passed. As winter approaches and the UK is faced with the three wettest months of the year, thoughts will again turn to the important role played by stormwater attenuation tanks and in particular the very large bespoke tanks required on sizable infrastructure projects.

Wavin, the leading supplier of water management, plumbing and drainage systems, has developed the Intesio Stormwater Management range to cope with every aspect of stormwater from capturing the falling rain to discharging the stored water when required.

An important, but entirely hidden part of many integrated systems is Wavin’s large diameter pipe, used to create very large volume attenuation tanks. These custom-built tanks can be made any shape and size to suit any particular or peculiar site requirements. The robust nature of the product and the ease with which the tanks can be accessed for cleaning and maintenance as required, has ensured they are adoptable by all of the UK water companies.

Wavin offer a bespoke design service, to get the best results from the large diameter (up to 3500mm dia) high quality HDPE, structured wall pipe. The tanks can be supplied pre-fabricated, complete with integral access shafts, chambers, elbows, tees, oversize manholes (complying with Sewers for Adoption) and bulkheads. A specialist on-site joint welding service is also available.

The systems are fast and economical to install, which has always made them popular with developers and installers alike. The tanks are highly corrosion and abrasion resistant, and are notable for their tolerance of ground movement. The large diameter pipe is BBA (up to 900mm) and WRC approved and quality assured to BS EN ISO 9000:2008.

When you couple a pressing need for housebuilding on an epic scale with a greater risk of flooding from shorter more dramatic rainfall events thanks to our changing climate, you begin to understand the increasing interest shown in large diameter pipe attenuation tanks.
