Soakaways

Soakaways, which can be square or circular in shape, are made of rubble filled or lined with brickwork and pre-cast concrete. They can be linked together to drain large areas. Geocellular or modular units can replace the backfill and supporting structure.

Soakaways can be easily integrated into sites, but they offer little in the form of amenity and biodiversity value. They do however increase soil moisture content and recharge groundwater. This can help reduce the impact of low river flows.

Soakaways can be used to manage surface water directly at the source. They also serve as an alternative to draining it via a stream/sewer system. A very effective way to deal surface water, soakaways collect all surface run-off at one point and allow it settle in a controlled fashion into the earth/ground surrounding it.
