Abstract

The study was carried out to establish the extent to which source-control systems are being used in Scotland. An investigation into the level of knowledge of such systems was also initiated. Over 100 questionnaires were sent to organizations which have been involved in the development of surface-water drainage schemes, and the 43 responses were analysed.

Further work was then undertaken to establish the locations of source-control systems in use. The collated information was utilized and, with the help of the Scottish Environment Protection Agency consent files and correspondence with consultants, a database indicating the locations of sites, was compiled. Information was collected on approximately 79 examples of such systems, currently in use or proposed, in Eastern Scotland.
