Owning SUDS in Scotland: the public drainage authority’s view

C. Aukerman, C. Jefferies, A. Duffy, D. Buchan

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) have been required by regulations in Scotland since 2007. The ownership of these assets has been a controversial issue partly due to legislative allocation of responsibilities for surface water and partly to different organisations not being prepared to own non-traditional assets. This paper discusses the process that Scottish Water put in place to overcome these barriers.
