SUDS as usual? A transition to public ownership in Scotland

Alison Duffy, Doug Buchan, David Winter

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Sustainable drainage systems are soft drainage assets which deliver green and blue infrastructure in urban areas. They have been implemented in Scotland since the 1990s, but there has been a lack of clarity about who should own and operate them. ALISON DUFFY, DOUG BUCHAN and DAVID WINTER describe the work carried out to build the skills and procedures needed so that the public water utility Scottish Water can take on the long-term ownership and management of these assets.
