A new approach to surface water management E


xpectations of the built environment are changing to meet sustainability targets and corporate social


responsibility values. Following ten years of research and development by Rockwool, Hydrorock Solutions has launched a new, innovative, sustainable drainage system consisting of Natural Aquifer Blocks in the UK. Effectively managing excess surface water to prevent flooding and drought, Natural Aquifer Blocks are made from natural stone wool, providing an enhanced, alternative natural water management system to burying plastics underground. In a recent project undertaken by South


Tyneside Council, Helen Langton, Senior Engineer from Lynas Engineers, quoted that "the Hydrorock system was specified to meet the sustainability, environmental and performance criteria whilst overcoming a challenging site installation". Similarly, Surrey County Council recently installed this new system, providing a plastic-free, no maintenance highway drainage solution.


The Hydrorock system stops large volumes


of water collecting in a single place, moving, storing and releasing water by infiltration, attenuation and irrigation. An increased surface area is achieved due to the system's modularity, and the capillary action allowing infiltration through the base providing an enhanced performance. As a true holistic SuDS solution, Natural


Aquifer Blocks relieve the additional load on nearby sewers and other existing infrastructure, improving soil water balance and integrity by keeping water within the confines of the site. This extremely flexible and adaptable modular system unlocks the potential to build on the most challenging of sites. Some of the many benefits of the Hydrorock system include a simple installation process, adaptability to any location and no maintenance. Following the sustainable ethos, the Natural Aquifer Blocks continue to be green beyond their lifetime; the used blocks can be recycled into Rockwool insulation material.


With Hydrorock Solutions set to change the way we manage surface water in the UK, Architects are embracing this new sustainable way of thinking. For more technical information, contact Hydrorock Solutions.
