The Future Of Drainage
Global climate change is causing more frequent extreme weather events such as droughts and heavy rainfall and must be counteracted by more complex and sophisticated drainage concepts.
ACO achieves this with intelligent system solutions; which have a dual purpose: protecting people from water, and water from people. Every ACO product within the ACO system chain helps control the water as it passes along the ground to ensure that it can be ecologically and economically reused viably.
Surface water or liquids are collected from the surface quickly and completely by the drainage system. This part of the ACO system chain guarantees protection, safety and convenience for people, buildings and vehicles in the immediate vicinity.
Collected liquids are treated using integrated physical, chemical or biological processes that ensure they can be discharged into the public sewers according to minimum requirements. This part of the ACO system chain creates the conditions for recycling and sustainable use.
Containers, barriers and valves ensure that liquids stay within the drainage system where they can be properly controlled. This part of the ACO system chain conserves water or enhances protection and safety for extreme situations: e.g. droughts, heavy rain, flooding or handling hazardous liquids.
Products are needed to release the collected, cleaned and controlled water into the downstream systems. This part of the ACO system chain brings the collected, cleaned and controlled water to these urban interfaces for further treatment, re-use or release.
