A new law came into force in October 2008 which does not allow you run rain water from your newly installed driveway into the storm drains in the road. At St Albans Drives and Patios we understand the importance of installing good drainage when having a new driveway or patio. Based on the size of the area being drained we calculate your drainage requirements. This is based on estimated rainfall and we install drainage and grates suitable for the requirements. Rainwater collected by the drain has to discharge somewhere, most commonly into the surface water sewer system via a pipe union or a bottom outlet section.
We can also install soakaways where required, that allow surface water to be stored and gradually released back in to ground at a pace that the ground can handle instead of a sudden downpour from a storm.
