The course takes attendees step by step through the basis and requirements of current criteria and methods for delivering compliant surface water management systems. It provides them with an understanding of the inputs, outputs and parameters required in commonly used tools and models (including the uksuds.com tools) – and how to assess whether the right or sufficient information has been presented with drainage submissions. This one-day course assumes that attendees are already familiar with the concept of SuDS and are aware of the requirements of the non-statutory SuDS standards (Defra, 2015). The focus is on the requirements for developments in England, but Welsh, Scottish and Northern Ireland requirements are be touched upon where appropriate.
The course content is spread over one day with discussion and debate sessions, allowing attendees time to review and critique sample drainage submissions, become familiar with runoff and storage estimation tools, and understand and evaluate the suitability of key scheme characteristics.
However, it may also be of value to other SuDS practitioners, regulators and other environmental consultants.
At the end of the course, the participants will be aware of and understand the key criteria and requirements of current standards, and understand how to design and approve surface water management systems that:

“Really enjoyed the course ... Confirmed lots of different applications. Was worried that one day would not be sufficient, one day was perfect."
"Course very well structured to provide useful guidance for using uksuds.com and providing sufficient background info to ensure correct use.
Understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic issues necessary to undertake a robust review of flood risk model outputs and surface water drainage design submissions for planning.
