Landfill Restoration Drainage Success

Following the success of our landfill restoration surface water drainage design at Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire we have now secured a further two sites at Knapton and Asenby, North Yorkshire to deliver similar scheme designs.

Working closely with the Environment Agency and local Internal Drainage Boards we have developed a Sustainable Drainage approach using naturalistic open channels, swales and infiltration basins. 

The open channels are lined with erosion protection matting, filled with soil and seeded with a water tolerant mix of 20% native wildflowers and 80% slow growing grasses.
