Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)
What are SUDS?

SUDS, or Sustainable Urban* Drainage Systems are a sequence of water management practices(1) and facilities(2) designed to drain surface water in a manner that will provide a more sustainable approach than what has been the conventional practice of routing run-off through a pipe to a watercourse.

*The use of the word 'urban' is frequently omitted, but the meaning is still the same.
