David,I checked out the site photos on your web-site and i must say it looks like a fantastic development. I'm also interested in learning more about SUDS, especially the rills, waterfalls etc. They adds to the beauty of the place as well as being functional. Is SUDS a well-known system, or did you make it up as you went along. Any books/websites about it that you could recommend?

David, I would be most interested in the SUDS system. If you could copy me on the photographs, I would be very grateful. Our cohousing project has not yet begun to build and the information would be interesting.

It has many underground storage tanks, water falls, rills and porous parking area with oil and debris filtration. This has the effect to slow down the run off and mimic a green field site and avoid flooding and the need for over-sized municipal drains. Our water eventually arrives in a stream which is then re-cycled by the water authority. I can send you photos directly to your email. I am happy to take some more photos in the next few days showing more of the system.

I have lots of photos for a good slideshowbut what I do not have is some photos showing clever or innovative ways to deal with surface water runoff. If you have some you could share thatwouldbe most excellent.
