Flow regulation

As towns and cities expand and develop, the impervious surfaces within them increase. This can result in greater stormwater runoff. Stormwater is one of the major causes of urban flooding. Older towns and cities are unable to re-lay their stormwater pipes and therefore need to maximise the use of their existing infrastructure and find new ways to manage storm water runoff.

Prevent flooding by regulating the stormwater

Stormwater harvesting as well as the regulation of the flow of stormwater into existing stormwater infrastructures has become necessary to avoid flooding. In a bid to reduce the risk of overloading the stormwater system, regulations are being put in place indicating the maximum rate of discharge allowed from properties, thereby minimising the risk of stormwater flooding.

By attenuating stormwater and lowering the rate of runoff, flooding or overloading of existing stormwater systems can be reduced.

Choose Wapro’s WaReg to control stormwater flow 

The flow of stormwater can be controlled using a WaReg. WaReg allows cities to effectively manage their stormwater system by setting the flow regulator to regulate the flow into their stormwater system. It then becomes the responsibility of the developer/property owner to attenuate their stormwater and only release at pre-development levels, which decreases theCity’s need to increase pipe capacity.
