Waterscan Presents the Future of Water Reuse and Flooding Solution

Waterscan has unveiled the latest technology for water reuse and flood resilience. Intellistorm uniquely combines rainwater harvesting, attenuation and intelligent data gathering into one system that once deployed, it is expected to drastically reduce site water consumption and discharge to drain.

The technology enables a site to maximise water reuse and reduce discharge to drain by intelligently storing and using collected rainwater for non-potable applications such as toilet flushing, irrigation, cooling systems and vehicle washing. Highly secure and customisable to control both the quality of water for discharge, and water for reuse, the possible applications for this system are extensive.

“Designed to enhance flood resilience while reducing water consumption, this patented, attitude- changing technology is a major step forward in alleviating issues surrounding the widespread uptake of water reuse systems,” said Barry Millar, Operations Director at Waterscan, whose team developed the technology. “The concept was arrived at to mitigate the need for separate rainwater harvesting and attenuation systems. By combining two systems and using intelligent data, we can now offer developers considerable cost savings during construction, clients ongoing cost savings through water reuse, and wider environmental and social benefits by boosting flood resilience.”

A significant flood risk in urban areas is represented by the overloading of drainage infrastructure and current sustainable urban drainage recommendations set limits on the discharge of water from developments to assist in mitigating this impact but more action is needed. Intellistorm has been designed in line with best practice sustainable drainage systems (SUDS) principles and ensures full compliance with stringent local planning and discharge requirements. It actively empties attenuation in accordance with weather forecast data, providing only sufficient space to receive incoming rainwater.

Intellistorm requires no additional civil excavation or equipment footprint and it reduced the cost of integrating water reuse to a new build facility by approximately £100,000. Further savings are achieved as a result of using 40% less build materials and onsite labour costs.
