Hydrology is a vital environmental issue, a fact that makes drainage all the more important. Drainage systems can affect biodiversity, water quality, soil erosion and sedimentation among other things. The most common form of domestic and industrial drainage is surface runoff systems from roofs and roads. Effective use of these systems avoids property damage and flooding whilst retaining the ecological uses of water. Water sensitive design principles during development stages of industrial planning ensure that the resource management of water is prioritised, avoiding pollution and related problems.
