Concept and design of a rainwater and snowmelt drainage system from sealed areas for a waste processing plant.



The development of industry is more and more often limited by access to water or the possibility of free discharge of rainwater. Discharge limitations force the design of retention and delaying outflow from industrialized areas. Can rainwater also be used? Can an industrial area be friendly? Sometimes even a short downtime means huge losses: the sales market, customer confidence. What threat is the industrial plant prepared for and is the production safe in connection with the well-developed surroundings of the plant? Does the discharge of water from the nearby road junction significantly affect the drainage conditions of the area? The PreZero company commissioned us to analyze their drainage system in connection with the drainage conditions of the neighboring areas for the selective waste collection and processing plant in Srock Mały.




We took into account a number of local restrictions related to the existing infrastructure and land development, including the need to carry out archaeological research. Based on the concept discussed with the client, we developed a construction project for the system and obtained all permits.




Thanks to the use of mathematical modeling of the drainage system in the plant, retention was created in oversized collectors, which enabled a significant reduction in the amount of rainwater outflow to the receiver. The outflow of rainwater will be spread over time, thanks to which the receiver will be able to receive a given amount of rainwater from the sealed area. The outflow is adapted to the outflow conditions from the neighboring areas. The project enables further development of the plant.
