The Benefits of Buried Infiltration Tanks

Buried infiltration tanks avoid saturation of the sewer networks

Buried Infiltration tanks can be located below roads, parking lots, service stations, logistic platforms or other landscaped areas. In urban and suburban areas, the land value is very high and thus opting for a buried system is a real advantage for owners.

Buried infiltration tanks aim at storing temporarily the runoff water below the ground. Runoff water arrives through inlets and pipes connected to the other stormwater conveyances. If there are heavy rainfalls, the overflow goes to an adjacent drainage system like the municipal storm sewer. Municipalities may face the saturation of the networks, building buried infiltration tanks is one of the best stormwater management practice.
