Many new UK housing estates are required to be built with Attenuation Ponds
/ Sustainable Drainage schemes as part of their development. These are to
control rain water runoff during storms and consist of a pond surrounded by
an embankment with a controlled release structure to slow down drainage of
the water to the river system.
The relevant features might be
. Low or normal water level of pond
. High water level or top of embankment
. Land use/vegetation between low/high water marks is water
. Structures for water input and output - often brickwork and filter
screens round a pipe.
Has anyone any experience of mapping and tagging such a structure?
Are there any examples of where this has been done?
