  • A cost comparison of traditional drainage and SUDS in Scotland 

    Duffy, A.; Jefferies, Christopher; Blackwood, David J.; Waddell, G.; Shanks, G.; Watkins, A. (IWA Publishing, 2008)
    The Dunfermline Eastern Expansion (DEX) is a 350 ha mixed development which commenced in 1996. Downstream water quality and flooding issues necessitated a holistic approach to drainage planning and the site has become a ...
  • Evidence of traffic-related pollutant control in soil-based Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) 

    Napier, F.; Jefferies, Christopher; Heal, K. V.; Fogg, P.; Arcy, B. J. D.; Clarke, R. (IWA Publishing, 2009)
    SUDS are being increasingly employed to control highway runoff and have the potential to protect groundwater and surface water quality by minimising the risks of both point and diffuse sources of pollution. While these ...
  • Evidence of traffic-related pollutant control in soil-based Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) 

    Napier, F.; Jefferies, Christopher; Heal, K. V.; Fogg, P.; D'Arcy, B. J.; Clarke, R. (IAHR/IWA, 2008-08)
    SUDS are being increasingly employed to control highway runoff and have the potential to protect groundwater and surface water quality by minimising the risks of both point and diffuse sources of pollution. While these ...
  • Medium-term performance and maintenance of SUDS: a case-study of Hopwood Park Motorway Service Area, UK 

    Heal, K. V.; Bray, R.; Willingale, S. A. J.; Briers, M.; Napier, F.; Jefferies, Christopher; Fogg, P. (IWA Publishing, 2009)
    One of the main barriers to implementing SUDS is concern about performance and maintenance costs since there are few well-documented case-studies. This paper summarizes studies conducted between 2000 and 2008 of the ...

  • Modelling of flow through gravel-filled trenches 

    Schluter, W.; Jefferies, Christopher; Zhang, Xiaoxian (Taylor & Francis, 2007-12)
    Today's standardized computer models for simulating flow through in-ground sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) require substantial monitoring data in order to allow for a realistic representation of system behaviour, ...
  • Selecting SUDS in the Valencia Region of Spain 

    Casal-Campos, A.; Jefferies, Christopher; Momparler, S. Perales (IWA Publishing, 2012)
    This paper reports on a study of the implementation of sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) in two Spanish towns (Xàtiva and Benaguasil) as part of the EU LIFE+ Project AQUAVAL, which has been conceived to introduce ...
  • Smart SUDS: recognising the multiple-benefit potential of sustainable surface water management systems 

    Jose, Roshni; Wade, Rebecca; Jefferies, Christopher (IWA Publishing, 2014-12-08)
    How can we make sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) smart? SUDS help us to manage surface water runoff from urban environments but they are capable of delivering much more. This paper looks beyond the water quantity ...
  • The social impacts of stormwater management techniques 

    Apostolaki, Stella; Jefferies, Christopher; Wild, T. (IWA Publishing, 2006)
    This paper presents the results of research into the social impacts of stormwater management techniques applied within urban environments. The main aim of the study was to compare public and professional attitudes of ...
  • Source control pollution in sustainable drainage: final report 

    Jefferies, Christopher; Napier, F. (Scotland and Northern Ireland Forum for Environmental Research (SNIFFER), 2008-02)
    Background Source control in sustainable drainage systems (SUDS) terminology refers to the application of the technology close to where incident rainfall lands. It can provide the opportunity for the degradation of ...
