RAINWATER INFILTRATION

Infiltration systems that let water seep into the soil.

Letting rainwater infiltrate means we leave it to seep into the soil again, one way or the other. By doing so, we do, in fact, no more than restoring a disrupted natural pattern, because usually, when rain falls, it seeps back into the soil, replenishing groundwater reserves. But densely built-up areas leave rainwater less and less the chance to do this. Which means that letting rainwater infiltrate can be a valuable contribution to restoring our groundwater reserves and combatting drying out.

A good infiltration system can be made up of underground plastic crates that catch the rainwater temporarily and slowly let it seep into the ground again.

Our individual infiltration systems can be connected to:

  • Your rainwater tank overflow
  • Rainwater from paved surfaces (terraces), collected in drainage channels, floor drains, etc.
  • Potentially purified wastewater (overflow of individual water purification)
