The Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland (SCOTS) and the Scottish Sustainable Drainage Systems Working Party (SUDSWP) have developed a whole life costing and whole life carbon tool for Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).

The tool, which supports the “SUDS for Roads” guidance manual, can be used as part of the SUDS selection criteria to provide evidence to support the appropriate selection of SUDS in different developments.

It will allow designers, developers and Local Authorities to cost and compare the construction and maintenance costs and carbon emissions of various SUDS for Roads schemes, and can be used by the industry free of charge. You can download the tool and user guidelines online.
