Stormwater Management

Stormwater Flow Control

FM Environmental’s storm & floodwater management products provide sustainable and cost-effective solutions to everyday stormwater problems. In conjunction with its global manufacturing partners FM Environmental now offers stormwater options to suit most sizes of infrastructure projects or commercial/housing developments.

Stormwater attenuation
Infiltration blocks and tunnels provide stormwater storage in rural or urban areas whether it is a car park, a football ground or a residential housing development. While the infiltration blocks provide extreme load-bearing capability the tunnels equally provide space-saving storage capacity close to the surface. Both options are easy to install, low in maintenance and provide long-lasting storage capability.
