Dealing with water

PDF Print

In an earlier part of this guide - Planning for paths - the principles of keeping water off the path have been discussed. We have assumed that you have read and understood these principles before looking for detailed specifications of drainage features.

This part of the guide provides detailed specifications for the drainage techniques used to intercept, divert or move surface water and ground water off, under, or away from a path. In addition, there is useful information on how to deal with existing drainage, designing drainage, and practical solutions for dealing with drainage problems on paths.
