Heavy rainfall events caused by climate change
A challenge for all of humanity.

Climate change sets us a challenge to react effectively with innovative solutions to new environmental conditions. With its integrated approach, ACO provides systems for professional surface water drainage, efficient cleaning, and the controlled discharge or reuse of water.
Offering comprehensive design tools and services, ACO Surface Water Management also assists with the design, construction and sustainable operation of modern drainage systems. askACO

Four guiding questions accompany us in the search for sustainable drainage solutions:

Your questions – our answer: The ACO system chain.
An integrated approach for professional surface water drainage, efficient cleaning, and the controlled discharge or reuse of water.

How does surface water management and
water protection begin?

The surface water or liquids to be treated run off the surface into the drainage system, quickly and as completely as possible. This part of the ACO system chain ensures protection, safety and convenience for the people, buildings and traffic routes in the direct surroundings

  •  Drainage channels
  •  Road and yard drains
  •  Gully tops
  •  Manhole covers

How to achieve the right water quality?

The surface water or collected liquids are treated by integrated physical, chemical or biological methods so that – as a minimum requirement – they can be fed into the public sewers. This part of the ACO system chain creates the basis for recycling and sustainable use.

  • Rainwater treatment

How to reduce surface runoff to a natural level?

Water storage, drainage barriers and throttles ensure that surface water or the liquids to be treated stay within the drainage system and can be carried in a controlled way. This part of the ACO system chain increases protection and safety for extreme requirements, e.g. in case of heavy rainfall, flooding or in handling hazardous liquids

  • Detention
  • Retention
  • Attenuation
  • Infiltration

How to control the discharge rate to the required level?

Pumps, lifting plants and pipe systems transfer the collected, treated and controlled water to downstream systems and cycle. This part of the ACO system chain brings the collected and treated water to downstream systems in a controlled way for further use or returns it to the natural water cycle.

  • Flow control systems
  • Pump shafts
