Flood Repair Scheme at School in Lincolnshire

Flood Repair Scheme at School in Lincolnshire

The Metro Rod Hull, Lincolnshire and Peterborough (HLP) team came to the rescue for a school in Lincolnshire, where the school playground and staff car park was constantly being flooded and couldn’t be used by the children, and indeed the staff on occasions. Metro Rod HLP are the commercial drainage experts with over 35 years experience working with schools, colleges, and universities to provide complete clean water in, waste water out solutions.

Given that the premises didn’t have a main surface water drainage option, the Metro Rod HLP team had to find the right sustainable solution for the school that would resolve their flooding problem, and would no longer create such disruption to school activities, and free the area for the much needed car parking for the staff.

Following a percolation test to determine the suitability and permeability of the underground substructure, the team were able to locate the ideal locations for several soak-away to be installed. Metro Rod HLP advised the school on the best drainage solution to meet their needs which included the installation of a soak-away crate system, as part of an efficient drainage solution, to effectively allow surface water to drain and reduce the risk of flooding in the future.


The school’s new drainage system was installed successfully and enabled playground activities to continue undisrupted, and provide the much needed car parking spaces back to the school staff.
