Water infrastructure system supplier, SDS has acquired Waterscan’s water recycling division which covers design, supply, installation and maintenance of commercial greywater and rainwater recycling systems.
SDS said it will take on immediate responsibility for Waterscan’s current and planned rainwater recycling projects. Water recycling manager at Waterscan, Kevin Reed, has transferred to SDS in the same role.
SDS managing director, Patrick Cullen, said: “We have to change the way we think about sustainable drainage systems and treat rainwater first and foremost as a resource, not as a problem to be managed or mitigated. Climate change will lead to more intense storms and flooding in future. So, our priority should be to reuse collected rainwater and prevent it from entering an already-overloaded sewer network.”
