They are a member-based research and information organisation who publish reports and technical papers covering building and civil engineering as well as transport and utilities infrastructure. Depth is the most important factor to consider in most cases.


Spreadsheet for calculating required volume of attenuation tank. Around 4 tests can be carried out simultaneously over the course of a day on site. BRE issued an updated version inthe spreadsheet is still based on version Note: Want access to British Standards?

CIRIA – The SUDS Manual

Please note that soak-away for foul drainage is carried out c6977 to a different method. This is because the EA do not accept soak-away drainage on contaminated site, and carrying out c6697 tests themselves may wash contaminate off site on in to aquifers.

Why not share this website with your friends and colleagues: In order to carry out a BRE Soak-Away Test you will need to excavate some trial holes, and fill then with water and watch how quickly in soaks away.

The calculations will now provide you with an attenuation volume. This piece of software is a must c97 Consultancies undertaking small urban Flood Risk Assessments. Damian your spreadsheets are invaluable!

Where they differ is that whilst BRE uses field data to derive an infiltration rate and works out a soak away volume based on this rate, CIRIA C is based more on limiting flows from site, without considering where they go. Excel spreadsheets on steroids!

The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has likely been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no cirai being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS.

The more grass proportionately the smaller you ciia feature will be. Once you have your infiltration data, the calculations are carried out in accordance with BRE This is calculated based on a range of annual flow rate probabilities. On very steep sites it can be difficult to get water to the holes, and it may need to be pumped from the nearest available flat area. A water supply is not required as we can normally arrange this even at short notice.
