PAPA Pump powering storm management drainage systems
Help (old) Drainage systems meet the challenges of the 21st Century
Increasingly volatile weather patterns bring intense rainfall which causes flash floods. Yet Urban planners, Businesses and Councils have few options to mitigate these damaging problems as the usual answer of completely overhauling road, rail and urban infrastructure is too expensive in cost and carbon terms......
But how can that road junction which always floods be (cost effectively) protected?
So if we are stuck with our old drains - how can they become more dynamic to cope with such extreme weather?
Dont let peak flood loads cause damage; Using a PAPA Pump integrated into drainage systems could at least pump a high percentage of peak flows long distances away from at risk sites or to storage.
....use the flood water to replace mains water! The PAPA pump could move water being drained from urban areas such as large car parks to either be recycled for local sanitation use (so replacing valuable mains water) or horticultural use and even for attractive water features for the community.
Proven track record; 100's of PAPA Pumps are already operating in the tough agricultural sector, 24/7 in all weather conditions, pumping water from flooded watercourses and land drains - to far off farms or plantations. PAPA Pumps require minimal maintainence and use zero external power, so there are no health and safety issues related to electrical infrastructure when there is a flood.
One inch of rain falling on one square mile of built up area generates the same amount of water as 7 million toilet flushes....imagine if a few PAPA pumps could take some of this peak excess rain water and transport it some distance to where it can be stored or re-used.
Call to Action;
The PAPA pump team with 100's of water engineering years experience is designing systems to be installed in new property developments and MOST IMPORTANTLY, could be cost effectively retrofitted to existing drains.
Please get in touch if you are a Drainage Engineer, Irrigation Expert or National Infrastructure Manager.....
If you have a road junction which always floods causing dangerous driving or a new hill side property development.....Contact Us to see how a PAPA Pump could help move some of the water away from 'at risk' areas or to re-use & storage.
