Stages of Managing Surface Water

Stormwater must be managed effectively in urban and rural environments, to mitigate flood risk. ACO have an extensive range of products to manage surface water within almost any type of built environment. These range from channel drainage products that collect and convey water, treatment units that clean water, attenuation tanks to hold water and flow controls that throttle the release of water into the watercourse or sewer system.

ACO have developed their own unique mode – Collect, Clean, Hold and Release – to reflect this range of solutions, which embraces the entire surface water management cycle, from the point where rain lands right through to where it re-enters the natural water environment.


Surface water management system design can often be a complex task. Success in combining products and processes requires a thorough understanding of how these different elements work together.

The ACO Design Services Team is able to work closely with you through the entire process to ensure accurate and cost-effective product selection is made, and correct installation and maintenance is achieved.

Services we offer (free and without obligation):
  • Whole system design, from collection to the attenuation of surface water
