Hugh Pearl undertook work on a sustainable underground drainage system (SuDS) in London's Finsbury Park.
SuDS are systems designed to efficiently manage the drainage of surface water in the urban environment.
They aim to mimic 'natural' drainage by adopting techniques to deal with surface water run-off locally, through collection, storage, and cleaning before allowing it to be released slowly back into the environment. These also create more green spaces and natural habitats in the urban landscape.
