Where are you located?
Could be some land drains in there though especially if you don't have a lot of surface run off. You'll have you get the coat hangers out.No drainage at all! There used to be a building but that discharged straight onto the road which is no longer allowed.
We have no water run-off at all from the field during heavy rain so the top layer absorbs some water. Just not enough to build a soakaway.
I will see what the drainage department says on Tuesday otherwise I may have to get creative.
gonna need some sort of structure under that roof thoughSustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) are innovate ways of managing rainfall, particularly in urban areas. Bauder's Blue Roof System, BauderBLUE, succeeds at water attenuation and management through unique designs for each project. Contact us today.www.bauder.co.uk
Tis a good idea a system like that if designed into a building from scratch. Won't be cheap though.Good idea though imo if designed into a building from the start (not really relevant from a cost point of view here I would imagine, but food for thought whilst discussing the subject).

very ........ but will take some holding up ... all that water above your head ....... gonnawannabe a hell of a support structure .... to get me through the doorTis a good idea a system like that if designed into a building from scratch. Won't be cheap though.
Unfortunately according to SuDS our ground is unsuitable for a soakaway. I dug a trial pit and after 48 hours the water level only dropped by 2 inches. Currently I have a drainage design engineer looking at it and he thinks that a 10000 litre tank covers 95% of our requirement. For the 1 in a 100 year storm the tank will need a suitable overflow which will most likely be a pond or swale. The first foot of ground drains reasonable well so a shallow swale might just work.Have a read about suds ,you can build a underground storage tank with the plastic crate system.big hole lots of storage and it will eventually soakaway
