...save an enormous amount of space and excavation work as compared to pipe and gravel swales since they use 95 % of their volume to store water. Subsoil storage spaces for stormwater can be built in a very efficient and cost-saving way. Since Rigofill inspect features excellent load-bearing characteristics, the space above can be put to high-quality use, e.g. for parking areas.

Trust is good - safety is better
Swales are durable constructions for urban drainage, they must work reliably for decades. Durability and reliability are essential requirements. To this, the self-monitoring ordinances of the countries demand first-time and recurring visual inspections upon commissioning and during operation. The best way to check the state of a system using state-of-the-art technology is CCTV inspection. A completed detention/infiltration system can be checked excellently for final acceptance or later. This establishes safety for authorities, engineers, construction companies, customers, and operators.
