NDS’ S5 Sustainable Stormwater Solution provides users with five benefits, listed above.

NDS, headquartered in Woodland Hills, Calif., released its S5 Sustainable Stormwater Solution, a scalable and flexible system engineered to meet today’s standards for on-site stormwater management. According to the company, the S5 offers up to 250 percent more detention volume than traditional gravel-only systems and qualifies for LEED credits.

S5 uses a number of NDS components, including catch basins, channel drains and Flo-Wells. Using these components aligns S5 with Low Impact Development regulatory policies. Additionally, the S5 uses runoff reduction and quality enhancement to management stormwater as close to the source as possible.

According to NDS, the S5 system delivers five key benefits for both commercial and residential projects, including improved conservation, better management, enhanced flexibility, superior mitigation and groundwater replenishment. The system conserves stormwater on-site through filtration, detention and infiltration; manages rainfall on-site by mimicking pre-developing hydrology; allows planners to adapt the system footprint to specific environmental conditions; filters debris and other suspended solids while limiting downstream erosion; and promotes subsurface recharge to balance groundwater withdrawal.

“NDS has a long history of producing high quality stormwater management products that are durable and designed for top performance,” said Sharon Vessels, director of marketing for NDS. “S5 Sustainable Stormwater Solutions reflects the best use of BMP’s, efficiencies and impact-reduction to help achieve stormwater needs.”

The S5 system is available now only though NDS. NDS is offering informational webinars on the S5 system on Sept. 10 and Oct. 23. To sign up for the webinars, click here.
