Additional Info:

The Queen Mary's Walk scheme is part of Dwr Cymru Welsh Water's strategy to manage surface water entering the combined sewer network across the Llanelli area. It was constructed in the summer of 2013 and consists of the below SuDS components:

* Planted swale with 150mm of perforated pipe in the playing field adjacent to Queen Mary's Walk

* Planted basin on Regalia Terrace - this forms part of the highways drainage

Due to the previous land use in the area, it was not possible to infiltrate surface water into the ground, however, this scheme reduces flows through evapotranspiration and attenuates the remaining flows during storm events.
