ABSTRACT
The article focuses on some of the successful applications of sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) in Scotland. As proof of its success, a Scottish law has been implemented stating that all new developments should use SUDS or equivalent, to attenuate and treat surface water runoff. One success story involving SUDS in Scotland is the large-scale new development called Dunfermline Eastern Expansion, where six ponds and a wetland form the regional SUDS facilities, and with two exceptions, every site also has a detention basin.
