This article discusses the plan of the British government to upgrade wastewater assets and introduce sustainable urban drainage schemes (Suds). It relates the government's plan to the launch of the draft National Policy Statement (NPS) for wastewater. It highlights the statement's aim at reducing the amount of wastewater produced. The article considers Suds as a cheaper or easier option than traditional wastewater management.
