Infiltration studies

The new rainwater decree adopted on 5 July 2013 establishes that when building/installing, re-building/re-installing or extending covered constructions/pavements, it is compulsory to observe the minimum requirements for the infiltration, buffering and discharge of unpolluted rainwater coming from pavements and covered constructions. One should, among others, verify whether the on-site rainwater can infiltrate into the soil. TEC nv can assist you with this by conducting an infiltration study. 

First, a preliminary study is conducted based on the characteristics of the environment, the geology, hydrology and hydrogeology and soil maps of the site. Next to this detailed preliminary study, a sufficient number of infiltration tests is carried out.

Based on the interpretation of the results of the infiltration tests, the on-site observations and the detailed preliminary study, the permeability of the soil is assessed and a motivated advice is given regarding the application of suited infiltration methods.
