Infiltration of rainwater from cycle track in ”permapipes” in Ikast-Brande

IBF” Permepipes and –manholes” is a new type of pipes and manholes for infiltration of rainwater. They are made of a special type of concrete that is porous, so they are strong enough to carry heavy traffic from a road and at the same time allowing rainwater to infiltrate through the pipe wall. The experience from Ikast-Brande municipality is that this system does not cost more, than the traditional infiltration through soakaways - it might even be cheaper. The bigger capacity of the sewer system also means, that the maintenance is more safe.
