The Atlantis Sports Field Drainage System is a unique stormwater infiltration and management system that allows play to continue even under prolonged wet weather conditions, while providing a solution for the treatment and purification of stormwater run-off from the field and surrounding sub catchment areas.
The system greatly reduces stormwater pollution, stops gross pollutants from being conveyed off-site and can provide a stormwater re-use system for irrigation of the playing surface and other field areas.
The system can be designed to provide instantaneous drainage without drying out the playing surface. The Atlantis Sports Field Drainage System ensures an optimum playing surface is maintained by creating an artificial aquifer consisting of the Atlantis Ecological Drainage Cell blanket style of drainage beneath.
In combination with the efficient porosity of Atlantis EcoSoils, excess water can efficiently flow vertically and then horizontally, well under the playing surface. The result is the elimination of water logging, erosion and soil deterioration.
The unique design of the Atlantis Drainage System creates a constant sub-surface aerobic water table in suspension known as a perched water table.
