Stormwater Detention Systems

Stormwater detention systems are used to prevent flooding by temporarily holding stormwater runoff and providing the flexibility to release it in a slower, controlled way. By enabling a consistent runoff rate, detention systems help to manage stormwater surge. Stormwater detention is gradually becoming an important feature in both residential and commercial projects.

SVC’s patented MC2 multi-cell unit was designed in the 1990s in collaboration with Swinburne University. It is a low maintenance, ‘set and forget’ solution that controls the flow and discharge of stormwater from a site, preventing flooding of existing drainage systems during heavy storms.

The MC2 unit is available in various sizes to suit pipe diameters of 150mm and 225mm.


SVC’s dual-chamber Variable Control Pit provides a flexible, cost-effective method to control stormwater outflow from increased density developments.
