    Will Sustainable urban drainage systems “S-U-D-S” triggers sinkholes? What evidence do I have? to prove this fact?

    You all know that storms in the UK/ and around the world have increased in size/ and are more prolonged depositing vast amounts of water when it rains/ storm cloud burst can now last up to a couple of hours/ and continue to rain for day’s

    We have all witness the evidence that Sustainable urban drainage systems will trigger sinkholes/ but most people will not link the two together.
    I am taking about leaking or collapsed drainage pipes which course the ground around it to collapse/ and if left unchecked the collapse will form a sinkhole/ and the same is said for burst water mains if left unchecked.

    Take the evidence from above S-U-D-S soak-aways are designed to discharge thousands of litres of rainwater directly into the ground at a non-controlled rate into a small area, for example, some soak-aways are designed to take rainwater from one house/ but some take rain water from 15 plus houses/ and are sited with-in metres of the property’s they are servicing. some soakaways take rain water from new roads/ and are sited under the road or just off in a POS area

    So we now know that when a drainage pipe leaks the ground around it collapses so by discharging rain water into soakaways over time they will collapse/ and left unchecked this will lead to the forming of a large sinkhole, you may ask yourself why will the soakaways be left unchecked because that’s the design of the S-A to allow the rainwater to drain away into the ground at low level

    it is very hard to prove my theory at this point but the evidence above does point to building a sinkhole future for our next generation/ or maybe sooner?
