How is eca or expanded clay aggregate used for water risk management?

Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA) is a versatile material that is very useful for water risk management when peak water flows cause drainage networks and other surface-based watercourses to overflow. This can result in flooding and damage to both agricultural areas and residential areas.

ECA can be used to create green roofs, drainage trenches, rainwater harvesting systems, and drainage systems. Due to its ability to drain and manage water levels, it can help reduce the peak water discharge into drains and other systems during heavy rains, prevent flooding, and also help prevent soil from settling, even under the most intense weather conditions.
