Many unplanned events could happen on your site that would have a disastrous effect on the environment. Among these events are spillages, fire and flooding.
Industrial or commercial facilities that use or store hazardous or polluting substances need to take steps to ensure they do not escape into the environment. Pollution containment is critical for sites operating under the Control of Major Accidents and Hazards (COMAH) 2015 or Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations (EPR) 2010. It should also be integral to any compliant Environmental Management System (EMS) – or for those companies working to ISO 14001.
The UK’s central industry guidance document CIRIA 736 ‘Containment Systems for the Prevention of Pollution’ sets out clear guidance on the steps to take for water pollution containment.
County Drains are specialists in pollution and environmental control, and we are ISO 14001 certified. We offer expert advice and services to companies looking to set up or implement their environmental management policies.
In the event of a chemical or solvent spillage, you must ensure the spillage does not enter the surface water drainage system or groundwater. We offer a spill mapping service which runs a computer simulation of your drainage system to show the effect of spillage on your site.
We can then advise on adapting your drainage system to cope, with the addition of containment valves, storage tanks, sensors and alarms, to ensure the safe containment of any spillage. We also offer advice on spillage response planning.
In the event of a fire at your site, you are responsible for the safe disposal of the firewater – the run-off from fighting the fire. Firewater contains hazardous contaminants which can pollute rivers and groundwater.
If you are working towards CIRIA 736 compliance our spill mapping service can simulate the route firewater would take on your site, and we can advise on firewater containment strategies and equipment, including automatic valves, penstocks and containment tanks.
Your site may also be susceptible to flooding during prolonged periods of rain, and it is your responsibility to ensure that flooding does not cause contained waste, solvents or oil to enter the surface water drainage system.
We offer a flood risk assessment service and can advise on any remedial measures you may need to take.
If spill containment and CIRIA 736 compliance is currently a consideration for you, please give us a call on 01530 510572, and we’ll be happy to discuss our solutions with you.
