For your company to be ISO 14001 compliant, you must be prepared and able to respond to an emergency appropriately, to prevent or mitigate environmental impacts. It is good practice, and advised by the Environmental Agency, to have a site drainage plan in place and to have labelled all your drains.
Knowledge of all drainage systems on your site is fundamental to preventing pollution and avoiding the potential for hefty fines and clean-up costs in the case of an accident.
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.
We can provide you with a site drainage plan using our state-of-the-art CCTV drain cameras and sonar tracing equipment. We will map and identify foul water and surface water drains, as well as additional items that require identification, such as penstocks or oil interceptors.
You should check your drainage plans before any new building work is carried out to ensure connections are made to the right drainage system. It’s important to update the drainage plan to make sure that any alterations, additions or amendments to the drainage system are shown.
It is essential that every drain cover, drainage grill or gully on your site is identified on the ground as being connected to foul, surface, effluent or combined drains. Without this knowledge, it is impossible to know which drain is which – this increases the chances of pollution as wastewater can be mistakenly poured down or connected to a storm drain. This, however, is not an excuse. Wrongly connected effluents can cause severe pollution, which is expensive and time-consuming to trace, so it is imperative to make sure that everything is connected correctly.
Traditionally, drains and drain covers are marked with paint. The drawback of this system is your whole site’s drains will need remarking every 2-3 years.
Instead, we use self-adhesive, weather-proof drain labels. They are highly durable with a UV and abrasion resistant coating and are covered for defects for 12 years, but can stay in place significantly longer. Over their lifetime they are much more cost-effective than repeatedly painting and repainting.
