Today, specially designed, compact water containment system options make compliance with EPA laws simple. Easy to store, portable, and affordable systems make chemical and waste water collection and removal a snap.
The new Vacu-Boom functions as either a complete or runoff water containment system. The Vacu-Boom consists of a hollow, flexible tube used in conjunction with a portable wet vacuum recovery unit. The tube is placed on the down slope side of hard surfaces to form a collection dam, or used to completely encircle the wash or containment area. Liquids are simultaneously captured and extracted, but not absorbed into the Vacu-Boom's materials. Simply rinse off the Vacu-Boom after usage.
Wash mats are another effective, easy to assemble water containment system. These are vinyl, rectangular mats with specially designed foam barriers on all sides. Vehicles or equipment are driven directly onto the surface of the mat for cleaning. Waste water is contained within the walls of the mat and pumped out into a tank for removal and proper treatment and disposal.
Both the Vacu-Boom and wash mat water containment systems allow little excuse for non-compliance with EPA regulations.
