Rainwater that falls on any hard surface must be discharged into the ground or the mains drainage system. This poses the risk of environmental contamination from hydrocarbons. Such surfaces include petrol forecourts, car parks, roadways, vehicle maintenance areas. Contamination from these areas can have enormous impact on the environment.
Pollution prevention is a critical part of drainage systems and statutory regulations are in force to control the discharge of hydrocarbons, with severe penalties imposed for non-compliance.
Premier Tech Aqua offers a proven range of separator and alarm systems for installation on surface water drainage systems and are designed to prevent these hydrocarbons (e.g. diesel, petrol, engine oil) from mixing with surface water and entering the environment.
All of our stormwater management products ensure the upmost in safety and are fully complient with Environment agency Guidelines. The type of separator used is determined by the severity of a possible contamination event.
