Procedure for Control of Ground & Surface Water Pollution - Interpreted from Best Practice Guidelines in PPG1, PPG5 & PPG6
Plant, wheel and boot washing:
- Should be carried out in a designated area of hard standing at least 10 metres from any surface waters.
- Run-off should be collected in a sump, with settled solids removed regularly and water recycled and reused where possible. Any excess water should be discharged to foul sewer with prior permission from your local sewerage provider or tankered off site for authorised disposal.
