Spill Containment Berms
At Ready Containment, we know how confusing this be. Below we broke it down for you into the five main areas to consider under the EPA’s hazardous waste storage regulation 40 CFR 264.175, “The Secondary Containment Regulations.”
So, periodic inspection is required. Regularly (put it on your reminders) carefully inspect your containment system to ensure there is no damage. Note any damage could prevent the containment system from preforming the intended purpose: which is to provide secondary containment for the contain liquids in the case the primary storage fails. Additionally, be sure that the containment system is chemically compatible with whatever liquids could come into contact with the containment. Your containment system won’t be effective if the liquids it’s supposed to hold is incompatible
You can raise your containers on grates, decking or wood pallets (Remember anything in the secondary containment spill berm or pallet must be compatible and not cause a hazardous reaction). Furthermore, a drain can be installed in your spill berm, allowing for easy pumping or draining of the liquids out of the containment. The drain is especially helpful in outdoor applications to remove rainwater from the sump area. Remember, the sump capacity is the amount of liquid that can be contained in the secondary containment. Note spill berm capacities indicated by Ready Containment, LLC website are on a level surface, so please allow for any slope.
I.E., You are storing two 55-gallon drums. So, you have a total volume of 110 gallons.
10% of the total of all the containers (two 55-gallon drums) is 11 gallons. (10% of 110 gallons)
110% of the largest container stored is 60.5 gallons.
60.5 gallons is greater than 11 gallons, so you would need to have secondary containment for 60.5 gallons. Additionally, allow for any slope the secondary containment is sitting on.
Above are just the federal containment regulations. All States and municipalities have to follow these regulations, but many local authorities have stricter regulations. Always check with your state and local municipality on their secondary containment regulations. We recommend working with a qualified environment engineer
Yes, you also have to worry about rainwater! When your containment unit is outdoors, any rainwater, snowmelt, or other liquid that enters the sump of the secondary containment unit will take up capacity in the containment system. In the event of a spill, the additional fluid could cause an overflow of the containment.
Regulators are serious about this one. A simple solution is to put your containment system under shelter or a self-contained cover. Of course, with some larger systems, this may be impossible! If that’s your situation, consider the worst storm your area has had in the last 100 years (NOAA has data on this if your memory isn’t quite that good) and calculate that into your capacity requirements.
So, remember — inspect it and clean it up if needed. Any liquids in the sump reduce the sump capacity. You already know that is a big problem if you have a spill. The displaced volume could cause your system from overflowing in the event of a release from the primary container. Remember to routinely inspect your sump and containment system for cracks, leaks, and unwanted liquids. Any liquids will need to be cleaned up ASAP.
