WASH RACKS HELP MEET NEW COMPLIANCE
Virtually every municipality has enacted some level of clean water regulations, typically in the form of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). Most SWPPP’s state that municipal, industrial and commercial facilities, including construction activities, military bases and shipping ports, that produce and need to dispose of wash water fall under the regulation of the Clean Water Act. Wash water comes in the form of contaminated stormwater that can potentially pollute water sources.
SWPPP place the burden on operators to increase there awareness of and compliance regulations:
- Identification of Potential Sources of Pollution
- Preventing Pollution from Happening
- Training and Implementation
Oil, mud, grease, heavy metals, soaps and detergents and other chemicals and particulate matter are all substances that build up on industrial vehicles, aircraft, trucks and worksites. It is important to have a system in place that cleans equipment and disposes of wash water and debris properly to prevent these substances from becoming pollutants. The best wash technology is specifically designed to eliminate storm water pollution. This equipment helps operators stay compliant with federal and local environmental regulations, which are becoming increasingly stringent and detailed.
