This month, we checked out a variety of auto businesses in the Speedway wellfield. We conducted our usual site-walk throughs looking for where waste and other liquids are stored as well as checking the conditions of floors and pavement.
We were thrilled to find some best management practices (BMPs) at one location. Here are some real life examples of how these practices can be implemented at your business!
Spill kits are important to collect any spills of chemicals before they begin to infiltrate into the ground and our groundwater. There are many commercially available options, but it is also easy to make your own. Check out this informative flyer!

Secondary containment is important to put around all chemical storage because it prevents spills escaping if a storage container was to break, leak, or be damaged. Generally, it is best to design secondary containment to be able to handle 110% of the volume of the item it is protecting. Here is an example of a secondary containment pallet being used in Speedway!
Please contact us if you are interested in setting up any BMPs at your business to protect our drinking water!
