It’s a time-consuming pain in the neck that costs you thousands of dollars every year in wasted labor. To make matters worse, you can’t simply dump the containment if there is an oily sheen on top of the stormwater because it pollutes our environment. To remove the oily water, many operators call a vac truck to pump, haul, and treat the water.
One Electric Utility operator recently told us that it costs them more than $100,000 per year in pump and haul costs to pump and maintain only seven containment structures. And they are planning to install seven more secondary containment structures in the next year. That will double their pump and haul costs to more than $200,000.
To make matters worse, the pandemic has devastated your available workforce and budgets. But, the rain keeps coming, and your secondary containment structures keep filling with stormwater putting you between a rock and a hard place.
Some operators had tried petroleum filter valves to remove oil sheen from containment water automatically. These valves are engineered to immediately shut off in case of a catastrophic petroleum spill inside containment. Unfortunately, these valves are costly, and they have a fatal flaw….they plug up with sediment long before oily sheen or a spill.
So, you’re at a point of decision. You can either keep going down the old path of least resistance. It’s the familiar one you’ve been travelling. Or you can take a new path. The old road will lead to the same results you’ve always gotten. Nothing will change.
But if you want something different to happen, you are going to have to do something different. Make a new choice, and pursue a new outcome.
