Secondary Containment Systems Protect Against Costly Environmental Cleanup

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – December 31, 2012 – Secondary containment systems are put in place to protect the environment from spills, leaks or overfill from storage tanks. Secondary containment systems are a valuable level of protection for many industries including agricultural, petroleum, chemicals and construction.

Surface Solutions, an Indianapolis based company, manufactures and installs seamless epoxy and urethane based flooring systems which create an additional protective barrier to minimize the risk of caustic materials from entering nearby groundwater. These secondary containment flooring systems are designed to comply with EPA and OSHA regulations pertaining to fuel, chemicals and other liquid contaminants.

Most drinkable water is stored in underground aquifers. Contamination from industrial pollutants, sewage and garbage can have a devastating effect on water locked beneath the surface. Thirty-one million homes in the United States get their drinking water from private wells. Secondary containment systems will provide protection from caustic chemicals and acids.

Most concern over groundwater contamination is caused by pollution resulting from human activities. Human groundwater contamination can be related to waste disposal -private sewage disposal systems, land disposal of solid waste, wastewater, land spreading of sludge, brine disposal from the petroleum industry, disposal of liquid wastes, animal feedlot wastes, or not directly related to waste disposal.
