Are you concerned about storm water run-off? If you’re in charge of an industrial facility, a parking lot, or another type of vehicle storage area, you have to be concerned about oil and grease removal in storm water. Read on for an easy solution to your problem.
And a big problem it is. Oil and grease can cause some serious contamination of the ground water, and if your facility is traced as the source, you’ll be in trouble with the EPA.
Besides, it’s the right thing to do to protect the ground water from noxious substances.
