Interceptor and Separator Cleaning

Interceptors play an essential part in ensuring that any contaminants such as oils and fuels, silt and dirt are separated from your sites storm water.

Regular interceptor and separator emptying and cleaning is vital to keeping any site drainage running efficiently, and the Environment Agency recommends that forecourt interceptors are maintained every six months in accordance with its Pollution Prevention Guideline (PPG3).

If left without regular servicing, collected sediment can build up or cause blockages leading to troublesome water build-up in places where rain water is unable to drain away fast enough.  Additionally if left un-separated surface water can damage the environment and pollute rivers, streams, and groundwater.
