Deep sumps are designed to store sewage, grit, grease, silt and other debris which cannot be immediately routed into main gravity-fed waste water channels and sewers. The sumps are normally located at the lowest point on a site and are gravity fed. The contents are electrically pumped into or above the gravity line where the waste runs to septic facilities or main sewers from where it is transported in the normal manner to the water treatment works.
These facilities require regular upkeep and maintenance to operate efficiently.
RSC have the expertise to clean the tank floor, loosen and remove the hardened and encrusted material from the walls and associated pipework and organise the removal and disposal of the entire contents.
This service includes a full Risk Assessment to address the hazards associated with:
- Working in confined spaces
- Exposure to harmful/toxic solids, liquids and vapours
- The associated risks of potential inhalation and ingestion
The ensuing risk-mitigating recommendations typically address training, PPE and the production of safe working method statements. RSC Group staff are fully trained and equipped to carry out the tasks in full compliance with the appropriate Duty of Care legislation.
