PROJECT TYPE
At a Thames-side fuel terminal the new lorry park of 10,000 sq metres on what had previously been open ground was producing a large amount of water run-off with subsequent localised flooding.

REQUIREMENT
Come up with a working answer without interrupting the working of the terminal.

METHOD
After a site survey a recommendation was made to install a new sump and pump the water 300m through new pipes to a discharge point.
Two sump pumps with a further interceptor were installed and discharge pipework linked both the sumps and interceptor, all buried and resurfaced.

Conclusion
Prior to completion of the project, there were huge puddles in the lorry park, causing potential risks for the operator. Following the completion of the work, it was great to see the parking area being kept dry by the new system. Dry feet and a happy workforce.
