Case Study - Water Treatment for Tunnel Construction

During the construction of a railway tunnel, seepage water was pumped through the descenders (safety tunnel access) and brought outside to be discharged into the natural environment. Beforehand, a water treatment at 90 m³/h was necessary to remove suspended solids and traces of hydrocarbons.

Case Study - Effluent Solution for Construction Site

This customer reached out to United Rentals for an effluent solution for one of their constructions sites. Due to the site drainage and outfall not being connected to the sewer network, the client needed to safely remove the effluent from the drainage system and store it above ground to allow for road tankers to empty the tank and dispose of the waste off-site.
