A containment berm is a heavy-duty containment unit, like a basin, that catches various leaks or overflow of hazardous fluid and dangerous materials.
Secondary containment is likely required if your facility houses hazardous materials and/or hazardous wastes. The rules regarding the regulation of hazardous materials can vary depending on OSHA or EPA standards, so consider your specific containment requirements and needs before choosing a berm. United Rentals offers secondary containment support here.
Federal requirements state that those storing hazardous waste must be able to contain either the volume of the largest container or 10% of the volume of the containers, whichever one is higher. After calculating which requirement fits your jobsite, you must find the sump capacity. To calculate sump capacity, use the formula (Length (L) x Width (W) x Height (H) x 7.48 = Sump Capacity (Gallons)), and then calculate the size of system you need based on your specific dimensions.
