All commercial sites which generate oily water run-off as a by-product of their operations are required to have oily water pits installed to prevent the oils from entering council sewer lines. Oily water pits (also called oily water separators) usually sit underneath the work area where oily water is running. Because oil floats, it is held in a compartment by the “adjustable weir baffles”, while cleaner water is able to flow out of the oily water pit.
Lee’s Environmental removes oily water from almost all oily water generating sites including:
Most commercial oily water generating sites require 3 to 6 monthly pumpout/removal of their oily water pits or oily water separators, however this will depend on the type of business and local council enforcement laws.
