Masonary Bunds for Oil Storage Tanks

Graham Marshall - Thursday, January 12, 2012

Another post today about the safety issues surrounding above-ground oil storage tanks.

Today I'm linking to a UK Environment Agency Preventing Pollution Guide (PPG) that addresses the requirements for construction of masonary bunds around tanks.

This PPG provides useful information for owners of tanks with dimentions less than 3.5 metres wide by 1.2 metres in height when constucting masonary spill bunds. 

These types of bunds and tanks are frequently found in domestic and small to medium size business locations.
