Liquid Waste – Bund Testing

  1. Carry out a visual assessment and provide an engineer’s report.
  2. Hydrostatic test of bunds and underground tanks
  3. Bund rehabilitation

A bund area is a containment structure constructed around or under tank and vessels which holds liquids that are hazardous and will protect the environment should a leak or spill occur

Ageing tank bunds that may be defective should be tested annually also your EPA discharge license will require you to test Bunds every three years

Tank and Drain Services regularly carry out electronic hydrotesting of bund areas

The leading standard for bund integrity testing is EN1610

This complies with environmental protection agency 010607-22-RP-001 B guidance note on storage and transfer of materials for scheduled activities

Following those tests that fail, we can provide an assessment and recommendations for any rehabilitation required

Depending on the nature of the material in the tanks we will recommend the appropriate sealant.
