Saving Our Environment
for Future Generations
The method of treatment depends
on the concentration, the type of
contaminants in question and the
location of the discharge. The key
to success for collecting, separating
and treating oily wastewater on-site is
properly configuring the best available
technologies to optimize performance
and limit operational costs of
the system.
A well-designed drainage system
equipped with a Highland Corella
®
Oil/Water Separator or Sand/Oil
Interceptor as the primary step,
frequently combined with an Advanced
Hydrocarbon Filtration System (AHFS)
secondary step, can economically
treat most wastewater flows to achieve
nearly all discharge limitations and
water quality standards for petroleum
compounds.
The public's increasing interest in
the conservation of our nation's
water resources has directly affected
industries worldwide. Pressure to
control harmful oil spills and discharges
from industrial facilities has resulted
in more stringent regulations, causing
industries to face costly penalties
for noncompliance.
Industrial facilities with oil storage and
handling activities commonly produce
wastewater containing oil, grease,
floating debris and settleable solids.
Highland's extensive line of wastewater
treatment systems helps these
facilities comply with the EPA's NPDES
regulations for the proper treatment
and discharge of contaminated storm
water runoff. These systems also
satisfy SPCC requirements for spill
control and secondary containment.
