A recycling centre

Has a bund wall around their plastics stockpile in case it catches alight. The fire water runoff is directed into sewerage rather than the local river system.

A petrochemical plant

Has a bund wall around their above ground fuel tanks in case it spills. The spill will go into a sewer rather than the lake adjacent
