Proposed features/bund wall
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
A bund is a secondary containment structure, for liquids which if spilt are likely to cause pollution or pose an environmental hazard.
The presence or absence of a bunding is important for fire emergencies and pollution incidents and is often a permanent feature.
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
Because the use of bund walls is to mitigate spill or firewater hazards.
