This Technical Report provides information for the development of specifications and procedures aimed at limiting adverse environmental impacts caused by fire-water run-off (see References  to ). The information is applicable to commercial facilities, such as warehouses, chemical storage facilities, refineries, process plants which handle and/or store products with a potential pollution potency, and vehicles for the transport of such substances. It is only applicable to land-based operations (i.e. not oil tankers or off-shore oil drilling platforms), and to wildland fires.
As such, this Technical Report provides a summary of current potential approaches for controlling and eliminating adverse environmental impacts caused by fire-fighting water run-off. It offers relevant information for the design and sizing of water basins to limit the dispersion of contaminated water into the environment at large (see References  to ). This Technical Report is divided into three main parts: a description of the hazards of fire run-off, environmental damage limitation and details concerning the possible design of water basins.
