Firewater Retention Risk Assessment

Firewater Retention Risk Assessments are carried out in accordance with the (Draft) Guidance Note to Industry on the Requirements for Fire-Water Retention Facilities, published by the EPA and includes an evaluation of the risk a facility poses to the environment during a fire where water/chemicals used to extinguish a fire comes into contact with substances that have the potential to cause significant pollution.  The assessment is based on the Source - Pathway - Receptor risk assessment model and will determine the need or otherwise to retain contaminated water generated during fire fighting onsite pending authorised removal offsite or discharge to sewer.
