Tips for Choosing a Spill Containment Berm

When Do You Need a Spill Containment Berm?

Federal secondary containment regulations require that locations have a means to collect any hazardous liquid leaks or spills to prevent them from entering the environment. Indoor facilities (with drums, IBC totes, and smaller tanks) often use spill decks or spill pallets for spill control.

Whereas oil spill containment berms are generally used for drums, larger equipment, large tanks and tankers in outdoor locations, to comply with secondary containment regulations. Most berms are used on construction sites, oil fields, or for short term secondary containment in facilities. Containment berms help you comply with SPCC and EPA container storage regulation 40 CRF 264.175.

How Big of a Containment Berm Do I Need?

The container(s) or equipment must fit inside the oil spill containment berm. Secondly, regulation 40 CRF 264.175 require you to be able to “contain 10% of the volume of the containers, or the volume of the largest container, whichever is greater.” A simple example is if you have two 55-gallon drums, the total gallons is 110. You would need to have secondary containment for 55 gallons since the largest container has 55 gallons (55 gallons is larger than 10% of the two containers). The thinking behind this is that it is unlikely both containers would leak at the same time.

If containers are stored outside and are uncovered you have to also consider sump capacity for the elements (rain or snow).

These calculations are provided only as an example. Different materials and unique circumstances could require different additional containment. Always consult with your local EPA.

Spill Berm Options & Protection Accessories

When choosing your spill containment berm, consider the following options and accessories:

  • Material - spill containment berms are generally made in various thicknesses of PVC fabric. Specialized materials are also available for different types of chemicals, extreme hot or cold temperatures and other environmental conditions. 
  • Sizes - Berms are available in just about any size to accommodate everything from drums to tanker trucks. Custom sizes are no problem. Contact us to discuss your needs.
  • Ground Mat - To protect your investment, you can order an optional ground mat for your berm. These mats are placed on the ground, under the spill berm, as an additional layer of protection for the bottom of the berm. If you are placing the berm on dirt or gravel, it is a good idea to purchase a ground mat to prevent rocks or sticks from working through the floor of the spill berm. If the containment berm is being used on concrete or asphalt generally a ground mat is not needed.
  • Track Mat - A track mat is heavy rubber material that is placed on the top side of the floor of the berm. If you are driving vehicles or equipment in and out the spill containment berm on a regular basis, it is a good investment to purchase this option to protect the floor of the berm from wear and tear due to tire friction.

Additional products to have on hand along with your berm as backup are spill kits, drain protector covers, drain plugs and berm dikes.
