All measures are taken to collect all runoff likely to be polluted in a claim, including waters used during a fire, so that they are recovered or treated to prevent any pollution of the soil, and water from the public network of storm water, streams or the natural environment. This containment can be achieved by either internal or external to covered storage cells. Internal devices are prohibited when hazardous materials are stored.
In case of external covered filing containment device, channeled material is collected, either gravity or through autonomous lift systems, and then converge on this specific capacity. Case of autonomous lift systems, the operator is able to justify at any instant a maintenance and maintenance of these devices. Regular tests are also conducted on such equipment.
In the event of internal confinement to the covered filing, flow vents are closed by default. In case of external containment, flow vents from these devices are equipped with an automatic filling device to ensure this confinement when likely to be polluted waters are likely. Any way is implemented to prevent the spread of fire by these flows.
The waters of extinction so confined in a fire are analyzed to determine if treatment is necessary prior to discharge.
Necessary for this containment volume is determined, especially in the light of the study of dangers, according to the rapid intervention and the means of intervention as well as the nature of stored materials, absorption capacity, and mentioned in the prefectoral Decree.

In addition, for external storage, runoff water (meteoric waters or of human origin for example) is returned to the water treatment station, when the establishment has a. The prefect may authorize different provisions in the case of demonstration by the operator to meet this obligation technical impossibility. In the absence of final treatment before discharge to the environment, the operator sets up a mechanical cleaning of wastewater treatment based on screening.
This article is not immediately applicable to existing facilities. The operator resets to the prefect, within a period of 12 months after the issuance of this order, a techno-economic study on ways and means to achieve the goals set by this article. The prefectoral decree can then predict a gradual realization of the work approach, if the study has put in front of the techniques available at an economically acceptable cost. Otherwise, at least a screening of the waters of extinction is implemented by the operator.
