50% of the total capacity of the associated reservoirs.
This provision does not apply to wastewater treatment ponds.
For storage containers of lower unit capacity up to 250 liters, the retention capacity is at least equal to:
- In the case of flammable liquids, except lubricants, 50% of the total capacity of the drums;
- In the other case, 20% of the total capacity of the drums;
- In all cases, at least 800 liters or equal to the total capacity when the former is less than 800 liters.
Fixed tanks are equipped with level gauges and for underground storage filling limiters.
II. - The retention capacity is tight products it contains, and is resistant to physical and chemical action of the fluids. It is the same for its closure device which is kept closed.
The tightness of the (or) tank (s) partner (s) must be controlled at any time.
The products recovered in case of accident can not be discharged under conditions consistent with this Order or are disposed of as waste.
Tanks or containers of incompatible products are not associated with the same retention.
The storage of flammable liquids and other toxic or dangerous to the environment is permitted under the ground level in reservoirs in masonry pit, or similar (double-walled tanks with leak detection), and for flammable liquids under the conditions set out above.
III. - When storage is outdoors, retentions are emptied as soon as possible rainwater pouring it.
IV. - The floor of areas and local storage or handling of hazardous materials for man or likely to create a water or soil pollution is waterproof, A1 (non-combustible) and equipped so as to collect water washing and accidentally released material, so that the liquid can flow out of the area or premises.
The materials collected are preferably recovered and recycled, or if not possible, treated under Articles 35, 60, 61 and 62.
V. - all measures are taken to collect all the water flows and could be polluted during a disaster, including water used by fire, so that they are recovered or treated to prevent pollution of soil, sewers, watercourses or the natural environment. This confinement can be achieved by either internal or external to the installation. Internal devices are prohibited where hazardous materials are stored.
If external containment device installation, channeled material is collected, so gravity or through autonomous lifting systems and converge on that specific ability. If recourse to independent lift systems, the operator is able to prove at any time of an interview and a rigorous maintenance of these devices. Regular tests are also carried out on such equipment.
If internal containment, automatic devices for clogging of water drainage systems are installed so as to keep the waters on the site may be polluted. The flow openings are in default closed position. All means are in place to prevent the spread of fire by these flows.
The required volume of this confinement is determined as follows. The operator calculates the sum:
- The volume of extinguishing water required for the fight against fire, first;

- Volume of the product released by the fire, on the other hand;
- Water volume related to weather due to 10 liters per square meter of drainage surface to the containment structure when the confinement is external.
The extinguishing water collected are eliminated to the appropriate waste treatment systems.

All arrangements are made for the combustion gases are collected and removed by a smallest possible number of chimneys that lead to a height allowing a good dispersion of pollutants.
If taking into account technical and economic factors, the waste gas of several combustion appliances are or may be discharged through a common stack, combustion appliances and together constitute a group whose power, as defined in Article 2 is the sum of unit powers the devices that comprise it. This power is that used in the tables below to determine the height hp of the chimney (the altitude difference between the outlet to the open air and the average altitude ground at the point considered expressed in meters) associated with these devices.
If several chimneys are grouped in the same conduit, the height of the latter will be determined by reference to fuel giving the highest stack height.
The heights in parentheses is the minimum height of the chimneys associated with plants located in towns and areas mentioned in Article L. 222-4 of the Code of the environment.
A. - The case of plants with turbines or engines.
The height (or) fireplace (s) is determined by reference, in the following table, the total power of each appliance category (engines or turbines) taken separately.

In the case of an isolated combustion device or group of devices connected to the same fire and whose power is less than or equal to 2 MW, the minimum height of the opening in the open air of the chimney evacuation of combustion gases must be at least 3 meters the highest point of the roof surmounting the installation.
In the case of dual fuel engines, the stack height is increased by 20% from the height shown in the table above for the corresponding power (rounded to the next whole).
For turbines and engines, if the ejection speed of the combustion gases exceeds the value indicated in Article 520, the following formula can be used to determine the minimum chimney height hp without it being less than 3m:
hp = hA [1 - (V - 25) / (V - 5)]
where hA is the value indicated in the table above for the relevant power V and the actual speed ejection of combustion gases (in m / s).

C - Special provisions for boiler rooms.
Combustion appliances installed in the same boiler is one set within the meaning of the second paragraph of this article. The stack height is determined according to the indications of point B above.
If several chimneys are connected to boilers using the same fuel, it will calculate the height of the chimneys as if there was only one corresponding to an installation whose power is equal to the sum of the powers of the relevant combustion appliances .
In boilers with boilers and appliances under point A, the height (or) fireplace (s) (s) associated with the boilers is determined by reference to the total power of installed combustion equipment.
D - Consideration of obstacles.
If there is in the vicinity of natural or artificial obstacles to hamper the dispersion of combustion gases (obstacles seen the fire seen in a greater than 15 degrees in the horizontal plane), the height (or ) fireplace (s) should be determined as follows:
If the obstacle is located at a distance less than D of the axis of the chimney: Hi = hi + 5.
If the obstacle is located at a distance D 5 and D of the axis of the chimney: Hi = 5/4 (hi + 5) (1 - d / 5 D).
hi is the height of a point of the obstacle located at a distance d from the axis of the chimney. Hp is the largest of the Hi values, the height of the chimney should be higher or equal to the greater of Hp and hp values.
D is taken equal to 25 m if the power is less than 10 MWth and 40 m if the power is greater than or equal to 10 MWth.

To justify this accreditation, the laboratory must provide the operator with all the following documents before the sampling and measurements to justify it fulfills the provisions of this Annex: proof of accreditations on the operations of withdrawals (if available) and analysis of substances in the "waste water" matrix comprising a minimum accreditation number and the extract of the technical Annex of the substances; list of references in operations of hazardous substances in samples of industrial waste; performance table and quality assurance whether the substance is accredited or not and quantification limit that must be at or below the LOQ of Article 620; certificate provider pledging to respect the requirements of the Technical Annex.
2. Respect the quantification limits listed in section 620 for each substance.
The provider or operator may appeal to the subcontracting or realize itself levies operations. In any case, it will ensure compliance with requirements relating to removal operations as described below, in close consultation with the laboratory conducting the analyzes.
The analytical subcontracting is allowed. However, in case of subcontracting, the designated laboratory for these analyzes must meet the same skills criteria that the service provider is to say fulfill the two conditions mentioned in paragraph 2 above.
The provider will, in any case, solely responsible for the execution of services and commit to ensure compliance by its subcontractors all obligations of the Technical Annex.
When the sampling operations shall be conducted by the analysis provider, is solely responsible for the proper performance of the entire chain.
When sampling operations are carried out by the operator itself or its subcontractor, the operator is solely responsible for the execution of withdrawals of benefits and, therefore, responsible solidarity of the quality of results analysis.
Compliance with this specification and requirements requested can be controlled by an organization mandated by the state services.
All the raw data must be retained by the laboratory for at least three years.
Debit transactions The operations of sampling and sampling should be based on standards or guidelines in force, which means to date of compliance:
- NF EN ISO 5667-3 "Water Quality. - Sampling. - Part 3: Guidelines for the preservation and handling of water samples ";
- FD T 90-523-2 guide "Water Quality. - Sampling Guide for monitoring water quality in the environment. - Sampling of waste water. "

- Monitoring compliance of the measuring element (threshold, flume, venturi, spillway ...) vis-à-vis the normative prescriptions and manufacturers;
- A flowmeter for controlling the operation up by a comparative measurement carried out by means of another meter.
For systems with flow supported:
- A compliance monitoring installation vis-à-vis the normative prescriptions and manufacturers;
- A control operation of the switch by comparative measurement exerted on site (other flowmeter gauging ...) or by a check on a test bench in an accredited laboratory.
Metrological testing will take place before the start of the first measurement campaign, or on the occasion of the first measure, before being renewed on an annual basis.
2.4. Continuous sampling over 24 hours at a controlled temperature

This type of sampling requires specific equipment to establish a weighted sample in the flow.
The materials for the realization of an automated sampling based on the flow or volume sold are:
- Monoflacons either fixed or portable samplers, constituting a single means sample over the entire period;
- Multiflacons either fixed or portable samplers, constituting several samples (usually 4, 6, 12 or 24) during the period. If this type of sampler is implemented, samples should be homogenized to form the average sample before transfer into vials for analysis.
The samplers will refrigerate the samples during the period.
In case it proves impossible to make a proportional sample of the effluent flow, the sampler will practice a levy slaved to time, or one-time levy if the nature of releases warranted (eg homogeneous release in batches) . In this case, the flow and its evolution will be estimated by the sampling based on information collected on site (water meters, water balance, etc). The sampler will have when returning specify the sampling methodology applied.
Metrological control of the sampling device must be carried out periodically on the following points (recommendations FD T 90-523-2 guide):
- Accuracy and repeatability of the sample volume (minimum volume 50 ml, permissible difference between theoretical and actual volume 5%);
- Circulation of the effluent velocity in the upper pipe or equal to 0.5 m / s.
Control of materials and sample bodies will achieve (see sampling system white)
The positioning of the effluent outlet shall observe the following:
- In a turbulent zone;
- Halfway up the water column;

- At a sufficient distance from the walls to avoid sample contamination by deposits or biofilms that develop.
2.5. sample
The representativeness of the sample is difficult to obtain in the case of splitting some waste water because of their high heterogeneity of their high content of MES or floating materials. A homogenizer system can be used in these cases. It should not change the sample.
The sample conditioning shall be carried in containers in accordance with official methods in force specific for the substance to be analyzed and / or NF EN ISO 5667-31.
Transport of samples to the laboratory must be performed in a chamber maintained at a temperature of 5 C ± 3 C, and be completed within 24 hours after the end of the sample to ensure sample integrity.
The temperature of the enclosure or samples will be checked on arrival at the laboratory indicated in the reporting on analyzes.
Sampling white White sampling system:
The sampling system of white is intended to verify the absence of contamination related to materials (bottles, pipes) used or cross-contamination between successive samples. It is the phlebotomist to implement the provisions for demonstrating the absence of contamination. The transmission of the results is validated and the operator will be deemed issuer of all substances found in his rejection, the corresponding levels. It will be up to him to control that no contamination before transmission of results.
If a sampling system blank is made, it is recommended to follow the following requirements: it must be made compulsory for a period of 3 hours minimum. It may be carried out in the laboratory by flowing water free of micropollutants in the sampling system.
The acceptance criteria and white taken in account will be:
- If value white ¸ LQ: do not subtract the results of the sampling system white the results of the effluent;
- If value of LQ white and less than the measurement uncertainty attached to the results: do not subtract the results of the sampling system white the results of the effluent;
- If value white ¹ measurement uncertainty attached to the results: the presence of contamination is confirmed, the laboratory must redo the sampling and analysis of rejection considered.
White atmosphere:
Achieving a white atmosphere allows analysis in the laboratory to ensure the reliability of the results obtained for volatile compounds or may be dispersed in the air and can provide explanatory data to the operator.
The atmosphere of white can be produced at the request of the operator in case of suspicion of the presence of volatile substances (BTEX, VOC, chlorobenzene, mercury ...) on the test site.
If completed, it must be necessarily and systematically:
- The day of collection aqueous effluents;
- Over a period of 24 hours or, in any case, a sampling time of identical white atmosphere of the sampling time of the aqueous effluent. The methodology is to let a water bottle free of VOC and metals exposed to the ambient air is formed where the sample 24 hours slaved to flow.
The values ​​of the white atmosphere will be mentioned in the analysis and in no case exempt other report. 3
analysis All analytical procedures must be started if possible within 24 hours and in any event no later than 48 hours after the sampling.
All analyzes are accountable for the entire sample (raw effluent, including MES) complying with the provisions on the treatment of MY listed below, except for polybrominated diphenyl ethers.
In the case of metals, the analysis required is a determination of the total concentration of metal contained in the effluent (no filtration), obtained after digestion of the sample according to the standards:
ISO 15587-1 "Water quality. - Digestion for the determination of selected elements in water. - Part 1: aqua regia digestion "; or
ISO 15587-2 "Water quality. - Digestion for the determination of selected elements in water. - Part 2: digestion with nitric acid. "

For mercury, complete digestion step without filtration is described in the specific analytical standards in this element.
In the case of alkyl phenols are asked to simultaneously search nonylphenol, octylphenol and the first two homologous ethoxylates (5) nonylphenol (NP1OE and NP2OE) and the first two ethoxylates counterparts (5) octylphenols (OP1OE and OP2OE). Search ethoxylates can be done without additional cost together with that of nonylphenol and octyl by using the draft standard ISO / DIS 18857-2 (6).
Some usual monitoring parameters of the institution, namely the COD (chemical oxygen demand) or TOC (total organic carbon) according to the prefectural in force, and MES (suspended solids) will be systematically analyzed in each as effluent standards ([7] see notes [8], [9] and [10]) to ensure the representativeness of the activity of the institution on the day of measurement.
The analytical performance to be achieved for waste water are given in Annex 5.2. They come from the exploitation of quantification limits provided by the analysis providers in the context of the action SRED since 2005.
Consideration of MES:

For parameters referred to in Annex 5.1 (with the exception of COD, TOC and TSS) is asked:
- If 50 ¸ ¸ MY 250 mg / l: liquid extractions achieve 3 / liquid successive minimum of the crude sample without separation;
- If MY 250 mg / l: analyze separately the aqueous phase and the particulate phase after filtration or centrifugation of the crude sample, except for the volatile compounds for which the processing of the raw sample by filtration is avoided. The volatile compounds are concerned: 3.4 dichloroaniline Epichlorhydrine, Tributylphosphate, chloroacetic acid, Benzene, Ethylbenzene, Isopropylbenzene, Toluene, Xylenes (Somme o, m, p), 1,2,3-trichlorobenzene, 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene, 1,3,5 trichlorobenzene, chlorobenzene, 1,2-dichlorobenzene, 1,3-dichlorobenzene, 1,4-dichlorobenzene, 1-chloro 2-nitrobenzene, 1 chloro-3-nitrobenzene, 1-chloro-4-nitrobenzene, 2-chlorotoluene, 3-chlorotoluene, 4-chlorotoluene, nitrobenzene, 2 nitrotoluene, 1,2-dichloroethane, methylene chloride, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, chloroprene, 3 chloropropene, 1,1-dichloroethane, 1,1-dichloroethylene, 1,2-dichloroethylene, hexachloroethane, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane, Tetrachloroethylene , 1,1,1 trichloroethane, 1,1,2 trichloroethane, trichlorethylene, vinyl chloride, 2-chloroaniline, 3-chloroaniline, 4-chloroaniline and 4-chloro-2-nitroaniline.
The refund for each loaded effluent (MES 250 mg / l) will be: value in g / l obtained in the aqueous phase, value mg / kg obtained in the particulate phase and total value calculated in g / l.
The analysis of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) is not requested in the water, and will perform according to ISO 22032 standard only on MES as soon as their concentration is 50 mg / l. The amount of MES to be taken for the analysis should help achieve an equivalent LQ in water of 0.05 mg / l for each BDE.
