Drainage Systems

Gas Station Drainage

There are a multitude of variables to consider when planning drainage systems for gas station facilities. Not only do you need to redirect storm water away from the building, but you also have to be mindful of the chemical wastes that contaminate the runoff as it finds its way to the drainage system.

Weight loads for vehicles of all shapes and sizes will need to be considered for the traffic that visits the station for refueling.

Trench drain systems near the building can capture rainfall and prevent pooling and flooding water. In this instance, pedestrian traffic may require you to use ADA compliant and heel proof grates for walkways.

It will be necessary to clean the drain from time to time so getting to it will need to be planned as well.

3 Considerations

It’s a Gas

With harsh vehicular chemicals being captured during drainage, using the proper material type for trench drain systems is imperative. Contact our experts to assist you with your project.

Retain and Detain

At gas stations it is important to ensure that any chemical waste is properly captured and contained to meet federal, state and local requirements. Our experts can help you find the right drainage system that can hold up to the harsh vehicular chemicals.

Lock and Load

Locking devices ensure that trench drain grates stay in place. This keeps dirt, stones and other debris from getting between the grate and the trench. This prevents rocking and breakage of the grates.
