Storm Water Services (SWS) announces the opening of their DECANT FACILITY located at 1120 NE 11th Street in Redmond.
What is a decant facility?
A DECANT FACILITY is a large concrete pad where stormwater waste (retrieved from catch basins & drywells) can be properly separated and treated to be recycled or tested and properly disposed.
What is the purpose of a decant facility?
Stormwater drainage systems can contain above normal concentrations of contaminates such as dissolved heavy metals, heavy oil and gasoline. If left untreated, this sediment could result in contamination to the groundwater and the environment.
How does the decant facility work?
A vactor truck delivers the waste to the decant facility where the sediment and fluids properly settle and dry. It is an environmentally safe process that is monitored and tested for compliance with state regulations.
Who can use it?
The DECANT FACILITY will be open to the public, by appointment only.
How much does it cost?
$250 minimum for the first two cubic yards and $60 per cubic yard for the balance of the load.
