Waste Water

Decon Tank

Toxic wastewater is generated as a result of decontamination activities performed at medical facilities that may contain CBR substances. According to the current IPC and UPC codes, chemical drainage shall be completely separated from the sanitary sewer system (Chapter 8, Section 803.3, IPC 2009). The ParkUSA DeconTank, is specifically designed to control decontamination wastewater for the protection of personnel and the public sewer system.
For permanent installations utilizing gravity flow drainage, a below grade tank is recommended. There are two types of tanks:

  • DeconTank “Holding” Tank is a tank that is plumbed with open shut valves that allow the discharge of decontamination wastewater to the sanitary sewer system after it is determined to be an allowable discharge. If outlet pipe from the tank extends and connects to a public sewer line, then the tank is considered as part of the building plumbing. The tank should comply with local plumbing regulations.
  • DeconTank “Storage” Tank is a holding tank that is not directly connected to a public sewer line (such that it would require pumping to empty it) and is considered a “storage tank”. The manhole should not be less than 20" in size. All manholes should extend to grade. The interceptor should be located near the source of the wastewater for the protection of the piping system.
