Multi-disciplinary Expertise in Fire Water Retention

For industrial facilities like waste companies or other EPA licensed sites, best-practice compliance is crucial as premises and activities are subject to regular checks and assessments. In this context, fire-water retention involves the provision of large storage facilities to contain contaminated fire water, and which may carry toxins harmful to the environment.

If you run a waste facility or similar industrial premises, you understand this requirement. You also know that a multi-disciplinary consultant can offer you all you need in terms of fire-water retention planning, design, and environmental expertise. At Boylan Consulting, our project teams have a mix of engineers and environmental scientists and can offer you a multi-faceted service.
