Light Plant in Secondary Containment

The kiddy pool is placed under the motor and drip pan. If there are drips that cause a sheen while rain water is present, the sheen will be picked up with spill pads and the water tipped out onto the ground. The spill pads will be paced in a plastic bag and disposed of in the trash.

Sed Cage

Sed Cage is a catch basin protection best management practice that seems to work well at ponding water, which allows sediment to settle out. It provides some filtration but does plug up, then becoming a barrier. I have only seen it used in this application on a Superfund cleanup site. I imaging that it can be reused if taken care of and cleaned after use. I might even use this over a catch basin insert in some applications.
