Flooding Pollution Control and Prevention

Understanding your responsibilities

Every commercial premises has a responsibility to maintain high standards of flooding pollution control and prevention, or else run the risk of regulatory action being taken against them. Lanes Drainage Services UK can help you proactively manage any risk of environmental contamination with our sophisticated flooding pollution control service.

Maintaining your systems to reduce risk

As the UK’s leading privately-owned specialist drainage and wastewater contractor, we have years of experience working with leading businesses to keep their drainage systems in optimal working order, minimising the risk of leaks or flooding. We can also help you install technology to keep you fully protected.

With environmental issues becoming increasingly high priorities for businesses, it has never been more important for companies to do their part to prevent pollution. By working with Lanes, you can ensure that your organisation is fulfilling this duty and guaranteeing full compliance with national regulations.


Our flooding pollution control services

At Lanes, we offer a range of services to help businesses prevent the risk of pollution and mitigate the impact of flooding, spills and extreme weather:

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) services

Our Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) service involves regular visits by our specialist team of engineers, helping you stay on top of the repairs necessary to keep your foul and surface water drainage in full working order.

A system that can operate at optimum capacity is better equipped to cope with severe weather events, which are likely to become more frequent due to the effects of climate change. Preventative maintenance is also more cost-effective than the much higher costs associated with repairs and cleanup after a pollution incident has already occurred.

Installing pollution control technology

Lanes is also able to help you install proactive pollution control technology on your premises, including monitoring devices and specialist non-return valves for your drainage system. This will help to further reduce the risk of flooding and pollution, ensuring you are able to keep track of any potential issues before they occur.

Why is pollution prevention so important for businesses?

Awareness of the importance of strong environmental stewardship has never been higher in the British business community. Regulators and consumers alike are paying closer attention to the environmental credentials of companies they work with than ever before, making it essential for these organisations to take this duty seriously.

If your business is found to be responsible for polluting or damaging protected species, natural habitats, water or soil, the legal consequences can be severe. Under UK law, you can be charged a potentially unlimited fine on a “polluter pays” basis; in the most serious cases, your organisation may also be prosecuted.

As such, it is vital that businesses are doing all they can to prevent pollution, including contaminants from sources such as sewage and wastewater, production waste, agricultural run-off, oil and chemical spills, or leakage from storage vessels. One of the key ways of doing this is to make sure your premises’ drains are kept in good working order, reducing the risk of the system blocking and backing up in case of a flood.
