Wavin/Labko bypass system fights oil from rainwater runoff at the new IKEA / Ikano commercial center in Tampere, Finland
As they say, the devil is in the details. Rain water management isn’t just siphoning off rainwater to prevent flooding and maintain groundwater levels. When you drain rainwater from roads, car parks, industrial areas and other public spaces, regulations also require the separation of oil, silt and other contaminants carried from surfaced areas straight into the environment. Heavy metals, combined with solid matter such as sand and dirt, are also carried along with the rain water.
