Adler & Allan has had a busy couple of weeks helping businesses in Cumbria deal with flooding and clean-up its destruction. Working primarily with forecourts and retail outlets, Adler & Allan’s teams have been helping businesses limit damage and prevent pollution. As part of the flood clean-up operation in Cumbria, we have performed the following services:
- Cleaning forecourt premises with de-silting and oily water uplift
- Separator cleaning to ensure surface water can run off and is pollution free
- Fuel uplift and transfers
- Fuel sampling, testing and polishing where fuel has been contaminated with water
- General site clearing and decontamination
- Water jetting, for car parks and drains
- Acid bund cleaning and bund emptying
Adler & Allan’s flood clean-up operation started on Tuesday 8th December. We are currently still working with businesses in the area and further support is due to be provided in Glenridding and Lancaster. With depots throughout the UK (Carlisle, Glasgow, Teeside, Manchester, Droitwich, Tunbridge Wells, Rainham and Hamble), Adler & Allan can quickly deploy its flood clean-up teams wherever there’s an issue.
Adler & Allan’s flood protection capabilities
Flood response and clean-up: Adler & Allan’s emergency response teams are on-hand 24/7 to clean-up flood water, preventing asset and environmental damage. Our expert teams can sanitise equipment, while limiting pollution to ground and watercourses.
Flood risk assessments: A flood risk assessment (FRA) will determine the potential risks of flooding to a site, with recommendations being given on how best to tackle the threat.
Flood defences: Following a flood risk assessment, we can advise appropriate flood defence measures. Flood defences available through Adler & Allan, include JBAR, a modular flood defence system that prevents spills as well as mitigating against flood water.
