Do I need a separator on my site?

A separator is required on sites where surface water may be contaminated by oil. These sites need to have measures in place to prevent this oil from polluting the environment. Sites that commonly required a separator to be installed include:


Car parks typically larger than 800m2 in area, or with 50+ car parking spaces


Smaller car parks discharging to a sensitive environment


Areas where goods vehicles are parked or manoeuvred


Vehicle maintenance areas




Industrial sites where oil is stored or used


Refueling facilities


Any other site with a risk of oil contamination


It’s always best to check whether a separator is required, as you can face hefty fines for discharging polluted water. Give RA Dalton a call on 01388 537030 and we’ll be happy to advise.

Feedback From Satisfied Customers

  • I have recently had a new sewage system installed at one of my sites which wasn't a straight forward job due to it being located in a private field, we had to make sure the owner, as well as our residents were happy with the proposals. Ian Murray met me on site on 2 occasions, with the owner of the field ans was very professional and explained exactly what would be happening, putting the field owners mind at rest. The job went to plan with no unexpected costs and minimal disruption to the field. Very happy customer!
