Avoidance of water pollution from installations storing flammable, toxic or otherwise polluting material is a key environmental aim. CIRIA Report C736 (2014) is widely used in the industry, and many regulators require demonstration of compliance with the requirements of this document.

CIRIA has been undertaking a review of this guidance with a view to produce a supplement that captures experience with application of the guide and advances in approaches and technology. 

This event will provide several industry case studies illustrating the application of the guidance and as well as an overview of the survey which will inform a workshop being planned with a range of stakeholder organisations. The workshop will, in turn, inform the development of a supplement to CIRIA guide C736.
