Permanent Wash Bays
Fixed wash bays that comply with all regulations
Need to get a wash area up to local authority standards? Triple interceptors or oil separators alone may not be enough. But Cleanawater's wash bay equipment can help you meet their strict criteria.
Our permanent wash bays collect and isolate wash water effectively. And when combined with our storm water diversion systems (for unroofed wash bays), they'll help ensure authority compliance.
We'll custom-design a wash bay to your exact requirements. Cleanawaters wash bay construction means your bay will accommodate the size and weight of your equipment. And it means you may be able to open up new revenue streams from quarantine/AQIS wash down.

Typically, unroofed wash down bays require perimeter bunding, a holding pit, a diversion system and a pre-treatment device to treat wash down water and should not allow run-off to a storm water drain or adjacent area.
Silt traps and baffled pits are effective measures to retain solids for easy scheduled removal. Beach pits/drive in sumps are excellent for high-solids wash down environments.
An approved pre-treatment device is required to treat wash down water in wash down bays. Simply allowing wash water to discharge into drains is strictly not permitted.
Unroofed wash down bays over 20m2 may require a first flush diversion system to divert rainwater to stormwater.
In the absence of a sewer, other approved discharge methods include leach drains, evaporative ponds or holding tanks.
Regional areas who are on septic should contact the local shire or council for advice on where to discharge treated wash water.
Sewerage pump stations collect sewerage and pump it to the municipal system. Buy a simple plug and play unit or customise a larger unit for your needs
