Subject: Capacity for Secondary Containment

A number of people have asked what the requirements are for secondary containment at SAAs.  I have not found a specific "requirement".

A guideline I've heard is that secondary containment capacity should be 110% of the largest container or 10% of the aggregate volume of all containers.

What do you use at your facilities?

Any thoughts or comments?
