Believing that the spill could be contained while the drench water would be released is the same as beleiving you could assign a section of a swimming pool for peeing.

My understanding is that the curb is meant to keep any spill that may occur in the laboratory from reaching the drain; it is not meant to contain the drench water.  There has been no mention of containing or collecting the drench water (thank goodness).
