Seems to me you skip the berm and just fill the drain with concrete.

Sorry everyb ody, but you are mixing up two ideas. They asked for the 1=" berm to prevent a chemical spill elsewhere in the lab from g aining access to the sewer system. The idea of capturing shower water for disposal as hazardous waste is a different idea.
