Wouldn’t it be better to put the berm at the entrances to the lab wit h no drain. At least that way 20 X 30 lab would be able to contain app roximately 300 gallons (15 minutes times 20 gallons per minute). Oh-oh, my s howers produce approximately 40 gallons per minute. Of course, the person in the shower would need a platform so they would not be standing in the hazma t. Also, would anyone be able to get to the person to provide treatmen t until the hazmat was cleaned?
Good intentions, but like somebody already said, this gives safety a bad na me.

Sorry everybody, but you ar e mixing up two ideas. They asked for the 1” berm to prevent a chemica l spill elsewhere in the lab from gaining access to the sewer system. The id ea of capturing shower water for disposal as hazardous waste is a different idea.
