Bund Testing and Rehabilitation

Bund integrity testing is a vital element of planned and preventative maintenance at sites that use bunds to protect material storage facilities.

AQS provides a national bund integrity testing service – and a comprehensive bund rehabilitation service.

A bund is a secondary containment system designed to prevent the escape of potentially-hazardous materials, usually from tank or drum storage facilities.

AQS works with clients to assess current bund requirements and ensure in currenting bunding complies with regulations, guidelines, and advice published by the Environmental Protection Agency.

We can provide clients with advice about bund design before they are installed, as well as integrity assessments of new bunds, and integrity assessments of in-service bunds.
