Crossrail compliant vehicles must have the following equipment to be allowed on to a Crossrail construction site.

  • All HGVs must have Fresnel lenses

  • Side and Rear Cameras, with a TV monitor in the cabin
  • Under-run guards must also be fitted. This is to help prevent cyclists from coming into contact with the HGVs wheels.

Flood Warning!

Need a Fast Response to Flooding!

If you’re in a high-risk flood area, then Tardis Environmental can help weather you’re a domestic or construction customer.

Flooded Car Park

The met office has issued out warnings and alerts for known areas that are at risk of flooding. So what can we do to help prevent or even minimize damage caused by flooding?

We have a large fleet of vacuum tankers that can take large amounts of wet wastewater to help alleviate possible damage caused be flooding. Some of our tankers can also have a high vol jet vac that can clean your drains from leafs and debris that may slow the rate the floodwater gets drained.

Tardis Environmental also has industrial water pumps that can move the wastewater from a flooded area to a drain or river that is not flooded.

The WX10 and WH20 water pumps are useful for small jobs like filling small water tanks and increasing water pressure.

The WB20 and WB30 are great for moving large amounts of water with small debris within the water.

Now the WT20 is probably the best bet to move waste water as it can handle large amounts of water and large sized debris up to 24mm.

WRAS means The Water Regulations Advisory Scheme and for a product to be WRAS approved it demonstrates that the item complies with the high standards that the water regulations promulgated back in 1999 for the United Kingdom. So you now know that our WRAS approved water bowsers and water tanks come at a high standard.

WRAS covers all plumbing systems, water fittings, water bowsers, water tanks and any equipment that is going to supply water from the public water supply.

Water Bowser

Is it a illegal requirement to have WRAS products?

No it is not illegal to install a product that is not WRAS, but you may need to have proof or prove the compliance in other ways. No WRAS approved products are mainly used in areas where human health could not be compromised. We can provided WRAS approved piping and fitting along with our highly trained Tardis plumber.

How can you tell if its WRAS Approved?

On all WRAS approved there should be a WRAS approval number this is a way of proving that the product is WRAS approved. But even if for say the water bowser is WRAS approved if it was installed or operated incorrectly then this might breach the water regulations 1999. Don’t worry we have a Tardis Plumber who knows all about WRAS installation and operation.

The blue bins will be recycling all our paper we use, apart from cardboard which will be placed in the red bin.

Not only do we recycle our paper, but if we print on one side and don’t need the paper anymore we place it back in the print and print on the other side as this will reduce our need for paper, which in turn will mean less trees being cut day.

Problems with Septic Tank Emptying

Incorrectly Installed Septic Tank

As you know Tardis Environmental can perform a septic tank emptying service and will take 1000 gallons of septic tank waste per septic tank emptying service. So what happens when you have two 500 gallon septic tanks that are full and are in need of a tank emptying service?

Emptying Septic tank

Septic Tank Refilling with rain water

 

 

 

 

 

Normally we would come and empty both tanks as they both add up to 1000 gallons. But when we went out to empty the two tanks at the site, we found that they were not installed correctly in to the ground as both waste tanks have the same problem.

The problem with the two tanks was they were not properly sealed to stop rain and storm water from creating a layer of water above the tank.

When we started to empty the two tanks and was getting close to our 1000 gallon limit we noticed the two tanks were still not empty. That’s when the storm and drain water started to refill the empty septic tank.

Emptying Septic Tank Again

We then contacted the customer and told them the problem with the two tanks, who then instructed us to continue to empty the two tank. After we emptied both septic tanks we measured how much wet waste we have taken from the two tanks which where ment to hold a 1000 gallons between them, we calculated that we took 1800 gallons of wet waste. Because the septic tanks were not sealed correctly a further 800 gallons needed to be taken of which was rain water.

So make sure your septic tank is correctly installed.
