Storm Desmond – forecourt flood clean-up

Wednesday’s (9th December) flood clean-up work has involved helping a number of forecourts in Carlisle get back on their feet. Adler & Allan has been washing down forecourts using jetters and tankers, cleaning gully’s and separators to ensure that discharge water does not pollute the surrounding environment, uplifting flood water and silt from basement areas.

Apart from flood clean-up, we have been sampling and testing fuel to check for water contamination. Adler & Allan provides fuel testing and polishing services, using mobile, on-site units and in our dedicated laboratory.


Adler & Allan’s flood protection capabilities 

Flood response and clean-up:  Adler & Allan’s emergency response teams are on-hand 24/7 to clean-up flood water, preventing asset and environmental damage. Our expert teams can sanitise equipment, while limiting pollution to ground and watercourses.

Flood risk assessments: A flood risk assessment (FRA) will determine the potential risks of flooding to a site, with recommendations being given on how best to tackle the threat.

Flood defences: Following a flood risk assessment, we can advise appropriate flood defence measures. Flood defences available through Adler & Allan, include JBAR®, a modular flood defence system that prevents spills as well as mitigating against flood water.


Thank you for responding on Sunday following my call to your emergency response helpdesk, your co-ordination was both timely and professional.
