Here at Wind River Environmental, service quality is our middle name. It makes for a long signature – Wind River Service Quality Environmental – but it’s true nonetheless. Learn more on how we can help your company with outside services such as septic services and outside grease tank services.
Outside Grease Tank Services
Our (smartly) uniformed technicians will empty your outside grease tanks and legally dispose of the waste. They will also check the inlet and outlet pipes; measure grease thickness; suggest service frequency; evaluate the need for Drain Master; and document this information for you.
Proper frequency of outside service is a must. Outside grease tanks are quite large and, if not serviced properly, can experience hardened grease build up. While a great name for a heavy metal band, “hardened grease build up” can cause back-ups or overflows outside as well as draining issues inside.
To be 310 CMR Compliant according to the Department of Environmental Protection, “Grease tanks and Grease traps shall be inspected monthly and shall be cleaned by a licensed septage hauler whenever the level of grease is 25% of the effective depth of the trap, or at least every 90 days, whichever is sooner.”
(Note that some states and towns require a specific frequency for grease tank services. Check our handy Regulations and Resources page, with your Wind River Environmental technician, or your local board of health for more information and to avoid any violation fees.)
Indirect Waste Pit Services
Establishments engaged in the storage, preparation, selling, serving or processing of food and beverage often require indirect waste piping for refrigerators, freezers, walk-in coolers, iceboxes, ice-making machines, coffee urns and brewers, hot-and-cold drink dispensers, and similar equipment. This Indirect Waste piping discharges into the building drainage system and requires preventative maintenance. Wind River Environmental has the equipment and trained personnel to ensure proper functionality.
Septic Tank Service
Simply put, routine septic pumping service is the key to maintaining a healthy commercial septic system. There’s no way to avoid sludge build up, but regular and proper septic pumping will help keep it at a manageable level.
In addition, regular septic pumping service will help to identify potential problems that could be lurking under the surface (literally). Our technicians are trained to spot early warning signs that you would probably not notice.
When we service your septic tank we will empty it and legally dispose of the waste.
At every service visit, our technicians will also check the inlet and outlet pipes; measure the sludge and scrum thickness; suggest service frequency; and document this information for you on our work order.
As with inside cleaning, proper frequency of outside service is a must. Outside septic tanks are usually quite large and, if not serviced properly, can experience hardened solids build up. This may build up in your system and cause back-ups or overflows outside the building as well as draining issues on the inside.
Recently, we were called to the scene of a 1.2 million gallon emergency (Hint: that’s a lot). The night after a capacity crowd concert, a gate valve let go at the treatment plant at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. A team of Wind River pump trucks was called in to provide pumping relief. In the video below, Marty, one of our technicians, talks about the emergency and Wind River’s response – pumping nearly 900,000 gallons to avert the crisis.
Septic Design & Installation
When it’s time for a new commercial septic system our engineers can help you through the process of design and installation from start to finish.
We’ll ensure the proper permits are pulled and guidelines followed, whether it involves septic systems, leach fields, tanks, traps, or some combination.
Get in Touch and we’ll get you started.
Septic System Repairs
We handle repair jobs of all sizes. We’ll both dispose of your non-hazardous waste and handle your entire commercial septic or grease system.
There are many elements to your grease or septic system and it’s important to keep all components in good working condition so that your system – and business – keep running smoothly.
The safety of your employees and customers is priority number one. That means that your septic and grease covers need to be in perfect condition.
We stock a wide range of cover types and sizes (e.g., round, square, plaid, blueberry), and can handle replacements of any nature. We always alert you if we spot any weaknesses in your current cover (or wardrobe).
Some tanks have covers that are deep underground, causing potential problems when servicing. We can help prevent this by installing a Build Up, which is required by code (also known as a “riser”). This will bring the level of your cover closer to or even with the surface.
Distribution Box, Inlet/Outlet T’s and Baffles
These essential elements don’t last forever. In older systems (and many new ones), these components were made of concrete. Concrete is susceptible to deterioration by the gases present in a waste system. Often we can repair or replace them with P.V.C. products, as needed.
If you are experiencing low levels in your septic system, you may have a crack, leak or hole in your tank. We will inspect and seal it if possible, avoiding replacement.
Septic System Rejuvenation
Over time, your leach field may stop leaching water properly. That’s when we attempt a rejuvenation of the soil absorption system.
This involves pumping your leach field, installing a Leach Field Port, water jetting and adding our system-cleaning Boost Bacteria and/or septic scrubs.
White Knight System:
Here we cultivate a large colony of soil bacteria to eat away at bio-material build-up in your tank and under the leach field lines. Call us to see if your septic system qualifies.
