On U.S. farms and ranches, federal regulations require plans and systems to contain spills of toxic substances and prevent damage the environment, including water tables, soil and air used for agricultural purposes. Polystar offers several solutions for oilfield and chemical spill containment to prevent environmental harm and stay compliant.
Not sure if the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations apply to your farm or ranch?
Federal regulation defines a farm as “a facility on a tract of land devoted to the production of crops or raising of animals, including fish, which produced and sold, or normally would have produced and sold, $1,000 or more of agricultural products during a year.”
Compliance with government regulations is required if your farm:
As defined by the law, keep these tips in mind in evaluating your farm:
* Only count containers of oil with a storage capacity of 55 US gallons and above.
* Consider adjacent or non-adjacent parcels, either leased or owned, as separate facilities. The farmer identifies the existence of separate parcels based on how each operates. If separate parcels exist, do not add containers together in determining whether the 1,320-gallon applicability threshold is met.
If your farm meets all the above criteria, then your farm is covered by government requirements.
Polystar Containment’s secondary spill containment systems meet EPA government regulations and work well on all farm and ranch environments.
Polystar’s innovative Poly Dike MPE design allows all system components to be nested and stacked for great convenience. The system sets up quickly and easily without special tools or lifting equipment. In addition, the Poly Dike MPE is not secured to the substrate, so it is perfect for long-term or temporary use in parking lots, sand, rocky soil, muddy soil, frozen soil or on concrete areas.
Despite the ease of assembly and site flexibility, the rugged Poly Dike MPE absorbs the impact of a catastrophic tank failure without loss. The Poly Dike MPE is a strong solution for farms and ranches due to its mobility, storage stackability, and easy use without substrate attachment.
Our Poly Dike wall containment systems use truncated triangular structures manufactured of various thicknesses in fiberglass, based on wall height. Poly Dike’s unique design allows both sides of the wall to equally share and bear the load. The Poly Dike is flexible – its modular design, coupled with wall heights varying from 12″ to 30″, allows flexible use of floor space to meet capacity requirements. Use the Poly Dike wall containment systems in place of concrete as a secondary containment system around storage tanks.

"I have been installing Poly Dike MPE Systems for well over a year. My business requires a system that ships easily and installs quickly with minimal personnel and tools yet provides robust spill containment in a professional looking package. The MPE System not only meets, but exceeds my expectations in each of these areas ... All-in-all, I guess what’s most impressive is that after a single installation, every customer of mine now requires that I use the Poly Dike MPE for his job site. Nothing speaks more to the confidence me and my customers have in the MPE system than that."
