Pat Shingleton: "Clean-Up Consequences"
"Mop-Up" operations continue for some areas from our recent rains. Mops could be added to the list of hurricane season essentials. Eliminating water from businesses and residences following storms seems to be the first chore. Dan Theobald, an expert in water purification and conservation, contends that mop waste water may include pertinent cleaners and particulate matter. Waste contains limited contaminants. Industrial plant floor water includes a toxic blend of chemicals, especially in maintenance areas of factories, hospitals and steel mills. Theobald believes that the chemical makeup and volume of mop waste water, compared to general waste water, requires handling, storage, analysis and treatment before discharging into the environment.
