Outdoor Loading/Unloading Area

Items should be loaded/unloaded in a covered area to prevent contact with stormwater. Also spill kits and/or other stormwater devices should be used (e.g. mat to cover drywell when loading/unloading). Loading/unloading areas should be kept clean and any spills should be cleaned up immediately.

Here are a few examples of loading/unloading areas.
