Locomotive engine cleaning

Hello Everyone

We are presently working with an regional railway planning to locate a
maintainance shop in a small town.  Part of the operations will be the
washdown of locomotive engines.  The company expects to discharge approx
1000 gal per day from this operation.  Due to the Town's limited
wastewater capacity and the nature of the effluent, we are strongly
encouraging the railway to install some type of wash water recirculation
/ reuse system.  I am aware of the Landa and Mark IV systems used for
truck washing.  Does anyone have information on other systems or case
studies specific locomotive engine cleaning.
