Re: Auto repair shop

Sorry this took so long to get back to you, but I was having trouble
tracking down someone who, I felt might be able to provide you with
information on equipment that recycles this water on site.

Try Gary Day, of D.A. Stuart Company, P.O. Box 346, Batavia, NY  14201,
Tel: 416-757-3226, Fax:  416-757-3220, E-Mail:  www.dastuart.com

collected into a tank.  Eventually, the wastewater gets shipped off-site as
a liquid industrial waste.  The owner would like to stop shipping the
wastewater off-site and wants alternatives (treatment on site or possibly
utilizing the wastewater elsewhere).  He is already looking into
alternative floor cleaning methods--does anyone have any suggestions?

recommendations on the feasibility of this or would it cause more
environmental concerns?
