English translation: oil sluice system

15:53 Feb 19, 2018
German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Petroleum Eng/Sci / Oil mining and storage
German term or phrase: Ölsielnetz
This is from contractor health and safety guidelines issued by an oil company:

Es ist streng verboten, Abwässer oder andere Medien ohne besondere Genehmigung in das Regen- oder Ölsielnetz zu leiten. Im Bedarfsfall haben Sie uns die Zulassung nach § 19 l WHG vorzulegen.

It seems fairly obvious, both from the context and from a literal translation, what this means ("oil sewer network"). The problem is I can't find a single reference to it in German or English. Maybe it is specific to this particular company?
