Prevención de Derrames Menores y Métodos de Limpieza.

EL DESARROLLADOR, se compromete a disponer de un kit para enfrentar contingencias relacionadas con los derrames de sustancias peligrosas.

Los derrames menores de combustible, o goteos de lubricante, pueden limpiarse utilizando materiales absorbentes. Se preferirá el uso de arena como absorbente de derrame.

El material absorbente, contaminado con combustible, será recolectado y almacenado en un recipiente con capacidad de 55 galones con tapa, ***protegido al interior de un dique impermeable***, y serán entregados a una empresa autorizada por el Ministerio del Ambiente.

Todos los materiales utilizados para la limpieza de derrames pequeños deberán estar disponibles de manera apropiada en sitios de fácil acceso y siempre visibles.

Hago la consulta porque me suena rara la expresión "protegido al interior de un dique impermeable"

impermeable berm
Explanation:
protected by or within an impermeable berm

wikipedia
Berms are also used as a method of environmental spill containment and liquid spill control. Bunding is the construction of a secondary impermeable barrier around and beneath storage or processing plant, sufficient to contain the plant's volume after a spill. This is often achieved on large sites by surrounding the plant with a berm. The EPA requires that oils and fuels stored over certain volume levels be placed in secondary spill containment. Berms for spill containment are typically manufactured from PVC or geomembrane fabric that provide a barrier to keep spills from reaching the ground or navigable waterways. Most berms have sidewalls to keep liquids contained for future capture and safe disposal.
