OPW Spill Containment Manholes are designed to prevent spilled product from entering the soil near the fill and vapor return riser connections on underground storage tanks during normal tank filling operation, or in the event of tank overfill. The spill containers catch spillage to help prevent soil contamination and groundwater pollution. OPW Thread-On Spill Containment Manholes are generally used on new tank or riser pipe installations.
-Easy Installation – reduces job-site time and installation costs. OPW Thread-On Spill Containers screw directly onto 4″ NPT riser. No external connections to make; adjust the final grade height and support the unit with backfill.
-Integral Pull-to-Open Drain Valve – allows high-speed drainage of excess product into the tank. Designed with a convenient self-cleaning seal and removable screen for easier component cleaning.
-Capacity – available in a true 5-gallon capacity as well as 15-gallon capacity.
-Rain-Shedding Cover – available in either cast aluminum or cast iron, this unique design incorporates a seal in the underside of the cover. The seal seats between two dams on the mounting ring to prevent surface water from entering the spill container.

plow and traffic damage, and provides for secure concrete anchoring.
