Firefighting water is: ‘Water used to cool, extinguish or prevent the spread of fire during an incident. It is likely to become contaminated with product and firefighting foam as a consequence of its use in firefighting activities. Water that is used solely to cool storage tanks water sprays or deluge systems (often described as cooling water) is less likely to become contaminated with product.’
