Oil and water

Remember this one? Same physics, same colours, different context. Here, diesel forms a thin film on a rivulet at my local petrol station. I wonder what drainage requirements they have (if any!) to prevent this going straight into the stormwater system.

No regulations on the stations here. If they have a spill they hose it down with water and it washes right into the drains, and thence into the bay.

Looks like its regulated at a regional level. A cursory google shows that Marlborough at least requires petrol and oil interceptors in petrol stations.
