Hi everyone. I'm looking for some feedback. We are SQF certified. We have an old facility and are having some plumbing issues due to debris in the warehouse mop water. Instead of dumping the mop water in the floor drain, as they are doing, maintenance has the idea of using the adjacent hand washing sink. This would allow them to put a large screen in the sink to catch the debris (see attached photo). I guess they want a larger surface area for a screen than the floor drain can provide. This would still be used as a hand washing sink, located right outside the warehouse/production room bathrooms. I'm not sure if they would remove the screen in between uses. Are there any rules about keeping warehouse mop water and hand washing sinks separate? From a risk perspective, the mop water has chemicals in it that kill bacteria. My inclination is to say no, but this does continue to be a problem and I understand their focus on the plumbing issue. There's also a drinking station to the right of the sink. I would appreciate any suggestions.
