French term or phrase: sous butte
I am translating an induction document for a biomolecular engineering lab and am stuck on the term "sous butte" which is a location for storing solvents:
Les produits chimiques sont stockés dans des armoires dédiées dont certaines sont ventilées. Une partie des solvants est stockée dans le *local sous butte *: seul le personnel permanent est habilité à s'y rendre.

I would be grateful for any help.

English translation:mounded storage facility / mounded storage tank
Explanation:
might be completely wrong on this but still worth a try:

The chemicals are stored in dedicated cabinets, some of which are ventilated. Some of the solvents are stored in a mounded storage facility / mounded storage tank: Only the permanent staff is authorized to go there.

All non-gardening "sous butte" references seem to point to Nancy University. Here they present a dossier about storage (problems) "sous butte" and elsewhere – does that help at all?
