Many authors write sensitively about human feelings, great cities and lovely landscapes, but often lack conviction when they wander into chemistry and science. Environmental chemistry and engineering in particular have been too often misrepresented. Notable excep tions are Neville Shute and H.G. Wells, who were in fact, scientists as well as novelists. Neville Shute wrote about

Publishers are rarely featured. One notable exception is Orson Welles' sen sational Citizen Kane, recently voted the best movie of all time. As with the real

Dentists are rai^ely shown ex cept as props in such movies as 10, which became the only number to express ad jectival as well as numerical values in our language. An old fihn on the life of Mad ame Curie is the only film I can recall about a chemist and she had to win two Nobel Prizes to attract filmmakers.

Mr. Herschlag is a refresh ing change, being a graduate engineer from Princeton Uni versity,followed by a decade ofemploy ment for the City of New York. As he also worked for a prestigious firm of consulting engineers, he gives the added perspectives of both municipal and con sulting engineering. In The Interceptor, the author gives us a gripping review of political and environmental corruption while dispel ling a myth that engineers cannot write. Not since Victor Hugo's Les Miserables has a story featuring a large city's sew erage system been such compelling reading.

ES&E's Sales Manager, Penny Davey, with the Honourable Norman Sterling. Dear Tom Davey, Whenever a new issue of Environmen

tal Science & Engineering lands on my desk, the first thing I do is flip to your editorial. Over the years, you've made a reputation for defusing (with a few well-chosen words)environmental fearmongering, exposing half-truths and setting the record straight. And you haven't been afraid to praise the success this province has had in ensuring that a plentiful supply of dependable, clean water is delivered to every Ontario resi dent.

However,I was somewhat surprised to see you turn your literary guns on the state of Ontario's municipal water and wastewater treatment infrastructure in

your September issue(Ontario's descent from acclaim to disdain in a single dec ade). And while I'm willing to take your best shot, I think some of the blame

you've fired in the direction of my min istry needs some clarification. Safeguarding the quality of Ontario's water resources is a job the Ministry of the Environment shares with many part ners. The federal government,the prov ince, municipalities, the environmental industry, individual companies and households each have a role to play. The primary responsibility of my staff is to establish and enforce tough water qual ity standards, in essence to ensure that municipal water and treatment plants are operating properly and in accordance with the environmental laws ofthe prov ince. And I think we have been pretty successful-some 99 percent of Ontario's

water treatment plants are in full com pliance. My ministry also pursues a preven

tive approach to protecting water qual ity. Watershed management helps plan land use and prevent cumulative stresses on the ecosystem; remedial action pro grams address historic contamination problems, and pollution prevention and water conservation programs encourage more efficient use of our water resources.

We are also working with other provinces and countries to preserve the health of our shared waterways through,for exam ple, the Canada-Ontario Agreement Re specting the Great Lakes Ecosystem. In turn, municipalities are charged with the Job of building, operating and maintaining the treatment plants and

come up with the bulk of this money. I believe a plentiful supply of clean, safe drinking water may be one of the greatest bargains Ontario residents re ceive. If it is going to cost more to safeguai'd that resource in the future then it's probably time to give serious thought to innovative ways to meet that demand in a more cost-effective marmer. That could

include aggressive pollution prevention, plant optimization, water conservation campaigns, innovative technologies, metering residential water use, and more realistic user fees for all services.

My ministry's mandate is, in your words, to continue to make Ontario "a

synonym for environmental excel lence". The province is committed to protecting the environment and ensur ing that Ontario residents can fill their glasses with clean, safe water every time they turn on the tap. I look forward to reading your always thought-provoking contributions to this challenge in up coming issues of your magazine. The Honourable Norman Sterling, Ontario Minister of the Environment

Quality Standards. It encourages ben eficial re-use of sewage biosolids and the development of cost-effective alter native technologies by allowing munici palities to chose either Process or Qual ity standards. The proposed SAR is pre sently under a final internal review,fol lowing a public consultation process through the Environmental Bill of Rights registry, and it is expected to be implemented later this year. Consistent with the Ministry's policy to disseminate information related to

3Rs initiatives to its partners, the MOE will offer training to interested parties, as a first step of SAR's implementation. The training will enable haulers and applicators, farmers and agronomists, municipal staff and government staff to keep abreast with the proposed regula tory changes. In late June 1998,the Min istry awarded a contract to CH2M Gore & Storrie Limited for the preparation of aTraining Manual for Utilization ofBio solids on Agricultural Land. The Manual was expected to be delivered in its final form by the end of November. The training will be delivered by MQE staff in partnership with experts in biosolids utilization (to be selected through an open bidding process), after the proposed SAR is approved. Tenta tively, four training sessions are sched uled during the month of January and February 1999, in four different loca tions, to be conveniently selected on geographical and cost-effectiveness cri teria. It is estimated that over 200

attendees will benefit from this training. I ill 5 l~

Military Site Remediation

Award-winning DEW Line cieanup uses risk-management approach

A legacy of the Cold War,the Canadian DEW Line sites

located at the 66th parallel on the Arctic coastline from

the Yukon Territoiy to Baffin Island, pro vided for early detection of military ap proaches over the North Pole. Now, over 40 years later, with advances in radar surveillance technology, the DEW Line facilities are redundant. They stand alone and unused on the remote Arctic tundra.

The Canadian Department of Na tional Defence has initiated the cleanup of these sites, based on a practical and cost-effective risk management model. The implementation strategy empha sizes the prevention of movement of chemical contaminants into the sensitive

Arctic ecosystem, and provides for the physical restoration of the sites. This project, designed by a consult ing team led by UMA, is scheduled to be completed in 2008, at an estimated cost of $250 million. For its work on

the DEW Line Cleanup Project, UMA was recently recognized with an Award of Merit from the Consulting Engineers of Alberta.

During original construction, mil lions of tons of gravel were excavated

from the frozen ground and used for roads,building foundations,and airstrips - enough, it was once reported, to build a highway 18-feet wide and a foot thick from Toronto to Vancouver. As part of the risk management approach, this gravel will be re-used for the physical restoration of these sites, which includes

building new landfills and covering the

hundreds of landfills that were created

during the operation of these sites. To address concerns of the Aborigi nal peoples regarding the "country" foods, contaminated materials within the

sites which could adversely impact veg etation and/or wildlife will be removed.

All hazardous materials will be shipped off site. Areas impacted by DEW Line activities that present no risk to the food chain will

be left in place and con toured to restore natural

drainage. Through the successful

Site Remediation

Stormwater pond comes clean

The discovery of petroleum-

contaminated sediment in a

stormwater pond meant that an otherwise routine cleanout

job required careful preparation and planning. Project constraints such as the need to protect the receiving stream,re route stormwater, collect and dispose of

were worked out, the need to satisfy the following constraints shaped the plan: • The receiving stream, the Rideau had accumulated since the pond began River, had to be protected. The SMF was required to remain in full operation operating in 1984. The presence of con tamination made the facility a priority during swimming season from May 15 for cleanout. At the time of the project, to September 15, therefore no summer work was permitted. the source of the contamination was •Pond dewatering would require pump ing (the SMF had no low level drain). • Any discharge to the SMF outlet had to meet storm sewer water quality limits. • Seepage (groundwater infiltration)

not be discharged to the storm sewer. • Contamination of the sediment neces

were used to excavate sediment, mix in

straw and load trucks for transport to the landfill. The excavators were eareful to

avoid incorporating gravel from the pond base into the sediment, since this would have greatly increased tipping fees. As work progressed down the pond, a pad of clean gravel was placed for the trucks which prevented the tires from becoming contaminated. The sediment removal phase was completed on October 15, including a Thanksgiving break. A total of 3,127 tonnes of sediment and gravel was re moved from the pond, close to the sur vey estimate of 2,875 tonnes of sedi ment. About 128 tonnes of straw were

used for bulking. To complete the job a layer of clean gravel was spread on the pond bottom,side gabions were repaired and a new gabion-reinforced sump was constructed to assist future cleanout op erations.

Conclusions

In summary, an apparently simple

Preparatory fieldwork and lab experi mentation were vital to develop a sound Remediation Plan. The unique combi nation of problems was successfully overcome through eareful planning. The project emphasized several im portant aspects of Stormwater Manage ment Facility design: • SMF design should provide a means for cleanout.

• The SMF site should include enough property to accommodate work or stag ing areas around the facility. •Ponds should have access for vehicles.

The base should be capable of support ing heavy equipment. • Ponds should ideally be self-draining or include sumps to permit easy dewatering. In the end, Nepean's stormwater fa cility performed admirably, protecting the Rideau River from pollution; the cleanout project was a success due to careful planning.

Solid Waste Management

How costly are our much beloved blue box programs?

According to a study prepared

for municipal politicians, Toronto's blue-box program costs 10 percent less than

landfilled garbage, giving only a slight financial edge to recycling. The objec tive of the study was to design a more cost-effective recycling program and to bolster Toronto's case for having a de posit-return system on beverage contain ers, a move the city estimated would

save municipal taxpayers about $4.8 million a year in reduced waste-manage ment costs.

The analysis indicates that overall net recycling costs are similar to landfill costs. This conclusion does not negate the validity of the blue box program. There are significant environmental ben efits from recycling. The report says it costs $77.70 a tonne to recycle blue-box materials, in cluding both collection costs and rev enue from sales of paper, cardboard, glass and other items collected. Landfilling, by contrast, costs $86 a tonne. Only aluminum makes a profit for mu nicipalities. The high cost of collecting contain ers such as pop bottles, steel cans and glass bottles is a major financial prob lem. After accounting for the revenue

ers was in place. A comprehensive re turn system covering all beverage con tainers might reduce the city's waste-dis

posal costs by $4.8 million annually. The reduction in the number of times blue box collections are made could also save money.

"Containers are expensive to recycle, but paper almost breaks even or is very cheap to recycle," said Usman Valiante,

The blue box system is also under fire in York Region, north of Toronto. The region should kill its blue box program unless provincial subsidies are restored or the bottle industry is forced to imple ment a deposit/return system, regional councillor Michael DiBiase says. As the acting chairperson of the re gion's waste management committee, he says the blue box program is simply not working. Ontario taxpayers have spent

While there is no official report on York Region's blue box programs, Mr. DiBiase pointed to a report by Dev Tyagi,the former director of solid waste within the City of North York. This report said: "The current pro gram costs municipalities hundreds of millions of dollars and diverts only 10 percent of the waste - 70 percent of which is paper," Tyagi stated in the yearold report. A number of major problems with the blue box program were outlined in the report. Recycling of glass, plastic and other containers has diverted only three

$264.71 a tonne,the study said. The net cost for paper is only $4.55 a tonne.

the disposal of pop containers to be the responsibility of beverage companies as this use of the blue box amounts to a

taxpayer subsidy. He predicts that the study will put pressure on municipal politicians to adopt a deposit-return sys tem for the city. The study estimated that Toronto's waste-management system could save about $1 million a year if a deposit-re turn system for wine and spirit contain-

percent of garbage from landfills and re cycling has replaced the more environ mentally sound concepts of reducing and reusing materials. DiBiase complained that the soft drink industry convinced the province in the 1980s to allow more recyclable plastic bottles at the expense of reusable glass. In return, the industry agreed to pay one-third of the cost of blue boxes. The province and municipalities split the remaining costs. But the industry and the province have since stopped paying their shares, leaving municipalities with the total bill. In York, municipalities collect recyclables and the region processes them. The region, which processes 30,000 tonnes a year, spends $1.2 million an nually on recycling. The environmental benefits of the

blue box program are evaluated in Tyagi's report and found wanting. "While we spend all this time and money ensuring that inert materials do not end up in landfill, we are allowing hazardous ma terials such as batteries, ballasts, used

oil, paint, household chemicals, etc., to be thrown in the garbage and landfilled." Councillor DiBiase stressed he's not

opposed to recycling. He pointed out the system is very successful with beer bottles, where more than 95 percent are retumed and reused. "Even if there is

one on the street, a kid will pick it up and bring it in for five cents," he said. â?&#x2013; 33

As part of their trending, they have discovered that by simultaneously graphing counts in the 3-15 micron and >3 micron ranges, they can identify the high levels of dissolved air typical of their source water. Ordinarily, the graph lines for the two ranges should overlap. When the lines start to drift apart, it in dicates air.

Flow Measurement

By Gary Gilbert and Charles Zimmerman, P.E.

Difficult wastewater flow measurement with a venturi tube

Recently we had an ap lication

for measurement of wastewater flows from the Garden

State Paper Company. The Passaic Valley Sanitary Commission uses a meter for billing the Paper Com pany. The waste stream includes both pulp and ink. The ink acts as an adhe sive, accelerating the rate at which the build-up of pulp on the pipe interior oc curs, which creates a problem for any type of meter. A venturi meter was cho sen because this is a billing application, and venturi tubes provide a provable measurement. However,several design fea tures were required to over come the difficulty in meas uring this particular flow. First, as part of the design process we installed a series of four temporary test pipe sections (spool pieces) of differing interior materials and finishes.

covery cones. These ports are designed so that when they are closed, the cor rect interior surface and curvature of the

venturi shape are maintained, with no effect on the performance of the meter. Besides preventing build-up inside the tube, we also needed to prevent clog ging or contamination of the pressure sensing ports, piping and flow transmit ter. This was done by using our Sealed Metering System™,including thin-wall stainless steel diaphragms exposed to the wastewater flow, with sealed and filled

the tube, to verify the differential pres sure while the meter is in operation. Having taken these steps, in order to prove the meter, the only question re maining is whether the interior shape or dimensions have changed. The inspec tion ports allow for full inspection (and cleaning, if necessary). In addition, we have found that total headloss through a Halmi Venturi Tube is extremely con sistent for a given shape and dimensions, and provides a reliable indicator if any such changes do occur. For this rea son, the Owner installed

Because this is a biUing meter,it must be as provable as possible. By its na ture, the performance of a venturi tube depends only on the interior dimensions and shape. The secondary equipment (flow transmitter) can be calibrated and checked against a reference differential pressure. At this meter, a manometer is permanently attached to the wall next

This is done with gases all the time, but in liquid flow measure ment the danger is drawing air out of suspension or solution, and collecting air in the pressure sensing lines (which causes measurement errors). The Sealed

Metering System specifically solves this problem. We have applied it in clean water flows where a vacuum condition

Bid Variant- with or without "or equal". As the second is the mostcommon,it will

be discussed in greater detail. Pre-selection

Pre-selection is utilized frequently in Ontario to procure major equipment. In

pre-selection, the consultant develops a performance specification on a given piece of equipment. The terms and con ditions dictate that prices must be held firm, usually for six months. Equipment vendors are advised that the successful

contractor must "carry" the pre-selected

vendor's equipment with the identical price, terms and conditions, offered at the time of pre-selection tendering. At no time is there a contract or purchase order between the owner and equipment vendor. Pre-selection is only a statement

Specifying equipment is a complex biend of economics and engineering.

The municipal wastewater equipment supplier tries to

service the industry satisfac torily through meticulous at tention to the following: • a competitively-priced quality product, • reasonable delivery, • responsive field service,

• strong marketing and sales, and • competent product design and application assistance. They all make good business sense. But today, attention to these is not enough. Other factors are involved that

ers and engineers to specify the quality

equipment they want. They may well end up with lower quality, poorer serv ice, substandard performance and shorter life expectancy. Available procurement methods Generally, seven procedures are now used by owners/consultants to obtain municipal wastewater equipment: i. Pre-purchase

that pre-selection offers several benefits and we encourage its use, but it has hmitations and may be applicable only to certain equipment. Possible advantages of this procurement format • Direct evaluation.

Environmental Science cfe Engineering, January 1999


Equipment Selection, conf not enforced, probably to allow the most flexibility to the con tractors that are bidding. For the most part, contractors should provide information on who their subconti^actors and major equip ment suppliers are at the time of bid. Often, the contractors will not disclose which supplier is being carried, or don't have to. This, of course, allows the contractor to keep his purchasing options open. Consultants and owners should not encourage this to occur, as it is an unfair business practice. 4.Post bid shopping. We cannot understand why contractors are allowed to decide after the bid what equipment they will purchase. In post bid shopping, the contractor can force equipment suppli ers to drop their prices by encouraging fighting among them. This is an unfair practice as the equipment price should be finalized at bid closing, and not after. The owners often never see any benefit from post-bid shopping; in fact they may get inferior equipment that was not specified. Because the contractor's bid is already fixed, this practice results in increased profits for the contractors. The 'moment of truth' for the supplier occurs when the con tractor is ready to purchase the equipment. Then,intense negotia tion usually takes place, with only the contractor benefiting from the competition. Since the rules on the provision for alternatives are very vague, and since they are not listed in the tender, the contractor is free to shop around after the contract is awarded. The contractor may be able to improve his margin by submitting equipment vendors that the owner/consultant has never heard of, by claiming that the vendors meet the interest of the specification. Post bid shopping certainly creates the potential for and al most always ensures reduced project quality. 5.Packaging. Packaging occurs when equipment suppliers group several pieces of equipment together in a single package and price to contractors. Some of the main pieces might conform with the specifications, but some may be complete alternatives. This is often an undesirable situation for contractors, owners and con

sultants, who feel they are being forced to accept an all or nothing situation, and this forces out some of the equipment suppliers who may be smaller or more specialized and cannot put an entire sys tem together. Recommendations

It is difficult to solve all these problems, but surprisingly, many ofthem could be addressed. The following recommendations were developed with considerable input from the Ontario Pollution Control Equipment Association members: 1. Screen contractors for sound financial situation and previous experience. 2. Improve the enforcement of the specifications. 3. Implement a new, suggested tender format where pre selection is not required. We beheve this last item, number 3, will go a long way in im proving the current tender practices and conditions. The improved Form of Tender, which the OPCBA recommends, realizes exist

ing system advantages, while encouraging competitive bidding. It also results in a lower contract price to the owner, and is not restrictive.

It utilizes a mechanism for alternatives to be bid, but only as alternatives and not substituting the named equipment. We be lieve that alternatives have their place, but they should be evalu ated properly. With the common form of tender currently used, the contractor holds the equipment supplier "hostage" with the threat of submitting a cheaper alternative; this is perfectly allow able under the current format provisions, with no or little benefit to the owner.

By Bob Willcocks* When a burner or burning system can provide a 98% destniction efficiency, the Approvals Branch does not require an emission dispersion calculation that shows that the system meets the control led limit of 30|ag/m'; it is assumed that the dispersion requirements are satisfied. On the other hand, it is possible in many cases to meet the dispersion re quirements without providing the 98% destruction efficiency, although the Ap provals Branch has been reluctant to accept something less than 98% except in specific cases. The MOE uses an EPA model for dispersion modelling

Where pressure was sufficient, the flames could extend at some height above the burner and the efficiency was reasonable although it was well below the 98% level. Enclosed Flares

of treatment plants have had 'en closed flare' waste gas incinera tors installed because of a percep tion that this technology is essen tial to obtain air approvals from the Ministry. The manufacturers of the enclosed flare hardware

have demonstrated that they can meet the 98+% destruction effi

ciency. It has become clear more recently, however, that this tech nology experiences difficulties in some operating environments. If the technology is um-eliable, there may be no advantage over the ef ficiency provided by other, more reliable, but less efficient equip

Burning Efficiency Burning equipment operates with two different forms of efficiency within the parameters under discussion. Boil ers and similar equipment have an effi ciency related to energy input in the form of a fuel as compared to the actual ben eficial energy output which is generally measured as heat. In some cases the

heating efficiency may be relatively low. The Ontario MOE regulates the buming of 'processed organic waste' which includes digester gas and landfill gases (garbage) as well as gaiEage incinera tors within the same broad regu latory definition. Air Approvals guidelines refer to 'destruction' efficiency which relates to the physical breakdown of the gas components in the burner into more acceptable chemical fonus. A high destruction efficiency is required with some forms of or ganic waste to avoid the produc tion of 'hazardous' emissions

which can occur through poor ef ficiency burning equipment. It is well recognized that digester gas is produced by biological ac tivity and it will contain specific components as the result of the biological process. Hazardous emissions are not anticipated from the burning of digester gas but the regulations were not writ ten to differentiate the fuel sources.

Anaerobic Digestion, conr The enclosed flare systems also use sup plemental natural gas to give the re quired temperatures. Destruction effici encies between the two systems vary because of the residence time in the burner.

The new style open burner destruc tion efficiency is approximately 90% at its rated gas flow volume as compared to 99.999% in the enclosed flare. As

of waste gas may be required. As a re sult, the incinerator can sit for periods of time at ambient outside air tempera tures. When it is necessary to fire the burner at low air temperatures, the in cinerator temperature is raised very rap

New Septic Tank Regulations

Ontario's regulatory changes affecting smaller on-slte sewage systems

Mostsewage in Ontario is

i

treated in municipal sew age systems that dis charge into water bodies such as streams and lakes. These sys tems are regulated by the Ministry of

ity of the Ontario Water Resources Act (OWRA). However, approximately twenty-five percent of Ontario house holds are served by on-site sewage sys tems that rely on discharge to below the surface of the soil. Subsurface sewage systems are regulated under Part VIII of the Environmental Protection Act

(EPA).

Septic tank systems account for the majority of Part VIII regulatory activ ity. However, Part VIII actually covers eleven different classes of sewage sys tems for sewage disposal in areas with out full municipal services. These classes are:(I) privies, composting toi lets, etc.;(2)leaching pits;(3)cesspools; (4) septic tank systems; (5) holding tanks; (6) aerobic systems; (7) hauled sewage systems; (8) systems on vehi cles; (9) systems involving more than one property; (10) shallow-buried trench-based systems; and (II), defined as septic, holding tank and aerobic sys tems capable of handling flows of more than 4,500 litres a day (equivalent to the flow from two single-family homes). Sewage systems not falling into any of these classes are deemed "unclassi

fied" systems because they are not cur rently covered by prescribed standards. Unclassified systems must be approved by MOE. Currently, the regulatory responsibil ity for approving and inspecting Part VIII sewage systems rests with MOE. However, for all but unclassified sys tems, MOE contracts program deliveiy to local agents under agreement. In most cases, these delivery agents are boards of health, but conservation authorities

and municipalities also deliver the pro gram.

The enforcement of sewage system standards includes issuing certificates of approval(C of As) and use permits for new systems; handling complaints and 'Ministry of Municipai Affairs and Housing 96

The legislation implementing these decisions was introduced on January 20, 1997. Bill 107, the Sewage and Water ServicesImprovementAct, dealt not only with Part VIII, but also with the transfer

in relation to most classified sewage sys tems, while upper-tier municipalities would be responsible for large sewage systems (those with a capacity of more than 4,500 litres per day). The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH)would have been responsible for standards enforcement in unorgan ized territory in northern Ontario, but could enter into agreements with other persons or bodies to deliver the pro gram. MOE would retain responsibil ity for regulating unclassified systems. Through Bill 107, the Government first signalled its intention to establish quali fications for sewage system inspectors

that responsibility for sewage system inspection and approvals be transferred from MOE and its delivery agents to municipalities and that the function be delivered on a full cost-recovery basis. The Panel said that while there should

be a broader provincial interest in en suring minimum health and environ mental quality standards, the use of onsite sewage systems as a means of treat ing sewage is a municipal matter. It also felt that municipalities might realize efficiencies if they chose to com bine sewage system inspections and ap provals with other municipal inspections and approvals. The Panel noted that there would need to be special consid

Part VIII of the EPA.

In general, Schedule B of Bill 152 provides authority for the regulation of smaller on-lot sewage systems to be re moved from the EPA (including the rel evant changes proposed in Bill 107)and incorporated in the Building Code Act (BCA). Further, responsibility for en forcing standards for smaller on-lot sew age systems in northern municipalities and unorganized areas will be assigned to boards of health and conservation authorities to ensure continued and ef

fective delivery while northern Ontario service delivery options are being con sidered.

The intent of the legislative change is to enable municipalities to provide one-window service to the public since municipalities are responsible for en forcement of the BCA and its regula tions, the Ontario Building Code(OBC). Rather than dealing with two pieces of legislation,two regulations,two permits, two appeals processes and two minis tries, the public, enforcement agencies and industry can deal with one in future.

Municipal responsibility The BCA makes lower-tier munici

BCA does allow, however, munici

palities to delegate enforcement in rela tion to sewage systems to upper-tier municipalities, boards of health or con servation authorities by agreement. This would be the case except in those pre scribed areas in northern Ontario where

boards of health or conservation authori

ered by the OEG. Ontario Building Code regulations Under the EPA, MOE issued regulations which dealt with

the design, construction and operation of sewage systems. These regulations were included in O. Reg. 358. In transfer ring the regulatory provisions for on-site sewage systems into the Building Gode, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing took Regulation 358 and generally incorporated it into the OEG. Where necessary, however, the regulations were changed to achieve conformity with the stracture of the Building Gode or to reflect the results of the Ministry of En vironment's surmner 1997 consultation on its regulations. The 1997 Building Gode, including the new provisions

related to on-site sewage systems,came into force on April 6, 1998.

Several parts of the OEG have been amended to bring in the new requirements related to sewage systems. Part 1 of the Building Gode includes new definitions which relate to sewage systems. This includes defining sewage systems to be covered by the Gode and other technical terms which were previously included in Regulation 358. Part 2 of the OEG has been amended to address adminis

Class 5 Sewage Systems The Class 5 sewage systems (hold ing tanks) are addressed somewhat dif ferently under the OBC than is currently the situation with the EPA and its regu lations, While Regulation 358 includes detailed standards for holding tanks, the MOE policy was to restrict the use of such systems except under limited cir cumstances, e.g., as a temporary opera

tion pending the provision of full mu nicipal services or to upgrade a sub standard system. The BCA and OBC, as compared to the EPA and its regulations, do not rely on additional policies, guidelines and procedures. This is one of the most fun damental differences between the two 7'6"(2.29ra)

regulatory regimes. Under the OBC, therefore. Class 5 sewage systems are prohibited,except under limited circum stances set out in the Code, e.g., where: •the proposed use of the system will not exceed 12 months;

•an extension of an existing dwelling is proposed provided that the dwelling is already served by a Class 5 system and the extension will not increase the

wastewater load; • an unsafe situation needs to be reme

diated and use of a Class 4 system is impracticable; • an upgrade to a sewage system on an existing lot is proposed and use of a Class 4 system is not possible due to lot size or clearance limitations; or When it comes to concrete piping, who says length isn't important?

systems that pose a hazard - there are also important differences which had to be accounted for in developing the new regulations. Perhaps the most important differ ence between the BCA and EPA relates

to the amount of discretion that approv ing authorities have to refuse permission to construct. Under the BCA, a chief

building official has no discretion to refuse to issue a permit for proposed construction that complies with the Act, the OBC and applicable law (e.g., zon ing) and limited discretion to authorize alternatives to achieving the objectives of prescribed requirements. Under Part Vni of the EPA,however,

an approving authority has broad discre tion to refuse a certificate of approval on the grounds that the proposed sew age system would create a nuisance to adjacent property owners, pose a haz ard to human health or safety, impair the quality of the natural environment or be contrary to the public interest. Likewise, a board of health or conservation author

ity has considerable authority to impose standards which vary from those set out in the regulations. Conclusion

The Ministry provided training and exam writing opportunities for approxi mately 800 individuals throughout March and early April 1998, in cities across Ontario, The course curriculum

focuses on the new legislation and regu lations, design and construction require ments for all classes of sewage system (with significant emphasis on Class 4 systems), site assessment,treatment unit design, new technologies, etc. The course and exam questions were devel oped by a multi-stakeholder working group which was assisted by a consult ing team led by the environmental firm of Gartner Lee,

In August 1998, a Self Teaching Manualfor On-Site Sewage Systems was distributed to installers and inspectors across the province to assist those peo ple wishing to prepare for the examina tion, In September and October, exam writing opportunities were offered in several cities and more training courses ai'e being offered across Ontario during the winter.

Geoscientists seeking independent act in Ontario

The Association of Geosci

ment and of considerable concern to all

its predecessors, have been working with Professional Engineers Ontario(PEO)since 1989 to establish a combined licensure regime under the Professional Engineers Act. This follows the well-established pre cedents in other provinces and territo ries in Canada. The concept of a com bined licensure model was originally agreed to by PEO Council in Septem ber 1996. In September 1997, the pro posed amendments to the Act were passed by PEO Council and shortly thereafter were submitted to the govern ment for legislative consideration. However, in February 1998, as a re sult of opposition from "Engineers for Engineers", PEO conducted a member ship referendum on incorporation of geoscientists under the amended Profes sional Engineers Act. The results were negative, with 60.8% of the engineers who voted opposed to including geo

geoscientists and engineers who have worked diligently over the last eight years to move this licensure proposal forward,including participation in three major Task Forces sponsored by PEO. The initiative had strong support from many in the engineering community who work closely with geoscientists, including the Consulting Engineers of

Surveying & Engineering

By Sarah J. Cornett, O.L.S.*

Ontario's surveyors are plotting a new era of change

Ontario surveyors are poised

for a new era of change which has historical links

with the engineering pro fession.

The foundation for this transition was

set more than a hundred years ago through the energy and foresight of Willis Chipman, who was a founding member of the Association of Ontario

Land Surveyors, the Engineering Insti tute of Canada and Professional Engi neers of Ontario. He holds the distinc

tion of being remembered as the prov ince's first consulting engineer. The ver satile Chipman was to earn a Canadianwide reputation for both his water and wastewater treatment systems.

Chipman played a leading role in es tablishing the Association of Provincial Land Surveyors of Ontario(APLSO)in 1886, later incorporated in 1892. The APLSO went on to become the Asso

ciation of Ontario Land Surveyors (AOLS). When it was established in 1886, the association included many Deputy Registrar, Association of Ontario Land Surveyors Editor, The Ontario Land Surveyor

But other fields of survey ing encompassed in the broader defini tion of geomatics often attract special ists who are not professional surveyors. They hold no legal responsibility to the public for the work they do. The AOLS is working to expand its membership to include specialists from these related disciplines; they are generally referred to as geographic information managers. Existing legislation of the AOLS per mits the addition of a new professional designation surrounding geographic in formation activities. Experienced indi viduals directly involved with geodata, or with information technology related to geography and land management(but focusing on geodata), could be eligible for professional designation under the GIM branch of the AOLS. The exper tise of the GIM Professional, along with the professionalism of AOLS members will help move the Association forward

fell within the interest of that commit

tee. Even today, surveyors and engi neers work together to build, and re build, these infrastructure systems. Since the early years of establishing the framework for governing professional suiweyors and engineers in Ontaiio, en gineers and surveyors have tended to es tablish their own fields of expertise and practice, even with frequent common in terest on public works and private sector projects. With the establishment and development of new technology for mapping and assessments for construc tion projects, the distinction between engineering and surveying sometimes is not so clear.

Water and Wastewater Monitoring

Star Wars monitoring for BOD?

In a UK research project that might revolutionise water and waste-

water quality monitoring, the University of Hertfordshire's Water Engineering Research Group has developed a laser system which could make the tried and tested 100-year-old means of measuring 'five day' Bio chemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) obsolete.

"Potential applications for this new technology ai-e enonnous and could push back the frontiers of detection, monitor

ing and control technologies well into the next millennium," said Dr. Darren

Reynolds,pait ofthe university's research group responsible for developing the sys tem. "When perfected, this method could provide a major contribution to science, by enabling potential water pollution events to be detected before they become problems, benefiting both consumers and the environment."

The standard BOD test, designed to measure the oxygen demand ofrivers and lakes receiving significant quantities of

biodegradable organic material, usually takes five days, making it unsuitable for instant online monitoring. In an attempt to combat the problem, a series of 'wet chemical' techniques to measure pollution levels have been de veloped and introduced. These include monitoring Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)and Total Organic Carbon(TOC). "Although these tests are faster than the traditional BOD one, they are unable to differentiate between biodegradable and non-biodegradable matter, making true online monitoring and control impossi ble," said Dr. Reynolds. His university's latest development could provide an ex tremely valuable additional contribution to improving the environment,he claims. "Illumination of water by optical ra diation causes hght scattering and tests have indicated that there is a dnect coire-

lation between this phenomenon and water quality," he explained. "Recent re search has demonstrated that using these unusual properties can improve the de tection of both organic and inorganic pol

lutants in potable and waste waters. In our research 'noiTnalised' fluorescence

intensities have been successfully used to predict long and short-teim variations in BOD from both industrial and domestic

wastewater samples. As light scattering can be easily initiated and detected by la sers, the technique is also applicable for determining the nitrate levels in potable water by the use of differential absorp tion," said Dr. Reynolds. Because of its 'real time' capabilities, use of the light scattering principle could save up to five days in identifying a po tential problem through the use of noninvasive sensors located at key water supply points. Online monitoring of both water and wastewater quality in real time could be developed to imple ment an international network of remote

'star wars'-type sensors designed to re lay water quality back to a central col lection point. Perhaps in the future it could be linked directly to the Internet system,providing instant access for both developed and developing countries. ❖
