You can maneuver around the sinkholes by specifying precast concrete pipe. It's strong, durable and made to last. And you won't have to depend on soil support for the structural integrity of the pipeline. Don't fall for the short-lived claims and failed promises of flexible pipe products.

Editorial

Engineering - now it's time for the write stuff

Some years ago I was taken on a

tour of one of our leading envi ronmental consulting compa nies. Photographs of bridges, treatment plants, highways and other projects adorned the walls, all palpable examples of the consulting engineer's role in upgrading our standards of liv ing. But I also noted bookshelves which were groaning under the weight of reports, studies and proposals. The noun library at this firm was certainly not an oxymoron.

It was here that my host asked me what I thought of his engineering com pany. Not entirely seriously I said it was a great publishing enterprise. He was taken aback. I jokingly pointed out that I saw no lathes, milling machines or other appurtenances common to engineering manufacturing, but noted

public knows little about these values. All too frequently, engineering reti cence is the culprit here. But by not writing about the social and health benefits of their profession, engineers have yielded their field to articulate ignoramuses. Almost every segment of engineer ing, from proposals, specifications and final reports involves writing quite a lot of writing in fact - yet, until recently, there has been little emphasis on writing tuition at university engi neering schools. In my opinion, writer's block - common in so-called

creative writing - could be expensive in consulting offices. Added to this are the ongoing battles for public opinion. Here, too often, the engineering pro fession regrettably has played a mea ger role in the spate of articles bylined

lytical chemistry and public health reg ulations. Eloquence so often became a veil to cover scientific ignorance. During conventional television interviews, adjectival designations appeared at the bottom of TV screens which identified the qualifications or professions of participants such as bro kers, lawyers, airline pilots and so on. Yet the label environmentalist also

became common, adding dignity and credibility to complex debates while giving status to a noun with no legal standing whatsoever. Years earlier, one uncredentialed protester gained national headlines when he said environmental engineers, in their quest for better treatment modes, had an Iron Ring Mentality.

FEEDBACK Re: November 2003 Editorial Dear Tom:

I have read your editorials for a long time but I have yet to agree with you on your perception of environmental ists and lawyers. Very little was done to protect the environment until envi ronmentalists put forth the issues and forced governments to do something. Organisations like Greenpeace may exaggerate some issues but at least they get governments doing something which is more than most professional organisations can claim. That is why I support Greenpeace. Universities even formed Departments of Environmental Engineering. I have worked with lawyers that have not only engineering degrees but also PhDs and I know that they are able to understand environ mental issues.

Unfortunately in today's world some people and governments only lis ten when they go to court and that is why I also support the Sierra Legal Fund. One could just as easily say that someone with only a Bachelors Degree in Engineering is not able to under stand the intricacies of some environ mental issues. This would also be con

sidered an insult by most engineers but is this previous statement true or false? I think that you must stop and think for a minute who designed and built all of our polluting factories, exhaust pro ducing cars, and leaking landfill sites before you put all the blame on envi ronmentalists and lawyers. G. Elliott Whitby, Ph.D., Research

many actions by certain groups quite literally stopped the implementation of new environmental technologies which would have been beneficial. As for lawyers, you must have skipped over the paragraph in which I noted that lawyers "have added con siderable technical and scientific knowledge to their legal weaponiy and have emerged as significant andformi dable players in afield, long dominat ed by engineers and chemists." I later quoted Dr. Johnson when he defined the essential role of lawyers, praising them and saying: "A lawyer is to dofor his client all that he mightfairly dofor himself." Currently, some 125 garbage trucks are daily belching their way from Toronto to Michigan which is increas ingly becoming reluctant to take Toronto's garbage. This absurdly expensive and environmentally delete rious situation certainly did not emanate from the engineering profes sion. Finally, many of the problems emanated from, or were exacerbated by, poor reporting by the news media. That's right. My guys were often culpa ble in some of the absurd political decisions which made worse many of the environmental problems and pre vented implementation of innovative environmental solutions.

Finally, I stress that I am not an engineer. If I were to change profes sions, the law would, be my next choice. Thanks for your letter. - Tom Davey,

tional is that it does not have a contract

The media has been a willing accomplice in this with its erroneous coverage, which gave Canadians the impression that resi dents of Kirkland Lake were opposed to the Adams Mine serving as a land fill and spreading the "anti" myth that the pit will leak. Nothing could be fur ther from the truth.

I do find it ironic that the opposi tion to the Adams Mine Landfill, pre dominantly from outside our area, who portrayed themselves as environmen talists that so vehemently opposed shipping Toronto waste by rail to the Adams Mine Landfill, remains mum

Study on low-pressure membrane fouling

Atlantic Canada's first

low-pressure membrane system

The city of St. John's, Newfoundland, has chosen USFilter to provide an 18.5 million gallon per day (70 MLD) Memcor® continuous microfiltration, submerged (CMF-S) system. This

USFilter's North American Technology Center (NATC), CH2M HILL, the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Colorado and the University of Poitiers in Poitiers, France, will conduct the study. "This research study will greatly improve our understanding of mem brane fouling, which will result in defining better site-specific fouling control strategies through appropriate membrane selection, as well as effec tive pretreatment and cleaning," says Jerome Leparc, research engineer with the NATC's drinking water division. Participating utilities include the Tampa Bay Regional Surface Water Treatment Plant and the Indianapolis Water Treatment Plant. The plants will

host pilot studies, offering a range of water qualities for testing the fouling tration membranes.

During the study, the research team will investigate conditions contribut ing to NOM fouling of these low-pres sure membrane systems. Researchers will also examine and quantily the impacts of NOM fouling on the micro filtration and ultrafiltration systems, using various pretreatment conditions and water qualities. Fouling occurs in all pressure-driv en membrane processes and can often limit implementing a full-scale mem brane system. Although many types of materials accumulate on membranes

during drinking water treatment processes, NOM fouling can cause irreversible accumulation, leading to

long-term flux decline. To date, little research has been done on natural

organic matter and membrane interac tions in low-pressure systems because researchers used to think water-soluble

molecules passed through microfiltra tion and ultrafiltration membranes.

STORMWATER? NO PROBLEM .-JKsaii

Because waste water

comes in many forms, so do KSB impellers.

The Hycor® ROMAG Stormwater Screen is a fine bar screen designed specifically for combined sewer, sanitary sewer overflows and storm sewer outfaUs. It is available in various

configurahons, and can handle flows from 219 to 4381+ L/s (5 to 100+ MGD.) The solids and floatables retained by the ROMAG are diverted to the wastewater treatment plant to eliminate solids handling at the screen site. The ROMAG is self-activating, self-cleaning, flexible, safe, automatic and energy efficient. It is an economical method of handling stormwater,and is ideal for remote locations.

Bennett seeks approval for contaminated soil

treatment facility A 180-day public review process began on November 27, 2003, for an air quality operating approval, applied for by Bennett Environmental. The company plans to operate a High Temperature Thermal Oxidizer treatment facility in Belledune, New

Brunswick, which will treat about 100,000 tonnes per year of non-chlori

nated hydrocarbon and creosoteimpacted soils and solid materials. The Public Participation Regu lation, under the Clean Air Act, calls

for a public participation process to be conducted prior to the issuance of Approvals to Operate for "Class 1 sources" of emissions.

The process covers air quality relat-

ed issues including questions or com ments regarding air emissions, pollu tion control equipment, conditions proposed in the draft approval, moni toring and reporting requirements, and enforcement and compliance informa tion. Non-air related inquires received during the process are directed to staff of the Department of the Environment and local government, or to other gov ernment agencies or facilities for response.

Ontario municipality fined for failing to report water samples The Corporation of the Township of Centre Wellington has been fined a total of $11,000, plus a 25-percent vic tim fine surcharge, after pleading guilty to three counts relating to the operation of waterworks in Fergus and Elora.

The Court heard that the Corpo ration did not immediately report adverse water quality results for a sam ple taken from the Elora water distri bution system and for a second sample taken from the Fergus water distribu tion system. Both samples were col lected in August 2002 and were found to have low chlorine residuals, an indi cation of adverse water quality. Under Section 8 of Regulation 459/00 the owner of a water treatment or distribu

tion system is required to ensure that immediate notice is given if there is an indicator of adverse water quality; the notice must be confirmed in writing within 24 hours.

Reviewing Manitoba's environmental

sustainability initiatives

Since 1999, the Manitoba gov ernment has undertaken a num

ber of initiatives designed to promote environmental sus tainability and water protection, including: • Building scientific knowledge: This includes completing the Assiniboine River Study on the health of the river, as well as the nutrient management study on the health of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers and the south basin

of Lake Winnipeg. In addition, Manitoba water quality standards, objectives and guidelines have been updated to become among the most comprehensive frameworks in the nation for water protection. • Stronger livestock regulations and monitoring: New regulations include requirements for all above ground stor age tanks, annual water sampling and the regulation of between 600 and 800 additional operations. Previously, only lagoons built after 1994 were inspect ed and regulated. The government has

enhanced staffing to support the inspection process and conduct on-site inspections. • Drinking water resources, infrastruc ture and legislation: To protect the quality of drinking water, subsidies for water tests have been re-introduced, new drinking water officers have been hired, a new office of drinking water has been established, $40 million has been invested in drinking water and sewer infrastructure, and new drinking water legislation has been passed to address issues from source to tap. • Actions to protect Lake Winnipeg: To begin the task of reducing nutrient lev els in Lake Winnipeg, new sewage and septic field regulations have been

passed and requirements have been introduced for septic field installers. In addition, a riparian tax credit is in effect and soil testing awareness pro grams have been introduced. Highlevel cross-border meetings have been held with North Dakota and Minnesota

officials. Nutrient management is also being built into environmental licens ing for municipal sewage treatment facilities. A Lake Winnipeg Steward ship Board has been established to fur ther actions to protect the lake. • E.xpanding Conservation Districts: These districts are based on local con

servation approaches to watershed management and have been expanded from nine to 16 across the province. ■

Warnings for the Homeowner,

Building Manager, Contractor

and

Real Estate

Industry

By Dr.Don Pinchin, Pinchin Environmental

Hundreds of thousands of Canadian homes, offices, banks and other buildings have vermiculite insulation

installed as ceiling and wall insulation. It is possible that much of this materi al is contaminated with potentially dangerous asbestos fibres. Both property managers and home owners need to put careful controls in place to prevent disturbance of the insulation. Careful removal should

precede any significant disturbance, for example, prior to renovations. Professionals involved in property assessments and transfers (building inspectors, real estate agents and bro kers, lawyers, mortgagors) should warn the prospective purchaser of the presence of vermiculite insulation and consider its potential impact on prop erty value. Sources of vermiculite insulation

Vermiculite is a mineral mined

around the world and used in a variety of commercial and consumer products. After crushing and processing, raw ore was shipped to many plants in Canada for exfoliation or expanding. At these plants, the ore was heated to about 1000°C, causing it to expand like popcorn into a lightweight granu lar material that is fire-resistant, absorbent, lightweight and a good insulator. Vermiculite has been and

continues to be used in a variety of building materials.

Of particular concern, due to the possible health hazards, was the use of vermiculite as a loose-fill insulation, almost all of which was sold under the

Zonolite tradename. Zonolite, made into a variety of insulation products, was used as a loose fill insulation

The Libby deposit was contaminat ed with an asbestos mineral usually identified as tremolite. Although W.R. Grace took increasing measures through the history of the operation to reduce the asbestos content in their

products, it is likely that most of their production contained at least a trace of free asbestos fibre. Once vermiculite was mixed with a

binder (as in concrete and plaster mixes, sprayed, fireproofing, etc.) it is unlikely to ever release significant air borne asbestos. The loose fill products do, however, pose a risk, causing sub stantial asbestos exposure when dis turbed.

building has proved to be an integral part of a remediation process for a site formally used to manufacture dynamite during World War II.

In 2001, WTI (WasteTron Inc.) was contracted by the Huntington District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to remediate a contaminated site to a hab

itable state. Plans included cleaning the site through a composting process to stabilize the soil to a safe and usable resource.

"Rather than the traditional meth

ods such as capping the contaminated areas, or sending the soil for incinera tion, our client decided to try a pilot program using bio-remediation. By composting the soil and letting nature's 'bugs' do the work, we have been able to remediate the soil below regulatory limits. The project is proving to be time-effective and cost-effective," says Ryan Wheeler, WTI spokesperson. WTI identified 'hot pockets' of

strategies,

Georgia Tech researchers have isolated

a naturally occurring bacterium, desig nated Dehalococcoides strain BAVl, in a pure culture - without other microbial species present in the sample. Though some progress was made in the past decade in understanding the bacteria involved in partial degrada tion of PCE and TCE, this study repre sents a significant advance, the re searchers said.

"Isolating this bacterium will allow us to study the organism and the dechlorination process in more detail," said lead researcher Frank Loeffler, an assistant professor in the School of

tion in Oscoda, Michigan. There, researchers recently used BAVl in a successful pilot demonstration, which they briefly reference in the Nature paper. Loeffler and his colleagues described the results of the pilot study in greater detail in a paper published in February 2003 in Environmental Science & Technology. At this contaminated site, PCE pen etrated the water table and contaminat

ed drinking-water wells in the area. The contaminants also migrated through the groundwater into nearby Lake Huron.

In 14-feet by 16-feet, 20-feet-deep test plots at the Bachman Road site, researchers compared a non-treated control section to two bioremediation

approaches using BAVl, which al ready occurs at this site in low num bers. One strategy, called biostimulation, added lactate and nutrients to the contaminated plot. In another section, researchers injected a mixed culture containing high numbers of BAVl, along with nutrients in a strategy called bioaugmentation. This tech nique resulted in complete dechlorina tion of PCE to ethene within six

weeks. Biostimulation, on the other hand, worked but took more time to

accomplish detoxification.

"Bioaugmentation had a relatively

Site Remediation reported in Nature revealed that the growth of BAVl depends strictly on the reduction of these chlorinated com

pounds (e.g., dichloroethenes and vinyl chloride) to ethene and the pres ence of hydrogen as an electron donor. Also, genetic analyses, analytical chemistry techniques and high-resolu tion scanning electron microscopy yielded information about the organ ism's appearance, make-up and behav ior.

belongs to the only-recently discov ered Dehalococcoides group, which comprises other organisms useful in bioremediation. The findings highlight the largely untapped reservoir of bac terial diversity, Loeffler added. BAVl's origin is unknown, though Loeffler believes it evolved long ago, deriving energy from naturally occur ring chlorinated compounds, including

"Organisms like BAVl have an enormous potential to help detoxify chlorinated pollutants," Loeffler said. "But we're just at the beginning of understanding their function, distribu tion and ecology in the environment."

This technique uses a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PGR)device to test field sites.

Loeffler is hopeful about the use of BAVl and related organisms in biore mediation. He speculates that this group of bacteria might also be useful to treat sites contaminated with polychlorinated dibenzo-dioxins (PCDDs)

and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

Full price costing is vital to restore and maintain our infrastructure By Sam Morra, Executive Director, Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction

Even as we raised alarm bells, events were in motion that would rivet

Much of our core infrastruc

ture of sewers, watermains, roads, bridges, electrical power and transit are com

ing to the end of their life cycle. Ontario is on the verge of a new era of renewed commitment to water and

sewage infrastructure. This era should be characterized by high public confi dence in the safety of its drinking water, the timely reconstruction of aging facilities and an understanding and acceptance by all that the financial sustainability of our water and sewage systems is paramount. Currently, estimates put the value of Ontario's municipal water and sewage infrastructure at over $60 billion.

About $40 billion of that total repre sents the underground pipe and pre cast. Although there was significant money spent in the past, today, our sys tems are simply deteriorating faster than they are being replaced. Infrastructure disrepair manifests

national attention on the small south western Ontario town of Walkerton in

the spring of 2000, which became a tragedy that none of us could have foreseen.

In addition to full cost pricing, OSWCA's nine-step plan advocated transitional assistance for municipali ties, the establishment of dedicated water and sewage reserve accounts, and a number of other provisions to enhance accountability. When action shifted to Queen's Park for a legislative battle that result ed in the passage of Bill 175, OSWCA was front and centre in proposing amendments to the initial bill. We formed a coalition with the Ontario

Concrete Pipe Association, Consulting Engineers of Ontario, Pollution Probe, Universal Workers Local 183, Council of Ontario Construction Associations

and the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper. Bill 175, the Sustainable Water and Sewage Systems Act, increases munic ipal accountability and transparency by mandating all municipalities to con

duct condition assessment studies and

leaking watermains which not only impair the ability of chlorine to proper ly disinfect the water but also cost about $150 million every year in lost drinking water. In addition, old com bined storm and sanitary sewer sys tems end up flooding basements, pol luting our rivers and lakes and closing

build up the funds needed to deal with on-going maintenance, repair and the eventual replacement of their water and sewage infrastructure. Because it enshrines the principle of full cost pricing and full cost recov ery in legislation for the first time ever, Bill 175 represents a real breakthrough for the long-term sustainability of Ontario's water and sewage systems. We see three major regulations that still need to be developed:

There are many reasons for infra structure neglect but by far the most apparent is the long-standing practice of undercharging for water and sewage services. While they are a municipal responsibility in Ontario, provincial and federal subsidies played a signifi cant role in building the systems. Unfortunately, municipalities have used these subsidies to create artifi

cially low water rates instead of setting

36 Environmental Science & Engineering,January 2004

â&#x20AC;˘ First, we believe the province should set a deadline for municipal compli ance with the full cost pricing policy, phasing in the concept over a five to eight year period. â&#x20AC;˘ Second, the province needs to clearly define full cost pricing, so consumers and municipalities will know exactly what they are paying for and keep con sumer buy-in high by ensuring that everyone is on a level playing field; and,

â&#x20AC;˘ Third, the regulations must make water metering mandatory across the province. Metering is the most effec tive way to track leakage and con sumption while allowing consumers to see how much water they are using rel ative to its cost.

Even before the Walkerton tragedy, our research was showing a very high consumer buy-in to full cost pricing. In June 2000 we found that over 90 per

cent of the public were in favour of a law requiring municipalities to create dedicated water and sewage reserve funds - with 65% saying it was "very necessary". Over 80 per cent were also willing to pay more on their water bill. Our sense is that polling results today would show even stronger sup port for the notion that we have to pay more to safeguard our drinking water. Tragedies in Walkerton, Ontario, and North Battleford, Saskatchewan, plus the almost daily media coverage on broken watermains and new drinking water hazards across the country, are finally driving home the drastic need for change. Moving the Sustainable Water and Sewage Systems Act forward promptly and decisively will be a crucial test for the new Ontario Liberal government. Stakeholders will be watching for sig nals. In the absence of any indication from the new government to the con trary, we have every reason to believe it is full speed ahead. The first indica tion is the lightning quick move it made to lift the artificial cap on the price of residential electricity. If this move is in any way indicative of the Liberal philosophy on full cost pricing, then the argument for applying a simi lar approach to water and sewage rates becomes that much stronger.


Water/Wastewater Infrastructure In 2002, the feds announced the

Canadian Strategic Infrastructure Fund to target larger projects over $50M in value across the country. In Ontario, the city of Kingston, for example, was a beneficiary of this pro gram for their sewage forcemain and related works across the Cataraqui River.

We anticipate a surge in water and sewage projects as a result of Bill 175's implementation over the next several years; many will be located in highly urbanized older areas where there are a growing number of utilities found in our crowded municipal rights of ways. OSWCA has been a leader regarding utility issues and more specifically, the use of Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE). It is a winwin investment for municipalities con templating underground construction work.

SUE is a method for recording and presenting information on buried underground utilities, combining tra ditional civil engineering utility data collection and depiction methods with new computer and optic technologies that have evolved over the past two decades. In early 2003, the American Society of Civil Engineers published a Standard for SUE, referenced as CI/ASCE 38-02.

SUE is used primarily by munici palities and road authorities in plan ning and design to determine appropri ate locations for new water, sewage and road infrastructure by pinpointing the existing underground utilities ex pected to be encountered in subsurface construction projects. Utility locates on the other hand, are responses by the owners of under ground utility services that may be present at a proposed excavation site. The utility owners provide on site markings, sketches and other sources of information that attempt to identify the location of the buried utility works. While it is beneficial and desirable for the excavator to be informed of the horizontal and vertical location of util

ity works as well as the composition and the type of structure involved, most Ontario based utilities only pro vide limited information on the hori

zontal location of the anticipated utili ty and provide little or no information on diameter, depth, composition or the type of structure to be encountered. In the US, at least 40 state depart

ments of transport are using SUE to sort through the subsurface congestion under their highways. An example of savings from the use of SUE was in a recent Maryland highway project that involved a road widening. Data gath ered through SUE showed that about a mile of telephone, water and sewer lines were in conflict with the pro posed road project. With SUE data in hand, designers were able to make slight changes to the construction design that avoided the relocation of all but 400 ft of the underground utili ties, saving an estimated $1.3 (US) million dollars. The cost of using SUE on the project was about $56,000, a return on investment of about 2,300 percent. In Toronto, the recent use of SUE

on a watermain project a few kilome ters from a fatal explosion site appar ently revealed a 50mm gas main that was not shown by the gas company on drawings circulated by the city. The repercussions could have been signifi cant.

The US Federal Highway Admini stration commissioned Purdue Univer

sity to study the effectiveness of SUE as a means of reducing costs and delays on highway projects. The inves tigation included 71 separate projects across four states, having a total value of more than $1 billion. The study con cluded an average of $4.62 was saved in construction costs for every $1.00 spent on SUE. Those savings are for the construction costs only and do not include the dollar savings and reduced damages for local utility services and any unrecoverable losses for contractors. The OSWCA has been communi

cating with municipalities, and various provincial and federal government agencies, including the Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Energy, and the Technical Standards and Safety Authority, about the importance of reliable utility mapping and locate in formation and the advantages and sav ings associated with the use of SUE. In conclusion, strong leadership and advocacy have brought Ontario to the brink of a new era in the way it uses, maintains and pays for its water and sewage infrastructure.

Highway No. 99 in British

Colombia represents the crit ical transportation route be tween the City of Vancouver and the Resort Municipality of Whistler, the sites of the 2010 Winter

Olympics. After years of study, public input and preliminary design by UMA Engineering Limited, the existing route was divided into various sections

and awarded to consulting teams for

detailed design assignments under the supervision of SNC Lavalin Inc. Detailed design for the 7.2 km road section between Culliton Bridge and Cheakumus Canyon (approximately a half hour drive north of Squamish and south of Whistler), was prepared by Earth Tech Canada Limited, widening the road to three lanes and straighten ing its vertical and horizontal align ment to improve driver safety. Conroy Creek, a mountain stream, home to a

resident population of Rainbow Trout, crosses Highway No. 99 in this section

of highway via an existing Multi-Plate Pipe Arch, measuring approximately 2.4m wide x 2.1m high. As part of the design process, Armtec provided pre-design technical support to Earth Tech by offering a Bridge-Plate cross-section shape suit able for the span, rise, cover and hydraulic end requirements for the crossing. To provide improved fish passage, the structure was designed to be on a flat gradient, having an open bottom arch design with a span of 10.247m and rise of 4.843m.

Infrastructure As part of the tender and quotation process, Armtec pre pared and distributed a set of preliminary installation and assembly drawings for a 30.08m long Bridge-Plate Structure along with a preliminary design for cast-in-plaee conerete footings and gravity end walls. Following award of the $18.2 million dollar construction contract to Bel

Contracting Limited, Armtec provided input on how the structure could be lengthened to reduce and/or eliminate the need for the end walls.

After detailed analysis by Bel and Armtec, the structure was lengthened to 33.68m and the upstream end wall was eliminated in favour of a rip-rap/non-woven geotextile (Armtec 350)slope and cast-in-place end collar. The down stream end was redesigned with a cast-in-place end collar in conjunction with Lock-Block wingwalls, reinforced with Armtec Mirafi 8XT Polyester Geogrid. Armtec retained McElhanney Consulting Services to offer detailed design and field certification services for the cast-in-place concrete footings, downstream end wall and upstream slope treatments. McElhanney also conducted an overall geometry check of how the roadway fill slopes tied

To armour the footings inside the structure without hav ing to place large boulders against the Bridge-Plate and risking damage, Bel installed 25kg rip-rap directly above the footings and pumped concrete into the voids. To mimic a natural stream bed, the design also called for the place ment of a 300mm thick layer of fish gravel above the rip rap layer.

Within four and a half days, Bel finished the majority of the backfill placement to approxi mately Im above the crown of the structure. The BridgePlate Structure was assembled, tightened and backfilled in under 10 working days, making it possible to finish the project by the fish window deadline. During the backfill process, Armtec provided eontinuous monitoring of the structure by installing six monitoring stations and logging chord measurements using a hand held electronic distance measurement(EDM)tool.

Inaccessible extensive green roofs at York University's Computer Science Building.

By Mark Hagesteijn and Sam Beckett, R.V. Anderson Associates

Green roofs, or vegetated

roofs, although relatively new in Canada, have been well established in several

European countries since the 1980s.

A typical green roof section con sists of a waterproofing membrane with root repellent, which is overlain with a drainage layer, filter membrane, and growing medium with vegetation. The growing medium is a soil mixture designed to be light, erosion resistant, permeable and has the ability to retain water to support the vegetation. •Accessible versus Inaccessible Green

For this project an inaccessible extensive green roof was selected to become part of the site's stormwater management solution. The green roof covered approximately

Intensive green roofs are character ized by their increased weight, increased cost, intensive planting and higher maintenance. The growing medium is typically 20 to 60 cm thick and due to the increased soil depth, the plant selection can be more diverse (including trees and shrubs). After the plants have been established, the green roofs will require regular maintenance and watering like a typical garden. Intensive green roofs are often designed as accessible roofs, because the increased soil depth allows a greater variety of landscape features, which could transform the roof into a

garden or park. There are numerous environmental

and several cost benefits of installing green roofs including: • Reduction of Urban Heat Island Effect - Typical roofs are hard, dark surfaces which re-radiate most of the

sun's energy as heat, resulting in a sig nificant increase in air temperature above the roof. Vegetated roof surfaces re-radiate only a small portion of the sun's energy as heat, resulting in a reduced increase in air temperature. The outside air temperatures will be further reduced due to the heat insula

tion properties of green roofs. This insulation property results in less ener gy being required to cool the building, which will result in less hot air being emitted from the mechanical cooling systems.

• Improvement ofAir Quality - Green roofs reduce outside air temperature during the summer, which reduces ris ing hot air, and thereby reduces the suspension of dust particles from the ground, hence improving air quality. continued overleaf...

Eco Architecture The air quality will be improved further by the vegetation's ability to filter the air, removing dust particles, and through photosynthesis when the vegetation converts carbon dioxide into oxygen. Also, the trapped air with in the plants, growing media and drainage panels will act as a heat insu lator, and the prevention of the sun's energy from making direct contact with the building roof, will reduce the building's internal temperature fluctu ations. This reduction in temperature fluctuation will reduce the energy required to heat and cool the buildings thereby reducing greenhouse gas emis sions. Green roofs could extend the life-

span of the roof membranes, because green roofs protect the membrane against ultra-violet radiation, extreme temperature fluctuations, and physical damage from roof maintenance or use. The increased lifespan reduces roof membrane replacements or repairs and thereby reduces waste sent to the com munity's landfill site. • Reduction of Stormwater Runoff Standard flat roofs with roof drain con

The results, which are expected in the spring of 2004, will be used by the City of Toronto to inter pret the benefits of green roofs over large urban areas. Green roofs are a relatively easy method to improve the aesthetics of a building. The improved building aes thetics will be valued the most by those residences or employees who can look down onto the green roof or visit an accessible green roof. Jobs will be created in design, growing, manufacturing, installation and ongoing maintenance of green roofs.

reduce the stress of urban living, which could lead to a healthier and more pro ductive community. The additional green space within a city could make an urban area more attractive to live in and could thereby reduce commuter traffic and related

greenhouse gas emissions. Green roofs can be designed to mimic different habitats but the type of habitat will depend on factors such as depth of growing medium, exposure and degree of irrigation. Also strategi cally located green roofs could connect isolated habitats and other green roofs by air, thereby creating wildlife corri dors for birds within urban areas.

An inaccessible extensive green roof with a 150mm thick growing medium covered with alpine grasses generally costs about $ 12/ft- more than a standard flat roof. This additional

cost excludes structural upgrades 42

green roofs is perceived as one of the main barriers which green roofs must overcome to become a standard prac tice in the roofing industry. Such costs would likely reduce as the use of green roofs increases.

For example, in Germany over 40% of the cities are now providing direct incentives and/or using regulations in support of green roof implementation. Some cities in Germany passed munic ipal by-laws which require the installa tion of green roofs on all flat-roofed industrial buildings, and other cities compensate builders up to $6.20/ft-for the green roof. These incentives and regulations resulted in the construction of 13.5 million square metres in 2001, which is up from the 9 million square metres constructed in 1994. Currently, about one in ten flat roofed buildings in Germany have green roofs. In Tokyo, law requires that all buildings with more than 1,000 m- of floor space need at least 20% of their roofs to be greened to counter the

conditions in cities.

When this is not incorporated during the design stage of the building, it could become an expensive modification to an exist ing building. However, once the building layout and structure are designed for future green roofs, the building owner will have the opportunity to gain the bene fits of the green roofs at a minimum cost when the City's incentives and/or regulations for green roofs are imple mented.

Highway Culvert

TransCanada

Highway served by concrete box culverts By Ryan Finley,P. Eng. and Khaled Nasery,E.l.T.

The TransCanada Highway is the world's longest national high

way, stretching 7,821 km. It is vital to Canada's economy that the highway be maintained without disruption and premature structural failures.

Use of precast concrete box units under the TransCanada Highway was based on past performance and the expected service life of precast reinforced concrete box culverts. At two crossings of the highway, one kilometre apart, cast-in-place double cell concrete box culverts were installed in 1955 to carry the flow of Hartell Creek. The culverts, locat ed east of Calgary, Alberta, near the Town of Strathmore, were extend ed across new eastbound lanes with arched structural plate corrugated steel pipe (SPCSP) when this section of the highway was twinned in 1974.

Replacement culverts had to meet a 75-year design life as specified in the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code(CHBDC).An advantage of precast box culverts was a better fit with the existing cast-in-place culvert.

Khaled Nasery, E.l.T. of Mish Engineering designed the culvert replacements under the supervision of Ash Morjaria, P.Eng. Mish Engineering presented Alberta Transportation with three different size pre-cast concrete box alternatives; • Twin 2.4 m rise x 1.8 m span • Single 2.4 m rise x 3.0 m span • Twin 2.4 m square The single 3 m span x 2.4 m rise boxes were chosen, based on cost and optimum sizing to handle the design flow, and awarded to Mesken Contracting Ltd. after being tendered in December, 2002. Lafarge Canada, Inc. supplied the box units from their Calgary pipe operation after designing the units in accordance with CHBDC for CL-800 truck loading and cover ranging from 0.2 m to 2.65 m above the top of the culvert. The 44 box units, each 2 m long, were produced in February, with AMEC Earth and Envirorrmental inspecting the production. The west culvert required 19 units and the east culvert 25. Construction took place in two stages. First, eastbound traffic was reduced to one lane and moved onto the south shoulder. The failed SPCSP was removed and 10 sections were installed at the west culvert

and 11 at the east culvert. The first box units were cast with exposed

reinforcing to facilitate an easy field connection to the existing culverts. After the first stage installation was backfilled, the contractor moved the traffic to the north shoulder over the newly installed boxes and installed the remaining box units at each site. The roadway was surfaced and the eastbound lanes opened to two-lane traffic. The westbound lanes were unaffected by the construction; however, eastbound traffic was reduced to one lane for 16 days at the west end, and 18 days at the east end. The contractor worked at both sites simul taneously on a 24-hour basis in extreme cold conditions. Construction

was complete in 22 days at both sites. A steel strut was placed at the upstream end of the new culvert sections to block large debris, not for structural support.

Installation of the precast concrete box culverts provided minimal disruption to traffic and an economical, long-lasting product that will stand up to the existing environmental and load conditions.

Historical Flashback

Penetanguishene honours Dr.P.H.Jones

In the early 1960s, the Ontario Water Resources

Commission, now the Ministry of Environment, had frozen ail new developments in Penetanguishene until the municipality had the capacity to treat its raw sewage being discharged into Penetang Bay at several loca tions.

The OWRC developed plans for a new treatment plant in accordance with the Commission's specifications. The plant was to be financed and operated by the Commission, like most other plants in Ontario, and the municipality would be charged a yearly rental for this service. The esti mated capital cost of this conventional system was $325,000 to $350,000 and required a substantial area of land to build. The Beck site at Tannery Cove had been selected by Council. In conjunction with the OWRC, the municipality applied to the Ontario Municipal Board for the authority to construct and finance such an endeavour and a hearing was held in Penetanguishene to so determine. The 0MB looked over the financial picture and questioned the town's ability to finance the facility. Backed by strong opposition from recently hired town engineer, Herb Gray, Council opposed the proposal submit ted by the OWRC as being too expensive. Mr. Gray submit ted evidence to the Board that the town could develop and

operate its own treatment facility - and one at least equal to or better than the one proposed - at a cost considerably below $350,000. The 0MB turned down the OWRC appli cation and authorized the town to go ahead with a study of its own and formulate recommendations for a treatment

plant subject to OWRC approval. The 0MB decision - understandable in light of the financial picture - was an extremely grave event as it not only confirmed the freeze on all new development, but removed hope of being able to proceed with the required solution to lift the "freeze" in the immediate future.

Mr. Gray knew of a University of Toronto professor who specialized in sewage treatment systems. He sold Council on the idea of hiring Dr. Philip Jones to develop a treatment plant utilizing the "extended aeration" system, as efficient and far less costly than the conventional sys tem (anaerobic) as promoted by the OWRC. Dr. Jones' design was submitted to the 0MB by the municipality. The estimated cost of this system was $250,000 or $100,000 less than the conventional system. Furthermore, since the municipality was going to own this plant, it qualified for CMHC financing for not only two thirds of the costs at a very attractive interest rate, but also for a federal grant of $46,000, thus reducing the net cost to around $200,000. In 1965, this new design was approved by the OWRC

This was also the begin ning of servicing the entire west end and north end with sanitary sewers and new water services at an approximate cost of$5 million dollars, of which a good portion was highly subsidized at a great ben efit to the abutting property owners. A major development that was made possible by this new sewage treatment plant was an indus trial park, much needed to attract industries in order to make up for the losses of the early 1960s. The plan of subdivision for the industrial park was registered in 1967, serviced in 1969 and by 1971, the town had three major industries (Advanced Extrusion, Techform and TRW).

Drinking Water

IS0 14001 and drinking water quality By Gary Grant,B.Sc.,CEA,EMS(LA),CEAS

ASafe Drinking Water Strategy has been emerging

in Ontario since the drinking water crisis in Walkerton. A number of regulatory changes were introduced, including the Safe Drinlcing Water Act and, on June 1, 2003, the Drinking Water Systems Regulation (O.Reg. 170/03) which replaced the Drinking Water Protection Regulation for Larger Waterworks (O.Reg. 459/00) and the Drinking Water Protection Regulation for Smaller Waterworks Serving Designated Facilities (O.Reg. 505/01). These regulatory changes establish added onus for mon itoring, reporting, staff certification and requirements for sustainable management. The Ontario Ministry of the Environment(MOB)is committed to implementing all 93 recommendations made by Justice O'Connor in the Walkerton Inquiry. Seven people died and 2,300 became ill after Walkerton's water supply became contaminated with manure spread on a farm near the town in the most serious case of water contamination in Canadian history. Recommendations in the Walkerton Report included requirements for added responsibility and liability for municipal councils and senior administrators, and to have municipalities/operators establish management systems for

their water treatment facilities. It is obvious to certified environmental auditors and

EMS auditors that implementing an Environmental Management System in accordance with ISO 14001 at water treatment facilities will provide a structured system to manage all of the issues raised by Justice O'Connor, including operational control, training, legal, and other requirements, management review, roles and responsibili ties, monitoring, checking, and corrective action. Although the O'Connor recommendations did not specifically reference ISO 14001, and other management systems are being considered, ISO 14001 includes the ele ment of Legal and Other Requirements which is not cov ered under other quality standards such as ISO 9001. A sound EMS conforming to ISO 14001, which addresses the regulatory requirements and the views of the public, is mandatory for avoiding repeats of the Walkerton crisis. Post-Walkerton has established a public demand for municipal water treatment facilities to maintain regulatory compliance, as a minimum. The MOE has adopted a zero tolerance approach to enforcement of municipal water treatment facilities and has hired 50 new inspectors to carry out detailed audits and inspections at each facility in the province. The MOE has established a Municipal Drinking

source, treatment, and distribution components of the drink ing water system, whereas previous inspections were limit ed to the treatment facility only. The MOE inspection also requires an inspector to note any best practices to assist in identifying possible improvement opportunities (for infor mation purposes). Some municipalities have already recognized the advan tages ofimplementing ISO 14001 to control risk and to pro vide added assurance to their customers (the public). Collingwood Utilities is currently implementing ISO 14001

Drinking Water

Maintaining water quality in distribution systems Ken G.Collicott,P.Eng. R.V.Anderson Associates Limited

Water can be considered a

perishable product and has a shelf life (detention time), a preservative

(chlorine or chloramines), and packag ing (pipes and reservoirs).' Water qual ity may undergo changes after it leaves a treatment plant(or well) due to inter nal reactions within the water itself, or from interactions between the water

and the pipe wall. As the travel time increases through a distribution sys tem, the potential for complex chemi cal and biological changes also increases, allowing formation of con taminants that may be of concern. There are several factors that can

cause deterioration of water quality in distribution systems, including: the quality of water leaving the treatment plant or well; pipe material and condi tion; hydraulic detention time; water temperature; operation and mainte nance practices; pressure and flow

Common water quality problems that can occur in distribution systems can be categorized as biological, chemical/physical and aesthetic. Microbiological problems include bacterial regrowth, nitrification, and waterborne diseases originating from microbial pathogens such as E.coli and protozoan parasites like Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Chemical/physical problems in clude disinfection by-product forma tion, leaching of lead and copper, pH stability, corrosion and scale forma tion, by-products of coatings and lin ings, disinfectant residual, and sediment. Aesthetic problems include taste and odour as well as colour and gener al appearance. Aesthetic problems are often linked to chemical/physical problems.

In the design and operation of stor age facilities, the best practices to mit igate water quality problems include: storage facilities should not be over sized; do not use standpipes if the total storage volume is significantly greater than the useful storage volume; all open finished reservoirs should be taken out-of-service until they are cov ered; linings and coatings should com ply with NSF/ANSI Standard 61; the site and roof drainage should be designed so that stormwater runoff drains away from the storage facility; access hatches should be designed to prevent contaminated water and debris from falling into the facility when the hatches are opened. Also, secondary containment should be provided for fuel tanks and chemicals that are located at nearby pumping stations; design storage facil ities to prevent dead zones; a distribu tion system should be operated to max imize the turnover rate in its storage facilities (automatic controls should be provided to facilitate the draining and filling of the storage facility); storage facilities should be equipped with security systems such as perimeter fencing with lockable gates, lockable

these cases, hydrants, blow-offs or automatic flushing devices should be installed at dead ends to allow them to be flushed.

This energy-efficient technology, which con sumes less than 100 kWh of electricity per wet ton of sludge, offers an excellent alternative to incinera tion, landfill disposal, or sludge spreading. Plants will be able to reduce their waste volume by 95%. Plasma oxidation is one of the most environmental

Geosynthetic Technology

Mechanically stabilized embankment uses polyester geogrid reinforcement Mark Simpson,P.Eng., Layfleld Group Ltd.

Faced with significant environ

mental protection, cost, and operational constraints, the St. Lawrence and Hudson Railway (now Canadian Pacific Railway) chose to reinforce a deteriorating railway trestle bridge with a geogrid reinforced mechanically stabilized embankment. In June 2000, the St. Lawrence and Hudson Railway conunissioned the re construction of a 15m high x 60m long

railway trestle bridge across a river val ley in St. Thomas, Ontario. The over all design was developed by

• Minimizing the footprint of the embankment on the valley floor. • Reducing the number of truck trips in and out of the site, since all the materials for the project were import

• Utilizing a wrap wall design allowed the designer to eliminate the need for a bench as would normally be required on a steepened slope. A bench would further increase the footprint of the embankment on the valley floor. 3. Hydraulic - Steepening the slope of important hydraulic objectives:

Design constraints The design engineer faced several design constraints including; 1. Operational - A key design consid eration was to minimize the down time

of the railway line. Re-constructing a new trestle bridge would have forced the closure of the railway line for an extended period of time. The mechani cally stabilized embankment (MSB) design allowed the railway to remain open during most of the construction except for the short period of time when the tracks were removed to facil

Geosynthetic technology employed There has been a dramatic expan sion of reinforced soil structures in the United States and Canada over the last

decade. The projection in the US is for over 70,000 square metres of new wall face per year. Geogrid reinforcement in slopes is typically used to achieve two objectives: increase slope stability, and to improve compaction at the edges of the slope to reduce sloughing. As in this case, a typical MSB design employs two types of geogrid reinforcement, primary and secondary. The primary geogrid acts like reinforc ing steel in concrete, adding strength in tension to the soil mass. Utilizing a high strength polyester yarn geogrid

allowed the construction of a 45 degree embankment, utilizing OPSS 1010 Granular B Type 1 Soil with an angle of internal friction of 32 degrees.

1. Primaiy geogrid reinforcement The primary geogrid reinforcement utilized in this design has a minimum long-term design strength (LTDS) of 60kN/m based on GRI-GG4(b) in Sand and Gravel. The geogrid is con structed of a high strength, low creep polyester yarn coated with a polymer for protection against UV degradation and mechanical damage. From the bot tom to the top of the embankment, the spacing and strength of the geogrid is detailed in Table 1.

The lower strength geogrid and wider spacing could be utilized at the top of the embankment due to the reduced design loads that, in turn, pro vided a cost savings. The primary geogrid was laid out in continuous lengths perpendicular to the slope face, through the trestle, to reinforce the granular soils in the embankment. A total of 11,200 square metres of primary geogrid was used in this project. 2. Secondary geogrid - The secondary

geogrid reinforcement utilized in this design has a minimum LTDS of 6kN/m based on GRI-GG4(b) in Sand and Gravel. The secondary geogrid was constructed of polypropylene yarns with carbon black additive for protection against UV degradation. The yarns are also coated with a poly mer for protection against mechanical damage and increased friction with the soil. The geogrid was utilized as a compaction aid at the extreme edges of each granular soil lift as well as to encapsulate the topsoil, seed, and ero sion control blanket wrapped behind the geogrid. The secondary geogrid wrapped configuration was also used as an aid to minimize surface erosion

and sloughing, which is often found in steepened slopes. A total of 13,500 square metres was used in this project. Construction techniques The primary geogrid was placed over each lift of granular. Of greatest importance was that the entire lift sur face was covered with the geogrid with the strength direction oriented perpen dicular to the slope face. To achieve this, and to reduce waste, incremental

sion control blanket was then placed in intimate contact with the secondary geogrid, then wrapped over the leading edge of embankment fill, topsoil, and seed. Finally, the upper leg of the geogrid was placed a minimum of 2m over the exposed surface of the top lift of granular material. Temporary forms and a skilled excavator operator main tained the alignment ofthe 1:1 slope as they progressed upward. Post-construction follow-up A site visit was performed in May of 2002, almost two years post-con struction. The exposed slope faces were completely covered by dense native vegetation. At the inspection, the dense vegetation was pulled back to expose the secondary geogrid which was visually unaffected by the sun's UV rays. The general contractor was pleased with the project, noting that it was completed on time and within budget. The contractor also noted that it was a unique and technically chal lenging construction project, which made it interesting to participate in. Typical costs Mechanically stabilized embank ments consist of three primary compo

face treatment. Typically, these costs, as a percentage of the total cost, break out as follows:

â&#x20AC;˘ Reinforcement 45 - 65%, â&#x20AC;˘ Backfill 30 - 45%, â&#x20AC;˘ Face Treatment 5 - 10%.

In this case, constructing a rein

more cost-effective than an unrein-

forced, 2:1 slope alternative. In a sim plified analysis, the reinforced embankment proved to be 15% less expensive to construct than a 2:1 unreinforced slope. This is a very conser vative analysis since it does not account for the additional material

required to construct the mandatory benched slope, the cost of a lengthened culvert, or the cost of additional land. Further, steep, unprotected slopes tend to require additional ongoing mainte nance, particularly on the slope face due to sloughing and surface erosion. In this case the wrap wall construction protected against these maintenance problems. The project was successfully com pleted on time and within budget. Utilizing geosynthetic technology, the designer was able to overcome many of the constraints involved in building a steep slope in a narrow parcel of land. Mechanically stabilized embank ments have become a much more com

mon design practice with an evolving body of knowledge on the subject.

lengths of geogrid were manufactured, specific to the surface area of each lift. This also eliminated the need for splic ing in the strength direction of the grid. The challenge of placing the geogrid around

the

vertical

columns that

remained in the trestle was overcome

by simply slitting the geogrid in the direction perpendicular to the slope face (non-strength direction). This technique allowed for the maximum number of reinforcing bars around each column. The geogrid was then staked in place and the granular mate rials were pushed from the centre of the embankment toward the edges to ensure that the geogrid was tensioned in the process. The secondary geogrid and erosion control blankets that comprised the wrap face were laid out in continuous lengths parallel to the slope face. The lower leg of the secondary grid was embedded a minimum 1.1m. The ero

Book REVIEW

Asian Water Supplies - Reaching the Urban Poor

Arthur Mclntosh's book gives exhaustive coverage on providing

drinking water to Third World countries and a surprising perspec tive on the economics of providing potable water to the poor. It highlights some myths, misconceptions and realities of providing and delivering water supplies through a wide range of scenarios. The find ings are amazing. In Manila, for example, a household helper pays 900 pesos per month for vended water, while her employer pays 200 pesos a month for piped water. In five areas of Kathmandu, which have a combined population of 1.1 million, an estimated 52 percent of households have individual connec tions to piped supplies, with some 30 percent getting water from public taps. The remaining 18 percent must obtain water from wells, stone spouts, springs and streams. Barely two percent of people receive a full day's sup ply during the rainy season and almost no one receives 24 hour piped water during the dry season. Those reliant on standpipes often have to get up in the middle of the night to wait for water which they do eventually receive without charge. In the case of sanitation, 22 percent of households are con nected to a sewage system; 70 percent rely on septic tanks. Private opera tors usually do the desludging of septic systems. There are four wastewater treatment plants with a combined treatment capacity of 40,000 a day. Despite this, untreated sewage has badly polluted some water bodies. The author suggests that water scarcity is Kathmandu's perennial crisis, with some people regarding themselves lucky if they get water every two or three days. Many other areas suffer badly, like Kathmandu, in the provision of safe, affordable water supplies but Singapore is at the other end of the spectrum. The author suggests that the Singapore Public Utilities Board is perhaps the best water utility in the world and pays some of its staff mem

Water Treatment

New Ontario drinking water regulations trigger major well systems upgrade By Zoran M. Filinov,P.Eng. Associate

Director, R.V. Anderson Associates

To comply with Ontario

Ministry of the Environment regulatory requirements, the Regional Municipality of York is undertaking improvements to the well water supply and treatment facili ties to well systems in Aurora,

Newmarket, and East Gwillimbury, among others. The water for these towns is drawn

from the Yonge Street Aquifer, which is a confined underground reservoir stretching under the area municipali ties, approximately along the Yonge Street alignment. This supply is also supplemented with Lake Ontario water. Pumped groundwater is treated for iron sequestration and disinfection in the local pump houses before it is discharged into the water distribution network and storage facilities. Initially, the required upgrades were identified through the Mandatory First Engineers Report. All recommenda tions and requirements by the Report were then reviewed by the Ministry of the Environment and summarized in a

Consolidated Certificate of Approval (CC of A) for the entire Yonge Street Aquifer Water Supply System (shown in Figure 1). Generally the upgrades consist of additions required to increase the safe ty of the water supply and the facili ties, including: • In-ground chlorine contact tanks, to ensure sufficient disinfection time. • Addition of ammoniation to the

treatment process, to change from free chlorine to total (chloramines) residual for the distribution network.

• Chlorine scrubbers to provide safety against chlorine gas leaks. • Standby equipment, to provide redundancy. • Upgrade or replacement of outdated equipment, to increase reliability. Some of the existing well pump

Construction value of the project is $7.5 million, which includes up grades to all of the well pump houses of the Yonge Street Aquifer system, with the exception of the Aurora Wells 1 to 4 facility.
