Property owners need to be concerned about clean up liability following the Kawartha Lakes spill By Chris ParĂŠ and Allan Clifford Lawton
andowners cannot be held responsible for the actions of others that result in contamination of their property, right? While that seems reasonable and logical, recent legal decisions in Ontario have forced innocent parties to remediate environmental contamination migrating from a neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property. This is a radical change to the perceived innocent landowner protections. How do these changes impact environmental site assessments? What does it mean for merger and acquisitions? How could it impact commercial property transactions and how could lenders and insurance companies respond? While time and future transactions will ultimately provide these answers, the precedent-setting Kawartha Lakes case is worth the attention of senior environPHQWDO RIÂżFHUV Background The Kawartha Lakes incident began to unfold in December 2008. In what would be considered a relatively â&#x20AC;&#x153;routineâ&#x20AC;? task, a homeowner had their IXUQDFH RLO VWRUDJH WDQN ÂżOOHG E\ D IXHO supplier. However, the furnace oil leaked IURP WKH WDQN RQWR WKH EDVHPHQW Ă&#x20AC;RRU DQG LQWR D Ă&#x20AC;RRU GUDLQ ZKLFK ZDV FRQnected to the storm sewer system. Unfortunately, the spilled fuel travelled a VLJQLÂżFDQW GLVWDQFH WKURXJK WKH V\VWHP to a discharge point at Sturgeon Lake. 7KH KRPHRZQHU ÂżOHG D FODLP ZLWK their insurance provider. After three months of conducting remedial activities on the subject and off-site properties, the homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insurance coverage was QRW VXIÂżFLHQW WR FRYHU FRVWV 7KHVH ZHUH now exceeding hundreds of thousands of dollars. Therefore, there were no funds available to continue the cleanup. This is where the case becomes â&#x20AC;&#x153;interestingâ&#x20AC;?. The Ontario Ministry of the Environment served an order on the Municipality of Kawartha Lakes, which had no involvement in the release, to take action to address this spill beyond the residential property. According to
6 | January/February 2014
23b-Kawartha Lakes Dragun.indd 6
the court documents, the MOE stated that the municipality was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;viable party that can expeditiously actâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? to address this contamination. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep pockets payâ&#x20AC;? approach to remediation has raised concerns about how far reaching it can be. Additionally, does an innocent party need to clean up their own property if another party caused the pollution? Assuming the Kawartha Lakes decision truly is the precedent-setting decision it appears to be, it may be wise to re-examine risk formulas relating to commercial or industrial property purchases. The fallout from this ruling may complicate transactions and, certainly, will require a more thorough understanding of site and, also, surrounding site conditions. Routine commercial/industrial property transactions Most commercial property buyers know to start with a Phase One Environmental Site Assessment, which includes an evaluation of the history of the subject property and the surrounding properties. However, a Phase One is just information gathering and there is no intrusive sampling involved. This PD\ QRW EH VXIÂżFLHQW LI RII VLWH KLVWRUL-

A typical Phase One is not likely to produce details relative to groundwater, unless a historical hydrogeological investigation has been conducted.

To more thoroughly evaluate groundZDWHU Ă&#x20AC;RZ DQG TXDOLW\ PRQLWRULQJ ZHOOV need to be installed and analytical data collected along the upgradient property boundary. This allows you to make an informed decision about the potential for migration of contaminants to your property. Prior to the Kawartha Lakes decision, it may not have been necessary to conduct a Phase Two investigation. However, after the Kawartha Lakes decision, these Phase Two investigations may become more prevalent. It is also important to consider what is hydraulically down gradient of your property, especially if the upgradient neighbour already has impacted continued overleaf...

Guest Comment groundwater. For example, if a sensitive ecosystem such as a lake, parkland, or residential property could be impacted by contamination that simply crosses your property, would this be an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unreasonableâ&#x20AC;? risk for your company to consider? Could the MOE name you as one of several responsible parties to address the contamination? In other words, the Kawartha Lakes decision leads us to believe that if your polluted neighbour doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address the groundwater contamination problem, it could become your problem. When evaluating neighbouring properties, you might want to consider their current chemical use and handling pracWLFHV DQG WKHLU KRXVHNHHSLQJ DQG ÂżQDQcial health. For example, if your investigation indicates that a neighbouring property owner handles chemicals poorO\ DQG GRHVQÂśW DSSHDU WR EH ÂżQDQFLDOO\ healthy, could this impact you in the future? What if they have a release and subsequently go bankrupt? This may be an overly cautious but not unreasonable consideration, in light of the Kawartha Lakes decision. If you are concerned about the neighbouring property, should you consider conducting annual monitoring of the groundwater to document the groundwater quality conditions? Could you use this data and information to demonstrate impacted groundwater has migrated onto your property? How would your lawyer advise you to protect your investment?

Typically, clients considering M&A activity want ballpark environmental liability estimates, such as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the potential liability at the property $50,000, $500,000, $5,000,000, and so onâ&#x20AC;?.

Chemical spill forces â&#x20AC;&#x153;do not useâ&#x20AC;? order West Virginia declared a state of emergency as contaminated water supply affected hundreds of thousands. A leak of 4-methylcyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) into Elk River, 2.5 km upstream from a public water supply intake, caused the West Virginia American Water Company to issue a â&#x20AC;&#x153;do not useâ&#x20AC;? order to its customers. MCHM is used to process coal and has an obvious odour reported to smell like licorice. The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection issued a Cease Operations Order to Freedom Industries Etowah River Terminal, LLC, in connection with the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leak. It was ordered to empty 11 remaining storage tanks. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, scientists recommended a screening level of 1 ppm for drinking water. Pregnant women are cautioned to consider an alternative drinking water source until the chemical is at non-detectable levels in the water distribution system. www.dep.wv.gov

$764,000 grant goes to Alberta boreal forest researcher A University of Alberta Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences (ALES) researcher was awarded an NSERC Strategic Grant of $764,000 to develop tools to optimize the harvest of Albertaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boreal forest, while safeguarding its biodiversity and productivity. Ellen Macdonald is a forest ecologist with the Department of Renewable Resources. The three-year study will be conduct-
ed on the EMEND (Ecosystem Management Emulating Natural Disturbance) site, an experimental forest located just northwest of Peace River in which a very large experiment in variable retention harvesting (leaving trees or clumps of trees in a harvested area because it helps maintain forest biodiversity) was established in 1998. Macdonald said the value of variable retention harvesting is well understood but not necessarily how to optimally place that retention in order to support the recovery of forest productivity and biodiversity after a selective harvest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talked about where on the landscape would be best to harvest or leave alone, for example, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wetter or drier.

on a wide variety of measures such as soil carbon, plant and beetle diversity and ecosystem function. In addition, the researchers will be using data obtained from remote sensors, providing data on topography and important site conditions such as wetness and tree heights and distribution. www.ales.ualberta.ca/ALESNews

Demystifying computational fluid dynamics for water and wastewater professionals By Bernardo Majano and GeneviĂ¨ve Kenny
omputational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the application and approximate solution of fluid dynamics equations to predict the behaviour of a fluid within a specified boundary. While CFD modeling has been an accepted design tool in the aerospace and automotive industries for several decades, it is now becoming an increasingly popular tool in the water/wastewater industry. The aim of this article is to give water and wastewater professionals an overview of the basic concepts of CFD modeling, so that they will have a better understanding of how this technology can be applied to their industry. Basic CFD theory The main equations that describe fluid dynamics were formulated in the 19th century. These are called the Navier-Stokes Equations. A variation of this equation is defined as follows:
w ( UU ) Â&#x2019;.UUU Â&#x2019;.UR wt
Where: U: velocity (vector) t= time Ç&#x201A;= fluid density p=pressure (scalar) R=turbulence dissipation In simple words this equations means:
transient convection turbulence
Until now, the Navier-Stokes equations have only been solved for very particular and simplified cases. However, with the evolution of computers, approximations to these equations can be obtained by using â&#x20AC;&#x153;numerical methodsâ&#x20AC;?. The above equation states that mass and momentum is conserved; if it were to be used for energy, it would have to be modified to include energy conservation. Because differential equations describe continuous rates of change, the strategy for solving these complex equations is discretisation. Discretisation is defined as the approximation of a continuous problem into finite quantities, thus obtaining a â&#x20AC;&#x153;numerical solutionâ&#x20AC;? of the equation. The simple example in Figure 1 illustrates this concept. In Figure 1, the area of the shape â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? is to be calculated. It is bound by a continuous line. Due to the shape of the area, it cannot be easily calculated with any simple formula. Therefore, the large region is divided into smaller rectangles, the area of which can be easily calculated, and the area is approximated. With smaller rectangles, the accuracy of the solution is increased as the error is reduced. The development and usage of numerical methods for ob20 | January/February 2014

taining approximate solutions of equations is an extensive and complicated science. Although commonly used by engineers, development and implementation are usually left almost solely to mathematicians and computer scientists. Nevertheless, it is important for any engineer, who uses CFD to model real world engineering problems, to have a basic understanding of fluid mechanics fundamentals and numerical solution algorithms. While the complexity of CFD models can vary widely, the basic steps are common to all models. They are the following: â&#x20AC;˘ Building the model geometry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; similar to CAD, a two or tridimensional model is generated using software. â&#x20AC;˘ Meshing the model â&#x20AC;&#x201C; transforming the geometry into a collection of cells (i.e., finite volumes), which will be used for the CFD model calculation. â&#x20AC;˘ Setting up the boundary conditions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; establishing the boundaries of the model, and the inlet and outlet conditions (velocity, pressure, turbulence kinetic energy, etc.). â&#x20AC;˘ Running the CFD model â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the computer starts calculating the fluid behaviour across each cell in the model. â&#x20AC;˘ Post-processing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; displaying the results of the CFD simulations using graphical representation. When developing a CFD model, it is often fluid dynamics behaviour that needs to be considered, as these properties can have a significant impact on the behaviour of the fluid being studied. For example, it is important to remember that turbulence and vorticity are not to be confused, and require different CFD boundary conditions. Turbulence is defined as chaotic or erratic behaviour of flow. In fluid mechanics, the Reynolds number is defined as the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces. As the number is increased, the fluid flow becomes turbulent. In basic fluid mechanics, the Bernoulli Equation is modified continued overleaf... Environmental Science & Engineering Magazine

For many other engineering problems, this approach is not sufficient (e.g., anaerobic digester mixing optimization), and a more detailed modelling and understanding of turbulence is required. Detailed turbulence models were developed in the 20th century. One of these models is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;k-epsilonâ&#x20AC;? turbulence model, which is one of the most widely used and validated in CFD. The model is based on the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations,which are a statistically averaged modifi-
cation of the original Navier-Stokes. The model defines two parameters - â&#x20AC;&#x153;kâ&#x20AC;? which is the turbulence kinetic energy factor and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ć¸â&#x20AC;? the turbulence dissipation rate. There are many variations of the k-epsilon model. One of them is the two-equation k-epsilon model, where an equation for the kinetic energy is described as follows (steady-state and no-source):

The k-epsilon model is only valid for fully turbulent flows. An additional model has to be developed to model turbulence near wall boundary conditions, where viscous, low-Reynolds number effects are dominant. In this domain, shear stresses by a wall friction factor, which is not the same friction factor used in standard headloss equations such as Darcy-Weibasch.
Each iteration described in Figure 2 calculates parameters for each finite volume cell created during the geometry and meshing generation. This requires the computation of a formidable quantity of calculations that would not be practical without a computer. This is one reason why CFD software has become popular in conjunction with the advancement of computer technologies. For many water engineering problems, the SIMPLE algorithm provides a simplified but robust solution. Many more algorithms are available; however, the SIMPLE algorithm is used in 95% of water/wastewater CFD simulations. It is also important to note that CFD solvers, turbulence models, meshing utilities, and codes are being continuously developed every year. As the field progresses, some of the material introduced here could be completely obsolete in a few years. As previously mentioned, many other solvers are available and many more are being developed every year. This applies not only to fluid dynamics, but also to heat transfer phenomena. The various types of physics that can be modeled with finite element and finite volume techniques, along with the adequate solver algorithms, are shown in Figure 3.
Solvers There are many solvers available for various cases and applications. If steady state, incompressible, turbulent, and single phase flow is assumed, the Semi Implicit Methods Pressure Linked Equations (SIMPLE) algorithm solver can be successfully used with good results and reduced computation time. The flowchart in Figure 2 describes the SIMPLE algorithm.

Case study 1: Toronto The first case study discusses the design of a vortex inlet for a new construction stormwater sewer located in Toronto, Ontario. Unique design constraints required hydraulic modeling using pilot scale models. Following the testing of the pilot models, a CFD model was developed to verify the design. This was initially validated by comparing the results with the pilot scale model. Once validated, the CFD model was run at multiple flow rates to evaluate performance of the vortex inlet. The Vortex Inlet model mesh is shown in Figure 4, with points indicating the corners of each mesh cell. This model was created using a CFD geometry program where the model is constructed, followed by a meshing program that converts the geometry into mesh cells, to be used for the numerical simulation. The size of the mesh cells is dependent on the detail continued overleaf... Environmental Science & Engineering Magazine

the retrofit included a bypass channel for peak flows. However, the geometry of the bypass channel was unconventional, and a CFD model was developed to better understand the flow patterns within the proposed bypass channel. Once created, the model allowed the design team to better understand the areas of the channel affected by high levels of turbulence and vorticity. They could then consider geometry changes to reduce these turbulent zones, or increase them (in a dedicated stilling well mixing chamber). The model also allowed the design team to identify areas of stagnant flow. Bernardo Majano, P. Eng., and Geneviève Kenny, P. Eng., are with R.V. Anderson Associates Limited.

Water Supply Single cases of Legionnairesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; disease are more common than outbreaks. Here in Canada, in late September 2005, 127 residents of a nursing home in Toronto were infected with Legionella pneumophila. Within a week, 21 of the residents had died. The source of the outbreak was traced to the air-conditioning cooling towers on the roof. More recently, in September 2012, there was an outbreak in QuĂŠbec City. One hundred and eighty people were infected and 13 of them died. This outbreak was associated with contamination of water in industrial cooling towers. Occurrence of Legionella in water systems Legionella species are found virtually everywhere in nature but primarily exist in aquatic environments. However, some species have been isolated in potting soils and moist soil samples. They can survive in a wide range of water conditions such as in temperatures of 0oC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 63oC, a pH range of 5.0 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 8.5 and a dissolved oxygen concentration in water of 0.2 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 15 ppm. Several studies have demonstrated that Legionella is widespread in natural surface freshwater sources such as lakes and streams. It has also been found in marine waters. Legionella bacteria have been detected in groundwater, but at levels lower than generally found in man-made water environments.

Water Supply are easier to transport and require less processing time than straight water samples. To collect samples for Legionella testing, use the following procedures: • If sampling high risk environments, use high efficiency particulate respirators, gloves and safety goggles for personal protection. • Take care not to generate fine droplets when sampling. • Obtain sterile bottles containing a preservative from the lab. One thousand mililitre bottles are required for potable water and 500 ml bottles for non-potable water. • Leave an air space in the bottle. • Label the samples. When collecting samples from a potable water source: • Collect two sets of samples if possible. One set from the hot water supply and the other from the cold water supply. Take the first sample of 1000 ml directly from the tap and let the water run for 60 seconds or longer then take the second sample. • Wearing gloves, carefully remove

Water Supply tation of sample results and evaluation of occupant risk. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) has published guidelines for the interpretation of Legionella water samples (See Table 1). Controlling Legionella in water systems Effective control of Legionella requires full risk assessment of hot and cold water systems and ensuring that adequate measures are in place to control the risks. Several strategies can be applied to control Legionella growth. These include: a) Using temperature control Water services should be operated at temperatures that prevent Legionella growth. For example: â&#x20AC;˘ Hot water storage tanks should store water at 60Â°C or higher. â&#x20AC;˘ Hot water should be distributed at 50Â°C or higher. â&#x20AC;˘ Cold water should be stored and distributed below 20Â°C. Hot water storage tank temperatures should be checked every month and
cold water tank temperatures at least every six months. b) Routine monitoring of the water system - The water system should be routinely checked by a competent person and cleaned in accordance with the risk assessment. Stagnant water favours Legionella growth. Therefore, to reduce risk: â&#x20AC;˘ Remove dead legs/dead ends in pipework. â&#x20AC;˘ Flush out infrequently used outlets (including showerheads and taps) at least weekly and clean. â&#x20AC;˘ De-scale shower heads and hoses at least quarterly. â&#x20AC;˘ Clean cold water storage tanks periodically and drain water from hot water tanks to check for debris or signs of corrosion. c) Engineering controls - Design water systems to minimise Legionella growth by: â&#x20AC;˘ Keeping pipe work as short and direct as possible. â&#x20AC;˘ Adequately insulating pipes and tanks. â&#x20AC;˘ Using materials that do not encourage
the growth of Legionella. â&#x20AC;˘ Preventing contamination, for example by fitting tanks with lids and insect screens. d) Use of biocides - Since Legionella EDFWHULD DUH SURWHFWHG E\ ELRÂżOPV and other micro-organisms, complete control using biocides, such as chlorine GLR[LGH FDQ EH GLIÂżFXOW 7R HQVXUH WKDW biocides remain effective, their application will need suitable assessment as part of the overall water treatment program, including proper installation, maintenance and monitoring. e) Regular monitoring of the water systems - Water samples should be collected and analyzed for Legionella periodically (usually every four to six months for routine monitoring), to demonstrate that bacteria counts are acceptable. The frequency should be determined in accordance with the risk assessment. Dr. Jackson Kungâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;u is the Principal Microbiologist at Mold & Bacteria Consulting Laboratories (MBL) Inc.

New aeration technology rehabilitates Aylmer’s old lagoon system
imilar to much of Canada’s wastewater treatment infrastructure, the majority of the Town of Aylmer, Ontario’s wastewater lagoons were significantly expanded in the 1980s. Now, more than 30 years later, they have begun to show their age. Despite the fact that Aylmer (Pop. 7,300) has one of the largest wastewater lagoon systems in Ontario, they were still relying on a severely outdated aeration system. One hundred and ninety two coarse bubble static tube aerators and their air laterals were beginning to fail. Air from the blower system gushed out of breakages in the aeration lines. As a result, ammonia and BOD levels suffered greatly, and the facility risked falling out of compliance with Ontario Ministry of the Environment. Rod Tapp, Director of Operations for the Town turned to Peter Penner from Cyril J. Demeyere (CJDL) Consulting Engineers to help rectify this problem. Evaluation criteria The largest hurdle for Aylmer to overcome in this project was funding. They needed a system that could be installed on a limited budget, as well as maintained and operated without increased costs. Also, as the lagoon cells work in series to provide sufficient storage and treatment time, they could not afford to incur a long period of system downtime. Lastly, they wanted to maintain the turbulent and effective water mixing in the 5.2m deep Cell #1 that they received from their existing coarse bubble system. This was needed in order to ensure only limited sludge accumulation over time. Mechanical treatment plant In recent years effluent release limits have become increasingly stricter. These regulations, combined with ever-growing populations, can be difficult to manage for small municipalities like Aylmer that have limited financial and human resources. In an effort to meet new standards,

Aylmer, Ontario’s wastewater lagoons were significantly expanded in the 1980s.
many small municipalities have either replaced their lagoon systems with a mechanical plant, or have opted to pump their wastewater to a nearby municipality for treatment. Initially, a mechanical plant appeared to be a very desirable option for Aylmer. Higher quality effluent can be achieved in a smaller footprint, which allows more land for other development and improvements. Unfortunately, a deeper analysis revealed that the cost of designing and building a new mechanical plant was going to far exceed the available budget. The only feasible alternative left was to upgrade their existing infrastructure. Furthermore, they needed a wastewater treatment system that would not increase ongoing operational and maintenance costs. A mechanical plant, with many more moving parts, would not be likely to accomplish that.
Mechanical surface aerators Surface aerators are commonly utilized in wastewater lagoons, similar to Aylmer’s. There are some benefits that met Aylmer’s evaluation criteria. For example, they are portable, and can be quickly installed without incurring downtime. However, maintenance and operation costs would increase from their current system, as surface aerators can malfunction, especially in colder climates. Furthermore, surface aerators have relatively low energy efficiency (SAE 1.5 to 2.25 lb O2/hp-hr) as compared to diffused technologies. This level of energy efficiency was bound to increase the operation costs of the Aylmer lagoon aeration system. Tapp was also concerned about the limited zones of mixing influence. Surface aerators with the most advanced

Wastewater Aeration mixing capabilities max out around 2.5 to 3.0m. Since Cell#1 at the Aylmer lagoons is 5.2m in depth, the lower half of the water column would remain untouched. This would result in decreased aerobic activity and increased sludge accumulation. According to Penner, “the longer that the solids remain in suspension, with optimum oxygen levels, the greater the microorganisms’ ability to complete the natural treatment process to remove nutrients and minimize sludge accumulation.” Fine bubble aeration As a means of counteracting the low energy efficiency of the surface aeration system, CJDL also considered fine bubble aeration technology. SAEs of 4-7 lb O2/hp-hr translates into much lower operating costs, and a much more sustainable system option. Furthermore, a fine bubble system could potentially utilize the existing blowers. This type of arrangement would result in fewer onshore motors to maintain, as compared to surface aeration. However, research performed by Penner revealed that fine bubble diffusers were prone to clogging. The tiny holes in the diffuser material are susceptible to being blocked by solids or natural fouling buildup. This would likely increase maintenance costs as they would have to be cleaned and replaced regularly. With a fine bubble system such as this, a floating lateral design is necessary. Tapp expressed serious reserva-
tions about this type of design, saying: “Cell#1 in the lagoons has 7.8 hectares of surface area and is wide open to the prevailing winds. Once the ice starts to melt around the edges, the whole sheet of ice will move and shift with the wind, causing a lot of stress on a floating aeration system. If we lose one of the floating laterals, the whole string of individual aerators gets shut down and taken out of service until spring when repairs can be completed.” MARS Aeration System As a result of research on the internet, CJDL discovered the MARS Aeration System and, through detailed consultation with Triplepoint Water Technologies, were able to design a system that met all of Aylmer’s criteria. The MARS Aeration System is a hybrid that combines the efficiency of fine bubble systems with the mixing capabilities of coarse bubble static tube technology in one portable unit. As a result, it can be easily lowered from a small boat into a lagoon from the surface of the water, eliminating the need for dewatering of the lagoon and limiting system downtime. Each unit’s air supply can be isolated via its own individual airline and onshore valve. Similarly, a stainless steel tether allows each unit to be pulled to the surface individually, in the event that maintenance is necessary. The unique design incorporates EPDM fine bubble diffusers to avoid clogging problems.
Triplepoint’s staff worked closely with CJDL and the Town of Aylmer to customize the system layout to suit the high organic loading at the lagoon’s Cell#1 inlet location and to avoid the defunct aeration system that was partially abandoned in place. Triplepoint also addressed the Town’s concerns with coupling successive lengths of weighted tubing by using stainless steel fittings to provide strength and corrosion resistance. Following the first two years of operation, there has been no maintenance required or deficiencies to address. The quality of the treated lagoon effluent has improved and has easily met the strict quality objectives set out in the Ministry of Environment’s Certificate of Approval. The Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) operates the lagoon system under contract with the Town. According to Dale Le Britton, Operations Manager at OCWA, “the new aeration system has definitely made an improvement in the quality of our final effluent for release. We have experienced higher dissolved oxygen levels with less run time on the blowers and we have been able to reduce the discharge phosphorus using less chemical addition. The operators are pleased with how easy it is to control air flow and have not experienced any maintenance issues.” For more information, E-mail: email@example.com

Peristaltic pump technology proves its worth in water/wastewater-handling operations By Tom Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell
ositive displacement peristaltic (hose) pumps technology was patented in 1925 in France.

Peristaltic pumps satisfy the requirements of such a wide range of applications because their operation is based on the alternating contraction and relaxation of the hose, forcing the contents to move through the pump and into the GLVFKDUJH SLSLQJ $ VPRRWK ZDOO Ă&#x20AC;H[LEOH KRVH LV ÂżWWHG LQ WKH SXPS FDVLQJ and is squeezed between shoes on the rotor and the inside of the pump casing.

the squeeze produces an almost full vacuum that draws the product into the hose from the intake piping. The pump casing is lubricated to cool the pump and lengthen the service life of the shoes and hose. Since the product only contacts the hose and not the internal pump components, this pumping technology is well suited for abrasive and corrosive applications. Peristaltic pumps also maintain excellent volumetric consistency, making them ideal for the strict dosing and 24/7 operating cycles that can be required in wastewater treatment applications. The pump’s seal-free design makes it dry-run, self-priming and low-slip capable, and eliminates any potential leak or contamination points, while simultaneously providing superior suction lift. Peristaltic pumps are easy to operate and easy to maintain, and reversible operation allows for pumping in both directions. In order to successfully handle the challenges of water and wastewater handling and treatment, the peristaltic pump’s hose needs to achieve the highest level of material compatibility. At
the same time, it must reliably deliver the millions of pumping cycles that are required during its lifetime. When selecting a hose material, it is important to consider the fatigue resistance of the hose. A material that is susceptible to developing cracks and holes relatively early in its operational life, is not as desirable as a material that can

Barrie selects new water-tight valve chambers By Peter Sucharda
unicipalities are finding their older underground control valve and meter chambers are routinely flooded. This degrades the concrete and reduces the useful life of these structures. Servicing the equipment in these stations becomes difficult and even dangerous. Furthermore, it often fails prematurely because of the high humidity. Replacement chambers are made using either pour-in-place or pre-cast concrete structures. In either case, water leakage may still occur and the cycle of deterioration will begin again. Concrete is porous and it contains inclusions; cracks can occur in handling and as the ground settles. Mastic coatings and water-stops at pipe-ways into and out of the station may not resist hydrostatic pressure and leaks may occur. Flooded chambers represent a hidden cost of servicing. Workers must spend time and effort to pump them out before entering and when they do, they may find a very unfriendly environment. Piping and valves corrode and become slimy to the touch. Undesirable life-forms consider these chambers their home. The dark, damp and slippery conditions are often the cause of worker complaints and injuries. Additionally, without proper ventilation, noxious gases can collect, creating additional safety concerns. Finding that several of their chambers were in poor condition, the City of Barrie, Ontario decided to look for alternative solutions. Engineered Fluid Inc. (EFI) produces pre-fabricated, water-tight steel chambers for the municipal water distribution market. Approximately 12,000 of these have been installed throughout North America. These factory-built, installation-ready equipment chambers offer many advantages: Leak-proof: Steel is non-porous. The seal welded, steel-walled chambers are constructed so that there are no opportunities for water or gases to enter. All ports into the chamber are welded joints, made physically strong enough to remain in position and “leak-free”

regardless of groundwater, or ground shifts that occur over time. EFI chambers provide a user-friendly environment for workers to enter without fear of having to deal with flooding or “surprise guests”. They are formed, coated and provided with cathodic protection to resist corrosion. Special coatings systems can be used where “hot” soil conditions are apparent. Controlled climate: When electricity is available for these chambers, they typically include a heater, ventilation fan, de-humidifier and sump pump. The heater and de-humidifier are self-regulating units that turn on/off as required. Together the heater and de-humidifier maintain a warm, dry environment that minimizes humidity, is suitable for electronic equipment, and will extend the working life of all chamber components significantly. Along with the ventilation fan, return air and fan discharge ports are designed to ensure that fresh air is circulated through the chamber when the hatch is open. Custom-design: The City of Barrie worked with EFI to design the layout and contents of their chambers. The City
selected the product types and manufacturers they preferred. An iterative design process was used, whereby the chamber manufacturer supplied a proposed, to-scale layout drawing which the City reviewed and provided feedback on. This led to a revised layout drawing and further feedback, until a final design was reached. Spacious environment: These chambers are designed for operators to safely work on the internal equipment, by leaving proper room around piping components and electrical equipment. The chamber lighting also instills a feeling of spaciousness because the capsule’s smooth metal walls reflect light, making the entire chamber brighter and more user-friendly. Reduced installation time: Pre-fabricated stations significantly shorten the time required for site work, thereby minimizing road disruption and “open-hole” safety concerns. The finished chamber is delivered fully assembled and pressure tested. Site logistics are only needed for scheduling delivery of the station, excavating the hole, pouring a small concrete pad at the bottom of the hole (to

Water Distribution act as ballast), placing the chamber on the pad, securing it to the pad, connecting the water main to the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inlet/outlet piping and then burying it. Conduit ports for electrical power, I/O and telemetry are pre-arranged and all electrical connections are greatly simplified because the interior of the chamber is delivered pre-wired. Quality: Within the factory controlled environment, precise computer-controlled cutting and welding equipment are used to build each station. Factory personnel, who may build 500 stations each year, bring this depth of experience to station fabrication and component assembly. An independent Quality Assurance department checks to ensure work is performed to industry standards. Each station is fully assembled, pressure tested and functionally tested. Capsule longevity: When designed, constructed, coated and properly protected, steel-walled chambers should last as long as, or longer, than concrete valve chambers. Design and quality standards are important. Chambers must be made such that their top and bottom plates are joined using a cold-formed, rolled edge,

double welded, lap seamed weld joint. The lap joint, including continuously full fillet welds on the interior and exterior of the chamber, minimizes corrosion potential and maximizes epoxy coating effectiveness. A proper epoxy coating process ensures that all interior and exterior surfaces receive an adequate thickness of coating. The chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sidewalls are then covered with a flame-retardant in-
sulating material, which is then sprayed with a UV retardant hardening coating. Depending on soil conditions at the site and the size of the station, one or more sacrificial anodes will be supplied. A test box can be supplied, to determine when an anode should be replaced (typically five to ten years). Maintenance requirements: Steel chambers do require some maintenance. continued overleaf...

Water Distribution Anodes need to monitored and changed periodically. Depending on frequency of entry into the station, the floor should be swept periodically. It should be recoated every five to seven years. This recoating will require a worker with a breather pack to solvent wipe the washed and dried floor and to apply a coat of the two-part epoxy coating. Warranty: The chamber manufacturer is solely responsible for the entire station, including delivery to site, start-up, commissioning, training, warranty documentation and any and all operational issues. Despite the fact that there are many components from many different manufacturers, the station manufacturer takes on the full warranty responsibility. Data collection: A key tool for managing distributed fluid systems is pressure and flow data collected from a variety of locations. Control valve chambers are ideal for collecting this data, since they are often located at zone boundaries. This allows the logging of pressure from two zones, at one location. The environment provided by steel
chambers makes the collection of this data easier and more cost-effective. Confined space issues: Ontario Regulation 632/05 defines a confined space as a fully or partially enclosed space, that is not designed nor constructed for continuous human occupancy, and in which atmospheric hazards may occur because of its construction, location or contents, or because of work that is done in it. Discussions are being held with the Ministry of Labour to determine whether these steel-walled chambers are not confined spaces. The stations are designed with worker safety and building codes in mind. Harmful fumes cannot enter through the walls of the chamber. As long as electrical power is available, these chambers provide lighting and ventilation, whenever someone is inside. Ventilation is sized to “turn the air over” a minimum of 10 times per hour. Based on the regulation’s definition, it is felt that these chambers should not be considered a confined space. An air monitor should be used when personnel are inside, but no confined space
recovery equipment, or a rescue plan, should be required. In May 2013, an EFI pre-fabricated pressure reducing chamber was installed in a residential area of Barrie. It consisted of a 150 mm fire flow and a 50 mm regular-daily-flow pressure reducing valve, 150 mm and 50 mm insertion flow meters, upstream and downstream pressure transmitters and a cellular-based telemetry system. Installation of the chamber began shortly after it was delivered to the site and the chamber was in place and buried within a few days. The City has ordered three more pressure reducing valve chambers, which were due to be delivered in early December 2013. It has budgeted for additional pre-fabricated chambers in 2014. Other Ontario municipalities have recently ordered four water-tight valve chambers, with more at various stages of project designs that call for similar ones.

Wastewater Sampling CWS standards for TSS and CBOD. The logistical challenges of moving â&#x20AC;&#x153;stuffâ&#x20AC;? around the North are intuitive for anyone who has done work there. The difÂżFXOWLHV RI WKH *ULVH )LRUG WULS DORQH challenge the validity of using the CWS standards in the North. Including the reality that only 50 per cent of the sampling points are accessible and the argument against applying the current CWS framework in the Far North is strengthened.

temperature monitors called â&#x20AC;&#x153;thermistorsâ&#x20AC;? were placed in the sample coolers originating from Grise Fiord. Along the way, temperature spikes that reached 10Â°C occurred when the cooler was opened to put in more wastewater samples from other locations (See Figure 2).

Conclusions Biological systems, such as sewage lagoons and wetlands, are at the mercy of the natural environment and, therefore, inherently variable regardless of latitude.

Operational concerns Maintaining acceptable water quality in potable water storage facilities is an important challenge faced by public utilities. Low turnover rates, poor mixing and short-circuiting, cause stagnant ZDWHU GHDG ]RQHV WKHUPDO VWUDWLÂżFDtion and ice formation. All of these contribute to quality problems, including: loss of residual disinfectant; disinfecWLRQ E\ SURGXFW IRUPDWLRQ QLWULÂżFDWLRQ in chlorinated systems; bacterial reJURZWK DOJDH DQG ELRÂżOP JURZWK DQG taste and odour problems Proper mixing in water storage facilities can eliminate and/or mitigate these problems. By providing suitable mixing of the tank, a homogeneous water mass can be maintained with equal concentrations of residual disinfectant and any unwanted elements. This helps to ensure that the samples taken, often at a single location, are representative of all of the water in the tank and allow for early detection of any problems. To address these concerns and maintain high quality water, the Region conducted an investigation of methods to encourage tank mixing, reduce stratLÂżFDWLRQ DQG XOWLPDWHO\ LPSURYH ZDWHU quality within the storage vessel as well as the distribution system. The passive system scored the highest on performance, maintainability and operability.

he Regional Municipality of York is a two-tiered confederation of nine local municipalities that has more than 30 steel water-storage structures providing critical storage requirements for these communities. Over the last three years, it has installed more than 10 passive mixing systems in these systems to improve water quality by decreasing water age and stagnant zones.
Figure 2. Magna elevated tank chlorine residuals versus flow.
Four pilot test sites were selected for the installation of the passive mixing systems: Ridge Road in Aurora, and Newmarketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magna Tower, London Road Tower and Bathurst Tank. Based on the evaluation of the pilot test sites, the Region added mixing systems to seven additional sites. Dropping chlorine residual It was suspected that the mixing systems installed in the storage tanks were
not functioning as intended. Chlorine residual levels measured at the storage facilities were showing a rapid drop during drain cycles, which created concerns with respect to the water quality within the distribution system.

The Region is studying the water demands of the pressure district systems of the two elevated tanks, to determine whether it is possible to increase tank turnover and reduce water age, by reducing storage capacity during lower demand periods. The addition of mixing systems has allowed the Region to produce a consistent residual leaving the storage facilities. Previously, it had to drain the towers due to water quality.

Fusible PVC pipe developed to protect riverside community from flooding
stablished in 2010 through the adoption of the Keswick Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP), Keswick on the River is a new community in southwest Edmonton, Alberta. It is bounded by the North Saskatchewan River to the west and the Windemere Golf and Country club to the north. The 200-acre neighbourhood is named for a town in northwest England and features more than 1,500 homes that offer old world English architecture, designed to look and feel like a country village.

Centralized treatment of fracking wastewaters becoming a viable solution By Jeff Easton
s hydraulic fracturing wells increase in number, so does the stress on surface and ground water supplies. Large volumes of water are consumed in the fracking process, with one well needing up to one million gallons (almost 24,000 barrels) of fresh water for the fracking process alone. Equally important is the increasing volume of wastewater generated from fracking wells, which requires disposal or recycling. Up to 60 per cent of the water injected into a wellhead (potentially 600,000 gallons) during the fracking process will discharge back out of WKH ZHOO VKRUWO\ WKHUHDIWHU DV Ă&#x20AC;RZEDFN wastewater. Thereafter, and for the life of the wellhead, it will discharge up to 100,000 gallons per day of produced wastewater. %HFDXVH ZDWHU LV WKH EDVH Ă&#x20AC;XLG DQG biggest component in hydraulic fracturing, it is a critical factor in the operation and economics of shale oil and JDV SURGXFWLRQ %XW VLJQLÂżFDQW DQG growing water management challenges are impacting hydraulic fracturing. Fresh water and wastewater operating procedures drafted in the late 1990s are facing increasingly stiffer governmental regulations on water availability and disposal limitations. One solution which integrates all aspects of fresh water and wastewater management and optimizes the utilization of water resources is a centralized approach to the treatment and reuse of wastewater. Centralization provides treatment and reuse of wastewater from a large number of wellheads both in the initial frack and throughout the wellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifecycle. Furthermore, a centralized system can more easily access and utilize alternative water sources, such as municipal wastewater facilities, which would otherwise be inaccessible. Wellheads producing shale oil and gas are long-term processes, typically exceeding 20 years. However, conventional solutions for handling fresh wa-

Impounding wastewater for evaporation in surface ponds, trucking water over long distances to deep-well injection sites, and WUHDWLQJ Ă&#x20AC;RZEDFN ZDVWHZDWHU IRU UHXVH at the wellhead, are all short-term options which do not address critical longterm issues.

Overcoming the key challenges for motor control center replacement By Syed Raza
Motor Control Center (MCC) is major power distribution equipment regularly found in any water/ wastewater treatment plant or, in general, any facility that requires electrical power. MCCs are enclosed assemblies, divided into sections with a common power bus. As the name suggests, they consist of motor control circuits, motor starters, feeder breakers and panel boards. In Canada, low voltage MCCs are generally rated for 600V, 60Hz, 3phase, 3 or 4wire systems. Just like every other piece of electrical equipment, MCCs have a certain design life, after which they either need to be refurbished, or be completely replaced with a new one. Replacement can become quite a complicated process, especially if the equipment powered by the MCC cannot be shut down for an extended period of time, due to process constraints. For example, a booster pump feeding an old, underground water supply pipe, cannot be shut down for an extended period of time because small cracks in the old pipe could cause groundwater to infiltrate. Another common challenge is the unavailability of accurate MCC as-built wiring diagrams. MCCs can undergo numerous upgrades and modifications over time, for which the record data may not be available. The following is a step-by-step guide to a typical replacement process which, for this example, assumes that the new MCC will be installed at the existing MCC’s location. Step 1 – Reconstruction of wiring diagram based on field verification: This step is only required, if the updated “as-built” drawings are not available. It can be easily done by hiring a licensed electrician, who can trace down the wiring for each individual load, with the help of plant operation staff. Step 2 – Designing the replacement Motor Control Center: This step involves the electrical engineer designing the MCC replacement.

It will also require input from the client regarding any specific MCC make or model that is standardized or preferred. It is highly recommended that digital power meters be installed, as they can provide valuable data on consumption. Measuring and monitoring energy consumption is an important factor for sustainable infrastructure design and development, highlighted in rating systems such as LEED® and Envision™. The design engineer can also incorporate additional control and communication features for remote control or alarms display. This can be done by either providing the hardwired dry contacts wiring to the plant SCADA system, or by using communication protocols such as DeviceNet or Profibus, etc. Step 3 – Determination of critical loads: This step requires substantial coordination and input from the operation
staff. MCCs typically handle different types of loads, some of which can be shut down for extended periods. Others may only be switched off for a very limited time period. For example, in a wastewater treatment plant, it may not be as critical to power off the space heaters, but the raw sewage pumps may not be kept off for long. As a result of this step, a critical load table is created, identifying all critical loads and the maximum allowable downtime for each (See Figure 1). The larger the critical load list grows, the more complicated the MCC replacement process becomes. Step 4 – Designing temporary power distribution scheme: The next step is to design the temporary power supply for critical loads. Based on the location of the MCC and the critical loads, temporary feeders and

Step 5 – Staging the shutdowns and transfer of critical loads on temporary starters and feeders: This step is generally carried out once the new MCC has been manufactured,
delivered to the site and passed site inspection. Critical loads are shifted to the temporary starters one by one. This can be done in a single shut down, or multiple ones, depending on the maximum allowable shut down time for each critical load. Step 6 – Replacement of the MCC: Once all the critical loads are successfully transferred to the temporary arrangement, the existing MCC is decommissioned. The new MCC is installed and all non-critical loads are connected to it and tested for proper functioning. Step 7 – Staging the shutdowns and retransfer of loads on the MCC: Finally, the critical loads are transferred back to the new MCC. Again, this can be done in a single or multiple steps, depending on the allowable shut down for each critical load. This list of steps is not all inclusive and other factors need to be considered, based on different site conditions and new code requirements. Syed Raza, P.Eng., is a LEED Green Associate with R.V.

Advanced gas detection technology supports Arctic greenhouse gas research
ying within the frozen soil and ice of the Arctic are enormous quantities of greenhouse gases (GHG). As melting permafrost could cause a dangerous climate tipping point, a clear understanding of the relationship between GHG in the atmosphere and in the ice/soil is vital. There can be few more challenging environments than the High Arctic for monitoring gases, but PhD researcher Martin Brummell and professors Steven Siciliano and Rich Farrell from the University of Saskatchewan have conducted a successful research expedition. :RUNLQJ LQ WKH ÂżHOG LPSRVHV D QXPber of requirements for analytical equipment.

To work in the Canadian Arctic, the team used a Gasmet DX4015 FTIR analyzer. Brummell says that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was also the ideal choice because, as an FTIR analyzer, it is able to monitor almost any gas. This is normally a feature of mains powered laboratory instruments, but the DX4015 is portable and powered by a small generator, so it is ideal for monitoring in remote locations.â&#x20AC;?

The analyzer was used to monitor the production, consumption and atmospheric exchange of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. All three of these greenhouse gases are major components of natural biogeochemical cycles. They are each released and up-taken by soil microbes in the Arctic. A set of simple, perforated steel tubes was driven into the soil, to the point of the permafrost threshold. In-

Furthermore, measurement of gas concentrations at different depths enabled direct comparison with soil analyses. 8VLQJ )7,5 LQ WKH ÂżHOG The Gasmet DX4015 is a portable FTIR gas analyzer for ambient air analysis. FTIR, an abbreviation for Fourier-transform infrared, is an interferometric spectroscopic instrument (interferometer) that uses the infrared com-
ponent of the electromagnetic spectrum for measurements. A Fourier-transform function is applied by the interferometer to obtain the absorption spectrum as a function of frequency or wavelength. Consequently, the DX4015 is able to simultaneously analyze up to 50 gas compounds. The analyzer is typically set up to measure a variety of different gases, including VOCs, acids, aldehydes, and inorganic compounds such as CO (carbon monoxide), CO2 (carbon dioxide), and N2O (nitrous oxide). The DX4015 is operated using a laptop computer running Calcmetâ&#x201E;˘ software, a program that not only controls the analyzer but also undertakes the analysis. It is capable of simultaneous GHWHFWLRQ LGHQWLÂżFDWLRQ DQG TXDQWLÂżFDtion of ambient gases, which gives the DX4015 its ability to simultaneously analyze multiple gases in near real-time.

ow do we go about changing the way our youth are taught when it comes to water, a life-force so vital to our existence, in the midst of different governments, and changing teaching methods and curriculum? This article looks back at a movement in Ontario that started more than 20 years ago in which thousands of people have been involved, all equally or more passionate and capable about educating our young people about water than I am. I just happen to be writing from the perspective of someone who has been there from the beginning.

Public Education a huge success that the team committed to, and successfully pulled off the second Children’s Groundwater Festival in Milton in 1995. A watershed moment After two successful festivals and seeing the potential for this type of water education beyond the classroom take place in communities elsewhere, we faced a watershed moment. How could this volunteer-led educational initiative not only survive, but become a mainstream method of education for a new generation of water savvy kids across the province? After much debate, the original steering committee decided to approach new potential partners in their home communities, along with support from some of the initial team members. Thus, the concept of children’s groundwater, or water festivals expanded to communities in Waterloo, York, Durham and Peel Regions. Thanks to continued support from all the partners, these festivals are heading into their 21st consecutive year in more than 27 communities across Ontario.

They have reached more than 500,000 elementary students, and each festival is constantly evolving and growing to meet the ever-changing educational needs and expectations. The success of the children’s water festivals across the province has been based on numerous factors, including: • Each festival is designed to be fun and interactive. If students learn in a fun setting, the message will have a lasting effect. • People are becoming more concerned about the environment, especially water. They want to be more aware about water conservation and protection for future use, as these concepts can be discussed and managed right in the home. • Teachers appreciate the opportunity to have experts educate their students about water in a fun setting, with teaching at all activity centres linked to the Ontario curriculum. • The festival takes a hands-on approach from which all benefit. After 20 years, there have been stu-
dents who have attended a water festival as an elementary student, come back and volunteer to instruct at an activity centre as a high school or university student. Then they graduate from university to work in the water/environmental / engineering ¿eld and come back and sit as a member of a local festival steering committee! Now that’s full circle – just like water makes its way through the water cycle! More water education beyond the classroom As the children’s water festival model continued to expand across Ontario, the need also developed for the sharing of ideas and resources for other educational opportunities. In 2001, the not-for-pro¿t organization, the Children’s Water Education Council (CWEC) was formed as a group of education and water professionals. Its mandate was to respect our water sources, and preserve it for future generations through greater awareness of, and appreciation for, this vital life force. The organization, which received

WERF researching cooperative management of water from all sources The Water Environment Research Foundation is researching the institutional issues and governance structures impacting established water, wastewater and stormwater management agencies. “Institutional Issues for Green-Gray Infrastructure Based on Integrated ‘One Water’ Management and Resource Recovery,” aims to understand what institutional challenges have faced organi]ations engaged in the 2ne Water approach, and more importantly what strategies and actions were adopted to overcome them. One Water is the concept that water from all sources must be managed cooperatively to meet economic, social, and environmental needs. WERF is seeking to: • Understand the current state of institutional barriers or opportunities for more integrated planning and management of water services. • Illustrate the institutional issues iden-
tified, furthering discussion about how barriers may have been overcome. • Capture key institutional challenges and associated solutions confronting the development of a 2ne Water approach in a useful framework. • 2rgani]e a series of workshops to engage international experts on this topic. WERF Program Director Theresa Connor said that water management governance systems and institutions developed over the past century, may now be barriers to effectively meeting current and future challenges. “Since institutions are dif¿cult to change, it is critical to look at how communities are overcoming these barriers, so that we can learn from each other and ¿nd ways to collectively manage our water resources for the needs of our communities, our economy and our environment,” said Connor. The contract for this research was awarded to the Institute for Sustainable Futures at University of Technology in Sydney. WERF is collaborating with the Water Research Foundation and Water Research Australia in this effort. www.werf.org

More and more water and sewage treatment plants are operating at reduced staff levels. What happens to a lone worker should they get into trouble? Who will respond and how will they know to respond? The ability to rapidly react to an employees call for help, whether activated manually or automatically, can mean the difference between life or death. The G.E.M. monitors from 1 to 16 workers. The worker wears a small transmitter which incorporates a solid state motion detector. Should the worker be rendered unconscious, the motion detector activates local audio and visual alarms. The alarm is transmitted to a local receiver that provides a verbal alarm that can be sent out over telephone or radio. A relay contact Is also available at the receiver for additional alarms. Should the worker be hurt, but not rendered unconscious, a panic button on the transmitter can be activated to manually transmit an alarm. An 8 second pre-alert warns the worker before the actual alarm is activated. Each pocket sized transmitter runs from a 9 Vdc battery and the receiver operates from 115 Vac and has an internal battery back-up in the event of a power failure. The transmitted signal is good for 3/4 mile line of sight.

Water utilities implement biological filtration treatment processes
New report studies changes in water use
The Water Research Foundation is helping water utilities improve their understanding of monitoring and controlling Eiological Âżltration through a recently completed monitoring and control guidance manual. %iological Âżltration %F is an affordaEle effective Eut not commonly used water treatment process that reduces multiple contaminants and increases the biological stability in distribution systems while minimizing the production of waste streams and the formation of disinfection by-products. +istorically drinNing water utilities in North America have underutilized BF because of the perception that it is most suitable for wastewater treatment. Utilities interested in utilizing BF do so without the support of industry-accepted BF design operations and treatment guidelines and with limited monitoring and control tools. Water Research Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research project â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Monitoring and Control Toolbox for Biological Filtration Â´ provides a BF monitoring and controlling toolbox that contains practical innovative and standard monitoring tools for utilities looNing to boost their technological understanding and application of BF. The guidance manual describes pros and cons of tools how they are applied typical measurement ranges recommended monitoring freTuencies and related costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Biological Âżltration can play a Ney role in helping water utilities meet the increasing demand for high-Tuality water Â´ explained Rob Renner (xecutive 'irector of WRF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While BF has been in use for decades its adoption in North America has been fairly limited. This research project provides a comprehensive collection of information and tools to help the water community understand and apply related best practices.Â´ As part of this study BF practices at 21 utilities in the U.S. and Canada were evaluated resulting in the development of benchmarNs for design operations and monitoring as well as the identiÂżcation of optimal control methods. www.waterrf.org.
A new study by the Water Research Foundation examines the potential impact of climate change on water demand and what it might mean to water utilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Changes in water use under regional climate change scenariosÂ´ studied anticipated water demand and use patterns under a range of climate change scenarios. ,t is categorized by speciÂżc customer class and industry sector so water utilities may better plan for and respond to changing water use patterns as a result of climate change. The study resulted in several principal conclusions spanning several topics that are important to evaluating the potential effects of climate change on water demand. These include: â&#x20AC;˘ Weather sensitive demands are prevalent and will be affected by climate change. Weather-sensitive water demands exist in virtually all places in the country. They account for a substantial portion of total municipal water demands in most regions and a majority of total demand in some areas and times of the year. â&#x20AC;˘ Evaluation of weather and climate impacts involves a host of technical modeling requirements, choices, and tradeoffs. With regard to water use modeling an over-riding conclusion is that only certain types of models specifically those that contain and relate weather and climate indicators to water use are relevant for evaluating the potential effects of climate change. â&#x20AC;˘ Derivation and processing of climate model projections is a data intensive process. â&#x20AC;˘ Climate projections and estimated demand impacts vary geographically. â&#x20AC;˘ A range of options could assist in adapting to demand impacts. According to Rob Renner (xecutive 'irector of WRF impacts of these changes on water demand will vary because of different geographical sensitivities of demand to climate and weather. The impacts on demand could be relatively large for some locations and relatively moderate or even minor for others. www.waterrf.org.
