Comment by Steve Davey

Was Obama’s nixing of Alberta’s Keystone XL pipeline a wise decison?


ncreasingly, environmental protection, cost-benefit analysis and risk assessment have become the holy trinity of debate, when it comes to any project larger than a backyard flower bed. The most recent example of this happened on January 18th, when a U.S. Presidential Permit was denied for TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline. Its purpose was to carry tar sands derived crude oil from Alberta, to refineries near the Gulf of Mexico. "While we are disappointed, TransCanada remains fully committed to the construction of Keystone XL," said Russ Girling, the company’s president and chief executive officer. He added that plans are already underway to largely maintain the construction schedule of the project and that TransCanada will re-apply for a Presidential Permit. "Until this pipeline is constructed, the U.S. will continue to import millions of barrels of conflict oil from the Middle East and Venezuela and other foreign countries who do not share the democratic values Canadians and Americans are privileged to have," added Girling. "Thousands of jobs continue to hang in the balance if this project does not go forward." Joe Oliver, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, posted this response on his ministry’s website: Canada is on the edge of an historic choice: to diversify our energy markets away from our traditional trading partner in the United States, or to continue with the status quo. Unfortunately, there are environmental and other radical groups that would seek to block this opportunity to diversify our trade. Their goal is to stop any major project no matter what the cost to Canadian families in lost jobs and economic growth. No forestry. No mining. No oil. No gas. No more hydro-electric dams. These groups threaten to hijack our regulatory system to achieve their radical ideological agenda. They seek to exploit any loophole they can find, stacking public hearings with bodies to ensure that delays kill good projects. They use funding 6 | January 2012

from foreign special interest groups to undermine Canada’s national economic interest. They attract jet-setting celebrities with some of the largest personal carbon footprints in the world to lecture Canadians not to develop our natural resources. Anyone looking at the record of approvals for certain major projects across Canada cannot help but come to the conclusion that many of these projects have been delayed too long. In many cases, these projects would create thousands upon thousands of jobs for Canadians, yet they can take years to get started due to the slow, complex and cumbersome regulatory process. For example, the Mackenzie Valley Gas Pipeline review took more than nine years to complete. In comparison, the western expansion of the nation-building Canadian Pacific Railway under Sir John A. Macdonald took four years. Under our current system, building a temporary ice arena on a frozen pond in Banff required the approval of the federal government. This delayed a decision by two months two valuable months to assess something that thousands of Canadians have been doing for over a century. Despite all the innovations in renew-

able resources, a lot of experts concede that the world will depend on oil for a significant part of its energy needs for decades, largely because it is still the most plentiful, portable and energy dense fuel source available. It is interesting to note that a few days after the Keystone XL announcement, senior Iranian lawmakers threatened to use their navy to block oil tanker traffic in the Persian Gulf. A serious situation, given that almost 20% of the world’s crude oil passes through the narrow Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf. In response, the U.S. and its allies immediately said that they would take swift action to keep the Strait open. One can only wonder how plausible this action would be, if environmental approval were required before nuclear powered aircraft carriers and hundreds of supersonic aircraft could be deployed. Determining the true environmental impacts of using various sources of oil is not a simple process. While the extraction of liquid crude oil from the Middle East, is much easier and cleaner than what is needed to extract it from Alberta’s tar sands, security and delivery of the product are much more complicated. So, when the ongoing economic cost of maintaining peace in the Persian Gulf, not to mention the environmental risks associated with hundreds of oil tankers plying the world’s oceans, are factored in, one could argue that the environmental footprint of Alberta’s tar sands crude and the Keystone XL pipeline, are not as bad as they are made out to be. Certainly, environmental protection issues are paramount, when evaluating the construction of a 2,673-kilometre pipeline, but President Obama would be wise to consider the bigger picture, when reviewing TransCanada’s revised Keystone application.

Canada commits $1.2B for climate change Canada's Environment Minister, Peter Kent has announced that the federal government is contributing $1.2 billion to support international efforts to help developing countries reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate. "Canada came to Durban to make a real contribution toward a global solution to this global issue; this signals that," said Minister Kent. "We are hoping for an agreement that covers all emitters and provides support for developing countries that can most use the help." Between 2010 and 2012, developed countries committed to provide up to US$30 billion in fast-start financing to countries that are the most vulnerable to climate change. Canada supports the 2009 Copenhagen Accord, which is a significant breakthrough in the global effort to address climate change. According to the Minister, this $1.2 billion contribution in fast-start financing is an important way in which Canada is meeting its commitments.

the wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process at the R. M. Schahfer Generating Station in Wheatfield, Indiana. This project will completely transform an existing 30-year old plant treatment system into one capable of handling the scrubber chloride purge stream. According to IDI, the retrofit approach is far more cost-effective than building a new separate system. Also, it will remove up to 2 percent of the suspended solids and other contaminants indigenous to the purge stream and make the plant fully compliant with stringent permit effluent limits. An added challenge is the need to meet an additional effluent requirement for mercury reduction to a level of 35 parts per trillion. This will be accomplished using technologies developed by IDI for FGD wastewater applications. The IX™ ion exchange process for mercury removal was developed in collaboration with Dow Chemical, and has been extensively piloted at multiple generating stations. The new wastewater treatment system is expected to go online in early 2014. www.degremont.ca

The Regional Municipality of Durham was presented with the Recycling Council of Ontario’s (RCO) Platinum Municipal Diversion Award, in recognition of waste minimization and diversion efforts.

8 | January 2012

In working towards a 70 per cent diversion rate, the Region continues to develop new initiatives, while updating current programs. Its residents can now drop off the following items at the waste management facilities: temporary signs (made from corrugated plastic, plastic film or paperboard), white expanded foam polystyrene, and porcelain bathroom fixtures. In addition, residents no longer have to pay for dedicated loads of electronic or electrical waste, household hazardous waste, tires or bale wrap that are dropped off. The Region has also updated its multi-residential recycling program, to further increase recycling in condominiums and apartment buildings. www.durhamregionwaste.ca

Ontario MTO wins environmental award

sioner of Ontario's 2011 Recognition Award for using bioretention cells and rubber modified asphalt (RMA) at a carpool lot in Beamsville. Bioretention cells mimic the natural hydrologic cycle, while detaining rainwater runoff sediments. They also act as habitat for wildlife, improve air quality and reduce the urban heat island effect. Approximately 4,000 cubic metres of runoff are filtered through the system each year. RMA is made from scrap rubber tires, ground and conventional hot mix asphalt. About 4 tonnes of scrap rubber tires were used for this project, preventing 624 tires from ending up in the landfill. www.eco.on.ca

Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation recently won the Environmental Commis-

In a special report, the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, Gord Miller says the provincial government must come up with a new strategy to stem the continuing decline in Ontario's species and natural spaces. "The Ontario govern-

ment did adopt a Biodiversity Strategy in 2005," he said. "Unfortunately, it expired in 2010, and the government has so far chosen not to adopt an updated plan." In 2010, Canada met with almost 200 nations in Nagoya, Japan, and agreed on 20 biodiversity conservation targets that should be achieved by 2020. But the Commissioner says most of the constitutional responsibility for meeting these targets lies with Ontario and the other provincial governments. "Efforts to halt the loss of biodiversity must be implemented at the provincial level if they are to be effective. And Ontario won't be able to do that unless it has a new Biodiversity Strategy." In Ontario, the most significant threats to the province's species and natural spaces are habitat degradation, climate change, invasive species, overexploitation and pollution. The Commissioner has previously warned about the lack of action to safeguard the province's 200 species at risk such as snapping turtles, cougars, and Jefferson salamanders. Gord Miller has said the government also needs to address the threats from invasive species like Asian carp, and protect wetlands and woodlands in southern Ontario. www.eco.on.ca

nium nitrate, a fertilizer. Thirty-three substances in use in Canadian commerce, in several physical states, and some substances classed in their different forms are now added to the Environmental Emergency Regulations, for a total of 41 unique listed additions. Facilities that handle these substances at, or above, regulated quantities are required to develop environmental emergency (E2) plans, if they are not already in place. E2 plans require that individuals and industrial facilities using or storing hazardous substances listed in the regulations have plans for and can manage the consequences of an unintended release of the substance into the environment. The amendments include an exemption that reduces administrative burdens for some facilities in the propane gas sector. Facilities with propane in storage containers are excluded from the E2 regulations if their storage containers of less than 10 tonnes are located at least 360 metres from their property boundaries. www.ec.gc.ca

SK watermain break results in fine Clark Builders has been ordered to pay $285,000, after pleading guilty to one count under the Fisheries Act. This relates to the release of approximately 12 million litres of chlorinated water into

the North Saskatchewan River following the striking of a water main during a construction project in July 2009. Sample analysis of the chlorinated water determined that it was harmful to fish. The water main was hit by a sub-contractor working for Clark Builders. An investigation by Environment Canada determined that Clark Builders, as construction manager of the project, failed to obtain underground locations for the water main prior to excavating for foundation pilings for a pool building.

NS village gets financial support Federal, provincial and municipal funding of more than $1.5 million was announced recently to help the Village of Baker-Brook, Nova Scotia, address the safety of its drinking water.

When combined with existing information, such as drilling reports, it creates a clearer picture of underground water resources. The Atlas complements other work being done across the province, including work in the Lower Athabasca region, to better understand and manage potential effects from development activities on the environment. This work builds on decades of extensive geological and groundwater mapping already completed in this area. www.ags.gov.ab.ca

The plan is to cover the most contaminated sediment, an area of 25.6 hectares, with a 15 to 20 centimetre cap of clean sand. This sediment is contaminated by mercury and PCBs from historical uncontrolled wastewater discharges, from the local pulp and paper mill, a chemical plant, and the municipal wastewater plant.Contaminated sediment has been found as far as a kilometre from the shoreline. This has negatively affected water quality and the eco-system. Funding for the project includes a $3 million settlement from Ball Packaging, former owner of the now closed pulp and paper mill, and $1.6 million in provincial funding. Work will begin in the spring of 2012 and is expected to be completed by the fall.

New insight into AlaskaĘźs permafrost A pioneering airborne electromagnetic survey in the Yukon Flats near Fort Yukon, Alaska, by the US Geological Survey has yielded unprecedented images of the presence and absence of permafrost to depths of roughly 328 feet. It captured images of permafrost over a substantially larger area, and with greater data density, than has been previously achieved using boreholes and groundbased geophysics. "Liquid water conducts electricity better than ice," explained USGS director Marcia McNutt. "We can detect from the air the weak magnetic fields generated by those electric currents, thus distinguishing quickly and easily melted from frozen ground. This new technology, and the maps of changing permafrost, will be valuable for both climate change research and engineering in the challenging Alaskan environment." Because the Yukon Flats is near the boundary between continuous permafrost to the north and discontinuous permafrost

to the south, it is an important place to study permafrost dynamics. Dr. Burke Minsley, geophysicist in the USGS’ Crustal Geophysics and Geochemistry Science Center in Denver and lead author of the study in Geophysical Research Letters, and his team surveyed more than 116 square miles, centered 140 miles northeast of Fairbanks. Their data captures in detail the distribution of permafrost and its relation to surface and groundwater features. It also captures the history of the Yukon River lateral migration over a period of roughly 1,000 years, as manifested as a thawed region of permafrost. Knowledge of the current permafrost

distribution is critical for analyses designed to evaluate hydrologic and ecologic consequences of climate warming. It also provides a baseline for future investigation of the dynamic evolution of permafrost systems. In addition, the study is important because it presents a methodology for assessing permafrost in other sub-Arctic and Arctic regions. The airborne approach allows periodic monitoring of perennially frozen ground over broad areas, as climatic warming decreases the extent of permafrost and accelerates the emission of greenhouse gases. www.usgs.gov

How do you measure water use? Cities and industries need data, smartplanning tools, better approaches and more cost-effective best practices about water use to ensure a successful, sustainable future that takes into account these new realities. Veolia Water has developed the Water Impact Index, a tool that can plan long-term projects to ensure long-term water supplies. Traditionally, water is measured by volume. While this helps raise awareness, it is insufficient for representing impact to a water resource and the environment. The Index expands on existing volume-based water measurement tools; incorporates additional factors like resource stress and water quality; and, provides a better way to establish the implications of water management.

Until they found out about and used a new product called Waste Blaster, operations personnel had to clean sludge and grit from 22 tank floors and fall troughs using traditional methods. The tool pushes and pulls stuck materials with an aluminum rubber edged blade. By using them, plant staff cut cleaning times by one third, which saved an estimated $11,000, and eliminated squeegee costs. According to the manufacturer, plant personnel also reported using 1/3 less cleaning water. Waste Blasters are available in Canada. www.waycoolproduct.com

four of its US subsidiaries have agreed to resolve alleged Clean Water Act violations. These include unpermitted discharges of stormwater at 21 stone, gravel, sand, asphalt and ready-mix concrete facilities. Lafarge will implement a nationwide evaluation and compliance program at 189 of its similar facilities in the United States to ensure they meet Clean Water Act requirements. The company will also pay a penalty of $740,000 and implement two supplemental environmental projects, in which the company will complete conservation easements to protect approximately 166 acres in Maryland and Colorado. It is estimated that Lafarge will spend approximately $8 million over five years to develop and maintain this compliance program. The company will also develop and implement an extensive management, training, inspections, and reporting system to increase oversight of its operations and compliance with stormwater requirements at all facilities that it owns or operates.

New projects to clean up Lake Winnipeg Almost $400,000 in federal funding has been announced for nine new community projects under the Lake Winnipeg Basin Stewardship Fund. Initiatives supported are high-impact projects that reduce nutrient loads and improve the overall ecological sustainability of the lake and its watershed. In previous rounds of the Lake Winnipeg Basin Stewardship Fund, the Government of Canada announced over $2.0 million to support 37 other community and stakeholder projects. The projects are reducing the amount of phosphorus and other harmful substances entering the lake, restoring urban and rural streams and riverbanks, and educating the public on how to help clean up Lake Winnipeg.

Climate Change

COP17: Reactions from the carbon and climate change industry By Peter Hoskin


lobal leaders have agreed to devise a legally binding agreement to limit climate change warming to two degrees Celsius. The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was held in December 2011 in Durban, South Africa. In a deal forged in the conference’s last hours, 195 countries agreed to work towards a legally binding emissions reduction scheme by 2015, to be implemented by 2020. Reaction to the deal has ranged from praising the compromise as a “historic agreement” to accusing it of giving in to polluters at the expense of the planet. For insight into the opinions of thought leaders about the results achieved at COP17, I interviewed leading professionals within the carbon and climate change industry: • Dan Staniaszek, Sustainability Consulting Ltd. • Cedric Bleuez, Carbon Market Data. • Lisa Zentner, Globe Electric Company Inc. The following are their responses to my questions: 1. China and the United States ended their long-time coalition of the unwilling and joined a historic UN climate deal in Durban on the final day of COP 17. How important do you think it is that the U.S. and China have agreed to reach a legally binding agreement on pollution by 2015, to take effect in 2020? Dan Staniaszek: This is a necessary, but not sufficient response by the U.S. and China. Clearly, without the world’s worst two emitters, one a developed country and the other a developing one, there would be no hope of a meaningful agreement. However, leaving it until 2020 to take effect is, according to most climate scientists, leaving it too late. Cedric Bleuez: In the last few years, China has been much more proactive than the U.S. on the climate change mitigation front. Lisa Zentner: The U.S. in particular had to come to the table after not having ratified Kyoto. It would have been disas18 | January 2012

What are your thoughts on this? Cedric Bleuez: The world is currently losing some precious time before taking seriously the threat of climate change and deciding on some real action on a global scale. Lisa Zentner: When a conversation ensues involving such a wide scope of possibilities and an even wider number of players, the decisions reached are always going to lack punch. Every developing and industrialized country must individually implement legislation to help reduce

guage of success. I guess there is something to be said for keeping Kyoto alive, as it’s the only game in town. Cedric Bleuez: Let’s say it is not a failure. It will be possible to answer this question only in 2015, if a legally binding agreement on pollution is signed by then, including the major polluters of the planet (i.e., China and the U.S.). Lisa Zentner: I think whenever you get the world’s leaders to agree to come to the table to discuss such critical issues, it’s a win. 4. Is this a step forward for the world

and public opinion that surround these COP meetings bring much-needed focus to the policy that our countries must quickly develop to reduce and reward appropriate fossil-fuel use and behaviour. 5. What do you predict will be the ef-

fect on businesses? Cedric Bleuez: Businesses will have to take the Durban deal into account when designing their business strategies beyond 2020 (which is quite a long distance, businesswise). By 2020, oil prices will probably be much higher than today. This will represent a big driver of business strategies, but also a driver of strong energy efficiency and clean energy policies for governments. It’s already the case today but this trend will increase dramatically. Lisa Zentner: To comment specifically on the poor performance of Canada at these talks: as a result, we have seen and will continue to see the emergence of provincial and municipal governments and their communities rise up to have a voice above the federal government by implementing plans to reduce emissions and encourage the growth of the green economy.

Wastewater Treatment

Canadian know-how helps develop wastewater treatment in Armenia By George Katsarov and Armen Sergoyan

Aeration pond in the village of Parakar has a working volume of 3,500 m3.


rmenia is a landlocked country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. It is in the highlands surrounding the mountains of Ararat. A former republic of the Soviet Union, it is now a democratic nation-state with an ancient and historic cultural heritage. The Kingdom of Armenia was established around 600 BC and reached its height between 95 and 66 BC, becoming one of the most powerful kingdoms of its time within the region. It became the first state to adopt Christianity, in the early years of the 4th century. The many historic and cultural monuments, monasteries, churches and relics spread around the country provide Armenia with great potential as an international tourist destination. Yerevan, the capital, is a vibrant city of more than a million people with modern infrastructure, a metro system, wide boulevards, an opera house, theatres, new residential buildings, busy commercial streets, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, banks and many impressive monuments. As an emerging economy, Armenia is currently in negotiations with the European Union, and may become an associate member in the near future. The government of Armenia holds European integration as a key priority in its foreign policy, and has made a strong commitment to converge its environmental legis22 | January 2012

lation towards EU directives. It has established a Ministry of Nature Protection and introduced taxes for air and water pollution and solid waste disposal. These revenues are used for environmental protection. In 2004, the government adopted a new water code and is focused on the reconstruction of wastewater treatment plants. This is being carried out both by urban infrastructure development projects and by local and regional projects for water resources conservation and management. The task of protecting the environment has been taken very seriously by public and private organizations, educational institutions, municipalities, engineering firms and others. JINJ Engineering Co., one of the major design and construction management firms in Yerevan, has completed a number of large projects involving design and construction of water supply stations, distribution networks and wastewater treatment facilities in various towns in Armenia, including project management and training programs for the operating personnel. JINJ Engineering has worked closely with the Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO), which provides technical assistance on a volunteer basis to developing nations for the transfer of know-how and the training of personnel in the environmental engineering field. The visit of an Armenian engineer to

Canada, sponsored by CESO, has helped JINJ to get first-hand knowledge of modern natural wastewater treatment technologies used in Canada, where the climatic conditions are very similar to those in Armenia. Armenia’s first lagoon system Based on its knowledge of modern technology and its experience in Canada, JINJ Engineering has designed and managed the construction of a lagoon system for municipal wastewater treatment for the village of Parakar, about 15 km from Yerevan. This is the first lagoon system used for wastewater treatment in Armenia. Natural methods for wastewater treatment (stabilization lagoons, constructed wetlands, etc.) are well suited for small communities, and especially in developing countries, because of their low construction and operating costs. They have proven to work effectively in warm climates (South America, Honduras) and cold climates (Canada, the highlands of Bolivia). Many small municipalities in Ontario apply lagoon technology for their wastewater treatment (e.g., Milverton). Currently, more than 6,000 systems in the United States use a lagoon in some capacity during their wastewater treatment process. The wastewater treatment plant for the village of Parakar in Armenia has a design daily flow of 970 m3. Total population served is 10,400, with only 60% of the houses currently connected to the waste-

Wastewater Treatment water collection network. The wastewater generation rate is assumed to be 120 litres/person/day. Wastewater inflow parameters are BOD5 – 280 mg/litre; TSS – 150 mg/litre; required effluent parameters, BOD5 and TSS, 42 mg/litre; maximum temperature +40 C; minimum temperature –30 C. The system includes aeration and settling ponds, with provision for a third clarifying pond to be constructed in the future if required. The aeration pond is 53 m long by 15 m wide (bottom) and 3 m deep, and has a working volume of 3,500 m3. Intended wastewater residence time is up to 3.5 days. The pond has a 4:1 ratio concrete slope. Its bottom and sides are lined with a polymer-based impermeable liner material. Aeration in the pond is supplied by two ROBOX ES15 blowers (one working, one spare), with a capacity of 2.9 m3/min, 0.8 bar pressure, 7.5 kW motor. The blowers are located in a solidly constructed building. Air is supplied from the blowers at a rate of 7.3 m3/min., via 75 mm PE piping, which is laid on the bottom of the pond, and perforated with 4 mm openings. This

Working volume is 90 m3 and the intended residence time is up to four hours. Sludge generated will settle at the bottom of the pond and will be pumped

with 20 mm x 25 mm openings. It is then pumped into the aeration pond by two (one working, one spare) Grundfos submersible pumps with a capacity of 4.3 litre/sec, 2.15 kW motor and 1.2 bar pressure head. Wastewater enters the first aeration pond via a canal with two inlets at one end of the pond, and exits via a collection pipe from the other end. It enters the second pond at one end and exits at the other end. Treated water is then discharged via a buried pipe outside the station into an

open canal leading to an irrigation system. The treatment plant occupies an area of about 4,500 m2 and provides for an additional clarifying pond and sludge beds, if necessary. It will be run by two fulltime operators. Total capital cost for the plant is approximately US$170,000. All labour and materials are local, except for the blowers and pumps. The use of local manpower and materials makes this type of wastewater treatment particularly attractive for developing countries because of low labour costs and job creation for

the fabrication of materials. Operations were due to start by the end of 2011. If they are successful and achieve the required effluent parameters, this design can be offered to other municipalities and even to other developing countries as a model for a population of 10,000 people. Its design can be easily adjusted according to influent and effluent parameters. In Armenia and other developing countries, it is of utmost importance to construct wastewater treatment plants for small towns, villages and decentralized communities using natural energy-saving technologies, such as lagoon systems, that require low capital, operation and maintenance costs. Such wastewater treatment systems have been proven effective and are widely used in many countries around the world, including Canada. George Katsarov, P.Eng., is with CESO.

Improving efficiency and eliminating off-gassing during sodium hypochlorite disinfection By Tom O’Donnell


o most people, sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) is simply known as liquid bleach. To those charged with producing, transporting and metering NaClO for a wide range of industrial applications, there is nothing simple about it. Sodium hypochlorite was first produced in 1789 when the French chemist Claude Berthollet passed chlorine gas through a solution of sodium carbonate. Today, it is formed when chlorine gas is bubbled into a cold and dilute sodium hydroxide solution. One of the most versatile cleaning and disinfecting fluids around, sodium hypochlorite is used for everything from completing basic household chores to disinfecting hospitals, and from being fed as a biocide to inhibit biological growth to removing odours from wastewater. Finished sodium hypochlorite is a clear, slightly yellowish solution with a characteristic odour. In its commonly used liquid-bleach form, it has 5% sodium hypochlorite with a pH of around 11, which makes it irritating to the skin. However, in more concentrated doses, such as 10% - 15% sodium hypochlorite, its pH level rises to 13, which means it will burn and be corrosive to many substances. That is why anyone working with high levels of

sodium hypochlorite must take precautions to protect themselves and the environment. These precautions are taken at industrial facilities everywhere, because sodium hypochlorite is a key component in thousands of production or disinfection processes in industries. These include agriculture, chemical, paint, lime, food, glass, paper, pharmaceutical, synthetics and water treatment. The powerful disinfection and oxidation properties of

sodium hypochlorite allow it to be used in such operations as paper and textile bleaching, drinking water disinfection, preventing the growth of algae and shellfish in industrial or HVAC cooling towers, and disinfection and odour control in wastewater treatment facilities. The challenge of off-gassing In wastewater treatment plant applications, sodium hypochlorite is introduced to the system via metering pumps. In addition to needing to handle it with care because of its elevated pH levels, a critical concern when pumping and metering the liquid is its propensity to “off-gas.” When this happens, the consequences to metering pump operation include air binding and loss of prime, which adversely affect the operational efficiency of the metering pump, leading to compromised metering operations. To combat off-gassing in metering pumps during sodium hypochlorite handling operations, facility managers can implement a number of simple steps to minimize their concerns: • When selecting a pump style for use in sodium hypochlorite metering, always use a high-stroking model with a short stroke length. This type of pump is less likely to allow the accumulation of gas in the pump head.

Environmental Science & Engineering Magazine

Jan2012_ES&E_D6_ES&E 12-02-02 10:51 PM Page 27

Disinfection Series PZ electronic pumps from Neptune Chemical Pump Co., offer high stroking speed (300 strokes per minute) and short stroke length, making gas less likely to accumulate in the pump head. In addition, the pump can be provided with

able with flow rates from 6 to 300 gph at pressures to 150 psi, and constructed with PVC and Kynar which are most suitable for sodium hypochlorite applications. All parts within the gearbox are submerged in oil for extended service life.

Finding the right pump technology for handling sodium hypochlorite is crucial, especially considering the negative effects that off-gassing can have on metering operations.

Neptune Series PZ chlorine metering pump.

• In pumps that are turned off for a length of time, to prevent the gas from accumulating in the suction line or pump head, include a bypass line with an automated valve that can recirculate the sodium hypochlorite when not feeding. • Provide a short, flooded suction-pipe arrangement for the metering pump, with the suction piping sloping down from the storage tank to the pump. This setup will allow any gas bubbles to travel back to the storage tank, rather than to the head of the metering pump. It is also recommended that a metering pump used in sodium hypochlorite service not be top-mounted, unless the concentration is very low. • Ensure that the feed tank of sodium hypochlorite is not located in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight and higher temperatures will increase off-gassing. • Use a sodium hypochlorite solution with the lowest concentration possible for the application and the largest-capacity metering pump possible. This combination will result in less off-gassing. • If possible, use an air vent or purge valve in the head of the metering pump. This will aid in evacuating any trapped sodium hypochlorite gas that may reach the metering pump. Mechanically-actuated diaphragm pumps are effective in combating the deleterious effects of off-gassing, while providing accurate metering. The piston in these pumps is attached to the diaphragm and is normally compressing a spring in its forward (positive) movement. This ensures positive diaphragm return, which assists suction. www.esemag.com

an automatic vent valve to allow any trapped gas to be purged from the pump head. The Series PZ pumps also offer manual control, automatic control, or fully programmable control features in capacities up to 20 gallons per hour. Neptune’s Series 7000 motor-driven pumps feature a straight-through flow path pump head, which does not allow any areas within the pump head for the gas to lodge. They are self-priming and can be provided with automatic frequency control. A micrometer dial can adjust capacity while the pump is running (10:1 turndown). These pumps are avail-

Finding the right pump technology for handling sodium hypochlorite is crucial, especially considering the negative effects that off-gassing can have on metering operations. That is why managers of wastewater treatment facilities, who want to optimize production while simultaneously reducing maintenance costs, downtime and product loss, often choose mechanically-actuated diaphragm metering pumps.

Health & Safety

Lower H2S exposure limits will protect the health of wastewater treatment plant workers By Patrick Coleman


he American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) is a professional association of industrial hygienists and practitioners of related professions. One of its goals is to advance worker protection by providing timely, objective, scientific information to occupational and environmental health professionals. The best-known of ACGIH's operations, is the Threshold Limit Values for Chemical Substances (TLV-CS) Committee. It was established in 1941 and charged with investigating, recommending, and annually reviewing exposure limits for chemical substances. In 1946, the organization adopted its first list of 148 exposure limits, referred to as “maximum allowable concentrations.” The term “TLV” was introduced in 1956. The first compilation of these limits, Documentation of the Threshold Limit Values, was published in 1962. Today's TLV list includes 642 chemical substances and physical agents, as well as 38 biological exposure indices for selected chemicals. TLVs are developed as guidelines to help control health hazards. Intended for use in the practice of industrial hygiene, these recommendations should be interpreted and applied by a person trained in this discipline. In 2010, ACGIH changed its recommended exposure limits for hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The change reduced the time-weighted average (TWA), from 10 to 1 ppm. TWA is the airborne concentration of a biological or chemical agent to which a worker may be exposed for eight hours per day for a 40-hour work week. This change also reduced the short-term exposure limit (STEL) from 15 to 5 ppm. This is the maximum airborne concentration of a biological or chemical agent to which a worker may be exposed in any 15-minute period. Although the ACGIH is not a standards-setting body, its recommendations influence federal and provincial occupational health and safety regulations. ACIGH recommendations are also con28 | January 2012

sidered to be “good practice.” Some provinces, particularly in Eastern Canada, are required to adopt ACGIH threshold limit values as their legislated occupational exposure limit (OEL) values. Other provinces consider scientific and sociopolitical factors in deciding what OEL they will use. The ACGIH’s adoption of a new TLV for H2S will inevitably trigger a review and change in the legislated OELs in Canada. The response of the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador epitomizes the response of most Canadian jurisdictions (Bennett 2010): “The Department will continue to monitor research and development relating to H2S gas detection equipment, the availability of acceptable

methods and equipment to determine compliance with the new 2010 ACGIH exposure limits, and other Canadian jurisdictions adopting ACGIH guidelines as regulatory standards. In the interim, industry is encouraged to consider using the 2010 ACGIH H2S guidelines when evaluating specific workplace situations and conditions and making risk management decisions.” As noted elsewhere (Wagner 2010), this response places both operations staff and professional engineers in the awkward position of having to decide how to best protect staff in light of these new limits: “Many companies are compelled to adopt these values into their safety and industrial hygiene programs. Corporate industrial hygiene professionals who are responsible for employee health, know that effectively controlling exposures, or even monitoring various substances at these levels, may not be practical in their business. However, they have to contend with the possibility that a worker who becomes seriously injured or ill from an alleged exposure to a hazardous substance will retain an attorney, who can present evidence that ACGIH recognizes and publishes guidelines saying that exposures above the recommended levels present serious health hazards.” This change follows those made in other jurisdictions. For example, the UK Health and Safety Executive in 2000 reduced the long-term exposure limit from 10 ppm to 5 ppm (HSE 2000; Costigan 2003). This reflects a concern about adverse health effects caused by day-to-day occupational exposures even to low concentrations (<10 ppm). There is evidence that H2S selectively binds to the enzymes involved in cellular respiration, causing a shift towards anaerobic respiration. Definitions TLV is the concentration for a set duration below which there should be no adverse effect on a worker. Exposure duration may be measured by either the TWA or the STEL. Employers sometimes use the daily average because it is simpler to monitor. TLV-TWA is the weighted av-

Health & Safety erage concentration over the work week, below which a worker will not (normally) experience adverse effects. TLV-STEL is the limit a worker shall not exceed for any 15-minute interval in an 8-hour shift, even if the worker’s overall exposure is below the TLV-TWA value. It is believed that workers can be briefly exposed to this concentration without suffering from irritation, chronic or irreversible tissue damage, dose-ratedependent toxic effects, or narcosis sufficient to increase the chances of accidental injury, impaired self-rescue, or reduced work efficiency. TLV-STEL targets immediate effects, while the TLV-TWA tends to target longterm effects. The worker’s exposure must not exceed either limit.

of 15 ppm was set in 1976. Recent published, peer-reviewed literature suggests that lower concentrations of H2S affected judgement and respiratory function. A 1998 proposal to lower the TLV-TWA was not adopted, but a 2004 proposal to lower the TLV-STEL level to 5 ppm and the TLV-TWA to 1 ppm was ultimately adopted in 2010. The ACGIH’s underlying contention is that the dose-response curve for H2S

appears to start at about 5 ppm (ACGIH 2010b). Thus, a TLV–TWA of 1 ppm should be sufficient to protect against all the unwanted effects of hydrogen sulfide. Peak exposures of 5 ppm may produce minor irritation and a brief change in oxygen uptake, but would not be expected to produce more serious effects on the respiratory, central nervous, or cardiovascular systems. Therefore, a TLV– STEL of 5 ppm is recommended.

One case study in particular has caused the industry to ask if the exposure limit is too high (Bhambhani, Burnham et al. 1997). In that study, 15 men and 13 women were exposed to an atmosphere with 10 ppm hydrogen sulfide for 30 minutes while exercising at 50% of their aerobic capacity. The hydrogen sulfide inhibited the aerobic capacity of the exercising muscle, calling into question the 10-ppm limit. During the ACGIH review process, this dramatic change was challenged by some as being too conservative (CAPP 2009; Wise, Herald et al. 2009). For example, a Canadian Petroleum Products Institute submission to the Ministry of State argues that the limit should be reconsidered for the following reasons (Bristow 2010): • The toxicology data do not justify the ACGIH reductions. • Accurately measuring H2S concentrations down to 1 ppm is not feasible. • There are unintended consequences.

Health & Safety How does H2S exposure affect WWTP operators? In a 2010 issue of the Water Environment Association of Ontario’s magazine Influents, Patrick O’Shaughnessy, of the University of Iowa, outlined the findings of two studies that compared the exposure and health symptoms of wastewater and water treatment plant workers. Exposure rates for all monitored wastewater treatment tasks were less than 1 ppm H2S. Statistically higher ratios of respiratory, ocular and skin irritation, neurology, and gastrointestinal symptoms were shown among WWTP workers compared with water treatment plant workers. Tasks related to sludge handling and plant inspection showed statistically significant associations with memory/concentration difficulties, throat irritation, and stomach pain. What is good practice? Defining “good practice” is difficult in an uncertain regulatory environment. It is obviously not good practice to ignore published, peer-reviewed research. However, it would also be unwise to go too far, until the health and safety community has agreed on any changes.


Still, the employer is responsible for providing a safe work environment. What is deemed “safe” will change whenever new research is published. The advice from the Newfoundland Government is to view the new ACGIH limits as guidelines until they are entrenched in regulations. Design Good odor control practice is to eliminate, reduce, contain, and extract. (Hobson and Yang 2001). Because H2S is odorous, odor management should also lead to a healthier work environment. For example, the design should avoid stripping gas or creating aerosols. Return liquors and imported wastes should be added below the water level and, if possible, downstream of the headworks. Channels and equipment should be contained, and the foul air extracted. Control measures Control measures may include the following: • Ensure that rising mains discharge in a chamber outside of the buildings. • Discourage the formation of H2S within the sewer (e.g., dosing to control septicity).

• Select operating practices that minimize the emission of toxic gases within enclosed areas. • Prevent the escape of toxic gases by enclosure and operation at negative pressure. • Ventilate to dilute toxic gases to a safe level. • Divert and contain contaminated sewage at high-risk plants (e.g., enclosed or buried facilities). Conclusion It is not clear if or when the ACGIHproposed changes will become part of the official health and safety regulations in Canada. Nevertheless, taking them into account is considered “good practice.” Because the onus remains with the design engineer and the employer to provide a safe work environment for wastewater treatment plant staff, they need to consider ACGIH’s recommendations on hydrogen sulfide limits.

Electronic Wastes

Managing e-waste in Canada presents many challenges and opportunities By Harold Schroeder


anagement of the rapidly growing and highly hazardous electronic waste stream is one of the main environmental challenges currently facing Canada, and most other countries. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), between 20 and 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed of globally every year, and this is predicted to increase to between 40 and 70 million tons per year by 2015. Within Canada, volumes of e-waste are reportedly increasing by 4% each year. One source has estimated that more than 5 million computers and monitors alone are thrown away annually by Canadian households and businesses. These form only part of a much larger ewaste stream that includes mobile phones, televisions, office equipment and white goods. It is not just the rapid growth of ewaste, however, that distinguishes it from other forms of municipal waste. The safe and efficient management of the e-waste stream presents particular challenges due to the complex nature of most e-products, which typically include high levels of hazardous substances such as lead, mercury and cadmium. Environmental hazards such as toxic emissions also arise as a by-product of e-waste disposal or recycling processes. However, many e-waste products also contain valuable and scarce materials such as gold, silver, platinum and copper, and their effective recovery for resale and reuse represents a potentially lucrative business activity. Shortcomings in e-waste management At present, neither the environmental nor potential business benefits of e-waste management are being effectively realized. Like most other countries, Canada recycles or recovers only a small proportion of its e-waste, while up to 90% is disposed of in landfill sites or by incineration. Even the most technologically advanced disposal methods and facilities currently in use involve environmental hazards. 32 | January 2012

For example, there is generally a risk of leaching from landfill sites into soil and water resources. Incineration can release toxins into the atmosphere and create potentially hazardous waste slag. Quite apart from these direct environmental impacts, the high rates of disposal of e-waste represent an inefficient use of resources, with associated indirect costs to the environment. At the same time, recycling methods currently in use are not particularly efficient or cost-effective. Often the costs incurred in collection, transportation and processing exceed the value of the materials recovered. The processes involved are still quite labour-intensive, involving dismantling products by hand to extract valuable components, or remove harmful substances before the waste is sent for end-processing using automated methods. New emerging techniques such as robotic disassembly, thermal treatments and hydrometallurgical extraction may improve the efficiency of recycling and help ensure that the high-value outcomes of recycling outweigh the costs

involved. There are also promising developments in the design of electrical and electronic products to reduce the use of hazardous waste and improve their recyclability. Technological innovations in product design techniques and processes include the reduction of lead content in computer screen monitors and the use of shape memory alloys. These are metals and plastics that automatically return to their original shapes when reheated to a certain temperature. But there is a long way to go before advances in technology alone result in a substantial reduction in volumes of e-waste or enable most of the waste to be safely and efficiently recycled. Policies and programs In its efforts to promote the environmentally friendly design of e-products and increase levels of recycling through policy and regulations, Canada is following a global trend in the implementation of extended producer responsibility (EPR) as the dominant e-waste management model. Also known as product stewardship, this is based on the premise that

Jan2012_ES&E_D6_ES&E 12-02-06 5:32 PM Page 33

Electronic Wastes manufacturers should be accountable for the whole life cycle of their products, including recycling or safe disposal. Under this model, producers are required to fund the cost of recycling or disposal, either by implementing their own take-back programs, or by paying fees to a third party to administer an ewaste management scheme on their behalf. The objective is to internalize the costs of e-waste management in the product costs, shifting the responsibility for recycling and disposal from governments and taxpayers to the producers of the products. This provides a direct incentive for manufacturers to incorporate environmental considerations into product design in order to ensure that their products can be priced competitively. Canadian e-waste management strategies and legislation have been determined mainly at the provincial level, but these have been harmonized to at least some extent by the activities of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME). In 2004, CCME endorsed a set of national principles for electronics product stewardship with the objective of promot-

ing product stewardship as the main approach to e-waste management within Canada. In 2009, it adopted a Canadawide action plan for EPR, providing further guidance on the design and implementation of e-waste management regulation and strategies at the provincial level and promoting the use of EPR as an “environmental risk management tool.” Progress in Canadian e-waste management has also been driven by Electronics Product Stewardship Canada. This is a producer-led organization formed in 2003 that plays an active role in helping provinces design and implement e-waste management programs, and it has developed a national electronics product stewardship strategy. All the major Canadian and multinational producers of electrical and electronic products are represented in this organization, including Hewlett-Packard, Sony, IBM, Dell, Apple, Canon and others. Many electronics manufacturers operating in Canada also have their own take-back or buy-back schemes, in addition to participating in collective product stewardship programs. Where ERP programs have been im-

plemented under Canadian provincial waste management legislation or regulations, it is mandatory for suppliers of designated products to develop and implement an approved e-waste management plan. Otherwise, they must contract a third-party organization to do so on their behalf. The minimum requirements for plans vary somewhat between provinces but generally include proposals for financing, recycling options, collection and processing, and education and awareness-raising. To date, the majority of Canada’s provinces and territories have implemented management plans. Most are phasing in various categories of electrical and electronic products over time. According to the eStewardship.ca website, only British Columbia and Manitoba have comprehensive regulations in place covering all the main e-waste product categories. With the exception of BC, which has two separate programs operated by different administrative bodies, all provinces with product stewardship programs have appointed a single organization to develop continued overleaf...

Electronic Wastes E-Waste Management in Canada E-waste is one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time. This Schroeder & Schroeder Inc. report provides comprehensive information about the issues and emerging business models for e-waste management, focusing on Canada. To purchase a copy, along with a complimentary companion PowerPoint presentation, please contact: harold@schroeder-inc.com and manage them. In Saskatchewan, Ontario, BC and Nova Scotia, the electronics stewardship programs are industry-led. In other provinces, such as Alberta and New Brunswick, programs are administered by non-profit organizations that report to the environment ministries. Financing models The ability of an EPR program to achieve its ultimate objective of improved product design is likely to depend largely on how the costs of e-waste

management are distributed. Systems that allocate producer contributions by market share or environmental design criteria are more likely to encourage more efficient life-cycle product management than those requiring producers to share the costs equally. In the latter case, there is little incentive to design products that have long life spans and are easy to recycle. In Canada, the basic e-waste management financing model in use is similar among the provinces, and is based on the principle of shared responsibility between consumers, producers and government. Some Canadian programs require producers to charge a standard “environmental handling fee” or “advanced recycling fee” at the point of purchase. This distributes the costs of collection and recycling of ewaste among those who benefit from the products. The effectiveness of this in influencing product design is questionable, since e-waste management costs are not incorporated into product prices. Moreover, such fees have been interpreted nega-

tively by the public and media as an environmental tax. Progress and opportunities The issue of e-waste management presents environmental and logistical challenges for Canada and its provinces and territories. Significant progress is being made in recycling technologies and in the development and implementation of e-waste management regulations and programs. There are good prospects for Canada to become a world leader in environmental best practices and e-waste management. However, there are still a number of areas for improvement, both in policy and practice. For example, where e-waste management plans and regulations are concerned, there is a pressing need for further harmonization between provinces to reduce the burden on producers to meet a range of different compliance requirements. Additionally, it is recommended that programs be designed to incorporate greater use of recycling and recovery goals and targets, as well as more effective incentives for improved product design. This may require a review of current financing models. Moreover, most provincial e-waste management programs have so far focused on establishing and enforcing arrangements for the recovery of management costs from producers and on raising awareness of collection arrangements and responsibilities among consumers and product distributors. Less evident have been efforts to increase management capacity and efficiency by promoting the business opportunities and encouraging commercial providers to enter the e-waste management marketplace. There are many opportunities for new entrants in a range of business areas, from design and engineering to construction, transportation and processing. As ewaste management capacity and process efficiencies are increased, it will become possible for provinces to incorporate a wider range of e-waste into their product stewardship programs and to significantly increase overall levels of recycling and recovery, with both environmental and economic benefits.

Environmental Management

Are you ready for ISO 14001? By Lynn Johannson


SO 14001 is the de facto standard for environmental management. Any organization, especially one operating in the environmental sector, should have adopted this standard, but so far only a very few have. ISO refers to the International Organization for Standardization; ISO is not an acronym, but is a shortened form of the Greek word “Isos”, which means equal. Here are ten reasons why you should be paying closer attention to what’s going on in the world of ISO 14001. 1. Human-designed systems are grossly inefficient. Experts hold that most business systems are 96% inefficient, which means that for every $100 of effort, there is $4 of actual value, and that is not good for the bottom line. An environmental management system (EMS) can help you ask the questions that will start to drive improvement in your productivity, by greening it. An EMS can also help your organization stay “fit for purpose,” maintaining its competitive edge. 2. One of the more valuable reasons for adopting an EMS, especially in small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), is that it can enhance the formality of your business. Increases in formality can drive productivity gains, which in turn increase profitability and prosperity. 3. An EMS can be used to manage changes, big and small, in the business process. The benefits include being able to prove to your management, your banker, your employees, whoever the stakeholders are in your business, that you have evidence of doing better. Sustainability guru Bob Willard has gathered data from businesses large and small on the “sustainability advantage,” and has found that going green can lead to cost savings and profit increases as high as 66% in SMEs. These are serious improvements (read more at www.sustainabilityadvantage.com). An EMS aligned to ISO 14001 can be used to manage this transformation. 4. Are you one of the 385,000 to 750,000 small business owners who wanted to retire between 2006 and 2016? Experts say it will remain a buyer’s mar36 | January 2012

ket until 2025. How will you be seen in the rising tide of SMEs wanting to sell and retire? The colour of success in a succession plan must include green. An EMS can be woven into that process to strengthen a seller’s position. 5. Whether your business is green will affect not only its attractiveness to potential buyers, but also its valuation. Over the past 20 years, environmental risk and liability issues have emerged to become one of the most value-destructive factors facing family-owned businesses, and are therefore major factors in the family business valuation. Don Schwerzler, an advisor on succession planning for family-based businesses in the United States, has shown that the adoption of ISO 14001 has helped stop the drain on valuation, and he has used it with good success to prepare a business for sale or transfer. 6. The legacy issue has other implications. Many SMEs are family-owned. Unless there has been a solid management approach for the environment, an intergenerational sale may carry with it

the harsh reality of heavy financial penalties and even jail sentences for the new owners: children or grandchildren. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business surveyed its members and found that only 10% had a formal succession plan in place. This is not a formula for success. Environmental lawyer Dianne Saxe has had to advise clients to close a business or let it die with the grandfather because of environmental liabilities. You can watch her interview on “In the Limelight” in the archives of GFTG TV. An EMS is not an overnight solution, but it can mesh well with a succession plan. 7. In 2008, the cost of global environmental externalities (factors whose benefits and costs are not reflected in the market price of goods and services) was nearly US $7 trillion, or 11% of the value of the global economy. Just 3,000 companies were the cause of approximately 35% of these externalities, according to a report by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. continued overleaf...

Environmental Management Financial stakeholders are going to be watching for evidence that these companies are taking control of this situation. ISO 14001 is a tool for fostering and ensuring co-operation and innovation among these corporate giants. Governments, especially those in distress, will be looking for ways to pass the responsibility and costs for these problems back to those that created them. It is far preferable for businesses to take control with an EMS than be subject to a whole new wave of regulations. 8. Some of these 3,000 businesses have ISO 14001 in place now. They are accustomed to an EMS based on ISO 14001 for their own internal management control, and are comfortable with the idea of using it as a supply chain request. When ISO 14001 made the first rounds in supply chains, the large companies that were early adopters pushed it onto their tier one suppliers. However, the other 65% of the market, including companies supplying the 3,000, is also adding to the problem. The request or requirement for evidence of better management will be passed on to medium and smaller businesses, includ-

ing those in the environment business. This is not just a big-business request; governments are increasingly asking for the presence of an EMS aligned to ISO 14001. 9. The companies that see this as an opportunity and leverage the positive outcomes of an EMS first will gain the high ground. Current estimates of ISO 14001 still suggest that less than 1% of employer businesses have adopted it, so there is room on the top of the iceberg, where you will be in plain sight. If you don’t get yourself above the waterline, large businesses can just as easily look elsewhere, whether south of the border or across the pond in either direction. China’s adoption of ISO 14001, when measured by the number of certificates, is growing rapidly, and is likely to lead the world. 10. As budgets grow tight, government-supported programs tend to fade away and the fallback position is on more regulatory-based measures. The European Union is only one of the economic regions under stress, but it will have ripple effects around the globe. Regulation is not typically written for

SMEs, and adds cost without solid evidence of environmental benefit. The ongoing outcomes of an EMS can position an SME ahead or above regulatory thresholds. As regulatory measures are far more expensive, taking control for environmental management in-house is a much smarter move. Urban myths and misconceptions There are some classic misconceptions and urban myths that have prevented the adoption of ISO 14001. Here are a few suggestions to overcome these. ISO 14001 is written by standards developers who, like any profession, use language to add mystery and excitement to their lives. If you actually read the standard and apply some common sense, you will find it is not rocket science. A quick tip: where it says “shall” within clause 4, this is a requirement based on a global consensus of expert opinion. Where it says “should,” this is not a requirement, but a suggestion and a good idea. Many small- and medium-sized businesses believe that they have to get certified to adopt ISO 14001. This is one of the great urban myths. The purpose of ISO 14001 is to enable users to integrate

Environmental Management a robust and credible management system into their core business to improve their relationship with the environment. The value is in design of the EMS. You can adopt the standard in part or in whole, but, if you only take a few elements into your management process, it would be unwise to market yourself as being aligned to or having ISO 14001. It is a systems approach, so you need it all to state that you conform. Demonstrating that you conform If you adopt ISO 14001 in whole, you have four options for demonstrating that you conform. Another tip: in Canada the trend is to conform to the standard and comply with law. These conformity assessment options are recognized in the standard in Clause 1, Scope, c) I) to 4). One option is not better than another; they are just different and serve a range of market needs. Option 1: You can self-declare. This is not an “ISO lite” approach — you still have to meet all the requirements. You can market your adoption; just make sure that you are clear on what to say and what not to say. ISO 14001 is a process standard; it cannot be used to support or


imply coverage of a product. Don’t use the ISO name in vain or abuse the trademark, or you will hear from them! Option 2: A second-party audit refers to a customer or other entity with a vested interest in you conducting the audit. They are not independent of your business, but can look at your system with fresh eyes and confirm that you have got what it takes to state that you have an EMS in place. The same holds true for ISO 9001: 2008. Option 3: An EnviroReady Report is provided by a specially trained professional accountant, who is independent of your business, so the report is considered a third-party activity, without assurance. The EnviroReady Report was developed with small business in mind, to offer a logical approach that is sensitive to smaller budgets for ISO 14001. See www.14000registry.com for details. This website also enables companies to post their adoption of ISO 14001, using any of the four options for free. Option 4: Certification or registration by an EMS auditor is another third-party process, which is intended to provide assurance. That is one of the reasons it is a

more expensive process. This approach tends to be used by large businesses and governments. ISO does not carry out certification to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 or any other of its standards, nor does it control the certification business sector or the EnviroReady Report process. ISO 14001 is to be revised. While Canada voted against this for many good reasons, including input received from Canadian stakeholders, the majority of other countries involved voted for revision. Changes will not be seen for three to five years, so it is not a good idea to wait until the new version is out.

Site Remediation

Evaluating site remediation technologies By Robert Tossell, Paresh Patel, Frank DiMaria and Francesco Gagliardi

40 | January 2012

Remediation Teechnology Evaluation Teechnology Evaluation and Selection Conceptual Model


ite remediation can be a timeconsuming and costly proposition for commercial and industrial sites. In many cases, an appropriate level of due diligence is not conducted prior to evaluating and selecting a remediation system. Often, a remediation system is selected and implemented with less than desired results due to challenges associated with existing site conditions or systems in place, infrastructure considerations, and time and cost constraints. Prior to implementing a remedial system, it is often prudent to step back, complete a thorough review of the site conditions and complete a remediation technology evaluation (RTE). An RTE is similar to a remediation feasibility study (FS) but is less costly, can be completed in less time and does not have the same lengthy evaluation and reporting requirements. The primary purpose of an RTE is to identify the major remediation options that are best suited to site conditions, that will protect human health and the environment, and that are technically effective, economically feasible and achievable using common construction techniques and equipment. Completing an RTE helps convey both technical (consultant and regulatory realm) and business (owner/operator realm) information that is beneficial to all parties involved, ultimately leading to better site management solutions. Feasibility studies and RTEs are commonplace in the United States, where federal and state governments have developed several guidance documents. They encourage site owners/managers to complete these detailed evaluations to better manage their contaminated properties. In Canada, completing an FS or RTE is much less common. Provincial regulatory agencies may not have specific guidance documents, and site owners/ managers and their consultants must rely on the U.S. guidance documents. However, an RTE (or FS) can be adapted to any regulatory environment. While the process does not change, the

RTE can be more concise and less timeconsuming than a full CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act) feasibility study. RTE framework and process Figure 1 presents a flow chart of the RTE process which is an adapted and simplified version of a number of FS guidance documents. Many of the requirements in the U.S. are different in Canada and, therefore, some of the CERCLA FS criteria do not apply in Canada. Primary RTE components include: • Development of site-specific reme-

diation or site management goals for regulatory, timeline and cost considerations. • Development of a conceptual site model (CSM). This is a three-dimensional representation of known site conditions (contaminant distribution, geology and hydrogeology and remediation constraints). • Development of a short list of remediation technologies that are applicable, given the CSM. • Screening or evaluation of the remediation technologies on the short list for their effectiveness (based on contaminant type, challenges with technology imple-

Site Remediation mentation, site constraints, and overall estimated costs to implement). • Development of conceptual site layouts or conceptual designs for the remaining technology options. • A detailed evaluation of the remaining technologies based on a set of criteria modified from the CERCLA FS approach. Detailed planning-level cost estimates are prepared so that remediation technology solutions can be evaluated based on overall life-cycle and net-present-value costs. • Selection of a clear front-runner technology solution that meets the sitespecific goals, based on the detailed evaluation. The final remediation solution can then be designed and implemented at the site and remediation performance can be monitored. In many cases, an RTE can be completed using existing environmental data collected during a Phase II environmental site assessment (ESA). However, for selection of the best technology and for more refined cost estimates, a sufficient level of site data (soil, groundwater, sediment and vapour) must be available. This

data is usually collected as part of a remedial investigation (RI). The RTE framework is very adaptable to the level of analysis required, given site management objectives. Consideration can be given to clients’ needs for short or long time frames, or priority can be given to cost considerations. RTE evaluation is initiated by focusing on a short list of applicable technologies that are effective (i.e., can meet site management objectives) for the various contaminants present, can be implemented given the site constraints, and provide the lowest potential life-cycle cost. A variety of technically feasible treatment technologies exist for remediation and management of contaminants that are present at a given site. However, each technology must be evaluated for site-specific conditions and other considerations to identify the optimal technology configuration. Technology options that are not effective (or less effective) in protecting human health and the environment, that cannot be implemented because of the physical characteristics of the site or con-

taminants, or that have a cost that is an order of magnitude greater than a similar technology, are excluded. While the FS analysis and documentation process can be very detailed and time-consuming, the RTE approach is somewhat more streamlined and still provides for a thorough evaluation of technologies. However, it does not necessarily have the lengthy reporting requirements of a full FS. Instead of using the full nine CERCLA criteria, five criteria can be used (by combining some or eliminating those that do not apply in Canada) in the detailed RTE analytical criteria, as listed below: 1. Overall protection of human health and the environment. Compliance with regulatory guidelines. 2. Short-term and long-term effectiveness and permanence (longevity). 3. Reduction of contaminant toxicity, mobility or volume through treatment (effectiveness). 4. Ability to implement or construct the technology (implementability). 5. Overall costs (life-cycle or net-present-value). continued overleaf...

Site Remediation All remediation technologies (or risk assessment/management options) have strengths and weaknesses. Technology screening is conducted to help focus the development of remediation technology evaluation and develop a short list of technology options/alternatives that have the greatest potential to meet treatment and overall site management objectives. Each technology option is evaluated individually against each criterion. Then different options developed for an affected medium are compared to determine specific strengths and weaknesses that must be balanced. This process is continued until technology options or technologies are identified that meet site management goals/objectives, or result in the selection of the lowest-cost remediation technology or technologies. As part of the RTE detailed analysis, planning-level cost estimates are generated for each technology option. Capital, operating and maintenance costs and net present value (NPV) for any long-term or annual remediation costs are estimated. Cost estimate methodologies should be based on sound engineering principles and should follow a standard costing

methodology such as those recommended by the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering (AACE). Planning-level cost estimates are usually sufficient for a RTE or FS using a Class D or 4 cost estimate with tolerances of +50%, –30%. NPV cost estimates are developed for all remediation options as part of the detailed evaluation process. Usually they include a breakdown of direct capital and indirect capital costs, operation, maintenance and performance monitoring costs. Following completion of the detailed evaluation, a RTE report is prepared that presents the RTE methodologies used, the site-specific CSM, screening-level analysis of technologies on the short list, a detailed analysis of remaining technologies, selection of the preferred remediation technology solution, and identification of any additional testing such as bench or pilot scale studies. Results and benefits The results of the FS/RTE will include: 1. Identification of potential remediation (in situ and off site) or risk management technologies that are used to treat

the contaminants in all media. 2. Presentation of a summary of common site conditions that will affect treatment technology effectiveness, implementation and cost. 3. Evaluation of these technologies based on an FS/RTE framework. 4. Identification of the conceptual design factors and conceptual designs needed to conduct the cost evaluation. 5. Preparation of a range of costs to implement each technology alternative. 6. Provision of the recommended (most promising, lowest life-cycle cost) technology options that meet most, if not all, site management objectives. Typically, the results of an RTE or a full FS will identify one to three clear remediation choices for the site owner/operator to consider. Through the RTE process, the technology effectiveness is evaluated, and uncertainty or risks associated with the remediation time frame, achievement of site management objectives and planning-level life-cycle costs can be minimized. In addition, the RTE benefits the consultant by ensuring appropriate due diligence has been conducted and that a thorough technology analysis is completed. Site owners/operators also benefit by acquiring a better understanding of the implications on infrastructure needs, effects of site operations, time of remediation, and life-cycle costs for remediation. The site owner/operator has the information to decide if spending a little more money up-front (which may lead to a faster resolution to the remediation) is more suited to site management or business goals. Ultimately, the RTE process and results provide for a systematic evaluation of site remediation needs, selection of a technology or a combination of technologies that meet site management goals, and development of remediation lifecycle cost estimates.

Energy Costs

Helping water utilities manage their energy budget


nergy usage and costs for many drinking water utilities are increasing due to many factors, including regulations, treatment technology complexity, aging infrastructure, supply challenges, and growth. While a number of utilities have begun to recognize the importance of containing and actually reducing energy consumption and costs, many may not yet fully understand the options available to them. A recent American Water Works Association Research Foundation study was organized and consolidated into major areas, including management tools, plant improvements and management changes, water treatment/distribution/conservation, alternative/renewable energy sources, financial assistance, and partnerships. Information was gathered from utilities of different sizes and geographic locations across North America. This project is part of a larger international ef-


fort to collect and share similar information on best practices in energy efficiency, spearheaded by the Global Water Research Coalition through UK Water Industry Research Limited. Results and conclusions Through an extensive literature search and 16 case studies, the authors of the report identified numerous energy efficiency best practices available to and currently in use at drinking water utilities in North America. Many of these practices do not require expensive or extensive capital investments. Simply optimizing a utility’s current equipment and operations practices can lead to significant reductions in energy consumption. Key findings include: • Some level or type of energy efficiency improvement can be made by utilities of all sizes and management structure. • Management support and operator and staff buy-in are critical for long-term success.

• Partnerships with energy providers may be particularly useful in identifying cost savings related to electric rate structures and time-of-use. • The primary area to target improvements is pumps and motors. • Benchmarking and conducting energy audits can help a utility define its current energy usage and establish a baseline to track changes over time. • Investment in adequate databases and monitoring and tracking systems is critical for managing energy usage, measuring success, and formulating new energy efficiency strategies. • Energy efficiency efforts should be tied to asset management plans and systems to ensure assets are properly maintained. • Water efficiency can lead to energy efficiency. • Funding is available to water utilities to implement energy efficiency options. continued overleaf...

Energy Costs • Utilities need to understand that efforts to increase energy efficiency are not without risks and tradeoffs that may impact water quality and public health protection. Applications and recommendations All drinking water utilities can and should take steps to reduce energy costs and consumption. Estimates indicate that between 10−30% savings are readily achievable by almost all utilities. These efforts can result in a number of benefits including cost savings that can be reinvested in infrastructure or other energy reduction measures; less strain on the current energy grid; meeting energy reduction targets; reduced greenhouse gas emissions; improved environmental stewardship; and improved customer relations. There are substantial opportunities and potential to reduce energy costs, some of which can be implemented easily, with limited investment. These savings can be realized through a range of actions including; • Utilizing new, energy-efficient technologies.

Energy Costs • Incorporating energy efficient practices into daily operations. • Taking advantage of incentives and rebates from energy providers. • Installing premium efficiency motors and variable speed drives. • Resizing pumping systems. • Developing alternative pumping schemes and pump system upgrades. • Installing controls and monitoring systems optimizing operations. • Implementing building upgrades (e.g., lighting and heating and cooling). • Benchmarking and energy audits. • Shifting power consumption from onpeak to off-peak hours. • Adding or more effectively using storage. • Promoting water conservation and use of energy efficient products. • Reducing system leaks. • Evaluating system life cycle energy costs associated with proposed projects. • Evaluating the use of alternative energy sources. This is not a case of one-size-fits-all. Each utility is unique and needs to evaluate its own goals, financial condition,


and commitment to improved energy efficiency. Regardless of where a utility is on the path to energy efficiency, it can always take additional steps. Economic implications Utilities have found that implementing energy efficiency practices has resulted in significant cost savings, up to hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Many of the improvements, such as optimizing current treatment, pumping, and operational practices, can be easily implemented with limited cost. Where capital investment is needed, payback periods can range from several months to several years. Longer payback periods (10 to 15 years) are often associated with renewable/alternative energy options. Funding for energy efficiency improvements may be available. Environmental implications Reducing energy consumption has a direct impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This can help utilities and municipalities meet aggressive carbon reduction goals. Investment in renewable/alternative energy can provide long-term “clean” energy.

Operational benefits Utilities have found that identifying approaches to integrate energy efficiency practices in daily management and longterm planning also contributes to longterm sustainability. It reduces operating costs and improves efficiency and process control. In many cases, measures taken to improve water efficiency also translate into energy savings, as less water is required to be produced and pumped. This can also result in monetary savings on chemicals and other treatment supplies, and extend the life of treatment units and components. Customer relations Taking steps to reduce energy consumption can enhance customer relations by demonstrating environmental stewardship and sustainability. Providing or supporting programs to improve energy and water efficiency at customers’ homes can further demonstrate a utility’s commitment to helping the environment and helping customers save money.

Flowmeter helps quarry meet its de-watering permit requirements


he Ontario Water Resources Act requires flow monitoring for any quarry de-watering greater than 50,000 litres per day. In 2009, Louis W. Bray Construction installed an area-velocity flow meter at its quarry to meet Ministry of Environment permit regulations. Their permit stipulated effluent limits plus monitoring, sampling and flow measurement of wastewater discharged from the site to the South Raisin river. Quarries operating below the water table must de-water by pumping from the quarry pit. Some sites are able to reuse water in washing processes or spray operations but most discharge to a nearby waterway. Since a quarry operation involves only crushing, screening and mixing aggregates, chemical or biological water treatment is not required. Treatment before discharge normally just requires a series of settling ponds to drop suspended solids, and test wells for water quality assessment. Filtration after de-watering in the Bray Quarry uses a system of three settling ponds. Water is pumped from the quarry into the first settling pond and then flows by gravity through each pond in succession via connecting culverts. Final discharge flows through a 36" diameter culvert and finally to the South Raisin river. Consulting engineers at Genivar proposed an AVFM Area-Velocity Flow Meter from Greyline Instruments as a suitable technology to monitor and data log flow in the partially filled culvert. The ultrasonic flow meter sensor was installed at the bottom of the culvert, about 1 m from the open discharge, where it measures water level, velocity and temperature. Calibrated for a 36" diameter pipe, the instrument converts these readings to a flow rate. During pumping periods, water in the horizontal culvert rises to about a 300 mm level with a velocity of 0.3 m/sec. The flow meter reads, totalizes and data logs flow rates up to 70 l/sec during pump cycles. The instrument’s electronics are installed in an insulated shed 25 m from the 46 | January 2012

sensor location. Cable from the sensor to the electronics is watertight and runs underground in a PVC conduit. The AVFM includes a thermostatically controlled enclosure heater, flow rate display, totalizer, programmable control relays, three 420mA outputs and a data logger. Bray Quarry personnel periodically download log files from the AVFM to their laptop computer. Using Greyline Logger software they can generate oneclick flow reports, including daily total, minimum, average and maximum flow, with times of occurrence. The software

program exports to Microsoft Excel for these reports. Bray’s permit allows it to operate 244 days per year. They are required to submit flow reports twice annually to the Ministry of Environment. With the Greyline AVFM 5.0 Area-Velocity Flow Meter they are able to comply with environmental regulations and easily produce de-watering flow reports.

Drinking Water

New study examines formation of various methanes in drinking water


recent study by the AWWA Research Foundation examined the conditions and precursors involved in the formation of two emerging classes of disinfection by-products (DBPs). These are halonitromethanes (HNMs) and iodo-trihalomethanes (I-THMs). Since trihalomethanes were first discovered in drinking water in the early

48 | January 2012

1970s, DBP issues have become a major regulatory driving force. Available toxicological data indicates that regulated DBPs do not produce urinary bladder cancer consistently associated with chlorinated water. Additionally, it has been shown that their potencies are orders of magnitudes too low to account for cancer and reproductive or developmental effects. Water samples from five drinking water treatment plants and nine municipal wastewater treatment plants were collected and tested during the project. In addition, NOM (natural organic matter) fractions, isolated from selected drinking water sources, were utilized in some experiments. For HNMs, the approach was to evaluate different disinfection/oxidation processes for HNM formation potential, identify the general characteristics of HNM precursors, and investigate the influences of pH and elevated nitrite and bromide concentrations on HNM formation and speciation. For I-THMs, the approach was to determine the importance of pH, evaluate the effect of contact time and dose of prechlorination, determine the role of chloramination strategy, the role of natural organic matter, and examine the impact of preoxidation with potassium permanganate. Test results showed that ozonation/ chlorination significantly enhanced HNM formation, as compared to chlorine alone. Chloramination (using preformed monochloramine), alone or after ozonation, produced the fewest HNMs. HNM yields, both on a DOC (dissolved organic carbon) and DON (dissolved organic nitrogen) basis after conventional treatment were generally higher than the yields observed for the raw water of the same treatment plant. Precursors with higher reactivity toward HNM formation were not well removed during conventional treatment in the plants studied. Therefore, the hydrophilic NOM components remaining in water after conventional treatment contain more reactive precursors for HNM formation than hy-

drophobic compounds typically removed in conventional treatment. This was also indicated by the results of the NOM fraction experiments. The results also showed that DOC and DON removal alone will not be adequate descriptors to predict the reduction in HNM formation potential. Reasonable correlations were observed between HNM yields and the DOC/DON ratio of a sample. HNM yields decreased with increasing DOC/ DON ratio, which indicates that nitrogenous organic compounds play an important role in HNM formation. However, both the type and concentrations of organic precursors will be important for predicting HNM formation. HNMs in wastewater effluents Similar to drinking water treatment, the ranking of HNM formation potential (highest to lowest) in wastewater effluents was: 1. Ozonation-chlorination 2. Ozonation-chloramination 3. Chlorination 4. Chloramination. In addition, HNM formation was greatly reduced by applying preformed monochloramine (NH2Cl) rather than chlorine (Cl2), especially after pre-ozonation. Although a small number of WWTPs were studied in this project, if the influent flow characteristics are also included in the comparison, municipal nitrifying WWTPs exhibited the lowest HNM yields, as compared to other WWTPs for ozonationchlorination and chlorination. Conversely, the impact of biological processes and influent wastewater composition was negligible for HNM formation during chloramination and ozonationchloramination. Similar to the drinking waters, the best correlations were that lower DOC/DON ratios and higher DON concentrations resulted in higher HNM yields for ozonation/chlorination and chlorination of municipal nitrifying WWTP effluents. Comparison between DWTP and WWTP effluents Treated drinking waters eventually reach wastewater treatment plants after

Drinking Water household and industrial uses. Therefore, the HNMs of wastewater effluents in the studied area were compared with those of the drinking water. Results showed that HNM yields from ozonation followed by chlorination were higher in the wastewater effluents than in the treated drinking water. This indicated that there were HNM precursors in the treated wastewater effluents that were more reactive than the hydrophilic NOM components remaining in drinking water after treatment. This suggests that a significant amount of HNM precursors were either produced during biological treatment, or existed in the influent wastewater. This study examined the HNM precursors in the effluents of WWTPs before discharge. The fate and attenuation of HNM precursors in water bodies before reaching DWTPs have not been evaluated. Formation and speciation in DWTPs HNM formation was at appreciable levels for certain uniform formation conditions (UFC), (e.g., up to 25 Âľg/L for Br-(bromine)/DOC ratio of 100 Âľg /L and pH=8). The results indicated that the major precursors of THMs and HNMs

were not likely to be identical. The treated water of DWTPs exhibited significantly lower THM formation than raw water, while HNM concentrations formed in the raw and treated waters were comparable at ambient conditions. However, some similarities were noted regarding the formation of these two classes of DBPs. For both THMs and HNMs, formation increased with pH (6 to 8). Treated waters had higher amounts of brominated THM and HNM species, as compared to the raw waters, due to the removal of DOC, but not bromide, during conventional treatment. Overall, trihalogenated HNMs (THNMs) were the major HNM species formed. Dihalogenated HNM (DHNM) peaks were also detected, but were almost always below the minimum reporting levels of the measurements. Tests at elevated Br- levels showed that HNM formation increased and more brominated HNM species were observed. THNMs were still the major HNM species formed. Bromine was usually incorporated more readily into HNMs than THMs. Additionally, higher brominated HNM formation in the treated water was

attributed to the higher reactivity of hydrophilic NOM components for bromine incorporation. Experiments with ozone alone (without post chlorination) did not produce brominated HNMs in waters with elevated bromide. The presence of nitrite (2 mg/L NO2) increased HNM formation during chlorination and ozonation-chlorination. Although this level of nitrite would not normally be found in drinking waters and was spiked in order to see an effect, it seems that NO2 can serve as a precursor to form HNMs from chlorination without preozonation. It was determined that HNM formation was higher in the raw water supplemented with NO2 than in the treated water. It appears that there are some hydrophobic NOM components in the raw water that are removed during conventional treatment that can form HNMs in the presence of NO2 during chlorination. For ozonation followed by chloramination, HNM formation was minimal (< 1 Âľg/L), even in the presence of bromide and nitrite. continued overleaf...

ratio of approximately 10. However, when the concentrations of Br- and Iwere elevated (e.g., 800 and 80 Âľg/L), there was significant I-THM formation at higher pH due to iodoform formation. The formation of iodoform was rarely observed at lower and more typical Br- and I- levels. The most important species were dichloroiodomethane (DCIM) and bromochloroiodomethane (BCIM). I-/DOC ratio was an important contributor to increases in iodine incorporation and iodoform formation. In addition, the results suggested that there is a NOM effect for iodoform formation. A higher I-/DOC ratio was necessary in a high-SUVA (Specific UV Absorbance) water than a low-SUVA water for significant I-THM formation to occur. I-THM yields did not depend on the NH2Cl/I- ratio, as increasing NH2Cl concentrations from the UFC dose of approximately 2.4 mg/L to 5.0 mg/L (as Cl2) did not have an appreciable effect on I-THM yields. Prechlorination vs preformed NH2C1 Prechlorination (HOCl contact time) prior to ammonia addition did not always result in lower ITHM concentrations as compared to preformed monochloramine. Prechlorination sometimes increased I-THM formation, as compared to preformed monochloramine under some circumstances. For prechlorination, the Cl2/DOC ratio and/or the Cl2/I- ratio were critical to control both the extent of THM and I-THM formation, as well as

the ratio of THM to I-THM in a water sample. However, the critical Cl2/DOC ratio to control both the concentrations of THM and I-THM in a water sample appears to be water specific. Iodine incorporation dominated over bromine incorporation for preformed NH2Cl, while the reverse trend was observed for prechlorination followed by ammonia addition. Low-SUVA254 water was more reactive in incorporating I- during preformed chloramination. For high-SUVA254 water, it was necessary to exceed an I-/DOC threshold before iodine incorporation into I-THMs became significant. For preformed NH2Cl, when the Br/I- level was increased to 800/80, I-THM speciation shifted towards iodoform formation. However, for more typical Br-/Ilevels, the dominant I-THM species were DCIM and BCIM. For prechlorination, increasing contact time from 5 to 20 minutes generally resulted in a shift towards more brominated I-THM and THMs. This was attributed to the faster formation of brominated than chlorinated species and reduction in iodinated species. For I-THMs, BCIM and dibromoiodomethane (DBIM) were the dominant ITHM species, while bromodiiodomethane (BDIM) was mainly detected with shorter contact times or lower chlorine doses. With increasing Br- and I- concentrations, DBIM became the dominant I-THM species, while bromoform became the dominant

The formation of iodoform was almost completely suppressed during prechlorination.This indicates that one consequence of the addition of Cl2 prior to NH3 addition will be to almost completely eliminate iodoform formation in practice. Alternative oxidants Fortunately, the preoxidants, potassium permanganate (KMnO4), chlorine dioxide (ClO2), or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), tested as alternatives to prechorination did not form high concentrations of regulated THMs like chlorine. However, neither did they provide a viable alternative to prechlorination for minimizing I-THM formation. In some cases, small increases in I-THM formation were observed for preoxidation. This was attributed to reactions of alternative oxidants with Br-, I-, and NOM.

disinfection credit and/or to inactivate bacteria that slough off of a biofilter. Therefore, the optimization of chloramination practices should consider consistency and compliance with a wide range of operational and regulatory requirements, as well as reducing HNM formation. Limited results in the literature suggest that one possible approach to removing HNM precursors is to use biofiltration after ozonation. Considering the difficulty

of solving several treatment challenges and goals in a single process, biofiltration offers a number of other benefits. These include removal of assimilable or biodegradable organic carbon, removal of taste and odor causing compounds (geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB), removal of selected biodegradable trace pharmaceutical compounds/endocrine disruptors, and a reduction in the probability of biological growth. continued overleaf...


Limited results in the literature suggest that one possible approach to removing HNM precursors is to use biofiltration after ozonation. Applications and recommendations for HNMs HNM formation is likely to be higher at ozonation plants. These utilities should consider monitoring HNM concentrations in their systems. Measuring all nine HNM species is important to assess overall HNM formation and speciation in water. Like THMs, the formation of HNMs will increase with increasing pH and bromide level. Chloramination alone, or after ozonation, will reduce HNMs in addition to reducing regulated THMs and HAAs. However, it is important to note that chloramination results were obtained with preformed monochloramine in this study. At full scale operations, preformed chloramines are not used. Instead, chlorine and ammonia are added in separate streams to form monochloramine. Proper mixing conditions of chlorine and ammonia are critical in monochloramine formation.

such as KMnO4, ClO2, or H2O2, do not generate as high a level of THMs as chlorine, they will not be a viable alternative to prechlorination for minimizing iodinated THM formation. In some cases, they may even increase I-THM formation. HNMs, I-THMs and other DBPs Overall, the results obtained in this study show that ozonation followed by chloramination, or chloramination alone,

Although the use of different oxidants has been linked to various DBP problems, they also result in large reductions in total organic halogen. and NH3 at the same point in plants with good mixing conditions is expected to form minimal levels of I-THMs. Adding HOCl earlier in the plant before NH3 prechlorination will decrease I-THM formation in most cases when iodide concentrations are higher (e.g., >80 µg /L). Even though alternative preoxidants,

may be a reasonable treatment to control the formation of HNMs, I-THMs, and THMs simultaneously. Because chloramines are a weaker disinfectant/oxidant, DWTPs usually need a pre-oxidant/disinfectant. The use of certain pre-oxidants in an optimized way may help utilities to control and minimize formation of both

regulated and unregulated DBPs. Although nitrification may be observed in some distribution systems as a result of chloramination, many systems have managed to control this problem. While switching to chloramines has been linked to lead problems in some systems, there are many more that have had no lead issues. Although the use of different oxidants has been linked to various DBP problems, they also result in large reductions in total organic halogen (TOX) or, under most conditions, significantly lower amounts of HNMs or iodine-containing DBPs. Some of these DBPs are an order of magnitude or higher in toxicity, but they are also an order of magnitude or lower in concentration. Nonetheless, it is still an important goal to try to find costeffective means of minimizing both regulated and emerging DBPs of health concern. For more information, visit: www.waterrf.org

Air/gas mass flowmeter improves WWTP efficiency By Stephen Cox


fast growing city recently addressed the need to expand its municipal service for new residents and subdivisions. In recent years, the city’s residential demand for wastewater treatment tripled to more than 1.5 million gallons per day. In planning for the wastewater treatment plant’s expanded capabilities, minimizing energy costs for aeration basin compressed air was a goal of the city’s water engineers. In wastewater treatment plants, controlling the proper amount of air that is released into the aeration basins is essential since this controls the growth of micro-organisms that treat the wastewater. Flow meters are typically installed in the aeration system piping to measure the amount of air flow, with their analog or digital output connected to the facility’s control system.

In most plants, each of several aeration basins is configured with numerous diffuser systems, and individual air flow monitoring with independent control is generally required for each diffuser system. The compressor system must run at all times to maintain the optimum amount of air to the diffuser systems and the aeration basins. Flow rates must change throughout the day, based on demand. Air/gas flowmeters Engineers at the plant needed to place air flow meters in a rugged area of the facility with an underground vault, which required remote access. The installation site was further challenged with straight pipe run limitations, the presence of hazardous gases, a wet and dirty environment, and with fluctuating wastewater levels. The flow meters needed to be installed in the 24-inch line used for blower air flow

into the aeration basins. Accurate measurement of the air flow was necessary for the control system to maintain the correct level of dissolved oxygen in the aeration basins and proper wastewater treatment. The meters also needed to provide accuracy over a wide flow range, because the facility requires flow rates to increase from 0.5 to 3.0 MGD with future growth. After reviewing various flow meter technologies, the plant engineers selected the ST98 Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI).This flow meter is designed with a thermal dispersion mass flow sensing element that provides measurement accuracy and reliability in harsh environments. To compensate for flow disturbances resulting from limited piping upstream, Vortab Flow Conditioners (Model VIP) were installed to ensure flow meter accuracy. They remove both continued overleaf...

flow meter data, including diagnostics, calibration and configuration information. City engineers also installed a Vortab VIP Flow Conditioner to provide repeatable and symmetrical velocity flow profiles at the metering location to reduce straight pipe run requirements. It was installed three pipe diameters downstream from the flow disturbance to provide symmetrical and swirl-free repeatable laminar flow. This ensures the flow meter meets the city’s accuracy and repeatability specifications. Conclusion Optimizing the aeration process by measuring and controlling the aeration system’s air flow with an accurate, reliable flow meter reduces energy costs and overall plant operational costs. In addition, the flow conditioner can reduce piping costs and the low pressure drop characteristics minimize compressor/pump power requirements. Outfitting wastewater treatment aeration systems with a mass flow meter will result in improved process effectiveness and reduced energy consumption. Looking carefully at measuring accuracy and range needs, installation conditions and maintenance requirements will assist in selecting the most cost-effective flow metering solution.

Wastewater Treatment

Creating a scalable wastewater solution for a PEI tourist town


hen the picturesque, rural fishing village of Victoria, Prince Edward Island, needed to replace its antiquated, failing septic systems, community officials looked for a cost-effective solution suited to the unique requirements of their location. In order to plan for new development, the treatment system had to be scalable to accommodate the highly variable daily flows that are customary for a popular summer vacation destination. After careful consideration, Victoria’s decision-makers chose an Orenco Effluent Sewer and AdvanTex® AX100 Treatment System because of its effectiveness and low operating and lifetime costs. The system is scalable, and capable of treating flows of up to 95,000 litres per day (lpd) during the tourist season, with peaks of over 180,000 lpd.

Historic period buildings and landmarks such as the Victoria Lighthouse draw tourists and stimulate the local economy.

Chemline Plastics

Victoria’s historic architecture and its seaside location draw thousands of visitors each year, but development of the community had stalled because septic systems used by many buildings failed repeatedly, requiring expensive but often merely temporary repairs. The systems were also labour-intensive, as they needed frequent pumping to accommodate higher daily use during the tourist season. Provincial regulators would not approve new development or expansion in Victoria until a solution was found. When community officials were searching for a cost-effective, sustainable wastewater system, they had several specific constraints to consider. First, because the residential lots in the village centre had been laid out in the 1800s and were not large enough to accommodate traditional onsite wastewater continued overleaf...

Installation of the system, which consists of both septic tank effluent gravity (STEG) and septic tank effluent pumping (STEP) equipment, was completed in 2008.

systems, a compact solution was required. Second, because treated effluent might negatively affect the nearby harbour and estuary, direct discharge to the bay was not a popular option for many residents and those who depended on Victoria’s coastal waters for their livelihood. Third, because Prince Edward Island relies on groundwater for its drinking water, the system needed to be based on an integrated, sustainable, watershed-based approach. Engineering Technologies Canada (ETC) was retained in 2003 to identify and evaluate various options and recommend a wastewater management solution best suited to the community’s needs. After a detailed life-cycle analysis of both conventional and alternative systems, ETC recommended the AdvanTex system. Installation of the system, which services 57 residential locations and six commercial sites, and consists of both septic tank effluent gravity (STEG) and septic tank effluent pumping (STEP) equipment, was completed in 2008. How the system works Following primary treatment in collection tanks at each site, the effluent is pumped to the treatment system, which uses a packed-bed textile filter, with low power requirements and low operating and maintenance costs. Because effluent is dosed at a specific rate to 10 AdvanTex AX100 pods, the system can accommodate widely varying daily flows. After 56 | January 2012

treatment, effluent is diffused to two landbased dispersal systems. The pressuredose sand dispersal bed (mantle) operates year-round, while a subsurface drip irrigation system comes on line during the busy summer season to provide the total required effluent dispersal capacity. Another key part of the integrated approach was a water efficiency program. Regular toilets were replaced with lowflow models (six litres/flush or less) and water meters were installed at each con-

nection. In addition to reducing potable water demands, this helped to reduce the amount of effluent needing treatment and allowed ETC to reserve more land at the wastewater treatment site for future expansion. The system’s scalability is an important factor for development in the community. While all AdvanTex pods are used for peak summer flows, in the slower winter season the system uses only three pods and two pumps, conserving energy and extending equipment life. Pods can be added to allow for further development in the area. Another critical factor for Victoria is that only a part-time operator is needed, because of the system’s robustness and reliability. “Operation and maintenance associated with traditional, ‘big city’ sewage treatment solutions can be onerous and time-consuming, requiring advanced, high-level operators,” said Kelly Galloway, project engineer. “If these technologies are misapplied they can be a huge burden on small rural communities, often making up the biggest portion of their utility costs.” The operator monitors the system remotely and is notified if any maintenance is needed, via an Orenco TCOM™ virtual telemetry panel. Levels of BOD and TSS are at least 60% less than antici-

pated, and the system also exceeds the desired treatment requirement for total nitrogen. More than 2,500 AX100 filters have been installed worldwide. However, this was the first municipal-scale STEG/STEP effluent sewer collection system in PEI.,

and the first major municipal scale, synthetic packed-bed filter treatment system in Atlantic Canada. “The new system has been a stimulus for expansion in our tourism businesses and has allowed our residential population to dramatically increase,” said Hilary

Price, administrator for the Community of Victoria. “Prior to the installation of this central sewage system, the community periodically experienced bad odours from failing septics. The new central sewage system rectified this problem and removed the serious public health hazard caused by failing septic systems.” For the system’s design, project engineer Kelly Galloway won the 2009 Engineers PEI Award for Engineering Achievement. The Community of Victoria was honoured with the 2010 Municipal Achievement Award from the Federation of PEI Municipalities and the 2011 Sustainable Community Award from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. On October 18, 2011, Orenco was given the Water Environment Federation’s Innovative Technology Award for the nutrient-removal configuration of its AdvanTex Treatment Systems.

Composting plant boosts performance after facility retrofit and custom equipment replacement By Brian King and Lissa Ham


n 2009, a 50,000-wet tonne output per year organic waste composting plant was constructed in Moose Creek, Ontario, by Lafleche Environmental, Inc. (LEI) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Montreal-based TransForce, Inc. The plant, which is located 45 minutes from downtown Ottawa, is part of a 500-acre LEI development that also includes a bioreactor landfill, collection and tertiary treatment of leachate, landfill gas collection and a 4-Mw power generation facility. As part of LEI’s vision of reusing a vast majority of otherwise wasted materials, the compost plant helps bring the company a critical step closer towards its waste diversion goals. LEI also recognized the need for the plant to meet increased demand for diversion of organics from the municipal solid waste stream. This was due to increased environmental awareness, a provincial mandate to increase diversion from landfill, and the lack of facilities in Ontario. The majority of materials delivered to the facility originate in central and eastern Ontario. The plant was uniquely constructed with one building inside another, atop a concrete slab. It is 156 metres long by 30 metres wide, and divided into three components: a receiving and channel loading area; six 110 metre long aerated concrete composting channels (bays); and a discharge area. The exterior building is a canvas-covered steel framework building that houses another internal fabric structure over the area where the active composting process occurs. The entire process is a multi-staged mix of biology, technology and mechanics, with each step being critical in the production of a high-quality end product. First, trucks deliver source-separated organics (SSO), consisting of various biodegradable feedstocks, including food scraps, food processing residues, paper, boxboard and cardboard, leaf and yard waste, and other organic materials. Bulking agents, including corn derivatives, straw, hay, chipped wood, and peat ‘overs’ 58 | January 2012

are delivered separately and stored on site until needed. The SSO are deposited on the tipping floor in an enclosed receiving area that is designed for mixed waste preparation and feedstock mixing. After the material is visually inspected for oversized objects and obvious contaminants, a front-end loader places various proportions of each type of waste into a mixer which blends the material to achieve an appropriate C:N ratio and moisture content. The mixer discharges blended material via a conveyor to a primary screener that removes oversized constituents and some of the plastics in the raw SSO. Blended feedstock and bulking agents are transferred by a loader to the beginning of each composting bay. The automated agitator, travelling down the channels by a rail system on the walls, mixes the material to achieve a homogeneous blend throughout, as well as moving it from the front end to the discharge end of the bays (the active composting area) over a period of 25-30 days. While travelling through the bay, material is aerated via a system of in-floor piping. Temperatures are monitored and

controlled by a computerized monitoring and control system that activates the air blowers in response to temperature set points. Routine agitation, together with controlled aeration, provides an optimum environment to enhance the biological process. Immature composted material is then transferred via loader to an enclosed screening building, situated adjacent to the compost facility. It is screened again to remove the vast majority of plastics and the coarser fraction of the wood chips. This mitigates the seasonal elements (wind, rain and snow), wind-blown litter, and the potential for odour complaints. Screened immature compost is transported to an on-site curing yard, where it matures for an additional 20 to 60 days. Finally, the compost is sampled for analysis and bulk-distributed as an agricultural soil amendment to farmers, a soil additive for landscapers, and provided to the public. Over the years, farmers and other bulk users such as municipalities, landscapers, nursery-owners, golf courses, etc., have

Economics and the Environment

Is the Green Economy the next evolution of environmental employment?


n a list of the most popular topics to appear recently in the media, the green economy would easily rank near the top. As a promising fusion of both environmental considerations and economic needs, it has garnered impressive praise, critique and debate. Yet, for all the attention directed to the green economy, little has been established as to what exactly the term refers to or encompasses. Definitions of green economic activity have varied widely, from descriptions with a predominately economic focus, to those that factor in much broader considerations of social equity and sustainability. This lack of a consistent definition has far-reaching implications. Without a clear definition of the green economy, it is difficult to estimate how many industries are currently involved in green activities, or to determine the ways that green growth affects employment. For environmental employers and professionals in particular, such insights are especially vital, since information on the development of the green economy relates to emerging areas, employment prospects and changing skill demands. Thus, a consistent and shared understanding of the opportunities and advantages of the green economy is essential for long-term environmental industry growth and workforce development. But how can this be achieved? In 2010, the Environmental Careers Organization (ECO) Canada, initiated a multi-phase research project to define the green economy, estimate its size, and determine its potential influence on employment. In comparison to major international projects on the topic, such as UNEP’s Green Economy Initiative and the OECD’s Green Growth Strategy, ECO Canada’s research involves a unique national analysis of the green economy as it relates specifically to industries and occupations in Canada. Following the recent publication of the first study phase, entitled Defining the Green Economy, a number of in60 | January 2012

With the spread of sustainable practices across all industries, even workers outside of the traditional environmental sector are increasingly required to update their skills, utilize new technologies, and meet the requirements of emerging regulations.

triguing points have emerged on how the Canadian green economy should be defined, what its potential impact is on employment, and where further research is still needed. Through a review of available literature and discussions with key industry experts, ECO Canada’s report arrived at a definition of the green economy as: “The aggregate of all activity operating with the primary intention of reducing conventional levels of resource consumption and harmful emissions, and minimizing environmental impact. The green economy includes the inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes as they relate to the production of green products and services.” In a similar vein, a green job was characterized as: “One that works directly with information, technologies, or materials that minimize environmental impact, and also requires specialized

skills, knowledge, training, or experience related to these areas.” In addition to developing these definitions, the report also surveyed over 400 companies, currently operating in the Canadian green economy, to determine the characteristics, activities, and growth expectations of green businesses in Canada. Based on the input from these companies, the bulk of respondents (43%) were engaged in industries related to professional, scientific and technical services. Waste management and remediation was a distant second, with only 11% of green companies self-identifying in this category. Within these industries, green enterprises most frequently performed services related to consulting, education, or research, environmental consulting or training, engineering or related consulting, and recycling or re-manufacturing. Another important characteristic of these organizations was their small size. Half of the businesses in the survey employed five full-time employees or less, while only 7% operated with over a hundred full-time staff. The relatively small current size of green businesses could change significantly in the near future. Over two-thirds (64%) of the companies surveyed expected to hire additional full-time employees in the next five years, with 49% of these respondents planning to hire between one to 10 net full-time staff. Along with this overview of the traits of green companies, the Defining the Green Economy report also developed a preliminary sketch of how the green economy affects employment, skills requirements and emerging areas of opportunity in Canada. For the most part, the primary impact on Canadian employment is through the adaptation and reallocation of existing occupations. Its growth has meant that sustainable practices are spreading throughout all industries, including those outside of the traditionally-defined environmental sector. As noted in the report, “sustainability

Building retrofitting and construction is one emerging area that shows strong growth potential, according to ECO Canada’s Defining the Green Economy report.

is becoming an overarching way of working, regardless of industry.” Consequently, many workers in existing occupations have needed to update their skills, utilize new technologies, and meet the requirements of emerging regulations.

Environment-related activities have become so integral to typical work requirements that ECO Canada estimates there are currently over 2 million Canadian employees who spend some portion of their time on environmental tasks. The remarkable prevalence of envi-

ronmental work means that programs that help professionals measure their competencies against verified standards and stay in touch with industry developments are particularly essential. In response to this need, EP (Environmental Professional) Certification and EP networking events were established to support the career growth and success of professionals working in environmental industries. To a much lesser extent, the green economy also has an impact on the Canadian workforce through the creation of new jobs. As businesses work to meet anticipated environmental regulations and consumer demands, and as new markets emerge in such areas as low carbon technology and renewable energy, green growth has led to the emergence of distinctly-new occupations. With sectors, industries and businesses taking part in the green economy’s large-scale shift to greater sustainability, specific skills are already in notable demand. Industry insiders continued overleaf...

highlighted three main skill needs for workers in the green economy. The first was the ability to adapt to technological change. One of the hallmarks of green growth has involved the rapid introduction of new and often ad-

to a number of sources, there is a noticeable lack of knowledge about sustainability across business processes, practices, policies and regulations. More knowledge is especially critical in areas related to carbon trading and environmental finance, where limited training is currently available. Finally, the growth of the green economy has increased the demand for interdisciplinary thinkers who are capable of understanding how green issues intersect across different departments. This reflects a larger business transition to systems integration. This means employees often need to facilitate cooperation between different industries and demonstrate an awareness of the connections between everything from engineering to trades and policy. These various skill requirements reflect the more technical and interdisciplinary nature of several of the green economy’s main areas of opportunity. Based on the Defining the Green Economy report, significant growth is anticipated for industries in renewable energy and energy efficiency, buildings, retro-fitting and construction; transportation and alternative transportation, and waste recycling and waste management. Ultimately, all of these insights from the study represent intriguing first steps towards a better understanding of the green economy in Canada. Further research is still needed to refine the underlying conditions of a definition for the green economy, as well as establish an accurate measurement of green economic activity. Several of these objectives have formed the basis for ECO Canada’s second project, Developing Canada’s Green Economy. In this current study in progress, a model will be constructed in order to classify green economic activity according to a series of rule-based measures or conditions. This definitional model will then be applied to green industries and companies to develop a preliminary scope of the kinds of products, services and activities that the green economy encompasses. Later on, information from the second study will provide a much-needed foundation for common language and logic to characterize the green economy, and pave the way for future research into the size and characteristics of Canadian green economic activity. Additional examination of the industries and occupations that contribute to the green economy will assist in identifying “hot” green jobs, the skills and training needs for emerging green occupations, and the general workforce strategies required to support green growth. This future research will also provide workforce development tools that specifically support the integration of newcomers to Canada and transitioning professionals into environmental occupations. As the green economy continues to undergo remarkable development, insights and strategies produced through this research will be crucial. Green growth represents valuable economic and employment opportunities that Canadian industries and professionals cannot afford to miss. For more information, please visit: www.eco.ca

Water Supply

Meeting water reuse limits in cold climates By Ken Musyoka, Kevin Vieira and Merle Kroeker


he City of Dawson Creek, located in northeastern British Columbia, gets its water from the Kiskatinaw River, which is a tributary of the Peace River. This source is often plagued by high turbidity during the spring and low water levels in the summer. Recent growth in the oil and gas sector has led to increased pressure on the available potable water supply. The industry normally procures potable water from the City at filling stations, for use in deep well injection, road dust control and mud preparation. An alternative of tapping potable water from Pine or Peace River to supplement that obtained from Kiskatinaw River was considered. Due to the large distance between the rivers and the City’s reservoir, this option was considered to be too costly to be practical. To address the demand for potable water, the City decided to build a Recla-

SAGR (Submerged Attached Growth Reactor) near completion.

mation Water Treatment Plant (RWTP) to produce a minimum of 4000 m3/day of treated wastewater that meets the province’s standards. This approach would provide the required non-potable water to the oil and gas sector, with the

added benefit of reducing demand from the water supply. Other initiatives such as water conservation by-laws, adopting BC’s “Living Water Smart” approach to water management, etc., would ensure adequate water supply for the City and

satellite communities that also use its potable water supply. The City issued a request for a proposal from the private sector to raise capital for upgrading the existing wastewater treatment facility to meet unrestricted public access reclaimed water standards. In return, the successful proponent was offered a 10 year right to 85% (3400 m3/day) of the reclaimed effluent from the treatment plant. Possible uses for the reclaimed water are in oil and gas production, dust control, and/or sports field


watering. Shell provided the winning proposal and contributed a significant portion of the required total capital. Dawson Creek reserved the right to the remaining 15% (600 m3/day) of reclaimed water for possible use in watering parks and sports fields. Alternatively, the City could offer this portion of reclaimed water for use in industry for a nominal fee. The estimated 25% reduction in potable water demand would ensure the City has an ample supply of water to meet future demands.

The process had to meet BC Municipal Sewage Regulations (MSR) for reclaimed water under the “Unrestricted Public Access” category. As a result, it would also meet and exceed the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) requirements on a year round basis. (See Table 1) After discussions with the City’s designated consultant, it was decided to add a Nelson Environmental Inc. SAGR® (Submerged Attached Growth Reactor) process to provide post lagoon BOD5 and ammonia removal. It would also significantly reduce downstream demand on process equipment. Added benefits to upgrading the process would be a significant reduction in lagoon effluent TSS and pathogens. For final turbidity and TSS polishing following the SAGR®, cloth disk filters would be implemented followed by a chlorination unit for disinfection. Developing the SAGR process Lagoon-based treatment systems provide some ammonia removal (nitrification) capacity during the summer months. continued overleaf...

Water Supply

Table 1: Upgraded RWTP anticipated and required effluent.

However, many small communities in Canada and the northern United States are currently using lagoon systems for wastewater treatment, which often experience process water temperatures below 1 oC for extended periods during the winter. As a result, continuously discharging systems cannot meet low ammonia limits during the winter months. An alternative is to store lagoon effluent for intermittent discharge when water temperatures improve. This approach is made impossible for many communities due to large capital and land requirements. The SAGR process was developed to address these issues. The performance parameters and sizing of the process are based on extensive testing performed on post-lagoon demonstration systems located in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan and in Steinbach, Manitoba. Lloydminster was commissioned in 2008 and is currently in operation, while the Steinbach pilot was operated for three years between 2007 and 2010. Depending on effluent requirements, the system design can be adjusted to meet ammonia levels of <1.0 mg/L in summer months, and <2.0 mg/L in winter months, with influent water temperatures as low as 0.5oC. For the Dawson Creek RWTP, three SAGR beds (modules) were constructed to operate in parallel, following the existing aerated lagoon system.

SAGR Process BOD5 mg/L. TSS mg/L. TAN mg/L.

SAGR process system The SAGR process can be utilized for nitrification following any secondary treatment process, including aerated or facultative lagoons. It is a clean gravel bed, with a horizontal flow distribution chamber at the front end. This distributes the influent wastewater across the width of the entire bed. The gravel provides the necessary surface area for growth and attachment of a nitrifying biomass within the bed and is sized to optimize bacterial growth and hydraulic flow. A horizontal effluent collection chamber at the back end collects all the treated effluent and channels it to the discharge structure. Sizing of the bed is based on influent loading rates and temperature, as well as the required rate of nitrification. NEI LINEAR aeration was laid along the SAGR floor and provides continuous year-round aerobic conditions necessary for nitrification to take place within the bed. The aeration grid and bed layout are designed in such a way as to optimize biomass growth by balancing predation/decay with growth throughout the bed. This in turn minimizes long-term flow obstruction due to biomass overgrowth. Commissioning and performance Nelson Environmental staff provided operational training and commission on September 13, 2011, following successful completion of system construction. All MSR effluent objectives are met

prior to the disc filters with the exception of turbidity (no bacterial indicator data was provided). This trend is expected to continue and improve as the SAGR process matures to establish an optimal biomass film within the beds. (See Table 2) Conclusions Preliminary results indicate the upgraded facility is well on its way to meeting effluent quality objectives and solving the potable water availability concerns. There is a potential for capital cost recovery for the City of Dawson Creek, given the fact that demand for the reclaimed water by the local oil and gas industry is likely to remain high for the foreseeable future. The RWTP effluent quality far exceeds the recently published CCME effluent quality requirements. As a result, the City is ahead of the curve in meeting the 30 year grace period allocated by the federal government for wastewater treatment plant upgrades. Shell gains an alternative source for process/fracturing water that is cost effective and of high quality. It has access to 3400 m3/day of water over a 10 year period for their initial investment, amounting to significant long-term savings and capital recovery.

Acoustic-based pipe assessment technology reduces water leakage rates By Marc Bracken

The correlator interface indicates the effective wall thickness of the surveyed span of asbestos cement pipe as well as any existing leaks to engineers. Leaks are detected within 1”-3”ft of accuracy.


ccording to the US Environmental Protection Agency, some 700 water main breaks occur every day in the United States and Canada, amounting to approximately 250,000 breaks each year. Also, EPA estimates that, on average, 14 percent of treated water is lost to leaks. The District of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, provides drinking water to more than 68,000 residential and commercial customers through 380 kilometres of water mains. Located 26 miles east of Vancouver on the north bank of the Fraser River, the District was experiencing leaks and main breaks in sections of its water system, which is comprised mainly of ductile iron pipe. However, approximately 18% of its water system is comprised of asbestos cement and cast iron, and most of the leaks and breaks are experienced in these areas. Normally, Maple Ridge would analyze the break histories of parts of its water www.esemag.com

system to determine which sections needed to be prioritized for replacement. However, it began searching for a solution that would help support this approach by non-invasively measuring the effective wall thickness of selected water pipes as a means of better anticipating what sections were most vulnerable to future breaks.

Maple Ridge turned for help to Echologics LLC, a developer of advanced acoustic-based technologies for water loss management, leak detection, and pipe condition assessment. A subsidiary of Mueller Water Products, Inc., Echologics works with municipalities worldwide to isolate “silent” leaks that traditional leak detection and condition

Normally, Maple Ridge would analyze the break histories of parts of its water system to determine which sections needed to be prioritized for replacement. “Maple Ridge is a growing community with a fairly young infrastructure,” said Ed Mitchell, Maple Ridge’s Waterworks Superintendent. “Except for 42 miles of asbestos cement and cast-iron pipes with some ductile iron, we’re in good condition. Our main driver in investigation and replacement was trying to determine a pipe’s remaining useful life.”

assessment methodologies fail to find. Its proprietary sensor and signal conditioning technologies substantially reduce both electronic “white” noise as well as ambient background noise often created by running water, traffic or pumps. It works well on all pipes regardless of diameter, geometry, material, etc. Data collection is non-invasive, using January 2012 | 67

Water Systems standard pipe appurtenances such as hydrants, valves, or direct attachments to the pipe’s outer wall. The system also has the ability to assess the structural condition of transmission mains and distribution pipelines, including a unique solution for asbestos cement pipe. Mitchell wanted to gauge the accuracy of the company’s condition assessment capabilities. Therefore, the District had Echologics assess the condition of two sections of 6-in. asbestos cement pipe in its system, which it already knew was badly degraded. In order to conduct the acoustic-based surveys, engineers placed two hydrophones on valves and fire hydrants that were connected to selected sections of the system. Once the hydrophones were in place, a correlator listened for variations of acoustic signals that were introduced into the pipes by flowing water from hydrants, physically tapping on appurtenances such as valves, or by attaching vibro-mechanical shakers to the system. Changes in the acoustic signals enabled engineers to accurately measure wall thickness of the pipes, while simultaneously pinpointing leaks without breaking

ground or disrupting service. Once Echologics had surveyed both sections of pipe, Maple Ridge compared unearthed samples of the pipes to the condition assessment report provided.

The results were found to be nearly identical. The company’s findings accurately indicated that both pipes had remaining wall thicknesses of 7.7 mm, which meant that the pipes were significantly degraded. They had lost more than half (-54.2%) of their original wall thickness. The ability to accurately and non-invasively locate leaks and assess the wall thickness of pipes is a result of LeakfinderRT, a Windows-based leak detection and pipe condition assessment system. Its ability to accurately detect leaks on asbestos cement and metallic pipes is a result of an enhanced correlation function, which dramatically improves its ability to accurately identify and locate narrowband leak noise. This capability is ideal for plastic pipes, multiple leak situations, and scenarios where there is a large amount of background noise, or where leak sensors have to be closely spaced. Maple Ridge now uses results from Echologics’ leak detection and pipe condition assessments, along with its pipe breakage histories, to help prioritize repairs and replacement of its water system. A pattern of break reductions has been established for the District. In 2010, there were a total of six breakages in the system. In 2011, there were only two. Marc Bracken is with Echologics.

IPS Agitator with custom take-up reel.

To address this operational roadblock, LEI took steps to resolve the issue through additional operating time, but the associated maintenance required to keep the agitator running became cost prohibitive. LEI contacted Siemens for help in exploring alternatives for modifying the existing compost agitator operation in order to reach its design capacity. After considering several options, the two companies decided to replace LEI’s current agitator with a custom-built 100-hp IPS Compost Agitator, and install it within the existing infrastructure of the facility. The plan also involved a combination of minor structural and mechanical modifications to the facility to help meet its economic and operations goals. “Our options were to either drastically modify our plant structure to accommodate the new IPS system, or have Siemens modify its machine to fit our existing structure,” said Don MacDonell, LEI Operations Manager. “We worked out a solution where we modified our plant slightly, and Siemens modified its system slightly.” Part of these modifications included installing rails to the existing bay walls, before the new IPS was delivered and installed. The original agitator rode directly on the concrete walls and was unable to maintain proper traction throughout the

operating cycle, thereby reducing the amount of material the machine was able to mix and process. The addition of rails, a relatively easy fix that was done in conjunction with the other changes, effectively addressed this problem. Running at capacity with one IPS agitator Making modifications to the existing facility and some of the equipment, rather than replacing the entire composting system, allowed the team to complete the project on an aggressive schedule. The 100-hp IPS Agitator was ordered in June 2010, delivered in early January 2011 and was made operational within a few days. The new agitator was able to process all six bays in the original 10-hour workday. With only one agitator operating on a more reduced time frame than the original machine, overall operating and maintenance expenses have been significantly reduced and throughput greatly improved. Now that the system is truly running automatically, plant personnel are continuing their efforts to focus on improving overall facility logistics. Brian King, FEC, P.
