In Memoriam

ES&E remembers Ahron Nahmias

Editor and Publisher STEVE DAVEY Email: steve@esemag.com

C

anada’s water and wastewater industry lost another of its bright lights last year, with the untimely passing of Ahron Nahmias, founder of Metcon Sales and Engineering, at the age of 63, after a courageous battle with brain cancer. I had the honour of knowing Ahron since the beginning of my career in 1982, when he worked at Control and Metering Limited. By the time Tom Davey and I launched ES&E Magazine in 1988, Ahron had already launched Metcon and his company became among our first clients - a relationship that continues today. Until his semi-retirement in 2014, I enjoyed many a great talk with Ahron about life, business, family and personal development, during numerous WEAO or WEFTEC shows. His continuous friendly and positive attitude was infectious, as was his laughter upon hearing a humorous quip Whenever I visited Metcon to work with one of the ever growing staff, he would often invite me into his impressive office to chat, which was always uplifting. To me it seemed that Ahron strove to help people reach their potential and willingly shared his perspective on the world. Coming from such a tremendously successful business and family man, this was extremely valuable insight. His philosophy of giving back also extended to the industries Metcon serves, as Ahron encouraged his staff to volunteer their time on various association boards and committees. This philosophy continues today. Ahron started Metcon Sales and Engineering in 1985, to distribute chemical feed and disinfection equipment to the Ontario marketplace. His model for success is very well respected and emulated. “Don’t just sell the metering pump or the analyzer; rather, sell the complete system,” he said. Consequently, Metcon builds complete chemical feed and instrument systems.

Ahron always believed in selling quality equipment, backed up by quality service. Legend has it that shortly after starting the company he was performing repairs himself on a piece of equipment over a holiday weekend. The operator at the site asked him why he was doing this, and not his service technician. Ahron reportedly replied: “I can’t afford to hire a service technician.”  The customer advised him: “You can’t afford not to hire one.” This made Ahron realize that the only way to make his company sustainable and self-sufficient was to create a high quality service team. Clearly his formula worked, as Metcon now employs over 30 individuals. In addition to a highly successful career and business, Ahron also leaves behind a strong legacy in his family, who adored him. His three daughters, two son in laws, three granddaughters and his wife Fern will never forget the amazing, selfless and good hearted man he was.  As a man of great honour, Ahron was an inspiration to me in how to conduct one’s self, both personally and professionally. I will miss him a great deal. My deepest condolences to the Nahmias family.

Environment Canada required modifications to Montreal’s plan to release untreated wastewater

I

n October, the Federal Minister of the Environment mandated an independent scientific panel to review the City of Montreal’s planned release of eight billion litres of untreated wastewater into the St. Lawrence River. Montreal’s raw sewage discharge into the St. Lawrence began on November 11, but ended three days ahead of schedule due to faster than anticipated repairs. This meant that 4.9 billion litres were discharged, not the 8 billion originally estimated. This release was necessary for repairs to be made to the City’s southeast sewer interceptor, which consists of three tunnels, between 1.8 m and 5.4 m in diameter, located about 33 metres below ground. These collect effluent destined for the Jean-R. Marcotte wastewater treatment plant in Rivières des Prairies. A snow chute used to dump snow into the sewers was also part of the repair work. Following a thorough review of independent scientific experts’ findings, Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a final Order on November 9, 2015, requiring the City of Montreal to modify its plans and meet four main conditions: 1. The City had to carry out visual surveillance of the effluent plume to identify locations of accumulation. Floating booms or other measures had to be deployed where matter had resurfaced and accumulated. 2. A management plan had to be in place with respect to unanticipated deposits from large industrial, institutional or commercial facilities to the City’s sewers during the construction period. 3. The City has to provide Environment and Climate Change Canada with data and results of water quality, effluent quality, and monitoring of sediments and flora at the points of discharge of untreated effluent as well as selected locations downstream from the project plume. This will be carried out until June 2016. 4. A comprehensive review of the events leading to this incident must be

conducted. It will be led by the Department of the Environment and Climate Change, and will include those who may be affected by the release, including neighbouring First Nations communities and the province. An important objective of this review will be to ensure that proper engagement and consultations take place with respect to similar plans in the future. The review will reflect the objective that such a discharge does not reoccur in the future. The experts’ report showed that risks from the discharge would not be negligible. They could not quantify the risk, but stated that it would likely increase exponentially over time. Degradation of the infrastructure could limit the treatment capacity of the plant and also result in breakage, requiring emergency repairs. The report concluded that the best case scenario for a release of untreated wastewater was a planned one, where timing was controlled and mitigation measures could be planned and implemented. The worst case scenario was unplanned release due to infrastructure failure, which could result in a larger quantity of untreated wastewater being released, over a longer period of time. Specialized work crews and equipment needed to make the repairs would likely not be immediately available.

The timing of an unplanned release could also lead to greater risk to the fish reproductive cycle. It might also result in obstruction of the sewer, causing backflow into residential, commercial and industrial facilities. The experts indicated that an unplanned release would result in greater environmental impacts. They also recommended enhancements to environmental monitoring, which included biological monitoring of fish and bivalves. This would provide essential information for future evaluation of impacts related to discharges of untreated wastewater. Furthermore, they recommended that the monitoring be done over a longer period of time, at least until the indicators return to normal values. They also noted the importance of careful monitoring at drinking water treatment plants over the duration of the project, despite the low risk of impact. This sewage discharge generated criticism from environmentalists and lawmakers on both sides of the U.S– Canada border. “It’s unsettling to see Montreal have so little regard for the waterway, the wildlife that inhabits it and those that live along its shores,” said Patty Ritchie, a senator in the New York state legislature whose electoral district covers communities along 100 miles of the U.S.–Canadian border.

ES&E NEWS Shell Canada fined for discharging mercaptan

Ontario approves 22 source water protection plans

Road maintenance company fined for waste disposal violations

The Shell Sarnia Manufacturing Centre refinery in Corunna, Ontario is directly south of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation (AFN). It was recently fined $500,000 plus a victim fine surcharge of $125,000 for an odiforous discharge of mercaptan. It also had to pay an additional $200,000 in compensation to the AFN. On January 11, 2013, Shell personnel discovered a leak of liquid containing mercaptan. This flowed into an on-site ditch, which ultimately connects to the refinery’s wastewater treatment plant. The mercaptan’s foul odour affected numerous people in the AFN community, several of whom complained of sore eyes and throats, headaches, nausea and vomiting. The matter was referred to the ministry’s Investigations and Enforcement Branch, which resulted in one charge being laid. Following the incident Shell recommended to the City of Sarnia that a shelter-in-place advisory be issued for the refinery area, including the AFN community.

Ontario’s comprehensive approach to protect drinking water reached a milestone recently, when the province approved the 22nd and final source water protection plan, covering more than 450 municipal drinking water systems. Source water protection plans are locally developed, science-based plans, designed to protect the health of lakes, rivers and underground water sources that supply municipal drinking water systems. The plans set out actions to eliminate, manage or reduce potential risks to drinking water sources. Ontario is among the few jurisdictions in Canada to have source water protection plans in place. Local committees in 19 regions worked with the public, conservation authorities, First Nations, municipalities and the province to understand and come up with the most effective ways to protect water sources. Approving all 22 plans fulfilled Ontario’s public commitment to have the plans approved by the end of 2015.

Carillion Canada Inc. has been fined $80,000, for depositing waste in land that is not a ministry approved waste disposal site, contrary to the Environmental Protection Act (EPA). In 2012, the company entered into a contract with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to perform maintenance on provincial highways in the Huntsville area. The company also leased a yard in the same area to run their operation. In May 2014, an employee of Carillion discovered two 45-gallon drums of unknown material in the yard. He requested direction on what to do with the drums and was told to bury them at the back of the yard. In January 2015, the ministry received information from a complainant who alleged that employees from Carillion were instructed to bury drums containing an unknown substance. As a result, the ministry’s Investigations and Enforcement Branch initiated an investigation of the allegations. The buried drums were subsequently located and

Lake Simcoe showing signs of recovery The Ontario government has released a five year report that shows that the health of Lake Simcoe is improving. In 2009, it launched the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan, which it claims is the most comprehensive watershed-based legislated plan in Canada, to reduce phosphorus pollution, improve water quality and fish habitat. The report shows that long-term spring phosphorus concentrations, which cause blue-green algae, have improved, and that some native fish are showing signs of recovery. The Protection Plan also involves: • taking further action to deal with poor water quality caused by excessive phosphorus; • protecting and restoring shorelines and wetlands; • restoring the health of coldwater fish

and other aquatic life; • setting strict phosphorus limits on wastewater treatment plants; • controlling and preventing invasive species; • undertaking monitoring and analysis to understand the effects of climate change.

Waukesha wants to divert water from the Great Lakes Waukesha, Wisconsin is the first city located outside the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence River Basin wishing to benefit from an exception to the ban on water diversions, as outlined in the Great Lakes– St.  Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resources Agreement. The City’s water supply source is currently contaminated and it needs to find an alternative by 2018. The Great Lakes–St.  Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body will need to determine if the proposal complies with the exceptions that are set out in the Agreement. These exceptions are very tightly controlled. For example, water withdrawn must be intended for public

water supply purposes. It must be completely returned to the basin of origin in accordance with very strict water quality standards. The application must demonstrate that the withdrawal will not have an impact on the basin’s ecosystem. In addition, applications to divert water to a community outside the basin, but located in a county that straddles its limits, as is the case for Waukesha, must also undergo a regional review to qualify as an exception. www.waukeshadiversion.org

ES&E NEWS past 15 years, it has adopted ambitious targets and devised the means to achieve them, especially through the creation of the Green Fund. As a result, Quebec succeeded in reducing its GHG emissions by 8% below 1990 levels in 2012. The province has set an ambitious objective for 2020: reducing its GHG emissions by 20% below their 1990 levels. In order to achieve this, it has implemented a series of measures that include

the carbon market, which spearheads the government’s climate change action. All revenue from the carbon market is paid into the Green Fund to finance implementation of measures contained in the 2013-2020 Climate Change Action Plan. By 2020, 3.3 billion dollars will have been invested in Quebec to support companies, municipalities and citizens in their transition to a low-carbon world.

Always be first to the finish line

By adopting a 37.5% reduction target, Quebec is keeping the commitment it made alongside the 10 other partners of the Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers (NEG/ECP) to reach a regional GHG emissions reduction target of 35-45% below 1990 levels by 2030. The target also places Quebec on the GHG emissions reduction path recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for industrialized countries. This was adopted by the Under2MOU Global Climate Leadership Memorandum of Agreement that Quebec signed in July with other governments that have pledged to reduce their GHG emissions by 80-95% by 2050. www.letsdoitforthem.gouv.qc.ca.

Impacts of resource recovery on wastewater treatment processes The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) has funded significant research on recovery of resources from wastewater systems. It now seeks to understand how resource recovery practices impact wastewater treatment. WERF will fund research on whether water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) that operate for enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR), and/or phosphorus recovery, are experiencing difficulties dewatering anaerobically digested biosolids. WERF also will fund research to examine how phosphorus accumulation and recovery are impacted, when combined with a low-energy, low-carbon process (such as mainstream deammonification). The first project, Unintended ConEnvironmental Science & Engineering Magazine

source from that supplied by the City of Detroit, to the Flint River. This has proved to be a disastrous decision. Shortly after the switchover, residents began complaining about water’s color, taste and odour. Boil-water advisories were issued by the city, due to coliform bacteria detection in August and September 2014. That same year, General Motors stopped accepting treated Flint River water for its engine plant, over corrosion concerns due to the high chloride content. But it is public health that is the greatest concern. Virginia Tech re-

searchers compared Detroit water with Flint River water and found on average, that “Flint River water leaches 19 times more lead to the water from supply piping than Detroit water.” The city switched its water source back to Detroit in October 2015, but the damage had been done. The same month, pediatrician Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha found the number of Flint children with elevated blood-lead levels had jumped from 2.1% to 4% in the period following the switch to Flint River water. She told the Detroit Free Press that, in certain areas, the numbers were worse, going from 2.5% to 6.3%. On December 14, 2015, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver declared a state of emergency and requested federal assistance to deal with the “manmade disaster” from switching to the Flint River. Aid has poured into Flint as concerned citizens, politicians and even celebrities try to help. President Barack Obama pledged $80 million in infrastructure aid, largely aimed at repairing the damage done to Flint. www. flintwaterstudy.org

Infrastructure

Courageous conversations: Eco-fiscal challenges to building resilient communities By Ontario Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure

L

ast year, leaders from 20 organizations within the municipal and public works sectors in Ontario, met along with representatives from the province, to discuss some of the funding and fiscal challenges to building resilient communities. The second annual Infrastructure Forum was hosted by the Ontario Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (OCSI) and created an opportunity for delegates to share courageous conversations on the critical infrastructure challenges facing the province. Three invited speakers shared their ideas and insights related to the impact of climate change and urban infrastructure resilience. Glen Murray, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, spoke from the global perspective, citing the significant impact of increasing mean temperatures by 4°C on world food production. Locally, the province is mitigating its carbon footprint by planning for frequent electric transit service. Mel Cappe, representing Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission, recommended that all the costs of resource use be internalized. Government sets the framework, while market decisions determine allocation. An example of this is the cap-andtrade system. Gerry Lashley, from Intact Insurance, shared a first-hand perspective on the insurance cost of climate change as it related to flooding in Calgary, Toronto and Burlington. The World Bank is predicting a 10-fold increase in weather damage, largely due to climate change. The insurance industry can’t just increase premiums by 10-fold, as that is not affordable. “What can be achieved if we work together on mitigating the impacts of climate change?” Lashley asked. Those in attendance then broke into group discussions and responded to the specific questions raised by the speakers. By challenging the participants’ assumptions and encouraging them to dig deeper, valuable ideas were shared and new connections made on the various eco-fiscal challenges of climate change. Although communities should be adapt-

able and resilient to many different types of events, flooding from intense storms was uppermost in the minds of many. Building resilient communities The prevailing outcome from the speakers’ presentations and the OCSI group discussions was summarized in four ideas: 1. Identifying the economic benefit of climate change mitigation and adaptation - One of the ideas identified was the need for new models for governments and the public, to help recognize and incorporate the economic benefit of climate change mitigation and adaptation. There is a need to mandate evidence-based decision-making based on life cycle assessment. Education is also a key to help drive changes in behaviour for early adopters, followed by standards and regulations that would require everyone to participate. How do we raise awareness of the value of mitigation and adaptation efforts that reduce risk to the community and to the homeowner? Incentive programs are needed to reward homeowners who implement resilience changes. These could include reduced premiums on insurance, and rebates for downspout disconnection and back flow prevention.

2. Encouraging innovation by municipalities - During the forum discussions, it was appreciated that technical and technological innovation will certainly be part of the solution. However, the greatest need for innovation is in the way that municipalities go about their “business” in areas such as procurement, policy and implementation. Existing municipal procurement processes will need to be modified to facilitate these advancements (e.g., by focusing on long-term value rather than short-term cost). Best practices such as qualifications-based selection (QBS) of consulting engineers must be considered. Other levels of government and, in particular, regulators must remove any roadblocks and constraints to achieving innovation. 3. Supporting leadership by the province - In a recent survey by OCSI, 22% of municipalities indicated that they are doing “nothing” with respect to climate change. Forty-nine per cent are thinking about doing something and 18% are already committed due to a significant weather event in their community. To encourage municipalities to consider climate change in their asset management planning, the province should provide direction through legislation and other tools (e.g., memorandums of understanding, charter) that set minimum standards, promote innovation and are based on professional expertise. The province could also reward municipalities that are incorporating climate change in their asset management planning, with easier access to programs and funding. 4. Planning and funding for resiliency - The pricing of municipal services needs to reflect the full cost of climate change. The ability of a community to attract employers is connected to the reliability of services. The mitigating and adapting initiatives of the municipality increase reliability of services and promote community resiliency. Programs that assist property owners to be more sustainable would encourage public engagement and understanding of actual costs. For more information, visit www.on-csi.ca

Employment

Demand for technical and engineering jobs in B.C. needs to be filled from abroad By Leslie Emmons

I

n the next 10 years, British Columbia will face a considerable demand for engineers, scientists and technologists. Employers will need to change their recruitment methods to keep pace, according to a new study. Engineering, Geoscientists, Technologists and Technicians Labour Market Information has been published in a jointly funded initiative to provide supply and demand job information on 31 occupations in B.C. The report projects that more than 31,000 jobs will need to be filled by 2024 and nearly 11,500 new jobs will be created in the aforementioned 31 key occupations. Driving the demand is a combination of factors, according to Keith Sashaw, of the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies British Columbia (ACEC-BC). “We are seeing a lot of retirements in the engineering sector, as people are getting to that 60-65 age group,” he said. “A significant part of the demand is going to come for replacement workers. But we’re also very optimistic about B.C.’s economy and the outlook, in spite of what’s going in the resource sector. We think in the medium to long term the outlook is very positive for engineering in B.C., and that’s going to be driving a lot of demand as well.” John Leech, of Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia (ASTTBC), agrees that retirement is one of the factors contributing to the demand, as is the overall latent demand for technologists and technicians in B.C. The study forecasts that 10% of potential workers will come from out-of-province, or from other sectors. However, 40% of workers will need to come from other countries to meet the expected demand. Leech said that, while initiatives like promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education encourage local young people to pursue positions as technologists and technicians, there is still a strong need to attract numbers from outside of Canada.

16 | February 2016

“As I travel throughout the province, I find small and medium enterprises in particular facing a labour shortage to the point where they are turning down work,” Leech said. Along with the B.C. government, ASTTBC has put policies in place over the past five years to help internationally trained technology professionals better understand the B.C. job market. It has created a database that allows individuals anywhere in the world to do a self-assessment against the Canadian standards to see if they qualify as technicians and technologists. ASTTBC has also gone abroad to solidify supply channels for future workers. “We led a team from B.C., Manitoba and Ontario to the Philippines in 2012. Last year we took a team from Ontario and B.C. to India to get a better handle on their educational system. “We will head off in the new year to sign memorandums of recognition with a couple of Indian organizations. The purpose is to assure that, when an individual with those qualifications comes to B.C., they can be relatively sure of quick recognition of their credentials,” Leech said. As for meeting the projected goal of filling 31,000 positions by 2024, Sashaw said it’s all about economics. “If there’s a demand, there will be a

supply. As to how we achieve this, that’s going to be the real challenge. I think it’s a call to action to engineering companies and employees of engineers like B.C. Hydro and others that might hire engineers, as well as for the training institutions like ACEC-BC. We must start doing some planning and really addressing this issue.” In terms of the technologists and technicians industry, Leech said it comes down to three key points: “Number one - these are very well paid careers as technologists and technicians. Number two - they are recession proof. Thirdly - when you take a look at the future job market, young people with a diploma of technology as a technologist, are going to be well positioned in terms of not only initial job prospects, but long-term career opportunities.” The study was funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program. The British Columbia Ministry of Jobs, Tourism, and Skills Training provided additional support.

3D Modelling

With an easy-to-use interface and stunning graphics, Autodesk Infraworks is an ideal vehicle for group discussions.

BIM offers benefits for water and wastewater treatment projects By Sondra Galbichka

B

uilding Information Modelling (BIM) turns 3D models into a data powerhouse. From structure and system analysis to quantity take-offs and item scheduling, it is designed to increase efficiency and transparency throughout the life cycle of a project. While commonly used on elaborate architectural designs, BIM is often overlooked for water and wastewater treatment applications. However, the benefits to using BIM for treatment facilities are numerous.

A picture is worth a thousand words The first and simplest benefit to BIM is as a 3D visualization tool. Imagine being able to see your site come to life, as early as the conceptual design phase. Programs such as Autodesk Infraworks are designed exactly for that purpose. Predominantly used for site layout, Infraworks’ Model Builder tool includes a spatial database that combines topography with aerial photos from anywhere in the world. With an easy-to-use interface and stunning graphics, Infraworks is an ideal vehicle for group discussions. 18 | February 2016

Not only can Infraworks recognize and import models from a variety of software platforms, model elements such as ground surfaces, roads and pipelines can be exported to a number of applications as the basis of design. Due to the true-to-life nature of 3D elements, BIM models are highly detailed early in the design process. When used to supplement contract documents, 3D walkthroughs have been proven to promote discussion and aid in identifying potential problems. Workshops with the City of Regina, during a wastewater treatment plant predesign project, generated so much constructive feedback from the owners, plant engineers and operating staff that using 3D walkthroughs to present a design is now common practice. More than just a pretty face While visualization is a valuable tool, 3D modelling is much more than that. Features such as intelligent tagging, powerful modelling tools and automated view generation increase productivity and improve workflows. Better yet, programs such as Autodesk Revit can easily accommodate design changes by allow-

ing you to change fitting or valve types or sizes with the click of a button. This eliminates the need for costly rework. Once the models are established, programs such as Autodesk Navisworks improve collaboration, with the ability to combine models from a variety of software platforms. Not only is this useful for visualizing the project as a whole, but Navisworks can also run clash detection reports, identifying conflicts between model elements before they can become a problem on site. In addition to improved productivity and clash detection, having an accurate 3D model of your facility can speed up computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling workflows, as the boundaries are already defined. A major flood event in Thunder Bay, Ontario precipitated the construction of an emergency flood relief channel at the Atlantic Avenue water pollution control plant. The 3D model, combined with CFD modelling software, was able to replicate emergency flow conditions that would have been hazardous to test in the field. As a result of the CFD model, the bypass capacity was confirmed continued overleaf...

3D Modelling and suggestions were made as to how flow configuration could be improved. What you see is what you get Retrofitting existing structures can be daunting. On large, complex, or older facilities, it is often difficult to accurately depict existing structures and systems. This may lead to costly changes during construction. 3D scanners emit laser beams to measure spatial data. Once a beam encounters a surface, it generates a digital point. A group of points, or Point Cloud, can then be imported into a variety of software programs. Programs such as Autodesk Revit can recognize certain point formations, making it easier to convert Point Clouds into 3D geometry. Once converted, you are given an accurate representation of existing structures and systems, forming a reliable 3D model of your facility. Time is on your side On every project, timing is an important factor. There is often a need for careful planning, using schedules and construction sequence plans to coordinate time-sensitive activities. But what if you could see into the future and witness the construction of your project without even breaking ground? 4D simulations do just that. A 4D simulation takes a 3D model and factors into the fourth dimension – time. Importing schedules directly from MS Project or Primavera, programs such as Autodesk Navisworks can link schedule activities to model elements, creating construction events. Once the timeline is finalized, you can watch the simulated construction of your model in real time, allowing you to identify potential issues on site. You may also assign monetary values to each construction activity, to help determine the approximate cost at every stage of construction. Model behaviour – putting the ‘I’ in BIM There are many programs, licensed or freeware, for creating 3D models, but the ‘Information’ side of Building Information Modelling is what sets it apart. Programs such as Autodesk Revit generate true-to-life walls, pipes and equipment, not just empty geometry. Each element placed in the model environment 20 | February 2016

has its own data set, which can be reported in tags and included in schedules and quantity take-offs. Schedule and quantity

Not only can the data be used to quantify and itemize elements, it can also be used in the program’s built-in analysis functions. tables are fully customizable to show only the required data, and will update automatically as elements are modified. During the functional design phase of the City of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba water pollution control facility expansion, quantity take-offs were taken directly from the 12 Revit models. This automatically calculated over 1,200 metres of pipe, 7,300 cubic metres of concrete and over 600 valves and fittings, saving valuable time.

Not only can the data be used to quantify and itemize elements, it can also be used in the program’s built-in analysis functions. Combining commodity data (temperature, viscosity, density), pipe material data (dimensions, roughness) and piping layout, Revit can calculate the flow in any segment of pipe in a system, or analyze a system as a whole, facilitating engineering checks. Regardless of a project’s size or complexity, BIM has the tools to save you time and money. By keeping the momentum going once your facility is up and running, you can actively monitor its performance. Use its scheduling capabilities to generate complete inventory lists and maintenance and repair logs. Input system data into the model to track building and process performance, monitoring trends in energy consumption and identifying areas that are not performing to their design standards.

Water Treatment

Improving operational efficiency and resiliency for high rate clarification systems in Calgary By Sarah Laidlaw

T

he City of Calgary operates two conventional surface water treatment plants with a combined production capacity of 950 ML/d. Glenmore water treatment plant was originally constructed in the 1930s and draws its source water from the Elbow River Watershed. Bearspaw water treatment plant was constructed in the 1970s and draws from the Bow River Watershed. In both watersheds, surface water turbidity ranges from 1 NTU to well over 1000 NTU during spring runoff events. In order to handle the large variation in source water turbidity, provide reliable year round capacity and ensure consistent, high quality treated water, both plants were upgraded in 2007, with high rate ballasted flocculation (ActifloÂŽ) clarification systems for pretreatment. This process consists of coagulation, polymer and microsand injection, flocculation and high rate settling. The settling tanks are equipped with lamella tube settlers, designed for a nominal 40 m/h rise rate, covering a surface area of approximately 104 m2. There are four process trains at Glenmore and six trains at Bearspaw, each designed to produce nominally 100 ML/d. Operating high rate clarification systems provides a number of production and performance benefits. The units have a much smaller footprint than conventional clarifiers (up to 50 times smaller) and the process is able to handle a large variation of incoming turbidity levels. At both Calgary plants, the process has proven to be resilient during high turbidity events. In addition, there is a high chemical (alum) turndown capability, wide nominal flow range (+/50%) and solids are removed from the process in real time. Although there are many advantages, the system does require a higher level of attention during variable water conditions. Lamella tube settlers require periodic cleaning to prevent buildup of floc particles. When operating under high rate loadings with the combination of polymer, microsand and higher source water turbidity, the risk of material buildup

increases. This leads to an increased risk of overloading the lamella support systems and results in higher frequency cleaning requirements. A common practice in Calgary was to wash down the tube settlers from the top, using spray water. However, with higher frequency cleanings and limited access to the larger surface area units, it becomes difficult to achieve uniform coverage using spray wash methods and

the surface openings of the tube settlers are more susceptible to damage, further increasing the risk of material buildup. Challenges faced from 2011 to 2013 In 2011, after the first four years of operation, the City started experiencing surface deterioration of the lamella tube settlers and increased solids buildup within the tubes. Cleaning typically involved continued overleaf...

fully draining down the tanks to manually clean all areas of the tube settlers. The City began to experiment with an integrated air scour cleaning system to reduce the use of spray water and the frequency of manual maintenance procedures. In the spring of 2013, the lamella support system for one of the clarifiers collapsed due to an increased buildup of solids within the tubes. In June 2013, Calgary experienced one of the most extreme runoff and flood events recorded. The water treatment plants saw source water turbidity rise to 3800 NTU at

Bearspaw, and over 4200 NTU at Glenmore, before the turbidity instrument range maxed out. The City managed to keep the clarified water turbidity coming out of the pretreatment process below 5 NTU throughout the flood event, and maintained consistent high quality production of drinking water. However, these events emphasized the need for improved resiliency of the clarification system and accelerated the development of a permanent and efficient air scour cleaning system.

Collaborative team approach The City engaged a team consisting of its engineers, consulting engineers (Associated Engineering) and vendors, Anthratech Western Inc. (AWI) and Veolia, formerly John Meunier Inc.(JMI) to provide an innovative design solution for the problem. AWI was retained to design an integrated tube settler cleaning process in the form of a new and innovative high rate fixed grid air scour system. JMI was retained to provide heavier gauge tube settlers for better resiliency. Associated

Water Treatment Engineering designed more robust structural beams, coordinated blower supply for the air scour system and additional components to provide a more resilient overall process system. In-house testing was completed by AWI, using test modules (tube settler packs) and a blower to determine flow distribution, orifice alignment and spacing to develop the optimum air scour system. Air flow and pressure requirements were determined and various water depths were tested to obtain the desired rolling effect in the water to allow solids to dislodge and settle. New air scour system and other components After conducting a significant amount of research and full scale in-house testing, it was concluded that providing a substantial amount of intermittent air flow up through the tube settlers would result in sufficient agitation to detach the solids buildup. A full scale air lateral was built and tested. A stainless steel lateral grid air scour system was custom-designed to accommodate the existing tank’s configuration.

www.esemag.com

The risk of tube settler system failure was mitigated by incorporating additional features into the system. Structural supports were made more robust, a beam deflection monitoring system was added, new lamella tubes were installed and in-tank lighting was included to facilitate tube settler inspection. The heavier structural beams can carry a greater capacity load and beam cross bracing was added to improve torsional rigidity. Angle bracing was added to reduce lateral deformation and risk of buckling. Beam deflection is monitored through vertical rods attached to the beams which can be visually inspected by operations staff. Additionally, a laser beam monitors deflection of the beam and sends an alarm to the plant’s control system if deflection occurs. The new tube settlers are heavier gauge and provide a more robust solution. The material was changed from PVC to styrene due to its stronger tear resistance, in order to minimize surface damage over time. The new lights allow staff to see through the tubes to visually monitor internal accumulations.

Operation of the air scour system Air scour cleaning is triggered after a preset interval, or when fouling of the tube settlers is noticed. Observing beam deflection would also indicate that air scour should occur. The procedure includes taking the clarifier offline and lowering the water level to just above the tubes so that the desired rolling effect for the cleaning process is achieved. The air scour lasts for a maximum period of ten minutes. Following this, a settling period is recommended to allow the detached solids to settle to the bottom of the clarifier. Conclusions The air scour system has been successfully installed and operated in all 10 units at the Bearspaw and Glenmore water treatment plants. The cleaning method is no longer time-consuming and inefficient. The collaborative team approach allowed for smooth project delivery and resulted in successful improvements for the City of Calgary and its operators.

New online calculator counts the cost of grit

H

ydro International has launched a new industry tool to help water and wastewater treatment plant operators to assess the full operating cost impact of grit deposition and abrasion on their plant efficiency. The Cost of Grit Calculator draws on real-world data collected from operating plants to predict the likely savings to treatment plant efficiency that can be gained by installing a high-performance grit removal system. It requires input of a small number of values to generate an estimate of the annual and life cycle savings that could be made by removing more grit at the headworks. Keith Hutchings, of Hydro International, explains: “Our experience of working with wastewater treatment plants in North America and around the world has taught us that operators are settling for only 30%-50% grit removal rates. The Advanced Grit Management philosophy is based on removing between 85%-95%

of all grit entering the plant. Using this as a target, the system can predict estimated improvements to operating efficiency by removing much greater volumes of grit before they clog tanks, basins and channels and abrade downstream process

equipment.” Having set operating plant capacity and preferred equipment lifetime cost into the system, users can input estimated or known costs of their downstream plant maintenance activities. These include the periodic cleanout of grit basins, aeration basins, or anaerobic digester tanks, as well as replacement and refurbishment costs for equipment such as pumps, centrifuges or membranes. Where operators are unable to provide values, averages are suggested based on actual costs from operating plants. Users can then save or print a detailed analysis of the results of the calculation. “Every plant is different, so the calculator is no substitute for a detailed site assessment of real-world grit concentration and behaviour, and actual sampling of incoming effluent prior to a detailed plant design,” adds Hutchings. “However, our research shows that poor grit removal is a major source of avoidable process inefficiency, operating, maintenance and replacement costs. We hope the tool will help designers and operators to simply demonstrate the benefits for improved grit removal and help to justify optimum capital and operating cost decisions.” For more information, Email: wwinquiryUS@hydro-int.com, or visit: www.advancedgritmanagement.com

Wastewater Treatment Organic matter must be eliminated upstream of the ammonia nitrogen removal stage to avoid bacterial competition. Organic nitrogen is ammonified into ammonia nitrogen, which in turn can be nitrified. Nitrification is achieved under aerobic conditions in two successive steps by autotrophic bacteria, first into nitrites (NO2‐) and then into nitrates (NO3‐). The final product of nitrification is therefore nitrates, which are not regulated by the CMM. Nitrification consumes a significant quantity of alkalinity (often lacking in industrial wastewater) at a ratio of 7.14 mgCaCO3/mgN nitrified. A pH control using soda ash is generally required in order to fill this gap. Unlike nitrites, nitrates produced during nitrification are not toxic to aquatic life at concentrations lower than 1000 mgN/L. In the event that a regulation was adopted on total nitrogen, nitrites and nitrates (NOx) would have to be eliminated prior to discharge. Denitrification enables the reduction of NOx to nitrogen gas (N2) via the biodegradation of a carbon source in which the oxygen atoms of nitrite and nitrate molecules are used for biomass respiration. The main advantage of denitrification is the gain in alkalinity produced by the reaction. Likewise, adding a pre‐ denitrification stage upstream of nitrification makes it possible to reduce the consumption of chemicals to be fed into the nitrification reactor. Also, the carbon coming from the COD/BOD in the raw water can be used. A recirculation loop allows for the influx of NOx from the nitrification reactor at the head of the treatment process. As the biomass is fixed on the plastic carrier, a biomass specialized in each condition develops in each reactor, eliminating potential bacterial competition. An innovative and recently marketed alternative combines these two processes into one: the deammonification process. A single treatment stage is now used for the abatement of ammonia nitrogen while limiting nitrate production in the wastewater. The ANITA™Mox process consists of promoting the growth and protection of specific bacteria on media carriers, while ensuring the control of biomass in the reactor and minimizing external oxyC

Wastewater Treatment

The ANITA™Mox process consists of promoting the growth and protection of specific bacteria on media carriers.

nitrification process, the ANITA™Mox process requires exceptional oxygen control in order to minimize the dissolved oxygen (O2) used to produce nitrites. This drives the conversion of the residual ammonia nitrogen into nitrogen gas (N2) by means of a deammonification reaction. A small quantity of nitrates is also produced by this reaction. Bacteria for the anoxic reduction of ammonia nitrogen (anammox: ANaerobic AMMO-

nia OXidation) require specific growth characteristics, such as high temperature and a low concentration of dissolved oxygen. Ammonia nitrogen removal rates of more than 80% are generally achieved in heavily charged water, i.e., more than 1000 mgN‐NH4/L. This technology is applicable for wastewater that has an ammonia nitrogen concentration exceeding approximately 150 mgN/L. In all cases, control of the nutrients

and the operating parameters needed for bacteria growth is required, as is the addition of a post‐treatment stage for the removal of the total suspended solids produced. This results in treated water that can be discharged into the sewer system and that meets all regulations. Simon Vincent, B.Sc.

Mechanical wastewater systems in the far north face many challenges By Glenn Prosko and David Lycon

C

onsistent performance of waste water treatment in Canada’s far north can be an elusive objective and a frustration for engineers, communities, governments and regulators. Most northern communities utilize wastewater retention ponds with periodic discharge, as these systems perform well and the technology involved is simple. Mechanical wastewater treatment systems are used where lagoon systems cannot be applied. However, they have experienced a variety of challenges. In Nunavut, only Rankin Inlet,

Pangnirtung, and Iqaluit use mechanical wastewater systems. The system in Rankin Inlet is preliminary treatment by screening to remove large solids. Pangnirtung’s system is secondary treatment, which originally used a rotating biological contactor. The system in Iqaluit has preliminary and primary treatment for the removal of solids by screening. Although designs for secondary treatment systems have been completed in Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit, construction of them has not yet been authorized. In the Northwest Territories and the

Yukon, Fort Simpson, Carmacks, and Dawson City use mechanical wastewater treatment systems. All of these facilities are secondary treatment systems, with a disinfection process. In the early 1990s, Fort Simpson advanced a project for improvements to their wastewater treatment, using drum screens. However, a design/build proposal in 1997 proposed secondary treatment with a physical/chemical process instead. The system was commissioned in 2002, but it has experienced performance issues. Dawson had been planning to con-

Water & Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates struct a sequencing batch reactor facility in 2002, but the annual operation and maintenance estimate of $600,000 stopped the project. A new project emerged for an aerated lagoon, just south of the community. However, it was halted in 2008 because of its proximity to a residential subdivision. The Yukon Government then decided to fund a design/build proposal for a mechanical system. A contract for $25 million was awarded in 2009 for the Vertreat process (deep shaft technology). The facility was commissioned in 2012, but has had some performance issues. The original Carmacks wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was commissioned in 1975, and the facility operated successfully for 35 years. A design/ build request for proposal was issued in 2005 for a new mechanical system. The facility has operated reasonably well since it was commissioned in 2009. Regardless of the community and the wastewater process, the natural environment in the north affects access for construction, operation and maintenance, due to extreme and highly variable weather. The climate in the far north is extremely cold, with an average daily mean temperature of less than 0oC. This means that all infrastructure must be designed and constructed for protection against freezing and, in some cases, thawing. There are generally great distances between northern communities and major centres further south. In Nunavut, for example, none of the communities have all-weather road access. They must rely solely on year round access by air, and resupply between late July and mid-October. These factors mean that the design and construction of a mechanical WWTP in the far north should follow well-established procedures and practices. The selection of a WWTP process for the north should be carefully executed, because the area is not an appropriate testing ground for new technologies or technologies that do not have a track record. In designing a facility, the consulting resources applied should have the appropriate northern experience. This goes for expertise in all of the technical disciplines associated with a WWTP, www.esemag.com

i.e., wastewater process, structural, geotechnical, heating, ventilation, electrical, instrumentation and controls. Contractors too should have the appropriate northern experience, or they will likely encounter problems during the project. Administrators of the construction contract for a WWTP must have the resources in place to provide comprehensive contract monitoring, reporting and responses from start to finish. Without this, a project can deviate from its objectives and may not recover properly, Effectively engaging the local population is vital to the successful operation

and maintenance of a wastewater treatment plant. This facility is an important legacy that should last a generation, and positively impact the human and financial resources of the community. Each and every project in the north is unique, so ultimately there is no “recipe� for success. However, by sharing project experiences, the potential list of things that can go wrong when a project is underway may be greatly reduced. Glenn Prosko and David Lycon are with Stantec.

New package water treatment plant built for remote Inuit community of Kugaaruk

B

uilding a water treatment plant for a remote community with extreme weather conditions comes with a unique set of challenges. Kugaaruk, Nunavut, an Inuit community with a population of 770 and growing, is the location of the coldest wind chill ever recorded in Canada, -92°C in 1975. The sea around Kugaaruk is teeming with narwhals, belugas, walruses and polar bears. The land has been a traditional hunting ground for thousands of years. The hamlet’s water treatment plant was built in the late 1980s. It chlorinated raw water but there was no filtration or redundancy. Source water is from a manmade reservoir along the Kugaaruk River, two kilometres northeast of the Arctic bay. The bay and river surface are frozen most of the year, and when it does thaw, there are very high levels of sediments and dissolved minerals. The plant was suffering from extensive corrosion due to chlorine spills. Some of the pipes and fittings were growing green from chlorine contact. Vandalism from hunters in the area and fire damage to one of the two generators also took its toll. As there was no utility power available until September 2013, the only power available to the plant was from a diesel generator. According to the operators, residents considered the water from this plant to be undrinkable or over-chlorinated most of the time. They would often drive to the reservoir to refill their household water tanks rather than use water treated by the plant. In January 2010, a tidal surge introduced salt water into the reservoir, forcing residents to transport water by sled from the river upstream. In 2012, BI Pure Water and Williams Engineering of Yellowknife were contracted by the Nunavut government to design, build and deliver a modular water treatment system to Kugaaruk. The engineering objective was to maintain functionality and reliability of the water system in consistently subzero, and often -40oC temperatures. Mobility was

also a consideration. It was thought that, if salt water incursions occurred again, the plant would have to be relocated further upstream. The site engineering for a more effective water system involved positioning the intake lines between the river surface ice, which can be 2 m or more deep, and avoiding near-bottom layers

The new treatment plant not only called for ingenuity in engineering, but also in construction and delivery. where river sediment or pockets of salt water may be present. New screens were installed on the intake pipe, and it was raised above the river bottom. Salinity sensors were installed to alert the operator of possible salt water contamination. A new plant with two independent parallel treatment trains was designed. It included submersible intake pumps, high efficiency cartridge filtration, UV primary disinfection, chlorine residual

disinfection and dual truck-fill stations, for 100% redundancy. As the UV lamps take several minutes to warm up and cycling them too often can shorten their operating life, it was decided that they would remain energized 24 hours a day. During extended periods when no water is flowing from the reservoir into the delivery trucks, a small volume of water is retained and re-circulated through the UV units to cool the lamps. Excess heat is then transferred to the interior walls of the water treatment plant through heat exchangers, reducing demand on the interior heating units. The old building was completely refurbished and converted into a chlorine storage and backup generator building. New chemical resistant cabinets were installed, with appropriate ventilation, for secure storage of the water treatment chemicals. The new treatment plant not only called for ingenuity in engineering, but also in construction and delivery. It was built from three modified sea containers at BI Pure Water’s factory in Surrey, British Columbia. It was then loaded onto semi-trailer trucks for delivery to Montreal. From Montreal it was continued overleaf...

Water & Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates shipped to Nanisivik, a Canadian Forces naval facility at the eastern entrance to the Northwest Passage. With perpetual broken ice in the Kugaaruk area even in summer, shipments usually have to be transferred onto a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker to complete the final leg of the journey. The normal icebreaker serving this region, the CCGS Terry Fox, was being refitted in 2013. The replacement vessel was smaller, reducing the normal size and weight limit for cargo. So, the original engineered length of the treatment plant and weight of all its components had to be reconfigured. Once the plant containers arrived on the open tundra, BI Pure Water staff had to complete the build of the system on site beside the reservoir. “You have to load the container with everything you think you might need or figure out how to get what you need without the normal resources,” says Paul Hendriks, project manager for Kugaaruk. “It’s not possible to run to a hard-

Agreement was made with the hamlet for the purchase of such an excavator, which was shipped along with the water treatment plant building modules. Plant commissioning, which can be done only during the short construction season, was completed by the fall of 2014. The plant can be monitored and managed quite easily by the operator via the touchscreen control panel, but remote monitoring was requested. A computer was added so that anyone with the login can view the plant’s software and performance via modem. It also allows BI Pure Water staff to assist the operator from Vancouver.

ast November, the James Smith Cree Nation welcomed about 50 people for an open house at their integrated biological reverse osmosis membrane (IBROM) water treatment plant. The attendees included First Nations, James Smith Indian Reserve residents, including James Smith Cree Nation (JSCN) Chief, Justin Burns, visitors from Stanley Mission, industry representatives, two representatives from the Water Security Agency, and main presenter, Dr. Hans Peterson. Peterson developed the IBROM technology through trial and error at Yellow Quill, Saskatchewan, from 2002 to 2004. JSCN Director of Public Works, Bill Marion, called the system “impressive,” expressing his thanks to Indigenous Affairs for funding the technology. According to Peterson, the IBROM process utilizes naturally occurring bacteria, in a controlled environment, to remove contaminants from the water. Following this process, treated water goes through a reverse osmosis (RO) membrane. Slight amounts of chlorine are then added to prevent contamination in the distribution system.

“What’s interesting,” said Peterson, “is that the process renders water so pure that the treated water must pass through a mineral bed of calcium and magnesium to increase the pH and add nutrients that are beneficial to human health.” The system is currently operational in 15 First Nations communities, with two more scheduled for construction in 2016. “I think it’s very worthy to advocate

and promote this type of technology, not just within Saskatchewan, but nationally,” said Marion.

NTWWA conference examines challenges in Canada’s North By Thomas Rohner

T

he 2015 Northern Territories Water and Waste Association’s annual conference, held in Iqaluit, Nunavut, from November 20 - 22, was the little conference that could. For organizer Pearl Benyk, one of the highlights was that it happened at all, despite problems created by fickle Arctic weather, expensive air travel and restrictive flying schedules. “It wouldn’t be a conference anywhere in the North if some people weren’t weathered out,” Benyk joked after the conference. In the end, eight of the 60 registered participants were weathered out, but those who did make it to Nunavut’s capital enjoyed three days of presentations, workshops, networking and local entertainment. “This is the one time in the year when these people get to network and

hear what others in the territories are doing,” Benyk said. Federal cabinet minister Hunter Tootoo, from Nunavut’s Kivalliq region on the western coast of Hudson Bay, provided the keynote address on November 22 and reminded the audience how important their work is in ensuring remote communities’ access to clean water. “Groups such as yours, discussing cutting-edge technologies and how they can be provided in our unique northern environment, are key,” the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard said. There are many unique challenges that both operators and scientists involved in water and wastewater treatment face in Canada’s North. Justin Hazenberg, an engineering team leader

Water & Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates for the Government of Northwest Territories’ water and sanitation efforts, said many of those unique challenges can be boiled down to logistics. “Down south you can go to the hardware store; you can get parts shipped to you fairly quickly, and you can get an electrician or a plumber, sometimes within an hour, if you need to,” said Hazenberg, a long time NTWWA board member and past president. By contrast, all of Nunavut’s 25 communities are only accessible by plane during the winter months; the same goes for the overwhelming majority of the NWT’s 30-odd communities. That means that small parts required by plant operators in most communities need to be flown in, and large parts need to be shipped up from the south during the sealift season - about three months during the summer. “Also, you’ve got a limited pool of professionals and much higher energy costs to contend with,” Hazenberg added. While he is wary of rushing ahead

Water & Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates in those communities has enabled him to provide much more efficient support. “Now I can connect to the computers in the water plants and read all the data local operators are reading,” Hazenberg said. Previously, he’d been using a dial-up system to connect to those computers, but, because of bad reception on phone lines, that was often a frustrating exercise. Also, the new 3G technology means fewer expensive flights into the communities. In general, technologies that are passive, low-energy and relatively uncomplicated tend to work best in the North. Wastewater systems across Nunavut and the NWT, for example, have historically used a combination of lagoons and wetlands. The cost to build lagoons can be substantial up front, but after construction they require minimal oversight and operate passively as micro-organisms break down organic matter. This system is similar to what is often used across rural Canada. In Nunavut, there are a few excep-

Three other Nunavut communities, including Iqaluit, have what are “loosely described as mechanical

plants”as they macerate waste, creating a slurry that is injected directly into the ocean. Research is still emerging on the environmental impacts of this practice on local marine ecosystems, Hazenberg said. Researchers from Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University, funded by the Government of Nunavut, reported at the conference that only Iqaluit has seen a negative impact so far, with a “dead zone” created in the effluent area. But the lagoon-wetland system used widely across the North has a major drawback: the system works best in the short Arctic summer, and largely freezes up the rest of the year. And, for booming communities like Iqaluit, with a population around 7,000, the required size of lagoons can be impracticably large. Researchers from the federal National Research Council told the conference that they may have found a solution to this. Boris Tartakovsky, a senior NRC researcher, and Yehuda Kleiner, a principal research officer, explained that the vast

Environmental Science & Engineering Magazine


Water & Wastewater Treatment in Cold Climates majority of communities in the North have trucked water and sewage service. That results in residents using, on average, about one-third of the water per day, as compared to residents who receive their water through pipes. In turn, sewage waste from homes receiving trucked water service is much more concentrated. “The technology we’re developing lends itself very well to concentrated sewage,” Tartakovsky said. The technology basically involves adaptations to the primitive septic tank system. As anaerobic digesters, septic tanks produce onetenth of the secondary sludge as compared to aerobic systems. Methane gas is produced as a byproduct - usually vented out of the tank. Anaerobic micro-organisms metabolize organic matter by transferring electrons from the matter to an electron carrier, such as nitrate or metal - a process called oxidation. Tartakovsky and Kleiner say they’ve increased this rate of oxidation by inserting a set of electrodes into the tank:

one anode (negative) and one cathode (positive). The cathode collects electrons, helping the micro-organisms to transfer electrons more quickly, thereby increasing the rate at which they metabolize the organic matter. “We improve degradation rate in the absence of oxygen by electrically stimulating the micro-organisms,” Tartakovksy said. And that’s not all the researchers say they’ve accomplished. By harnessing the byproduct of methane gas, they can put that gas to work. “These processes require heat in the North. Temperatures have to be kept a little above zero Celsius,” Kleiner said. “There will be sufficient methane to provide heat, and very likely there will be waste heat, that can be used in the same enclosure to grow food, and to run a greenhouse 24/7. It’s not going to solve food insecurity problems, but it could contribute to the solution.” But, the researchers say they are taking a cautious approach with their new technology. Their lab results show that

effluent standards can be brought to the new levels introduced by Environment Canada in 2012. The territories have been given a five-year leeway period to investigate how feasible the new standards are in Canada’s Arctic. The next step for the NRC is to run a pilot project with this technology in a less harsh climate, such as Ontario or Quebec, Kleiner said. After that, a pilot project in the Arctic would be needed before a larger-scale installation could be attempted. Discussing ideas with far-reaching potential, like that presented by the NRC researchers, is one of the things that makes the NTWWA annual conference so valuable to those involved in the water and wastewater industry in the North. “These are northern people here, and these are good souls. They always appreciate what they get,” Benyk said. Thomas Rohner is a journalist living in Iqaluit. Email: thomas.rohner@gmail.com

Water Storage

How to get the most out of your water storage tanks By Robertson Gibb vehicle inspection camera, by partially draining the tank, or by a completely dry confined space entry. After the warranty period, the AWWA recommends a comprehensive inspection every three to five years. Once the coating starts to break down, the rate of deterioration of the coating system and underlying steel substrate will be accelerated. Also, the amount of metal loss and pitting within the tank increases. It is most important to monitor the condition of the tank in the latter half of its service life to avoid more extensive repairs.

Regardless of tank type, a routine inspection schedule should be implemented.

ater pressure and distribution in most communities is maintained via steel water storage tanks, which operate relatively maintenance and trouble free for extended multi-year periods. However, the time comes when gradual corrosion, OH&S regulation updates, water quality fluctuations or even ‘loss-of-curb’ appeal, can result in this mostly ‘passive’ infrastructure requiring upgrades. This can cost up to one-third of the initial construction cost. Therefore, a rehabilitation program should be designed to ensure asset preservation, process water quality improvements, and operator safety. With tanks constructed 30 or more years ago, the entire exterior structure required recoating. These include multileg, spheroid, and single-pedestal fluted steel tanks. Both the water containing tank shell and supporting structure (i.e., pedestal or column used to raise the storage tank for optimal distribution pressures) required a coating system to

prevent rapid and excess rusting. In the early 1980s, composite welded steel tanks began to appear. While the elevated steel tank still required refurbishment every 15-20 years, the concrete pedestal was essentially maintenance free. The relatively low construction costs and reduced maintenance helped lead to an almost exclusive adoption of this tank type. Recently, a relatively new tower type, comprised of a concrete pedestal, supporting a bolted glass-lined steel tank, has emerged. This option is similar to the standard composite elevated welded steel tank except that the glass-lined bolted steel structure does not require recoating. Routine inspection Regardless of tank type, a routine inspection schedule should be implemented. Initial inspections should take place on the first and second year anniversary of a new coating application (or after new tank construction). These can be completed by a remotely operated

Initiating a tank rehabilitation program A field investigation (condition survey), combined with an NACE inspection of the interior and exterior surfaces of the elevated tank, is recommended to develop the overall scope of a project. The inspections will provide a basis for deciding which AWWA coating system(s) are most applicable and identify upgrades that should be done in parallel with the coating operation. There are five interior and seven outside coating systems listed in AWWA Standard D102. The NACE coating inspection should examine both the interior and exterior coatings to gather data to assess options. The inspection should include evaluation of blistering, chalking and UV degradation, size and frequency of visible corrosion areas, dry film thickness of the existing coatings and adhesion value. Sampling for designated and hazardous substances in the existing coating system should also take place. Interior coating The condition of the tank interior will dictate whether a full interior recoating or maintenance coating is warranted.

tem. Maintenance coating is applicable, when coating degradation is limited to specific irregular areas such as seams, welds or concentrated ice damage. Commonly specified interior coating systems are a 100% solids polyurethane coating (AWWA ICS-4) or an organic zinc-rich primer with epoxy top coat(s) (AWWA ICS-3, AWWW ICS-5). The ICS-4 system is a proven long-lasting method that has been used for many years. ICS-3 or ICS-5 systems are much more recent developments. However, accelerated laboratory testing suggests these will last longer than ICS-4. Full details of the coating systems can be found in the recently revised AWWA D102-14 standard. This provides the minimum coating standards for steel water storage tanks. However, they can be augmented to suit varying tank conditions, improve longevity, or 46 | February 2016

facilitate the coating process. Exterior coating There are three standard exterior coating approaches: recoating, overcoating and maintenance coating. The principles of recoating are similar to interior coating, except that the coating systems and surface preparation differ. Overcoating involves washing and application of a penetrating sealer over the existing exterior system. The new coating is applied directly on top of the old one. The principal advantages of overcoating are shorter construction time and the cost savings by avoiding full scaffolding and containment around the tank. However, an overcoating system would be expected to last 15 - 25 years compared to 25 - 30 years for a complete recoating. Also, if the tank is situated in

populated areas, or the existing coating system contains lead, exterior shrouding (containment) will be needed. After the exterior coating approach is selected, there are seven outdoor coating systems (OCS) identified in AWWA Standard D102-14 that may be considered. Consideration should be given to long-term durability, corrosion resistance, long-term colour retention, and UV resistance. Some key considerations are the season and timeline in which the exterior coating is being applied, and the available capital budget. Aliphatic fluorourethane finish on an OCS-4 system (zinc-rich primer, polyurethane, fluorourethane top coat) will offer excellent UV resistance and gloss retention, but will likely be more expensive, at least initially. The OSC-7 system is comcontinued overleaf...

Of particular note, the CSA Standard CSA Z259.2.1 (Fall Arresters, Vertical Lifelines and Rails) has been split into two separate standards: CSA Z259.2.4 (Fall Arresters and Vertical Rigid Rails) and CSA Z259.2.5 (Fall Arresters and Vertical Lifelines).

As with the interior coating, it is possible to augment the AWWA system with additional stripe coats or intermediate layers to gain more longevity. Hazardous substances Lead and chromium should be sampled in the existing paint system as they are often found in older tank coatings. If these substances are found, lead abatement measures, including tank scaffolding and containment, negative pressure ventilation, treatment of abrasive blasting materials and disposal of hazardous waste materials, will be needed.

Water Storage tank back in service for another 20 - 30 years. Water quality improvements A mixing system can improve water consistency within a storage tank by circulating water to limit stratification and providing the following benefits: • Mitigate against significant variations in chlorine residuals (or pockets with low chlorine) which may reduce chemical dosage requirements upstream; • Limit the occurrence of short circuiting, nitrification and ice formation; • Minimize temperature and water age variations. Many existing tanks have separate inlet and outlet (fill/draw) piping to provide some built-in protection against complete “short-circuiting” of the water volume. However, these do not prevent stratification from thermal gradients, or chemical stratification of sodium hypochlorite. A tank rehabilitation project is a good opportunity to carry out water storage quality improvements. Historical chlorine residuals, levels and temperature fluctuations should be examined to assess if, and what type of

a mixing system might optimize water quality output. Selection of a mixing system will be dependent on the characteristics of a tank and the desired components to be mixed. For example, thermal stratification requires less mixing energy than chemical stratification to achieve the equivalent water uniformity. Mixing systems can be either passive or active. Passive mixing systems operate solely on differential pressure during the active fill cycle, thus tanks with low tank turnover will benefit less from a hydrodynamic mixing. Active mixing systems require a small electrical component, either for a booster pump or to drive small impeller motors within the tank. These active mixing systems generally have lower capital costs and can be turned on intermittently, if chemical dosing is being applied at the tank. Conclusions While the public’s perception of a project will likely revolve around the final selection of the exterior colours and logo, a tank rehabilitation program must go beyond simply “painting the tower”.

The rehabilitation should seek to: • Ensure the correct coating system is selected for long-term corrosion protection; • Verify the coating system is being applied with sufficient quality assurance (i.e., inspection) to maximize the life of the coating system; • Identify and quantify the potential tank repairs that are needed before recoating; • Minimize financial risks to the tank owner due to unforeseen construction change orders or cost escalations, particularity due to hazardous substances; • Review and implement opportunities for water quality improvement; • Reduce liability related to overspray during coating application; • Ensure conformance with current Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) requirements.

Why it can be better to risk assess instead of remediate contaminated lands By Sajjad Din

G

enerally speaking, remediation or reclamation is a process in which consultants, contractors, construction managers, engineers and scientists conduct a series of steps to return land back to its original pre-human activity state, in terms of concentrations of various compounds in the soil and groundwater. A risk assessment scientifically assesses the potential risk that exists for humans, plants, wildlife and the natural environment from exposure to a contaminant. The purpose of a risk assessment is to develop site-specific standards that will allow uses, such as residential, that are being proposed to take place on the property. In Ontario, remediation may only require cleanup to certain standards as outlined in the Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards for Use under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act. In many circumstances, achieving cleanup to these standards may be physically or chemically difficult due to various factors such as existing infrastructure, current land use, depth of impacts, soil types or shallow bedrock. For example, impacted groundwater may not be treatable due to it being at depths greater than 20 metres within the bedrock. Cleanup cost for said groundwater may be astronomical and hence beyond the financial reach of the owner or interested parties. Prior to completing a remediation program, remedial options feasibility assessment should be carried out, in order to assess what method or methods of cleanup would be most suitable and effective. This may also be called a comparative analysis, in order to prepare a Remediation Action Plan. As part of this process, the options of natural attenuation and/or a risk assessment should be considered. Natural attenuation considers the allowance for the natural breakdown and reduction in contaminants over time. This is verifiable by monitoring, i.e., testing of samples collected in the field. Risk assessments consider existing natural barriers or placing artificial administrative or engineered barriers between human occupants of a

property and the contaminants present. Municipalities want to curb urban sprawl, and brownfields redevelopment is one way to do this. The site assessment process is a significant part of urban brownfield development. However, once Phase I and II site assessments are complete and the aerial and vertical extent of impacts have been defined, depth to bedrock determined, soil characteristics verified, hydraulic conductivity and groundwater flow direction ascertained, it still is not always clear as to what remedial approach would be best suited to a site. This is because there may still be uncertainties regarding subsurface biochemical oxygen demand and other soil and groundwater characteristics. A major factor in determining remedial methods is the type of pollutant and its potential mobility and reactivity. Most contaminants can be broken down into volatile organic compounds, petroleum hydrocarbons, metals and inorganics, pesticides/herbicides and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The type of contaminants found should be considered when deciding on whether to simply risk assess. This is because the mobility and the fate and transport of them will determine the level of risk to the local human and ecological populations.. With remediation, one can aspire to end up with a property that meets applicable standards. Ideally, all impacted material is removed or treated. This allows the site owner or developer to carry out any type of land use they wish. Also, lending institutions are more willing to front the funds to purchase such a property.

However, remediation work may cost millions, depending on the level and extent of contaminants of concern on-site, soil types, existing buildings, infrastructure and groundwater conditions. The remedial approach may involve both ex situ and in situ treatment methods. Additionally, there would likely be disruption to site activities. Though certain costs are inherently a part of any risk assessment process, this route may be far more cost-effective and time efficient. With remediation projects, specifically in situ, there is an inherent uncertainty of the amount of time that would be required for completion. The process would require study of which site-specific standards should be developed to allow contaminants to remain on-site in higher concentrations then would otherwise be permitted under the generic Ministry standards. For risk assessment, a team of professionals with diverse skills in science and engineering would develop specific standards based on the current and proposed site use. This would involve an assessment of site conditions such as geology, concentrations of contaminants, human occupancy, building structures (existing and proposed) and infrastructure. Based on these parameters, acceptable levels of contaminants left in place are determined. Additionally, certain engineering controls such as sub-slab ventilation, concrete barriers, solidification/stabilization, Waterloo Barriers and underground slurry walls are introduced into the assessment calculations. In the long run, a wiser use of both remedial and risk assessment options will be required for greater urban redevelopment and revitalization. Too many contaminated properties lie unused that could be redeveloped if a risk assessment is conducted and the risk posed by on-site contamination is deemed to be acceptable.

Corrugation growth in plastic pipe impacts Manning’s n Value.

Unrealistic roughness coefficient could impair pipe capacity By Paul Imm

D

ue to factors like climate change and intensified urban development, insurance claims in Canada from water damage exceed claims from fire, theft, and other natural disasters combined. This is compounded by the fact that the average cost of each home insurance claim is rising significantly because more homeowners are furnishing their basements as a living space. Because of this, the Insurance Bureau of Canada recognized the need to better understand their exposure from municipal-side factors and they were motivated to develop the Municipal Risk Assessment Tool (MRAT). This pilot project assesses the impact of severe weather events on urban drainage systems and identifies where potential municipal infrastructure vulnerabilities may exist. One aspect of sewer and culvert design which may come under scrutiny is how the Manning formula is used to determine a pipe size that is sufficient to carry a design peak flow. More specifically, design engineers need to use an appropriate flow resistance coefficient, or Manning’s n roughness coefficient. Many jurisdictions www.esemag.com

across Canada seem to agree that a Manning’s n Value of 0.012 or 0.013 is appropriate for all smooth wall pipe. This includes concrete, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe with a smooth interior surface. Surprisingly, a small number of Canadian municipalities are willing to ignore the best practices adopted by many of these jurisdictions and still allow the use of a Manning’s n Value as low as 0.009 for plastic pipe. Design engineers must keep in mind that the Manning formula, developed in 1890, is an empirical relationship with a roughness coefficient n Value that actually varies with pipe size, slope of the pipe, and flow depth. Engineers must also recognize that the Manning’s n Value of 0.009 is derived from laboratory studies that examined small pipe sizes, or is based on clean water flowing through short sections of new pipe, not in-service sewers. Similar laboratory studies with concrete pipe have also resulted in Manning’s n Values of 0.009. However, the concrete pipe industry has traditionally promoted the use of a more conservative

n Value to account for the differences between laboratory testing and actual installed conditions. Engineers familiar with pipe design know that flow resistance in a pipe is significantly affected by more factors than just the pipe material. Based on lab experiments, field studies, and hydraulic theory, it is evident that all hydraulically smooth wall pipes should be designed with the same Manning’s n Value, regardless of pipe material. For a simplified and conservative method of estimating pipe capacities and flow velocities in actual working conditions, a constant Manning’s n Value of 0.013 for all smooth wall pipe materials will account for the head losses at manholes, pipe joints and fittings, and alignment changes. Sediment deposits and slime buildup inside an in-service pipe also result in the roughness coefficient being essentially the same for all pipe materials. Any jurisdiction that still allows the use of an unrealistically low Manning’s n roughness coefficient for a sewer or culvert design may be unintentionally putting its own infrastructure and residents at risk of future sewer backups and flooded basements.

Environmental Approvals

Building a better framework for EAs in Ontario

T

he Modernization of Approvals Branch (MAB) of Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) is leading the implementation of a modernized approach to environmental approvals, to create faster, smarter, streamlined government-to-business services, while maintaining high standards of environmental protection. MAB is supporting modernization through partnerships that put sustainable, innovative solutions into action. The branch works with stakeholders to propose, evaluate, communicate and support modernization activities within the context of a risk-based, client-centred system. First steps The first major milestone on modernized approvals came in 2011, with the implementation of a new, two-pronged risk-based online environmental registration system. The first stream of approvals was for more routine activities that presented lower risks to the environment and were well understood. Applications for these types of activities then became eligible to be submitted online through the Environmental Activity and Sector Registry (EASR). The second stream was for more unique or more complex activities that

Since 2011, the following sectors have qualified for EASRs, resulting in time and cost savings for clients: • Automotive refinishing • Commercial printing facilities • Heating • Non-hazardous waste transportation systems • Small ground-mounted solar facilities

The idea of clean water is easy to grasp.

• Standby power systems. Moving forward In 2015, an important next step towards modernization took place when the ministry developed an electronic Environmental Compliance Approval System (eECAS). Moving to electronic service delivery means clients can apply for an ECA anywhere, pay for and then track the status of their application from their computer.

Environmental Approvals The future of modernization of approvals does not stop there. The ministry is committed to modernizing other permitting, licensing and approvals programs over time, which will result in real benefits to clients, taxpayers and the government. These include such programs as brownfields, municipal wastewater and pesticides. To support the release of eECAS, the ministry is conducting a controlled launch. A limited number of online applications will be received and processed to better train ministry staff and make adjustments to improve the client experience. During the controlled launch period, ministry staff directly involved in the business of approvals received in-class training. The ministry also developed a series of eECAS e-learning modules available to all staff to allow them to get comfortable with the new system before launching to the public. Two online tutorials for external clients will be made available online. Other sources of guidance to support

clients include an updated ECA Guide, as well as updated or new sample applications. These provide a common understanding of the level and extent of documentation required for ministry decision-making on an ECA. Through learning by example, clients receive clarity, consistency and support for thorough and complete submissions. This material is also going to be available online. The ministry is well on the road to becoming a more modern regulator. The positive benefits include improved effectiveness, flexibility, transparency and cost efficiency. As of mid-January 2016, there were 4,203 EASR registrations, generating approximately $32.9 million in savings for businesses that have registered since 2011. Given the ongoing success of the EASR and the potential benefits to Ontario’s regulated sector, the branch continues to propose additional EASR candidates for consideration by the ministry. It is currently working on a draft regulation for posting on the Environmental Registry on End of Life Vehicles pro-

cessing sites registering on the EASR. Ontario is part of the North American manufacturing heartland, and home to thousands of manufacturing businesses. After California and Texas, Ontario has the most manufacturing employees of any jurisdiction in Canada or the United States. Proposing a new EASR to target low-risk, well understood manufacturing sectors under the category of ’general manufacturing’ will streamline the approvals process for a wide variety of manufacturing sectors in the province. It will provide significant benefits to this sector, while continuing to ensure these businesses operate without compromising Ontario’s environmental health.

control strategies can be determined, on an individual basis, with respect to plant design and configuration, severity of problems, and financial implications.

Importance of phase contrast microscopy in wastewater operations By Ryan Hennessy

W

astewater process control is becoming increasingly complex, as permit limits become more stringent and BNR (biological nutrient removal) configurations are incorporated into new designs and plant upgrades. Also, there are many facilities that are operating above design loading conditions with aging equipment and infrastructure. In many smaller municipalities and industrial wastewater treatment systems, funding for plant upgrades can often be problematic. Every wastewater treatment facility has its own unique set of challenges, but the basic principles of phase contrast microscopy do not change. A trained professional is capable of finding out what is going on in a system within several minutes, using techniques from the 3rd Edition Manual on the Causes and Control of Activated Sludge Bulking, Foaming, and Other Solids Separation Problems (Jenkins, 2004). Sludge quality problems In wastewater operations, the goal is to produce a good quality sludge that

56 | February 2016

settles and compacts well and leaves behind a clear supernatant. Regardless of the process flow schematic, there is an area where biological treatment occurs and an area where solids (bacteria) are separated from the treated water. Also, growth pressures within the system will dictate the type of micro-organisms that will compete. To grow the desired types of organism, a “bug friendly” environment is needed. This involves the type of food present (such as limiting fats, oils, grease, septicity and sources of toxicity) in the influent; maintaining the desired values for pH, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen and nutrients; and, having a general control over the biological growth rates (sludge age, food to micro-organism ratio). Ultimately, sludge quality problems are a result of the conditions present within the plant. Common problems include dispersed growth (results in turbid effluent), sludge bulking (poor settling), poor floc quality (pin floc, diffuse floc structure, etc.) and foaming in the aeration basin. The microscope can be used to diagnose problems. Then, based on this diagnosis, short-term and long-term

Microscope essentials and tips To effectively use the microscope in wastewater, a research-grade, phase contrast microscope with 10x and 100x (oil immersion) phase contrast objectives that yield magnifications of approximately 100x and 1000x, respectively, is needed (Jenkins, 2004). For photography, a microscope with a trinocular head and a digital camera is needed. It is beneficial to include photos of floc structure and individual micro-organisms within a report to add to its credibility and professionalism. Becoming proficient at using the microscope and identifying filamentous bacteria is a learned skill that is developed over an extended period of time from hours of experience. For this reason, plant personnel often prefer to send samples out periodically to specialists that have experience with a wide variety of operations and routinely perform microscopic evaluations. The preferred frequency of microscopic evaluations is dependent upon the changes and stability of the plant and also the influent loading characteristics. Typically, every few sludge cycles is sufficient, but more frequent evaluations may be needed for specific plants. For plants that chlorinate the return activated sludge (RAS) line to control filamentous bacteria growth, it is important to determine the health of filamentous bacteria on a daily basis. Once 70%-80% of filaments show damaged cells or empty sheaths, it is recommended that chlorination be decreased or stopped (Richard, 2003). It is useful to know what “normal” is for a facility. Previous reports can also serve as beneficial troubleshooting guides to determine which direction certain characteristics may be heading. For example, if it is normal for a plant to have a common abundance of a certain filamentous organism and this organism has now reached “very common” abundance, a process change may be desired to help detect a problem before it develops.

The reverse India ink stain may be used at 10x objective to judge polysaccharide (slime) abundance. Often, training at 10x objective is sufficient for operational personnel. With minimal amounts of training, a

general idea of the problem can be determined which allows the operator to decide if someone with further experience needs to get involved. Higher life form organisms are beneficial from a toxicity standpoint (free swimming and stalked ciliates are most sensitive); they also provide a relative idea of the dispersed bacteria prey density. As there are less dispersed bacteria present, higher life form organisms become more efficient at capturing dispersed bacteria prey. It is important to note that the higher life form organism populations can shift rapidly, depending on plant conditions.

They should not be used in correlation to sludge age or in determining wasting rates. If a slug load enters a facility within a very brief period of time, the predominant higher life form organism may change (e.g., from stalked ciliates and rotifers to flagellates and amoeba). For this reason, using the 100x (oil) objective is necessary as filamentous bacteria, floc structure, and other characteristics change more slowly. In determining sludge quality at 10x objective, one of the most important aspects is the strength of the floc structure. continued overleaf...

characteristics, such as branching, motility, filament shape and location, presence of attached bacteria, presence of a sheath, presence of septa, filament width, filament length, filament cell shape and size, are needed for identification. Ultimately, filamentous bacteria identification becomes like “birdwatching” to the trained individual. After seeing a certain organism many times, most can be identified immediately. There is some subjectivity involved with this as organisms do not always fit neatly into different size and shape characteristics. Morphology may change depending on the type of substrate

as well as the growth rate of the organism. In industrial plants, it is common for a filament such as Thiothrix II to look slightly different than it may appear in a municipal plant. It is important to not “force fit” organisms and accept the fact that not every organism can be identified. It is important to look at the big picture. For example, if all the other indications present a “big picture” of septicity and the operator is unsure if the filament is type 0914 or type 0675, said organism is likely to be type 0914 because this grows due to organic acids and sulfide. Type 0675 grows at longer sludge ages and lower food to micro-organism ratios and is often found with filaments such as type 0041 and type 1851. Organism ranking is critical in determining the big picture. Common abundance is classified as 1 - 5 organisms per floc. Because one may be looking at the tail end of one condition and the beginning of another, it is important to not put much stock into an organism and its associated cause (s), unless that organism is ranked at common abundance or greater.

Filamentous bacteria identification Filamentous bacteria can be identified using table 2.18 of the 3rd Edition Manual on Cause and Control of Activated Sludge Bulking, Foaming, and Other Solids Separation Problems. This is entitled the Summary of Typical Morphological and Staining Characteristics of Filamentous Organisms Commonly Observed in Activated Sludge (Jenkins, 2004). Individual

Practical application Common short-term control strategies for filamentous bulking include return activated sludge chlorination, sludge juggling, coagulant/polymer addition, and change of process configuration, such as switching to step feed operation. Longterm control strategies involve identifying and eliminating the root cause of a problem. Every system is different and plant personnel should be involved in helping determine the best and most practical operational strategies.

We’re raising the Bar . . . Again! “Simulator” Experience added to Wastewater Courses

Teaming up with Canada’s leaders in operational simulations, Ontario based “Hydromantis”, WWOTC is now prepared for the inclusion of simulator experiences in many of our wastewater courses. Attendees will be provided with the very unique opportunity to experience real time operational demand, trouble shoot, solve problems, or simply experiment, all in a controlled classroom environment under the supervision of skilled instructors. Short of letting students play around with a real operational plant, this is BY FAR, the next best thing.

WWOTC announces 50% discount program for Post Secondary Environmental Studies Students

WWOTC believes that all “players” in the environmental education sector serve the same purpose – to develop operational knowledge, skills and capabilities. Rather than competing with post-secondary institutes, we complement each other for the bigger picture. BECAUSE of this, WWOTC is launching a new program to supplement the development of these full-time programs by extending significant discounts of up to 50% for any active full-time post-secondary student. Regardless of which chartered Canadian institution they are attending, if students can provide documentation reflecting an active status, or are within 6 months after the completion of their program, they will be eligible. This new initiative will escalate and reinforce the skills development of participating students and we hope that post-secondary institutes will share this information with their students. *Some limitations may apply based on regular student enrolment and capacity issues.

We’ve Partnered with Northern College

Ontario contractors who are contracted to maintain municipal watermains will be able to access critical employee training through a new joint Northern College/WWOTC collaboration. The program, Water Distribution Training for Contractor Company Labourers is a unique and comprehensive training opportunity designed to instruct individuals on the latest technologies, municipal guidelines, specifications, and best practices. This program is very timely given the expected degree of retiring long term experienced operators over the next 5 years and there is an increasing municipal trend towards sub contracting out the work to non-certified construction laborers. We want to provide contractor companies with an opportunity to raise their skill levels. Continuous diligence in safeguarding municipal water systems will ensure the highest quality drinking water is available to residents of Ontario.

Horizontal falling film evaporator improves efficiency of oil sands production By Yaniv Schmidt

A

lberta’s oil sands industry is facing a challenging time. The rapid drop in oil prices from $110/barrel to less than $40/barrel is putting a lot of stress on new developments and making it almost impossible to raise capital. Companies are looking for ways to make new projects viable at current oil prices, not an easy task after the previous project break even at $80/barrel. The market is looking for lower capital investment installation efforts and risks, and shorter project execution time. To make a steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) project more cost-effective and competitive in a low oil price environment, it is necessary to reduce capital investment in equipment and maintain maximum site operation availability in order to ensure a steady flow of income. Developing a new SAGD 10,000 barrels/day project is an approximately $500M - $1,000M high risk operation. The economics are significantly affected by the steam to oil ratio (SOR), as well as the selection and performance of the water treatment equipment. At typical SAGD sites, more than 97% of the produced water is recycled and reused for steam generation, a process mainly carried out by evaporators. Produced water evaporators are robust process equipment that distill the produced water to pure water, which can then be fed into steam generators. The evaporators are critical elements in the water treatment process, as well as major contributors to capital investment. The market is turning to modular and prefabricated solutions to reduce site construction costs and minimize project risks. Horizontal evaporators, which are making their first steps into the market, are completely prefabricated and can be easily transported to site in small modules. In order to reduce the operation risk, IDE offers a process demonstration system, which is designed for small scale process simulation and demonstration of produced water treatment. The unit has been installed at the Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF) facil-

ity in Edmonton. A 12-month testing program was completed, during which process condition optimization and chemicals usage were developed. The testing program was composed of several runs, each of which was executed continuously for 30 days. Different water sources from SAGD facilities were shipped to the testing site, and extensive analytical work was performed during each test run. Process and system description Produced water is fed to the system from a collection tank. It then flows to the degasifier to reduce the bicarbonate level. Downstream, feed water is mixed with brine from the evaporator sump and is divided into two streams. A small amount of the water flows as blow down to the brine tank. Most of the brine water is circulated and sprayed in the shell of the evaporator. The dropping water creates a horizontal falling film on the heat transfer tubes. Steam that is injected inside the tubes transfers heat to the brine, which evaporates. When the system operates with the compressor, compression adds ~2oC to the vapour and feeds this to the inner tube side. When the unit operates with external steam, the vapour flows to the condenser and continues to the distillate line. Steam, either from the compressor or from an ex-

ternal source, flows into the tubes, where it condenses and exits the tubes as distillate and is pumped into the distillate tank. The operator controls conditions such as pH, temperature, production, and chemical dosing rates. Chemicals are injected directly to the recirculation line. The trial demonstrates actual working conditions at the highest concentration and working temperature (worst case scenario) for brine concentration of the SAGD plant. This facility is used as a risk mitigation tool for new projects, allowing process optimization in a safe environment, instead of doing it on-site where costs can spiral. Modular horizontal evaporator IDE has developed a modular evaporator design which reduces installation costs. The modular horizontal evaporator is based on standard prefabricated modules that are easily transported and installed on site. Site installation includes positioning of the modules on piles, connection between them and lifting the evaporator vessel on top. The modules and the vessels are designed to fit standard shipping, making the supply chain very flexible. Manufacturing outside of Alberta lowers costs. The modular design can be suited to different evaporation capacities by adding more modules and more vessels, as

well as increasing the capacity of the vapour compressor. The modules are placed on piles driven into the muddy ground, which saves expensive concrete work. They are designed for fast connection, which shortens erection time from 4 - 6 months to 6 - 8 weeks. The cost saving on site erection is significant. However, for a project to be successful, daily operation and the oil production must be maintained at maximum. One of the problems facing SAGD operators is maintenance and

cleaning of the evaporator tubes, which results in expensive downtime. Removable tube bundle Evaporator availability is critical in SAGD operation. When the water train is down no steam is generated and oil production is stopped. The cleaning of evaporator tubes is done once or twice a year; it may take a whole week to complete, which is a significant downtime. The cleaning, which is done on site, is labour-intensive and involves the use of

hazardous chemicals. As part of the modular evaporator development, IDE offers removable tube bundle capabilities. During system turnaround, a fouled tube bundle can be removed from the evaporator shell and replaced with a spare clean bundle. The fouled tube is sent for offsite cleaning so no hazardous chemicals are handled on site, resulting in shorter and safer turnarounds on-site. Yaniv Schmidt is with IDE Technologies.

In October 2014, General Motors stopped accepting treated Flint River water for its engine plant over corrosion concerns due to the high chloride content. Flint switched its water source again, connecting back to Detroit on October 16, 2015, but the damage had been done. Virginia Tech researchers compared Detroit water with Flint River water and found on average, that “Flint River water leaches 19x more lead to the water than Detroit water.” Furthermore, the study found that the use of orthophosphate didn’t seem to reduce lead leaching due to the high levels of chloride. In October 2015, pediatrician Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha found the number of Flint children with elevated bloodlead levels had jumped from 2.1% to 4% in the period following the switch to Flint River water. In certain areas, Dr. Hanna-Attisha told the Detroit Free Press the numbers were worse, going from 2.5% to 6.3%. On December 14, 2015, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver declared a state of emergency and requested federal assistance to deal with the “manmade disaster” from switching to the Flint River. On December 29, 2015, the Flint Water Advisory Task Force, appointed by Michigan Governor Rick Synder, found that the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) was responsible for the tragedy in Flint. In a letter to Governor Synder, the task force found the MDEQ “failed in three fundamental ways:” 1. Regulatory failure: “In which technical compliance is considered sufficient to ensure safe drinking water in Michigan.” 2. Failure in substance and tone of MDEQ response to the public: In response to independent studies and tests, “the agency’s response was often one of aggressive dismissal, belittlement, and attempts to discredit these efforts and the individuals involved.” 3. Failure in MDEQ interpretation of www.esemag.com

the Lead and Copper Rule: “The federal Lead and Copper Rule calls for ‘optimized corrosion control treatment,’ which the MDEQ did not require in the switch to the Flint River.” The Flint water crisis has prompted the resignation of a number of public officials, including Howard Croft, Flint’s Director of Public Works on November 16, 2015; Dan Wyant, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Director on December 29, 2015; and Susan Hedman, head of the Midwest region of the U.S. EPA on January 21, 2016. American Water Works Association CEO David LaFrance said, in a statement on January 19, 2016 that “the AWWA is committed to helping water utilities, elected leaders and customers in applying these and other lessons from the crisis in Flint.” LeFrance also said that the estimated $1 trillion cost to repair and expand drinking water infrastructure in the U.S. over the next 25 years, “does not include the cost of removing lead service lines on private property.” Aid has poured into Flint as concerned citizens, politicians and even celebrities try to help. President Barack Obama pledged $80 million in infrastructure aid, largely aimed at repairing the damage done to Flint. “[Flint] is a reminder of why you can’t shortchange basic services that we provide to our people and that we, together, provide as a government to make sure that public health and safety is preserved,” said President Obama. According to the EPA, early test results in February 2016 showed lead-removal filters distributed to Flint households were “working as expected.” The EPA is monitoring homes where detected lead levels are above the filter rating level.

Water Treatment

Using carbon dioxide for enhanced coagulation By Andrew Kleisinger and M. Jason Stusick

H

istorically, water treatment systems have incorporated mineral acid feed systems for pH suppression. Their use, while effective when the process is properly controlled, presents numerous challenges to system operation. Challenges related to shipping, handling and storage of the large volumes of acid that are required are significant. Effective process control to ensure accurate dosing is critical. Overdosing of a strong acid can lead to overshooting pH targets, creating significant process related issues. As an alternative to acids, carbon dioxide (CO2) may be used for downward pH adjustment. When in solution, CO2 produces carbonic acid, which is less corrosive and hazardous than sulphuric or hydrochloric acid. The process Enhanced coagulation allows improved removal from source waters of natural organic matter (NOM), as measured by total organic carbon (TOC), by adjusting pH prior to the coagulation reaction. This is necessary to optimize the coagulation process, reduce residual aluminum when using aluminum-based coagulants, regulate disinfection reactions, and reduce the formation potential of trihalomethanes (THMs). In surface waters characterized by high pH and high concentrations of dissolved organic material, enhanced coagulation is implemented to destabilize the organic molecules. This enables them to flocculate and be removed during the filtration process. Acid is added to consume alkalinity and lower the pH of the raw water to a level at which the coagulant is most efficient at removing NOM. Coagulant is added to the pH adjusted process stream prior to rapid mixing. In applications where enhanced coagulation is practiced, alkalinity can be depleted and pH can be suppressed to levels below acceptable ranges. If water lacks alkalinity, it can be subject to large pH swings and become aggressive and corrosive. Aggressive potable water can cause

premature failure of mechanical equipment in the water treatment or distribution systems. Therefore, caustic is typically required after filtration to increase the pH and stabilize finished water. With source waters containing high alkalinity and pH, it can be difficult to use mineral acids in enhanced coagulation without exceeding the maximum usage limits (MUL) of the chemical. A benefit of CO2 is that it can effectively

adjust pH without consuming alkalinity. It can also be applied using dosage rates that typically do not exceed the MUL. Handling and safety Acid must be transported to the site, transferred to bulk storage tanks, and pumped to the point of injection. Spills or leaks can be hazardous to operators, as well as the public. As strong acids are continued overleaf...

Water Treatment corrosive and can be volatile, damage can occur to mechanical and electrical equipment from fumes and leaks. CO2 can be stored outside, eliminating the space requirements for storing acid within a facility and costly ventilation requirements. It is neither corrosive nor volatile and does not produce harmful fumes. Any leaks can be vented to the atmosphere without posing a significant risk to the public. Although it is not poisonous, it is an asphyxiant and can displace oxygen in confined areas. Therefore, a CO2 area monitor is recommended when installing a CO2 feed system. An additional advantage of using CO2 is that it is often produced as a byproduct from industrial facilities, such as fertilizer, gas, coal and ethanol plants, breweries, and distilleries. Its application in water treatment provides a sustainable use for a product that would otherwise be wasted to the environment. Carbon dioxide feed system design The main components of a CO2 feed system include: bulk chemical storage

tank, gas feed control panel, dissolution assembly (where required), injection equipment, and pH analyzers for process monitoring /control.

An additional advantage of using CO2 is that it is often produced as a byproduct from industrial facilities, such as fertilizer, gas, coal and ethanol plants, breweries, and distilleries. CO2 is most often stored in a liquid state in bulk storage vessels outside of the water treatment facility. Tanks range in size and come in different configurations, customized to specific site requirements. The bulk storage system

typically includes a vaporizer and refrigerator to maintain CO2 in its proper state for both storage and utilization. Where required, an element on the gas feed control panel is used to heat the gas as it is drawn from the tank. A gas feed control panel is required to feed CO2 to the process stream at a controlled rate. The panel consists of a gas flow measurement device, typically a thermal mass flow meter or Coriolis meter, a modulating flow control valve, gas temperature measurement device, CO2 area monitor, and isolation and pressure relief valves. CO2 dissolution in the process stream is required to ensure the gas becomes entrained to form carbonic acid. If sufficient mixing and length of pipe runs exist, the injection system can be as simple as injecting the gas directly into the process stream through a porous diffuser. In other cases, dissolution assemblies may be required. These may consist of a motive stream of raw or treated water, in which CO2 gas is dissolved to continued overleaf...

Water Treatment form a carbonic acid solution. The solution is then reinjected into the process stream. Dissolution assemblies may require a flow measurement device, an eductor to draw CO2 gas into the motive stream, a static mixer, and additional pumping. The selection of the appropriate injection equipment is a function of the desired CO2 gas utilization efficiency, equipment capital cost, and available plant footprint. In order to properly design the feed system, it is recommended that bench top testing be undertaken, to determine the range of CO2 feed rates required to adjust the pH to the desired level. In lieu of testing, water quality data and theoretical modeling software can be utilized to approximate the required feed rate. Process control Control for the CO2 feed system can be manual or automated. Manual process control may be limited to a manual flow control valve, rotameter, and a solenoid valve that is energized when

flow is observed in the process stream. Automated process control may be performed based on CO2 feed rate or pH set point control. For dosage based control, a programmable logic controller (PLC),

Carbon dioxide can be a viable alternative to acid for pH suppression in the enhanced coagulation process. process stream and gas flow meters with analog outputs, and gas modulating flow control valve are required. Based on a calculation programmed into the PLC and operator input for CO2 dosage rate (mg/L), the flow control valve modulates to set the gas feed rate. The operator can make adjustments to the dosage rate, based on the observed pH measurement taken from a point

downstream of injection. Process control can be further automated by adjusting the CO2 gas feed rate to meet a target pH level. In this case, the PLC utilizes feedback from a pH analyzer downstream of the CO2 injection point to control the position of the modulating gas flow control valve. The dosage rate is automatically adjusted until the pH reaches the target set point. Conclusions Carbon dioxide can be a viable alternative to acid for pH suppression in the enhanced coagulation process. A CO2 feed system can provide high-level process control while using a product that is safer and easier to handle. Many challenges posed by using mineral acids for pH suppression can be mitigated. There are negligible differences in overall capital and operational costs. Andrew Kleisinger, P.Eng., and M. Jason Stusick, P.Eng., are with MPE Engineering.

that in the past boardrooms were old boys networks and many of them had no policies concerning diversity or gender equality. “I think typically [men] are most comfortable working with people just like them… without recognizing the need for or the benefit of diversity. It’s kind of human nature; unless you’re specifically challenged to think about it and whether that challenge comes from government policies, regulators’ policies, or through inspired leadership.” Clare Beckton, founding executive director, Carleton University Centre for Women in Politics & Public Leadership, spoke about a study conducted by the bank Credit Suisse, on corporate gender diversity. The 2014 study found that more women in senior management positions improve companies’ financial performance and investor returns. Despite the benefits, inclusion of women is still growing slowly. According to the math by one of the speakers, John Koopman, Partner at Spencer Stuart, at the current rate, it is going to take about 10 years until there is gender parity on boards.

Engineered structural wire mesh is a vital component of accelerated precast construction By David Metcalfe

A

ccelerated precast construction of culverts and small bridges is the use of innovative scheduling, delivery, design, manufacturing and construction methods to reduce on-site construction time and costs, while improving safety and reducing impacts on road users. The growing specification of accelerated precast construction (APC) in Canada by transportation planners and designers focuses on identifying efficient ways to build transportation-related structures in a time of increased public demand for infrastructure rehabilitation, expansion and replacement, along with the ongoing demand for skilled labour. The inclusion of engineered structural mesh in precast concrete structural design may provide immediate relief to limited municipal and provincial infrastructure budgets, while contributing to the resiliency of modern highway systems. Precast reinforced concrete boxes, arches and other three-sided spans are used not only for culverts and small bridges, but also for drainage and retention/detention components of stormwater management plans. Box and pipe culverts are in fact underground bridge structures. Simultaneous construction activity is possible using precast boxes

and slabs for bridge deck applications. More than one structure on a project can be assembled at the same time, thereby speeding up project delivery. This lowers costs for local communities in several ways. Reduced project delivery time minimizes traffic delays, community disruption, and the land required for rights of way, temporary alignments and utility relocation. Shortened installation time re-

duces impacts on the environment and the possibility of weather-related delays. Accelerating the repetitive production of standard precast products with engineered structural wire mesh rather than with rebar contributes significantly to reduced project delivery time. Precast elements can be delivered to construction sites within schedules for stock piling or for just-in-time delivery.

Infrastructure Structural welded wire reinforcement (WWR) offers several other benefits over the use of traditional rebar: • WWR is made from higher yield strength steel, up to 550 MPa (80 Ksi) compared to regular 400 MPa (60 Ksi) rebar. • Steel content of a precast structure could be reduced by as much as 27%. • WWR is easier and faster to install, with reduced set-up time and smaller crews than for individual rebar placing and hand tying. Savings can be as much as 50% - 80%. • Smaller wire mats (more closely welded together and equally spaced) result in improved crack control in precast products. • WWR ensures proper positioning in mold forms with the added benefit of hassle-free inspections. • WWR can be bent and rolled to fit a wide range of precast and poured-in-place structures, including pipe and boxes. • Construction with mesh-reinforced products can be as much as 20% faster than projects that specify standard rebar reinforcement. • Using welded wire reinforcement makes the placing or assembly processes easier and thereby contributes to a safer workplace. There is a decrease in the risk of work-related accidents. • Deformed and welded bars create a solid anchor in concrete and there is no reinforcement shifting while concrete is being poured.

• WWR mats are generally available in widths up to 10 feet and lengths up to 39 feet. Much investment has been made into the technology of precast boxes for culverts in recent years. Not too long ago, the largest precast box was 3.75 m x 3.75 m. Some customers needed larger structures to accelerate construction schedules. Precasters responded with concrete boxes that are 6.25 m wide and 4.4 m high. Engineered structural wire mesh can accelerate installation time because less steel area is required for the same resistance. Full compliance with standards and codes is assured during installation. The health and safety of the travel-

ling public is of paramount interest to all involved in the construction of highway infrastructure. The speed of accelerated precast construction, facilitated by precast concrete elements produced with engineered structural wire mesh, not only ensures safe transportation systems, but ones that are resilient to natural and man-made disasters. Changing weather patterns are affecting the hydraulics of critical infrastructure systems, such as storm sewers, culverts and small bridges in many urban areas.

Monitoring Water level loggers typically incorporate built-in micro-processors, pressure sensors and battery power, inside a rugged enclosure designed for long-term underwater deployment. These enclosures can be set up and left unattended to record for months at a time, collecting water level data at user-set intervals and storing it digitally into the logger memory. By operating in a continuous monitoring mode, water level loggers eliminate many of the hassles of manual data collection and also facilitate monitoring of multiple locations. Additionally, water level loggers automate the process of archiving and reporting data. Hydrologists can simply offload logger data to a mobile device or computer and create detailed graphs or data files. The charts can then be printed for documentation purposes, while the electronic data can either be shared with other programs, or archived. While water level loggers have become the data collection instrument of choice for an increasing number of hydrologists, the myriad of product choices available can make it difficult to determine which product is right for any given application.

Key things to consider when choosing a water level logger By Stew Thompson

A

s the demand for water resources continues to grow, the ability to assess the impact of urban development and agriculture is more important than ever. To meet this growing demand,

70 | February 2016

water resource managers, engineers and hydrologists have a greater need to monitor groundwater and surface water levels with water level data loggers. This enables them to document baseline and changing water levels over time.

Barometric compensation There are two primary types of water level loggers – vented and non-vented. Vented loggers include a built-in vent tube that enables them to automatically

compensate for atmospheric pressure changes. By equalizing these changes on both sides of the pressure sensor, a welldesigned and maintained vented water level logger can provide high-accuracy water level data. Non-vented loggers do not use vent tubes, but can be barometrically

compensated using a barometric pressure logger and a simple software function to perform the mathematics. Barometric pressure values can also be obtained from weather stations within a 16 km radius. There is also a type of non-vented logger that incorporates both an in-water sensor and a barometric pressure sensor.

While vented loggers have the potential to provide the greatest accuracy, they also have a number of limitations that can result in bad data and/or data loss. These include: • They are bulkier than non-vented loggers, making them more difficult to transport and deploy. • Most require the use of desiccants for moisture protection. This increases the amount of maintenance required and therefore the total cost of ownership of the logger. Condensation buildup can lead to accuracy problems. • When monitoring water containing contaminants, vent tubes with contaminant-resistant material must be used. This adds to the cost of the logger, as does the decontamination process that is required before it can be redeployed. • Vented loggers lack flexibility when it comes to deployment at various depths. Cables cannot be lengthened without sending them back to the continued overleaf...

Monitoring supplier, and shortening requires delicately coiling the cable without creating any kinks. • If the end of the vented logger cable is inundated by rising water, all subsequent data are compromised due to unknown pressure compensation dynamics during the flood event. Non-vented loggers are more compact, require minimal maintenance,

can be easily deployed in wells of varying depths, and are not affected by flood water. New non-vented loggers incorporate two sensors, offering the additional advantage of providing water level data directly, with no need for post-processing. A water level logger’s sensor and analog-to-digital (ADC) converter both contribute to error. In fact the error from

the ADC can be just as significant as the sensor error. System level accuracy For non-vented loggers, system accuracy is the sum of the water level logger’s error, plus the barometric pressure logger’s error. The barometric pressure error is often overlooked, but needs to be included. On the other hand, vented water level loggers or sensors are measuring the differential pressure directly, so there is just the one sensor measurement error to include. Does the specified accuracy relate only to the logger’s sensor, or to the entire logger? You’ll want to confirm with the manufacturer that the specified accuracy refers to the entire measurement rather than just the sensor. For example, to realize a 0.01-foot water level resolution requires at least a 12-bit ADC with a 30 psi water level sensor. Likewise, you should make sure that the barometric logger’s accuracy specification includes all sources of error. Accuracy across the measurement range The accuracy that a water level logger can achieve at the high or low end of a given range may be much different from the accuracy at the middle of the range. For this reason, it is important to find out if the logger’s accuracy specification refers to a single point or the entire measurement range. Temperature variations Some water level loggers are not able to effectively compensate for temperature changes which cause incorrect pressure readings. For this reason, it is important to find out if error that results from temperature changes is included in the accuracy specification, or if there is a separate error term that must be added. Importance of drift The pressure sensors in water level loggers will drift over time. Whether or not you need to be concerned about drift depends on your application. Drift is important in cases when users need absolute pressure values, or when there are no recent reference level or depth measurements available. This may be the case if a water level logger is deployed for more than a year and no reference-level readings are taken during that deployment. Otherwise, drift is not a significant

Monitoring factor, since it will be offset by regular manual reference-level readings. It is also important to be sure to ask if the logger’s accuracy has been verified or measured against National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable standards, which verify accuracy. Software features Just as water level loggers can vary considerably from model to model, so too can the graphing and analysis software or app that accompanies them. It is a good idea to look for something that is highly intuitive so that the learning curve is minimal. You will also want to be able to quickly and easily perform tasks such as configuring loggers, and offloading, graphing and sharing data. Software features to consider depend on where it is being used. For field use, look for capabilities related to deploying loggers and offloading data. For software being used to analyse data in the office, look for more powerful analysis capabilities. If launching many loggers at once, look for software that allows configuration of all the logging parameters once and then uses those settings to configure all of the loggers for deployment. Not only does this save you time, it also helps to ensure that all loggers are configured the same. To convert a non-vented logger’s pressure readings to barometrically-corrected water level values, make sure the logger software has a barometric compensation utility. These tools typically allow you to enter reference level, water density and other values into a dialogue box, and then automatically perform the pressureto-water level conversion. When monitoring water levels at multiple sites, it is often advantageous to be able to view and analyze data from each water level logger on a single graph. Because water level data often needs to be incorporated into other software programs, such as spreadsheets or modeling programs, make sure data can be quickly and easily exported in a range of data formats. While the ability to save and recall projects may seem like a basic feature of any logger software package, many do not support this capability. Data analysis typically involves a number of steps, including merging multiple data files, converting pressure readings to water level units, and formatting charts. Thus, it is www.esemag.com

important that the logger’s software allows work to be saved for easy recall and additional data input. Connecting to the logger Data loggers with wireless connection to a mobile device offer you the convenience of not having to take a laptop into the field, while still being able to view data and change configuration settings in the field if needed. Wireless loggers with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology provide the additional benefit of not having to physically access the logger to push a button to activate communication, as was the case with earlier versions of Bluetooth. Loggers that rely on mechanical plugin connectors can be damaged by water in the field and cause failures. Water level loggers with an optical interface that is completely sealed within the housing eliminate the possibility of water-related damage and/or failures. For loggers with an optical interface, an optical base station is needed to connect them to a computer. The best option for connecting to the

computer is a direct USB interface. Some older loggers use serial communications to the logger, and use a serial-to-USB converter to allow them to be connected to USB. Because the loggers still are using serial communications internally, their data offload speeds are limited to the slower serial speeds. They require special drivers to be installed on the computer. Buying vs. renting In the past, the relatively high price of water level loggers has prevented many hydrologists from purchasing their own. While renting can be a convenient option for short-term deployment, the price of water level loggers has decreased to the point where purchasing is more costeffective for many applications.

Melaka gets tough on non revenue watermain loss By Brad Clarke

M

elaka is a relatively small state on the southwest side of the Malay Peninsula. Its capital, the City of Melaka, is so rich in history and beauty that it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With a population around 850,000, the Melaka Water Company Ltd. (SAMB) manages roughly 270,000 service connections for commercial and residential customers. In 2008, the City embarked on an aggressive plan to upgrade their water infrastructure in order to reduce non revenue water (NRW) loss. Leakage rates were at 33.9%, accounting for 152,000 cubic metres of water loss per day, i.e., 55.6 million cubic metres per year. The 4,800 km of ageing pipelines experienced some 3,000 pipe bursts a year. Each pipe burst compounded the water

loss problem, and maintenance teams were working constantly. It was clear the current situation needed to be fixed. However, SAMB’s long-term vision was equally important, so they implemented a massive overhaul that would not only fix the present problems, but provide a sustainable plan for population growth. Singer Valve Malaysia worked with the City’s NRW team to help select and give advice on a range of diaphragm operated automatic control valves to help implement their district metered area (DMA) plan. “Pipe bursts and leakage rates are directly affected by water pressure and selection of the necessary pilot operated control valves is a crucial part of any NRW plan,” said Anand Anandarajah, Director of Operations for Singer Valve

Malaysia “Using DMAs to reduce pressure is the most immediate and cost-effective approach to dealing with NRW losses.” After completing a water audit, it was determined that 168 DMAs needed to be established to manage the entire distribution system. These enabled the utility to measure overall flow in and out of a zone. With the help of calibrated meters, the team could then determine the zones that needed serious attention with infrastructure replacements. The second part was to manage the pressure in each zone to supply exactly the right amount that customers in each DMA required. For every one percent increase of pressure the leakage rate goes up by 1.15%, so maintaining the right pressure is crucial. It is also typical for demand to fluctuate between night and day, causing the pressure to fluctuate. A pressure reducing valve (PRV) is needed to accommodate this. SAMB put in a combination of 138 pressure reducing and altitude valves, that ranged in size from 100 mm to 200 mm, to provide a consistent flow in each DMA as required. The PRVs and their associated pilot system sense the downstream pressure through a connection at the valve outlet. When pressure changes, the downstream pressure set point remains constant. This controls the valve position by accurately controlling the chamber above the diaphragm. This ensures that the downstream pressure is maintained steady at the set point regardless of fluctuation in flow or upstream pressure. In numerous DMAs, where upstream pressures range between 3 to 4 Bar, the Singer 2 PR SC BT pressure reducing valve was used to reduce the required downstream pressure of 1.5 Bar in the day and 1 Bar at night. This was done by a simple switch between day and night, utilising a battery timer and two pressure set points. The battery timer, in conjunction with a latching solenoid, allows downstream pressure to be selected based on time requirements and utilization of two pressure reducing pilots. One controls night time pressure downstream of the valve (1 Bar), while the other controls day time pressure downstream of the valve (1.5 Bar). The units with the battery timers are typically used when more precise control is

required beyond that of a normal PRV. This can significantly reduce water loss by giving two pressure options instead of one. The units with the battery timers can also be retrofitted easily to an existing PRV, should requirements change. Melaka’s older style level valves had

www.esemag.com

also become inaccurate and allowed reservoirs to overflow, wasting water and increasing NRW. They were replaced with altitude valves that are used to control the maximum reservoir levels and accurately control draw down before re-filling. Levels are now accurately

controlled with minimal maintenance. The end result is that pressure leakage has been reduced from 33.9% to 21.4 %, which is a total savings of US$5,232,857 per year. Pipe bursts are down by 93% from 3000 to 200 a year. Reservoirs are maintaining their desired levels of water without overflowing, which will help delay water rationing in the dry season. Melaka can now provide more connections and, with a 36% increase in revenues, upgrades to infrastructure are a manageable part of operations. The utility also updated their geographic information system and network modeling for monitoring the flow of the entire distribution system at all times. Crews are now able to schedule proactive maintenance. These cost savings and results were recognized by two federal government awards, one for green technology in reducing NRW loss and the other for the improvements to the entire system.

Environmental Remediation

Orange peel waste helping to clean up mercury pollution

A

n inexpensive, non-toxic polymer that draws mercury out of water and soil has been developed by Dr. Justin Chalker from Flinders University in Australia. It is made from the industrial waste products sulfur and limonene. Citrus rinds, such as oranges and lemons, contain considerable amounts of limonene. Dr. Chalker says the new polymer is cheap to produce due to the global abundance of waste sulfur and limonene. That makes it affordable for use in large-scale environmental cleanups, to coat pipes carrying domestic water and wastewater, and even in removing mercury from large bodies of water. This has significant implications for human health as mercury exposure, whether through the skin or through ingestion, is proven to damage the central nervous system. It is particularly dangerous to pregnant women and children. “Mercury contamination plagues many areas of the world, affecting both food and water supplies and creating a serious need for an efficient and cost-effective method to trap it,” says Dr. Chalker. “Each year, some 60 to 70 million tonnes of waste sulfur are produced by the petroleum industry, and more than 70,000 tonnes of limonene by the citrus industry, mainly from orange peels. The chemical merger of these two industrial byproducts proved remarkably easy. The real surprise came when we studied its behaviour in metal binding. “Because the polymer has a high sulfur content, we anticipated it should have a high affinity for metals that bond to sulfur. This was indeed the case. We found it could remove more than 50% of the mercury from water after only a single treatment. “Preliminary studies indicate that the sulfur-limonene polysulphide (SLP) is not toxic. This is a critical finding if the polymer is to be used directly in natural ecosystems such as rivers, lakes and oceans. It can also be used as a mercury detector, because of the chemical reac-

tion which causes it to turn yellow. “To make the SLP polymer, we melt the sulfur, and add limonene to it and then can coat devices or make it into any shape we like,” said Dr. Chalker. By lining storage containers with SLP, Dr. Chalker and his colleagues have successfully removed mercury

from river and pond water, and soil. The material can reduce concentrations of mercury a thousand fold, from several parts per million down to several parts per billion. For more information, visit www.flinders.edu.au
