Topics Apply Your Coating, Anytime, Anywhere? Brian Battle, bbattle@rentdh.com and Steve Green sgreen@rentdh.com with DeHumidification Technologies, LP In the Blasting and Coating industry we have seen some great advances in blast media, industrial equipment, and hightech coatings. Unfortunately with this technology can come additional cost, whether it’s recoating an existing tank or applying a coating to a new tank. One way of avoiding additional cost is controlling your environment, i.e. the humidity and temperature This is not only beneficial, but sometimes it’s necessary just to stay on time and under budget. Without the proper climate for a coating you can experience lengthy time delays, improper conditions during application, daily inspections (just to monitor the project), and long term effects that could cost more than twice as much with a failure. What we’re going to show you is the benefits of controlling your climate, how to control your climate, the equipment available in the industry, and proven cost analysis showing the value of this process. NACE 6A192 and many other technical papers recommend and give you a reference of what it can do for you. Now let’s learn what it takes to make sure your tank coating project is done right the first time. Extend the Service Life of Water Storage Tanks …Using the Revised AWWA D102 Standard Tony Ippoliti, tippoliti@sherwin.com and Brad Dahlgren, brad.d.dahlgren@sherwin.com with The Sherwin-Williams Company Water systems often need to recoat reservoirs or elevated storage tanks. By referring to two coating systems included in the revised AWWA D102 Standard “Coating Steel Water-Storage Tanks”, painting contractors and specifiers discover they can offer tank Owners the benefits of extended service life and lowered maintenance costs for their water storage tanks. This presentation will discuss the revised AWWA D102 Standard and two new interior and exterior coating systems. Picture images of tank-painting projects will be included in this PowerPoint presentation. The Author is a member of the AWWA D102 Revision Task Force.

Topic SCADA systems are one of a number of critical data systems in use in the modern water/wastewater utility. The impact of these systems extends well beyond the day to day monitoring and control of facilities. The data gathered is a critical business asset for a utility, and careful consideration needs to be given to how SCADA information is gathered, utilized, and interfaced with other critical utility information assets. A SCADA Master Plan, as part of an overall technology planning effort, will set the stage for the effective use of SCADA information. Traditionally a SCADA Master Plan has been viewed as a simply a collection of projects and budgets for the upgrade of individual SCADA systems. A comprehensive plan will build on these items, developing a comprehensive road map for how SCADA information is utilized within the overall utility enterprise. This presentation describes a structured approach for developing a comprehensive SCADA Master Plan for a Water/ Wastewater Utility as part of an overall technology planning effort.

Topics Chicago Water Conservation Efforts Michael Sturtevant, Chicago Department of Water Management, msturtevant@cityofchicago.org The Chicago Department of Water Management continues to make great strides in reducing water waste and promoting water conservation and protection of our water supply. Our efforts have produced significant environmental benefits, including reduction in both energy use and wastewater discharge, as well as preventing millions of gallons of water daily from leaving the Great Lakes watershed. From 1991 to 2011, the City of Chicago water usage declined by more than 37%, saving over 315 million gallons per day, which is directly attributable to the replacement of over 700 miles of water main. The Department has placed a high value on protecting our most treasured resource, Lake Michigan, and continues to act responsibly in managing it wisely. This presentation will discuss Chicago’s various conservation initiatives implemented such as water main replacement program, use of newer leak detection technologies, update on meter installation program and recent programs in caring for water resources as a whole Risk Based Asset Management for Water Distribution Systems Yakir J. Hasit, PhD, PE, yakir.hasit@ch2m.com & Susan Mckee, susan.mckee@ch2m.com - CH2M HILL For most water utilities, distribution systems represent their largest capital investments. Given the thousands of pipe assets in a system, the difficulty of estimating the condition of the pipes, and budget limitations, determining “which pipes to replace when” is a challenge for most utilities. This presentation describes how risk-based asset management can be used for making such decisions and covers the following areas of asset management: • Establish utility requirements • Establish levels of service • Review inventory, condition, maintenance data • Evaluate remaining service life, condition and likelihood of failure • Evaluate consequences of failure • Determine risk of failure • Evaluate data used for high risk assets and revise risk calculations, if necessary • Prioritize replacement and rehabilitation needs • Develop risk mitigation options such as capital projects, management and O&M measures This presentation also provides some case studies. Implementing and Managing a Large Water Utility’s Underground Corrosion Control Program Jeff Schramuk, CP Solutions, Inc., jeffs1167@comcast.net Public water facilities face a significant economic burden created by the deterioration of buried water infrastructure. As water systems are reaching their life expectancy, the need to rehabilitate or replace water mains is increasing. Cathodic protection of cast and ductile iron mains is a mitigative measure that can reduce premature breaks due to corrosion and extend the service life of both existing distribution water mains and new transmission mains. With the number and costs of water main breaks increasing coupled with inadequate funding for pipe replacements, the Des Moines Water Works has implemented three approaches to mitigating corrosion by using cathodic protection to reduce its water main breaks. DMWW’s Underground Corrosion Control Program has shown that the various cathodic protection installations can extend the service life of its water infrastructure at a cost that is much less than either pipe repairs or main replacement. Valves in the Distribution System Owen Keenan, M.E. Simpson Co., owen.keenan@mesimpson.com This presentation will review the importance of regular operation of valves, the various types of valves in a water distribution system, documenting the operation and condition of every valve operated, locating and mapping every valve, utilizing GPS, and the benefits to extending the useful life of all valves for a water utility. Water Conservation Programs John Dillon, City of Batavia, jdillon@cityofbatavia.net & Michael Ramsey, Village of Westmont, mramsey@westmont.il.gov Various water conservation programs and case studies will be discussed: toilet rebate programs, rain barrel programs and other customer incentive programs. The presentation will touch on Federal and State grant programs that are available to homeowners and municipalities. Also covered will be the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program, WaterSense – what it is, and what to look for when you are purchasing water fixtures. To wrap things up, John Dillon will discuss the ISAWWA Water Efficiency Committee’s Water Energy Nexus Survey results and how it helps the City of Batavia’s plan for the future. 28


SCADA, The Possibilities are Boundless Jeff Musinski, Village of Arlington Heights, jmusinski@vah.com The Village of Arlington Heights replaced our Aquatrol SCADA System with a new SCADA System in 2005. The system continues to grow both in capabilities and complexity. An initial approach with forward planning towards robustness of I/O and speed will reap rewards in the future when more functionality is required. Improving Taste & Odor, DBP’s, and Chlorine Residuals in Water Distribution Systems Mike Ricks, Water Solutions Unlimited, Inc., mricks@getwsu.com • To improve these issues you must start by understanding the TOC and natural ammonia in raw water for ground water systems, and assist in reducing raw TOC (algae)in surface water sources. • You need to also understand the Disinfection By-Product levels (TTHM’s & HAA5’s) leaving the treatment plant. • Biofilm is the main problem in the distribution system. WSU has been able to remove biofilm in the system and thus lower DBP’s, improve taste and odor, and increase chlorine residuals. • Several case studies of each of these areas will be discussed in detail. • Municipalities that purchase water from other utilities need to be aware of their Point of Entry (POE) DBP levels and be ready to make improvements by reducing biofilm in the system. ASCE Report Card for Drinking Water Infrastructure William J. Cussen, P.E., LEED AP, Haeger Engineering, LLC, bill-c@haegerengineering.com Nationally, drinking water infrastructure earned a grade of D- on the 2009 report card issued by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The nation’s drinking-water systems face staggering public investment needs over the next 20 years. Although America spends billions on infrastructure each year, drinking water systems face an annual shortfall of at least $11 billion in funding needed to replace aging facilities that are near the end of their useful life and to comply with existing and future federal water regulations. Of the nearly 53,000 community water systems, approximately 83% serve 3,300 or fewer people. These systems provide water to just 9% of the total U.S. population served by all community systems. In contrast, 8% of community water systems serve more than 10,000 people and provide water to 81% of the population served. In the rural areas (non-community based systems), over 83,351 small systems provide the needs for 500 or fewer people each. These smaller systems face huge financial, technological, and managerial challenges in meeting a growing number of federal drinking-water regulations. Implications for Illinois water distribution systems will be discussed. Design life of the distribution system is 60-95 years and pump stations is 60-70 years for concrete structures and 25 years for mechanical and electrical components. As these systems reach the end of their useful life, a range of financing mechanisms will be needed.

Advances in Water Pipeline Condition Assessment engineering power-hour webinar Date

Location

Time

Friday, February 17, 2012

10:00-11:00am CST Your Computer Topics The Challenge: Utilities across North America are faced with aging water infrastructure that, if not addressed, may result in major political, financial, and economic issues. Although many municipalities understand the predicament, in some cases water infrastructure assessment and renewal is secondary to a reactive “fix-it-when-it-breaks” approach, or is secondary to other, more pressing services and social issues. Moreover, public officials and utility managers have been skeptical about raising rates to levels necessary to sustain their infrastructure in fear of the potential economic impact to their customers. This quandary has resulted in uncertainty for Utilities about the current condition and future performance of their water system assets. Overcoming the Challenge: In order to avoid this adverse situation, Utilities are implementing asset management strategies, or a combination of common sense practices that provide the required level of service in a cost effective manner. Utilities are considering a ten-step strategy that begins with identifying, locating, and assessing the condition of the water infrastructure; proceeds with determining the appropriate levels of service and the criticality of the assets; and culminates with establishing a funding strategy. This strategy seeks to answer 5 basic questions: 1. What is the current state of the assets? 2. What is the required level of service? 3. What assets are critical to sustain performance? 4. What are the best O&M and Capital Improvement Program strategies? 5. What is the best funding strategy? The answers to these questions are found through field operations, desk-top analysis, or a combination of both. Goals of the Presentation: The goals of the presentation are: 1. Present the status of water system assets across the US based on the assessment of over 750,000 assets performed to date. 2. Review with the audience a ten-step program to asset management that empowers the utility with information and control of their assets. 3. Showcase two major east-coast cities that have taken the beginning steps of inventorying and assessing the condition of their water infrastructure. 4. Review the available technologies for locating, inventorying, inspecting, and assessing water system assets, including internal inspection (CCTV) of small and large, in-service water mains.

10:00-11:00am CST

Topics Water works control systems are increasingly communicating with business systems in order to more efficiently plan maintenance and schedule crews, purchase spare parts, and serve real-time information to large end users. These efficiencies can result in substantial savings for water utilities. Interconnection begs the question of security though, and many utilities are expressing serious concerns over conventional firewall-based security measures. Though they may look like hardware, firewalls are essentially software artifacts, with all the complexity, limitations and vulnerabilities of software. Many utilities are considering Unidirectional Security Gateways as an alternative. The gateways permit information to flow out of otherwise isolated networks, without allowing any information at all back into those networks. The gateways allow information about equipment usage, inventories, and service levels to be used profitably in business networks, without putting at risk the safety or availability of the control system components controlling critical physical processes. Join us to learn how Unidirectional Gateways work, and how they can be applied to secure water networks absolutely from attacks originating on external networks.

Solar Powered Water Mixing with Implications for Illinois engineering power-hour webinar Date

Location

Time

Friday, March 02, 2012

10:00-11:00am CST Your Computer Topics Solar powered water mixing is gaining greater usage in reservoirs, finished water tanks and wastewater treatment plants. In the last 20 years solar panels have increased in efficiency and utilize indirect light as well as direct light. Solar power is now utilized for a variety of water circulation applications. The emerging science of water circulation has been shown to provide numerous water quality benefits. Solar panels produce sufficient power to create an upwelling motion by a carefully designed impellor system. The result is an almost frictionless flow to move layers of water long distances as well as promoting vertical and horizontal circulation. As a result, solar technology meets mixing objectives in potable drinking water tanks, wastewater plants, and freshwater reservoirs. Energy requirements for solar water-mixing technology have been designed to run on low wattage solar energy. New advances in solar-powered water movement has been applied to a variety of unique applications in the last five years including blue-green algae reduction in lakes, municipal odor control, and highgrid aeration reduction in activated sludge. A recent qualitative assessment indicated that solar powered circulation (SPC) in selected wastewater test sites, were shown to augment the mixing and oxygenation required for digestion, while reducing aeration & electricity consumption, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions, sludge buildup, and odor events. Solar powered circulation transformed the bacterial community to those performing aerobic digestion in the upper water column and anaerobic digestion in the slurry and sludge. One of the fastest growing solar mixing applications is in potable water tanks. Solar powered water mixing eliminates summer stagnation, winter ice formation, and lowers chlorine by-product formation. Solar powered mixing is also being used in conjunction with air striping THMs from potable water reservoirs. Solar water mixing is effective as well as affordable and currently in several sites in Illinois. This discussion will also touch on an effective low energy grid type of mixer used in potable water tanks and waste water systems.

Essential Operations for a Reliable Water Distribution System engineering power-hour webinar Date

Time

Friday, May 04, 2012

Your Computer

10:00-11:00am CST

Topics Metering: In today’s economy, water utilities must improve accountability by maintaining water system performance and extend the useful life of their distribution system. Water utilities must know what their water losses are in order to budget, plan, and correct deficiencies in their distribution systems. The first step that a water utility should take to determine their water losses both apparent and real is to test the accuracy of their master meters. Once a water utility knows what is being delivered into their distribution system, meter records from their customers should be totaled and compared. As stated in AWWA’s M6 manual, “Typically, the largest 10 percent of the meters measure 40 to 60 percent of a system’s consumption.” This difference is the water utility’s totalized apparent and real losses. Apparent losses can be determined by testing. Meters that are suspected to be inaccurate should be tested over a range of flows in accordance to AWWA standards. It is clear that this represents loss revenue to the water utility and justifies the next essential operation to be taken. Leak Detection: Using data obtained from meter testing and other meter records, a leak survey should be done to determine leakage (real losses) using state of the art leak listening devices and leak correlation equipment as needed. A leak detection survey will conserve a precious resource, lower production costs for the water utility and lower the utility’s real losses. Once the leaks have been located and prioritized, repairs can be scheduled after the next essential operation is done. Valve Exercising: How can leaks be repaired if the shutdown cannot be done? The importance of the proper operation of valves in a water utility’s distribution system for regular and emergency operation can’t be overstated. Are the valves accessible? Are the valves exercised on a regular basis? How would you like to have to tell a hospital, a school, or a senior residence center that they will be without water for an undetermined period because a valve shutdown had to be extended? When all valves in the distribution system have been properly exercised, the next essential operation can be performed. Fire Hydrant Maintenance: The importance of hydrant maintenance is obvious. LIVES are saved by a water utility providing the required fire protection when an emergency arises. The proper operation and maintenance of EVERY hydrant in a water utility’s system is ESSENTIAL. There are other significant benefits to be gained by regular hydrant maintenance. ISO ratings are weighted heavily towards the water system and its fire hydrant operability. Hydrant Maintenance is a pro-active project that creates a healthy water system. Hydrants that do not drain properly in cold weather climates can freeze and become inoperable.

Your Computer

10:00-11:00am CST

Topic Mud valves have been used to drain tanks and basins in water and wastewater treatment plants for many years. However, since these valves are submerged, they are subject to corrosion. Stainless mud valves are proving to be a cost effective option, providing additional years of service life. Valve position indicators can be installed in a valve box for a buried valve, or also inside a treatment plant. They provide the operator visual indication of the valve’s position. Currently, many operators rely on “feel” to determine when to stop applying torque. Excessive torque can break a valve stem, requiring excavation or tank draining for a repair. Valve position indicators are also available with debris shields, to keep dirt out of the valve box and keeping the position indicator legible. The trend towards radio read meter systems has presented challenges for systems using meter pits. Since cast iron lids block radio signals, alternative materials are required. Many plastic lids allow radio signals to pass through, but lack the strength to withstand heavy loads. Trumbull Industries has developed a composite polymer lid that is “AMR friendly”, yet is capable of handling a 40,000 # traffic load. Presenter Sam H.
