Environmental Products And Services

Coastal Zone Management Program For Barbados.
The three-year US $7.3 million Coastal Zone Management program focused on the south and west coast of Barbados, which had seen the bulk of tourism development efforts over the past two decades. The integrated management program recognized that coastal processes are poorly understood and through a variety of pilot environmental projects, addressed and studied the various fundamental shoreline issues and included sampling, water pollution, marine toxicology, shoreline erosion, lagoon flooding, public participation safety and comfort. The project culminated in a comprehensive coastal zone management plan which contained engineering solutions, water quality remediation, and socio-economic and environmental impact assessment.

Chemical Treatment And Filtration.
On completion of extensive treatability studies, a treatment plant is designed and constructed based on potassium permanganate oxidation and greensand filtration. The rated capacity of the plant is 16,400 m3/day (3.5 migd). The project is completed on a fast-track implementation schedule and involved the installation of raw water pumps, three greensand and anthracite pressure filters and backwash pumps and the construction of below grade concrete storage for treated water and backwash settling and recycling. The facility commenced operating in 1990 and is currently supplying peak demands with water that satisfies Ontario's health related and aesthetic drinking water objectives.

Conversion Of An Existing Lagoon System Into A Tertiary Treatment Plant.
Stringent effluent objectives for discharge to a dry stream required the implementation of tertiary treatment involving the construction of a multi-cell extended aeration plant ahead of the existing lagoon designed to accommodate seasonal flow fluctuations, the construction of a second lagoon cell, and the installation of tertiary filters and ultra-violet (UV) disinfection. The lagoons provide both effluent polishing and sludge storage in a process known as the 'Sutton' process developed as a means of upgrading lagoon systems to secondary treatment. The plant is rated at 1,000 m3/day (0.22 million gal./day) and commenced operation in 1994.

Environmental Master Planning Studies.
Delcan undertook environmental master planning studies for for Cabimas and Ciudad Ojeda; two cities with a combined population of 400,000 on the east coast of Lake Maracaibo, Venzeuala. The lake water was deteriorating and high nutrient loadings from the direct discharge of untreated wastewater was part of the cause. The planning studies included wastewater sampling and characterization, flow projections, selection of the preferred treatment process, the siting of the plants, definition of pumping requirements and the routing of new forcemains. This was followed by the detailed design of two wastewater treatment plants rated at 97,500 and 67,500 m3/d (21.5 and 15 mgd). Each SCADA controlled facility comprises three equally sized parallel process trains, two of which were constructed to meet initial flows. The treatment process includes mechanical screening, grit removal, aeration, secondary clarification, lagoon effluent polishing, aerobic sludge digestion and sludge drying beds. The aeration zones were configured for aerated mixed liquor recycle and return sludge to permit operation in a biological nutrient removal mode. Delcan also completed the detailed design for four pumping stations and approximately 20 kilometres of forcemain. Delcan's $36.5M contract included operator training and the procurement, shop testing and commissioning of all the equipment supplied from Canada through financing provided by EDC. The project also included operator training and equipment procurement for existing small plants and the restoration of 19 smaller pumping stations. Master planning studies for wastewater and stormwater systems were also undertaken for five smaller communities adjacent to Cabimas and Ciudad Ojeda. As well, Delcan managed the design, fabrication and procurement of a 50 m oceanographic research survey vessel with full instrumentation to monitor the receiving water quality.

Conventional Stormwater Retention Pond.
The construction of a conventional stormwater retention pond with use of ultra-violet (UV) for stormwater disinfection at the outlet to the receiving stream. The discharge of urban stormwater to the Rideau River was having a negative impact on recreational activities to the point where limits were being placed on further development. Delcan constructed a conventional stormwater retention pond with first use in Canada of ultra-violet (UV) for stormwater disinfection at the outlet to the receiving stream. Effluent quality criteria for suspended solids and coliforms required the construction of a two-basin retention pond with an active storage capacity of approximately 72,000 m3 and a concrete access road for periodic removal of sediment. Rainfall events are captured automatically through control of an overshot gate to allow batch settling and a controlled release at 0.5 m3/s (9.5 migd) through a parallel channel four-bank UV reactor. The batch cycle is controlled automatically including the collection of composite samples for monitoring water quality and treatment effectiveness. The work was preceded by an extensive pilot programme and environmental assessment studies. The project also included the construction of hydraulic structures for erosion protection, flood control and protection of fish habitat.
