Hydraulic issues

  • Undersized wetland dosing pumps (LS-1)

    • Surges from the eastbound side

    • High rate of recirculation (~83%)

  • Solutions

    • Reduce recirculation rate

    • Addition of surge tank


Flow measurements

  • Weir / flume measurements are NOT accurate

    • Backup due to overcapacity of LS-1 and LS-4

    • Inadequate calibration

    • Inherent error due to low flows

  • Magnetic flow meters

    • More reliable

    • Erroneous spikes in the data

Wastewater test results 3/5/2004


Current status

  • Only receiving wastewater from west-bound side

  • No recirculation

  • Flow-through with no drain-and-fill

  • Biofield shut down till desired effluent quality is attained


To-do list

  • Installation of SCADA system

  • Surge tank addition

  • Installation of weather station

  • Re-calibration of weir and flume meters
