    • Sedimentation process
    • Filtration process
    • Disinfection process
    • Storage
ud project
UD Project
  • Wetland restoration/ Greywater treatment project
  • What is Greywater?
  • How does UD benefit from Greywater?
the ohio revised code and water treatment
The Ohio Revised Code and Water Treatment
  • Chapter 3745-7: Operator Certification
    • Examples:
      • 3745-7-03: Public water system classification and staffing requirements.
      • 3745-7-10: Operator Certification Advisory Council
  • Chapter 3745-9: Water Well Standards
    • Examples:
      • 3745-9-06: Well Construction
  • Chapter 3745-34: Underground Injection Control
    • Examples:
      • 3745-81-21: Coliform Monitoring requirements
      • 3745-81-23: Inorganic chemical monitoring requirements
  • Chapter 3745-81: Primary Drinking Water Rules
    • Examples:
      • 3745-81-14: Maximum level of microbiological contaminants
      • 3745-81-17: Water treatment techniques
environmental policy implementation
Environmental Policy Implementation
  • Water Quality Policies:
    • WQ-11-001: Fluoride levels competence
    • WQ-14-001: Total organic carbon monitoring and removal requirements.
  • Operating Systems Policy:
    • OPR-02-001: Chlorine monitoring and tracking for groundwater systems.
policy making and implementation
Policy Making and Implementation
  • The Environmental Protection Agency at the federal and state level are greatly involved in making policies.
  • Types of policy used in examples:
    • Regulations
      • Found in the Ohio Revised Code
    • EPA Policy
      • Interpretation of federal law for use by EPA employees
      • For use as guidelines
policy implementation
Policy Implementation
  • Ohio Revised Code Regulations
    • These regulations are implemented by state law.
    • These laws are then enforced by both the EPA and general state law enforcement.
  • EPA Policy
    • Water Quality Policies
      • Do not have the power of law.
      • For use as guidelines.
    • Operational Systems Policy
      • Implemented by federal or state law.
      • Implemented via interoffice exchange.
how and why
How and Why?
  • EPA Water Quality Policies
    • Guidelines for standardized testing for contaminates in the water
      • Ensures equal testing parameters statewide
    • Do not have the force of law
      • Guidelines for how to test for and track contaminates.
      • Precursor to a law or regulation

How and Why?

how and why1
How and Why? 
  • EPA Operating Systems Policy
    • Policies put together so that federal or state law can be implemented.
      • These serve as instructions for EPA employees to ensure that they are keeping records of data in the appropriate manner.
      • Ensure that the state remains under compliance with federal or state law.
how and why2
How and Why?
  • Ohio Revised Code Regulations
    • Federal and state congresses pass a law and then ask EPA for a policy so that the law can be implemented.
    • EPA is a regulatory agency that creates a policy or regulation that has authority based upon a law that has been passed by congress.
world information transfer
World Information Transfer
  • Discussed combating water contamination in rural African villages and at their 19th conference in 2010
  • nonprofit organization non-governmental organization that promotes environmental health and literacy
  • foster education and provide aid to schools, hospitals and orphanages in environmentally devastated areas
water innovations alliance
Water Innovations Alliance
  • Promote accelerated development adoption of water technologies and methodologies
  • Held a conference @ UD for the first time in 2010
  • focused on developing new funding, reducing regulatory barriers, increasing collaboration and raising awareness for cutting-edge water technologies and the problems they solve
national water research institute
National Water Research Institute
  • focuses on ensuring safe and reliable water sources
  • funds and supports research studies, water-related educational programs, and holds workshops on new water technologies
  • Uses support of other leading organizations in water industries and private foundations
dayton water treatment
Dayton Water Treatment
  • Water is supplied by wells in the Miami and Mad River Well Fields
  • Ottawa Water Treatment Plant and
  • Miami Water Treatment Plant
  • Each plant has a rated capacity of 96 million gallons per day
  • Lime (calcium oxide), fluoride and chlorine are used for water treatment
  • final step in the treatment process: Rapid sand filtration
cincinnati ohio
Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW)
greater cincinnati water works gcww
Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW)
  • Has been nationally recognized for it’s excellent drinking water
  • Most GCWW consumers receive water from the Miller plant
  • Miller plant uses Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) treatment
    • Allows for substantially less chlorine in the treatment process
granular activated carbon treatment
Granular Activated Carbon Treatment 
  • best way to remove organic materials from water
  • After settling and filtration, water at the Miller Plant is filtered through beds of GAC
  • Millions of pores in GAC capture (or "adsorb") the organic substances
  • Most spills in the Ohio River are organics
water quality issues in ohio
Water Quality Issues in Ohio
  • Environmental Protection Agency’s investigation of Clyde, Ohio
    • Cancer among children
    • Research results
      • Inconclusive as to what caused cancer
      • High levels of iron, sulfate and dissolved substances were naturally occurring in the aquifer
