Water Treatment

What is water treatment?

Water Treatment Process:

  • Chemical treatment

  • Physical treatment

    • Coagulation process

    • 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


Detection limits for inorganic contaminants

Detection Limits for Inorganic Contaminants


Coliform bacteria monitoring requirements

Coliform Bacteria Monitoring Requirements


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 ohio

Dayton, Ohio


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
