  • 17,000,000gallons liquid stored
    • Many times this amount handled yearly
  • 6,700,000pounds of solids
  • Lots of change with business type, ownership, processes, etc
boots on the ground2
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
  • In 2012,improved secondary containment of 52,800 gallons of chemicals at 41 facilities
  • 6 minor chemical releases cleaned up
  • 23 commercial wastewater streams were eliminated or properly treated prior to disposal
comprehensive database
COMPREHENSIVE DATABASE
  • Record all aspects of a site: types and quantities of chemicals, types and methods of wastewater disposal, stormwater treatment and disposal
  • Attach photos, letters, plans, etc
  • Constantly update contacts: owner, manager, engineer
  • Add comments
  • Ability to sort and query
interagency coordination
INTERAGENCY COORDINATION
  • Bi-State Aquifer Protection Council
    • Meetings not regularly scheduled
  • Kootenai County – Building Permit Review, Uniform Land Use Code
  • CAMP Implementation Committee
  • IDWR – SIW MOU, compliance
  • DEQ – sampling, plan reviews, remediation
  • Cities and Sewer Districts– primarily wastewater issues

slide36

Spokane River • Riverfront Park

The Spokane River is spectacular, flowing 112 miles from Post Falls, Idaho to Lake Roosevelt (the upper Columbia River) in Washington. However, it also contains hazardous pollutants.

spokane river pollutants contaminants of concern coc
Spokane River Pollutants:Contaminants of Concern (COC)

Ecology River Assessment:

- fish monitoring studies 2005 (currently re-evaluating)

- river stormwater discharge sampling 2004 & 2007

  • PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) - transformers, pigments
        • 303(d) listed exceeding WQ criteria for PCBs & Dioxins
        • Fish consumption advisories
  • PBDEs (polybrominateddiphenylethers) - flame retardants in furniture, carpet, electronics, etc.
        • highest level measured in fish in the state
  • Dioxin/Furans – combustion byproducts
  • Metals – lead, cadmium, zinc

Spokane Valley – Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer

Sole source drinking water:

  • >500,000 people
  • 10 trillion gallons water

Susceptible to contamination:

  • Mostly unconfined
  • Highly permeable gravel deposits
  • Thin topsoil layers
  • Spokane River /Aquifer interchange

spokane lsc uwi goals strategy
Spokane LSC / UWI Goals & Strategy:

Goal: Protect River & Aquifer

Strategy:

  • Identify sources of pollution to:
    • storm drains (spills & discharges)
    • drywells (accumulated debris & discharges)
    • building sewer drains going to treatment plant
    • sampling storm drains, sewer systems →”tracing up the pipe”
  • Provide pollution prevention technical assistance to small businesses (LSC) to implement Best Management Practices (BMP’s) and ensure proper permits
  • Inspections of medium and Large quantity waste generators (UWI specialists)
lsc multi sector business visits in high priority stormwater basins
LSC Multi-sector Business Visits in High Priority Stormwater Basins

Sampling identified higher levels of storm water contaminants discharged to the Spokane River from:

  • Union Basin - green
  • Erie Basin - blue
  • CSO 34 - purple
lsc voluntary technical assistance visits
LSC Voluntary Technical Assistance Visits
  • Select CESQG business to visit (by geographical area, sector, complaints, etc.)
  • Initial contact visit→ Complete checklist or make follow-up appointment
  • Send report → requirements & recommendations
  • Follow-up visit to evaluate corrections
  • Possible referral to Ecology (enforcement), WWTP Pre-treatment, etc.
lsc multi waste stream assessments
LSC Multi-waste-stream Assessments

What wastes generated?

Where/how wastes stored & disposed?

  • Solid waste disposal– drain sludge, process wastes, universal wastes (batteries, bulbs), aerosol cans, etc.
  • Waste water disposal – to sewer from toilet, sink, floor drain. Can it be treated? Is it hazardous waste?
  • Street storm water catch basins & parking lot drywells - Outside waste storage covered? Vehicle washing? Other activities?
lsc technical assistance results
LSC Technical Assistance Results
  • 600+ site visits
  • High participation rate (95+%)
  • 75+ Spill kits distributed
  • Secondary containment added
  • Spill plans written/posted
  • Storage sheds installed or wastes moved indoors
  • Outdoor vehicle washing curtailed
  • Discharge of hazardous wastes to WWTP evaluated/curtailed (eg. dry cleaning separator water solvent)
  • UIC (drywells) registered & cleaned
  • Indoor oil-water separator drain sludge cleaned out
  • Universal wastes (lamps, batteries) recycled – not disposed in dumpster
