2 Purpose To outline and provide information on the design, advantages and capabilities of the MMFFS TM 3000 system with respect to multiple support situations.
3 Presentation Outline Background Problem Regulatory Drivers Case Study: U.S. Army Forces Command MMFFS Advantages & Capabilities Treatment Technologies & Schematic Performance Data Summary
4 Background Military field operations require water for multiple needs Two current Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Units (ROWPU) in service: 3000 GPH and 600 GPH ROWPU Operation and maintenance procedures generate 4 types of wastewater: RO reject RO backwash ROM Cleaning Waste Chlorinated Product Water
5 3000 Gallon Per Hour Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit (ROWPU)
6 600 Gallon Per Hour Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit (ROWPU)
7 The Problem…... Training exercises produce waste materials. EPA regulations prohibit raw discharge of waste. Discharge regulations impact training and readiness Mission critical assets diverted for this purpose Affected budgets supporting involved logistics FORSCOM identified Permitting issues impacting training and readiness in 1996
10 Regulatory Drivers US EPA: –40 CFR 122-123 –Discharge permits are required –Environmentally Sensitive areas Individual States: –Different Interpretations –Effluent parameters & concentrations differ –Source Water Conditions
11 U.S. Army Forces Command Goals Education & Communication Between ROWPU Units and installations Between Installation permit writers and States Identify Regulatory Concerns Pursue permits where needed Pursue technology-equipment fix where needed
12 U.S. Army Forces Command MMFFS Program Work with installations and states to ensure ROWPU operations meet regulations Allow by the manual training thereby maintaining readiness Reduce operational costs and return equipment to its original purpose Implement or adapt commercially available technology and solutions MMFFS 3000 in transport configuration in an M105 1-1/2 ton Trailer.
13 FORSCOM Solution = MMFFS MMFFS meets all FORSCOM requirements for equipment fix. Designed for transport in M105 trailer Unit Weight: 2,400 lbs.. Footprint: 8L x 6 W x 5 H Set up in under 30 minutes One troop operable Configurable for two flow rates 120 GPM max - high flow path 66 GPM tortuous path Totally self-contained Designed for use with 3K ROWPU
14 MMFFS 3000 Advantages Proven treatment technologies –Aeration, Filtration, Adsorption, Oxidation/Reduction Adaptable to many situations Simple operation and maintenance Cost effective –Eliminates need to containerize/haul contaminated wastewater –Pays for itself in 1 year/200,000 gallons processed. * * U.S. Army Forces Command, 2000, MMFFS 3000 Payback Analysis, Contract # DAKF11-99-D-005, TO 022

20 MMFFS capabilities Pre and/or Post Treatment NBC decontamination Emergency response and management Disaster response and support personnel
21 ROWPU Pre-Post Treatment Effectively removes: –Suspended solids –BOD/COD –Heavy metals –Inorganic contaminants –Hydrocarbons (oil/grease) ROWPU Backwash water, Fort Stewart, GA. Pre - and post - MMFFS backwash water samples
22 NBC Decontamination Personnel & vehicle decon water All treatment media self-contained Minimal operator/personnel exposure
23 Emergency/Disaster Response Provide additional treatment capability for potable* or non- potable uses Fuel/Oil spill cleanup Adaptable to various contaminant types and concentrations * Requires RO or disinfecting following treatment
24 MMFFS 3K in NBC pre-treatment application to protect key ROWPU components
26 Summary MMFFS initially developed for U.S. Army Assists in environmental regulatory compliance -- a training facilitator Adaptable - Multiple uses Easy to use, proven technology Cost effective solution Currently in use by FORSCOM at 6 Installations
27 Conclusion MMFFS modular design and proven capabilities are an effective method of complying with wastewater discharge regulations while accomplishing a variety of real-world missions.
