1 Spokane County Wastewater Toxics Monitoring – Year One April 24, 2013 | DRAFT

2 NPDES permit requirements Sampling locations & methods Results Next steps (draft) Draft Action submitted to Ecology on 4/15/2013 Agenda Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 2

3 Spokane Area – Sewer Service DowntownSpokane Spokane Valley North Spokane ▲N▲N City of Spokane Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility... serves North Spokane Spokane County Regional Water Reclamation Facility... serves Spokane Valley Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 3

4 S2 requires monitoring of Spokane County Regional Water Reclamation Facility (SCRWRF) influent and effluent NPDES Permit Special Conditions Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 4 Wastewater Influent Sampling ConstituentEPA MethodLocation DescriptionMinimum Sampling FrequencySample Type Total PCBs1668Each influent trunk lineBimonthly (6/year)24-hour time-weighted composite 2,3,7,8-TCDD1613Each influent trunk lineBimonthly (6/year)24-hour time-weighted composite PBDE1614Each influent trunk line1 per quarter24-hour time-weighted composite Wastewater Effluent Sampling ConstituentEPA MethodLocation DescriptionMinimum Sampling FrequencySample Type Total PCBs1668 After last treatment process 1 per quarter24-hour time-weighted composite 2,3,7,8-TCDD1613 After last treatment process 1 per quarter24-hour time-weighted composite PBDE1614 After last treatment process 1 per quarter24-hour time-weighted composite

5 S9 requires preparation of a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) S12 requires development of a plan with a goal of reducing to the maximum extent practicable PCB loads in the County’s wastewater collection system Influent sample results are needed to help identify PCB sources NPDES Special Permit Conditions (cont’d) Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 5

7 Sampling Location – Spokane Valley Interceptor (SVI) Pump Station Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 7

8 Sampling Location – North Valley Interceptor (NVI) Pump Station Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 8

9 Sampling Location – SCRWRF Effluent Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 9

10 Sampling Procedures Brown and Caldwell | DRAFT 10 Sampler Calibration Sampler Intake Automated Sampler Composite Sample Bottle Teflon Tubing

K flags indicate a peak was detected but did no meet qualification criteria. The result reported is the estimated maximum possible concentration J flags indicate that the sample concentration was lower than the lowest calibration equivalent
