Collection System Pump Station Improvements Total budgeting cost for improvements to all pump stations is $650,000 as shown in Table 2-2. It is recommended that the District establish priorities for this work and then budget to accomplish certain portions of the work each year until completed.
Influent Pump Station Current issues with the Influent Pump Station include: Pump ragging Lack of flow splitting controls Lack of sump mixing that results in different wastewater characteristics for Plants 1 and 2 Inability to take the pump station out of service for needed repairs Recommended improvements to the Influent Pump Station include: Structural rehabilitation Replacement of all pumps Piping modifications Installation of a sump mixer Improved flow splitting controls Re-activate Pump Station “W” to allow Influent PS to be taken out of service and to allow pumping raw sewage to emergency storage basin The total estimated capital cost for these improvements is about $1 million.
Headworks One at each plant with: Flow measurement flume Screen to remove rags, large solids Influent sampler (Plant 2 only) Screen capacity 6.2 Mgal/d, each No expansion needed Influent sampling improvements recommended
Existing Secondary Treatment Facilities Basin sizes good for 2.0 Mgal/d AAF (currently at 90 percent capacity) One additional brush rotor (or equivalent) recommended in each ditch for reliability Can take a clarifier out of service in dry weather Cannot take either ditch out of service
Existing Secondary Treatment Facilities Existing Secondary Treatment Facilities (con’t) Add one new ditch and one new clarifier at Plant 2 Add standby floating aerator in each existing ditch with future design flows, will be able to: Take any clarifier out of service at any time of the year Take any ditch out of service during dry weather flows
Secondary Treatment System Expansion Cost Estimate
Secondary Effluent Lift Station If no future filters, future peak flows can be accommodated by “over- speeding” existing pumps If filters are added, pump lift would increase, requiring new impellers, motors, VFDs Cost: $250,000
Tertiary Filtration May be needed for Improved UV disinfection Reclamation Future discharge requirements Provide flow equalization ahead of filters
UV Disinfection Three scenarios: Scenario 1: 23 MPN/100 mL without filters (existing conditions) Scenario 2: 23 MPN/100 mL with filters. Scenario 3: 2.2 MPN with filters (possible future requirement) Scenarios 1 and 3 require conversion of the existing UV3000 channel to UV3000Plus Capital cost = $1.2 million. Scenario 2 requires only flow splitting weir improvements On-site viral bioassay testing needed to confirm capacity
Salinity Reduction 1,000 µmhos/cm desired by state, but not currently required To meet 1,000 µmhos/cm: Microfiltration Reverse osmosis Brine concentration Concentrated brine disposal Capital cost = $15.7 million Annual cost = $2.12 million Improved source control recommended to reduce salinity
Emergency Storage Existing 5 Mgal earthen basin at Plant 1 not usable Improvements required include: Re-activate Pump Station “W” New Return pump station for draining basin Cost = $243,000
Wetlands Treatment Potential 2007 demonstration project to evaluate metals removal, mainly copper Wetlands demonstration removed 90 percent copper Alternative copper compliance methods eliminated the need for treatment Possible future potential for metals and refractory organics
Solids Handling Sludge lagoons are full or nearly full Belt press capacity limits use of solar dryers Future improvements: Phase 1 - 2 belt presses - 2 solar dryers - Cost = $4.65 million Phase 2 - 1 solar dryer - Cost = $2.03 million
SCADA System Existing system and previous recommendations reviewed Recommended improvements: Redundant master RTU at Plant 2 Improved features for monitoring and control sewage lift stations Begin long-term replacement of obsolete PLCs on a priority basis Total cost = $350,000
Summary of Improvements A list of all the recommended improvements developed in this Master Plan is presented in the handout Table 2-14. A site plan indicating where the future improvements could be located is shown is the handout Figure 20-1.
