1 Water Balance Study Water Treatment, Management and Conservation Solutions

2 Project Overview  Two Primary Objectives 1. Balance the Internal Water Usage with Purchased and Discharge Water Volumes. 2. Look for Opportunities To Reduce Water Usage and Conserve Utilities

3 Methodology 1. Introduction and Site Survey 2. Compile Existing Information; Meter Readings, Site Drawings, Usage Estimates, Etc. 3. Generate List of Water Users by Department 4. Gather Purchased Water Usage Data 5. Preliminary Balance, Data Verification and Revisions 6. Final Water Balance 7. Provide Recommendations For Water and Energy Conservation.

4 Resources Significant Information and Data are required to execute study  Introduction, Site Overview, Site Specific Details  Purchased & Discharge Water Data

5 Resources Departmental Interviews  HDM –  LDD –  HVAC –  Sytech –  Wastewater Treatment –  LDD Tech Center –  Emissions Solutions –

6 Resources Drawings;  RB-28 – Water Meters & Mains  RB-28 (TIFFY) – Combined Sewer  RB-30 – Plant 1 Storm Sewers  RB-31 – Sewers Surrounding Facility  RB-65 – Parking Plan with Gate #’s

7 Water Supply & Discharge  An Overview Of Water Sources and Discharge Points.

8 Water Sources  There are nine (9) water meters being monitored by the city. They are designated as follows: Meter #SizeLocationDescription Meter #16”Incoming City Water Meter #23”DEDUCT - Tower Makeup Water Meter #36” ADD BACK - Tower Blowdown & Filter Backwash Meter #44” ADD BACK - Tower Blowdown & Filter Backwash Meter #510”Incoming City Water Meter #64”Incoming City Water Meter #73”Incoming City Water - Irrigation Meter #82”Incoming City Water - Irrigation Meter #92”Incoming City Water - Irrigation

9 Discharge Locations  There are seven (8) discharge points. They are designated as follows: DescriptionDestinationMeteredArea Point ASanitary SewerNoBldg. 60 Basement Point BSanitary SewerYesBldg. 60 Basement Point CSanitary SewerYesBy Building 40 Point ISanitary SewerNoBuilding 73 Point GSanitary SewerNoBuilding 30 Unnamed 1Sanitary SewerNoRestrooms in Bldg. 96 Unnamed 2Sanitary SewerYesTower Blowdown Point WWTSanitary SewerYesWWT Plant (Pt.
