“Wonderful Women of Wastewater” Forum to promote STEM to girls

Free Online Forum: Wonderful Women of Wastewater September 23rd., 2014 2pm – 4pm Eastern Time (3pm – 5pm Atlantic Time) Twelve Wonderful Women of WasteWater (Twitter #WWofWW) will gather online to talk directly to girls about what makes them passionate about their careers, how they got to their current positions, and what the future holds for a career in the water professions. ETC President, Kelly Galloway, P.Eng. is delighted to have been asked to participate in this event being organized by Wastewater Education 501(c)3, and held in conjunction with EPA Septic Smart Week, September 22-25, 2014. Why? According to the National Science Foundation, 66 percent of 4th grade girls say they like science and math, but only 18 percent of all US college engineering majors are female. The United States has fallen significantly behind the rest of the world when it comes to the STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Just as startling is that girls are even less involved in STEM majors and careers than their male counterparts, as women hold less than 25% of the country’s STEM jobs.

ETC solves sewage challenge for owner of Burnside Community Care Home

Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) was retained by Hartshire Holdings to design a state-of-the-art, cost effective and green onsite sewage system for the Burnside Community Care Home in Clyde River, PEI. The new Burnside Community Care Facilityin Clyde River, PEI The new 40 bed community care home features both single and double-bed rooms. The building has three levels, wheelchair accessible showers, dining room, community room, a chapel, beauty salon, activity room and two lounges. The beautifully landscaped grounds will feature a courtyard, screened-in deck, veranda, walking trail and a garden. Onsite Challenge However, being located in a rural area meant that the facility could not simply be connected to a city sewer system; it would need to have its own onsite sewage treatment system. Alan MacPhee was initially “hopeful but a little bit concerned about that”. Then he got some disappointing news – “The first engineering opinion we got was quite discouraging” says MacPhee. “We were told that the (soil) conditions were not suitable and that was the end of the story”. Concerned, but still hopeful, MacPhee wasn’t prepared yet to give up on his dream to build on the beautiful rural site. Soil conditions at the site consisted of

Redox or Not?

The dominant surficial geology in my region of Prince Edward Island, Canada is glacial till soil, rich in iron, so our mineral soil horizons are typically very reddish-brown in colour. This can make it hard to detect redoximorphic features in the soil profile. Where the soil is seasonally saturated, often all we get for redox are alternating duller and darker shades of red-brown. I am not a soil scientist, I am a civil engineer who practices in the area of on-site sewage treatment and disposal. So over the years, I have had to fill in the gaps in my soil science knowledge through independent study, short courses, and asking questions from soil science professionals when I have the opportunity. I thought I would reach out to some of my LinkedIn groups to see if you might be able to provide some insight on what I am seeing in the following photographs of a soil test pit I recently examined. Note: The photos are of the same area in the test pit. The only difference is that for one I had the flash on (truer to the natural colours) and for the other I did not.

PEI Department of Environment – (UPDATED) regulations regarding septic licensing

This is our understanding of the current policies regarding the various licenses issued by the PEI Dept. of Environment related to on-site sewage disposal. In summary, the Department issues site assesors licenses ($250), septic contractors licenses ($250) and septic installers licenses ($25). The septic contractors license ($250) is generally issued to the owner of a company. Only the contractor can select a system from the guideline document. He can not design a system. Only Engineers can design a system. To obtain a contractors license you must have a site assessors license (see below) and a pass mark on the Department’s contractor’s license exam. License is good for 2 years and is to be renewed on April 1 of the year it is due. It is also required to attend a meeting/seminar at least once in the two year period. An installers license ($25) is issued to an employee of the company (someone who has the knowledge of how to install a system but has not written an exam). Essentially he/she is just an employee of the company and is registered with the Department as an installer. He must also attend one of the PEI Department of Environment’s seminar/meetings once every

Alternative Sewers: A Good Option for Many Communities

Note: The following article was excerpted from Pipeline, published by National Small Flows Clearinghouse. For an example of how alternative sewers were used to provide a cost effective solution for one rural Maritime community, read ETC’s Project Profile of the award winning, Victoria Water and Wastewater Project. Those who are fortunate enough to own a home in a small or rural community probably appreciate certain aspects of country living. Being close to nature and far from the noise and complications of life in the city are among the popular reasons for choosing a home in a rural area. Although the advantages are many, rural life isn’t always simpler than big city life. One example is the problem of how best to collect, treat and dispose of wastewater from all the homes and businesses located in different parts of the community. A variety of factors help determine which wastewater technologies are best suited for a particular home or area. Often, communities will use a combination of different approaches for different circumstances to save money, control development, and protect public health and the environment. For example, in densely populated areas, like the business section of town, a community may find that a

Victoria Water & Wastewater Project – Village of Victoria, PE

3 Minute long video overview of the project: (Photo credit: Ron Garnett, AirScapes.ca) The Village of Victoria, PE is a quaint, rural village and picturesque tourist destination with many period buildings, artisans, restaurants and a bustling waterfront. Residential lots were subdivided in the mid 1800s and most are not large enough to accommodate modern septic systems. Sewage flows from many commercial establishments greatly exceeded the on-site sewage disposal capacity, requiring expensive pump-outs. New residential and commercial development was on hold until the Village solved its septic problems. Public health, the environment, and property values were threatened if a viable solution was not found. The Community of Victoria retained Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) to investigate conventional and alternative waste-water management options, and in 2005, to design and oversee the implementation of a new central sewage collection and treatment system. Project Objectives • To find a solution to the sanitation problems in the core area of the Village due to failing septic systems and expensive holding tanks. • To provide affordable (life cycle basis), sustainable and effective wastewater management which would allow the Community to grow and develop. • To eliminate the direct discharge to the harbour from the sewage system

The Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park – Hopewell Cape, NB

Hopewell_Rocks On the rugged coast of Southern New Brunswick overlooking the Bay of Fundy, the majestic Hopewell Rocks attract more than 200,000 visitors annually. They come to stand in awe of the towering rock formations created by the natural forces of erosion and the highest tides in the world. A new Tidal Exploration Centre had been built with an Interpretive Centre, a 120 seat full service restaurant and public washroom facilities for the over 4000 people per day who visit the site. However, when the new Centre opened in the Summer of 1998, an acceptable means of managing wastewater had still not been found and Park operators had to truck thousands of gallons of sewage off the site every day. Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) was retained to find an appropriate and affordable wastewater management solution that would be acceptable to Provincial regulators. Criteria for the on-site sewage system were as follows: Zero discharge of effluent to the Bay of Fundy; ● Minimize impact on the site, no additional tree clearing; ● Should not require highly skilled operators; ● Modular, easy to expand ETC recommended and designed a Recirculating Sand Filter (RSF) to treat the wastewater to advanced secondary levels.

Brudenell Fairway Chalets – Roseneath, PE

Brudenell-Fairway The Brudenell Fairway Chalets are located in Roseneath, Prince Edward Island. This rural development provides some of the most beautiful lodgings on PEI and required a practical, low maintenance and cost effective sewer servicing solution. The wastewater collection and treatment system is composed of three components: a septic tank effluent gravity (STEG) sewer, a mainline effluent pumping station and a pressurized HDPE leaching chamber disposal field. The most significant feature of the effluent sewer is that septic tanks provide primary treatment upstream of each connection. The effluent sewer was less expensive, easier to install and is less prone to infiltration than conventional sewers. The collection sewer drains into an effluent pumping station. Septic tank effluent is pressure dosed to an HDPE InfiltratorTM Leaching Chamber Disposal Field centrally located in a recreational area. The disposal field was designed as three separate zones. Each zone is dosed intermittently and sequentially using a mechanical distributing value.This innovative value also makes it easy to expand the disposal field in the future by installing additional zones.

Waste Management System – Cape Jourimain Nature Centre, Bayfield, NB

A new Provincial Visitor Information Centre, an Interpretive Centre and a Restaurant have been constructed at the 675 hectare Cape Jourimain National Wildlife Area in New Brunswick. The site is open to the roughly 1.5 million people who travel to Prince Edward Island via the Confederation Bridge each year. Sand dunes, saltwater marshes, beaches and forested uplands are part of this diverse and beautiful ecosystem which is on a major migratory flight path for hundreds of bird species. Site Challenges Unfortunately, the site is also characterized by a flat topography, dense clayey, glacial till soils, and a high groundwater table.  Conventional onsite sewage system approaches would have required either large scale tree clearing or a direct discharge; neither of which were suitable options for the client. Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) was assigned the challenge of designing and implementing an acceptable waste management strategy to protect this ecologically sensitive site. Waste Management Solution To significantly reduce the volume of sewage water to be managed, the Clivus Multrum™ composting system was selected to naturally treat all black toilet wastes. The high-strength, concentrated wastewater from the kitchen of the full service restaurant is treated to advanced secondary levels using the Canadian, Waterloo

York Point On-site Sewage Servicing Study – Town of Cornwall, PE

View the brochure version here. The Town of Cornwall, PEI had concluded that the cost to establish lift stations and force mains to service the southern portions of the Town was prohibitively high. As stated in their 1997 Official Plan: “The objective would be to maintain on-site sewage systems in the area for as long as possible, certainly beyond the period covered by this  plan”. However, due to problems with many old inappropriately sited septic systems, the Town Planning Department was reluctant to permit any new development to proceed. The Town retained Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) to carry out an On-site Sewage Treatment and Disposal Servicing Study of the York Pointarea and Parkview Subdivision. The study involved an examination of conventional and geographic information system (GIS) maps, GIS modelling, and a comprehensive field and laboratory testing program which assessed the subsurface soils, bedrock and groundwater conditions within the 96 hectare (240 acre) study area. Thematic maps were produced which graphically depicted the subsurface conditions for each parameter. The data collected during the field program was then analyzed in combination with existing provincial GIS database layers to determine an overall potential degree of limitation rating (none, slight, moderate, severe, unsuitable)

On-site Wastewater Viability Study – Town of Stratford, PE

View the brochure here. Considering its relatively short history, the Town of Stratford (Incorporated 1996) has been quick to tackle their environmental problems. This rapidly growing community had been experiencing problems with bacterial contamination of wells and failing septic systems.Consequently, groundwater quality, public health, and property values were being negatively impacted. The Town had already established several proactive policies to address these problems caused by small lot sizes, shallow fractured bedrock and slowly permeable, glacial till soil. However, the Town faced continuing pressure to extend the centrally serviced area. The Town of Stratford retained Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) to conduct an On-Site Wastewater Viability Study for the portion of the Town lying outside the centrally serviced area. Going Beyond the Usual Maps and Data ETC prepared a Community Profile, which incorporated the Town’s land use, population trends, sewers, on-site systems, and environmentally sensitive areas. This document provided background information on existing conditions in the Town relevant to the goal of developing a sustainable and cost effective plan for wastewater management. ETC collected, combined and analyzed data sets from a wide range of sources. Stratford had in-house GIS data on its land parcels. Other information such as wetlands, rivers and

Long Term Water & Wastewater Servicing Study – Community of North Shore, PE

View the brochure here. The Community of North Shore (Incorporated 1974) was struggling to deal with reports of growing water quality problems in the Stanhope Peninsula area caused by coliform and e-coli bacteria and salt water intrusion. There were many residents who believed that a central water system was urgently needed. However, there were at least as many who believed the problems to be few and far between. The Stanhope Peninsula had been the subject of previous engineering studies by others. However, in 2009, North Shore Council decided that a more comprehensive study of the water and wastewater needs of the whole community was required. Following a competitive RFP process, Engineering Technologies Canada Ltd. (ETC) was awarded the contract to conduct a Long -Term Water and Wastewater Servicing Study. Public Consultation Key ETC prepared a Community Profile, which provides background information on existing conditions relevant to the goal of developing a sustainable and cost effective plan for water and wastewater management within the Community. Public consultation and involvement was key throughout the process. Early on, ETC conducted a survey of all residents and property owners to gather information on individual septic systems and wells.
