How to Fix Wastewater Compliance Issues

meeting discharge requirements

At Evans Equipment & Environmental, we understand that the cost to operate a portable wash pad or permanent wash rack is constantly increasing due to permitting and monitoring requirements on wastewater discharges. With the increased enforcement of Federal regulations, violations of wastewater discharge could mean potential disaster for a company.

If you are having issues meeting discharge requirements with your existing system, how do you overcome these obstacles that could potentially add so much additional cost to the process?

The solution to meeting discharge requirements should start with a complete evaluation of your current system. Every situation is unique, and the requirements for every location vary, so make sure you are using a qualified design team that fully understands the obstacles you face and the ways to overcome them.

Repair

If you know what is causing the compliance issue, it can usually be resolved with repair to your current system. A qualified design team that understands your wastewater discharge requirements will evaluate your system to determine if any repairs are necessary to resolve any particular issues that directly affect your permit test results.

Customization

If repair is not an option or is not needed, your system could just be lacking additional components or features that could change your results.

Conversion

If your current system is a discharge system, another option to resolve your issues with meeting your discharge requirements is to simply convert to a closed-loop (recycle) wash system.  Instead of discharging the wash water you use, design your system to be capable of treating your wash water to allow for reuse.

Although you will experience some minor loss of water due to over-spray or evaporation, recycling your wash water will also decrease your overall water consumption, another benefit of the closed-loop system.  Ultimately, a recycle system eliminates the worry of obtaining a discharge permit or failing any permit requirements.
