Treatment Plant and Lift Station: Operations & Maintenance

Contract Services

Remote access or site visits are available. Daily, weekly or monthly visits include pump testing, float testing and control testing in a variety of methods. Routine visits or remote monitoring can be the least costly method of maintaining a lift station and avoiding fines or penalties due to failure and overflow.

Pipe, Tank Relining

Relining piping to prevent Infiltration and Inflow are often cost preventative measures. Inflow & Infiltration studies are available. Relining with DEP approved materials in ways that are also cost efficient can help save money in the long run as well as help prevent pipe cave-ins, etc.

Applications:

  • Manholes
  • Lift Stations / Wet Wells
  • Concrete / Metal / Fiberglass Tanks
  • Pond Liners
  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Infrastructure
  • Water Treatment Plant Infrastructure (Meets ANSI 61-5 Standards)
  • Storm Water Infrastructure

Tank relining efforts with drinking water holding tanks can be costly and difficult. Temporary By-pass tanks are available along with the best in liner materials that have longevity to keep costs down.

Odor Control

In the wastewater industry, there are hundreds of different products, equipment packages and methods of odor control. Keeping odors to a minimum at collection stations, lift stations and treatment plants can be vital to keeping neighbors happy and meeting DEP requirements. Odor control can also be closely related to maintenance and repair costs.

As operators, ESI controls odors in wastewater systems (lift stations to effluent stations) often with added benefits of enhanced treatment processes and limited, or even lowered, wasting needs.

Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) Treatment Removal and Control

Understanding why fats, oils and grease can be a problem can be as vital and understanding the many alternatives.

Grease build up can accumulate inside a lift station affecting the Float Switch Balls or Transducers that control the operations of the sewage pumps.  When a lift stations fail, back-ups can occur, sewage spills can result around the station, and more resulting in expense clean ups, repairs and even fines. 

Fats, Oils and Grease can also easily hamper proper and effective sewage treatment at the wastewater treatment plant and is often the number one cause of treatment plant foaming and solids bulking and lowering Dissolved Oxygen.  FOG (can be costly to treat once it reaches the treatment plant.  Additional air and retention times are just the start if what is needed raising the cost of treating each gallon of sewage.

Fats, Oils and Grease literally stink. Their odor is usually obnoxious. 

FOG is a major contributor to low dissolved oxygen (D.O.) levels in collection systems, manholes and lift stations. As D.O. levels go down, anaerobic bacteria grow (just like in a septic tank and drainfield). The problem is the types of bacteria that grow in this environment release odorous and toxic gases. These gases also have detrimental effects on concrete and metal. Therefore equipment, lift station piping and the holding tank itself are subject to attack. As the levels of D.O. decrease, the populations of anaerobic bacteria increase, therefore so do the detrimental effects. Many municipalities have large maintenance budgets just for lift station and piping repairs.

ESI has a solution that can reduce FOG, raise Dissolved Oxygen and relieves odor problems which will help critical treatment and components along with other benefits.

Grease Removal and Control

CBOD Removal

Treating CBOD and TSS at wastewater treatment plants are two of the main objectives of a treatment plant. Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) are particularly difficult to treat due to the raised levels of CBOD and TSS inherent in their make-up. A grease trap can catch a majority of these “contaminants”, but often a grease trap is not enough and higher doses of FOG are sent to the local wastewater treatment plant.

Fines from local municipalities, or DEP, due to excessive CBOD or TSS in the wastewater stream delivered to the municipal wastewater plant, can be extremely costly and redundant. New treatments are available that avoid emulsifying Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) issues, but treat them. CBOD, TSS and turbidity reduction or removal is now possible with the right equipment and product. Most equipment for FOG reduction is bulky, costly and requires engineering design and permitting. ESI, in cooperation with manufacturing companies, has developed a method and product that may avoid all design costs and permitting fees. The product is also ADA approved, so environmental or health hazard issues are not a concern.

FDEP Consulting

Dealing with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP or DEP) can be easy or sometimes a strain. Finding solutions that not only meets DEP regulations and also budget concerns can be a mind-bending job at times.

ESI has a long history engaged in matters with DEP. We have worked hard to earn and gain a reputation of integrity and honesty with DEP as well as with our clients. We can find the most economical method that will not only endure, but plan for future source issues.

ESI specializes in assisting owners with DEP or health department consent orders.

Maintenance and repair are necessary for the proper operation and quality effluent of any treatment plant. It is our goal to keep our clientele happy by offering affordable as well as quality engineering design, operations and construction/ repair.

Experience is not only vital to designing a treatment facility and its many components, but it is also important to have someone knowledgeable and experienced install this equipment. Much of our work is repairing recent repairs completed by other contractors.

Over the years, ESI has developed their own standards to help facility owners get the most of their system, not only in performance, but also longevity. Doing it right the first time does matter.

Lift Station Visitation

Over the past 25 years, the ESI has operated and managed more than 250 municipal and commercial treatment plants. We currently provide communities, across the state of Florida and throughout the U.S., with a variety of water and wastewater services for their systems.

We have trained new operators and come up with innovative steps and procedures that help keep the smallest of package treatment plants to the largest municipal treatment plants working smoothly and in compliance with DEP regulations.

Clients who turn to us for contract operations of wastewater facilities benefit from the added value we bring when compared with other firms because of our solid engineering skills – from facilities planning and troubleshooting through design, construction, startup and operator training.

When facilities are challenged by inefficient operations or compliance issues, ESI engineers, operators and service personnel team up to evaluate operations from a multitude of perspectives. Evaluations can include a multitude of sources from performance and infrastructure conditions, to staff skill levels and even management. Then we identify how to maintain compliance and get the most out of a client’s facility by optimizing existing assets before considering costly capital investments. This expertise is available to clients as consulting services to train your personnel and/or available in contract operations and maintenance.

Preventative Maintenance Programs

Preventative Maintenance has become an industry unto itself in recent years. It has also come to encompass not only preventative maintenance on machinery, but in management, key personnel and paperwork as well and is also known as Best Management Practices, or BMPs.

Preventative Maintenance Programs

CBOD and Nitrate Removal and Consulting

What works for one treatment facility, may not work at another treatment facility.

Recently, with changes to DEP permitting regulations, some areas of Florida, wastewater effluent standards for treatment facilities have higher standards than others. The cost of complying with these new regulations can seem impossible and when solutions are found, they are often costly.

ESI operates facilities with some of the most stringent ground water regulations in the country and we employ existing methods and designs that can keep these facilities in compliance.

There are also some fairly inexpensive products available on the market that can increase effluent clarity, lower effluent results and maintain systems in compliance.

Call ESI for a consultation.
