Ensuring that wastewater from your facility meets or exceeds permit and regulatory limits can be very challenging. Regulatory limits for such chemicals as mercury and formaldehyde can be extremely low in some areas. For example, in the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority area (MWRA), mercury limits are set at four parts per billion. So how do you ensure that you are in compliance? Triumvirate Environmental's wastewater technicians and project managers specialize in locating sources of water contamination and eliminating the sources, or minimizing the impact these sources have on water quality. For wastes created during general production or manufacturing, Triumvirate Environmental will work with you to substitute less hazardous chemicals to use in the process or help you to select appropriate, end-of-line treatment technologies. Triumvirate Environmental has years of experience in helping to manage mercury remediation projects in particular. We identify and eliminate sources of mercury, clean and flush out pipes that may have collected mercury over the years, and, if necessary, install treatment systems to further reduce the levels of mercury in your wastewater.
Water treatment systems
With improvements in technology, we are now able to significantly reduce or eliminate metals and various other chemicals from your wastewater to improve high performance levels. Triumvirate Environmental works one-on-one with some of the leading manufacturers of these technologies and will research and purchase the best system for your facility.
Operation and maintenance
In addition to researching and installing water treatment systems, Triumvirate Environmental will also take on the responsibility of maintaining your system. Our certified technicians will do everything from changing filters to taking samples to ensuring the overall system operation. We will also provide 24-hour emergency response maintenance of your system.
Acid neutralization tanks
Facilities with laboratories and other processes often have wastewater with a low pH. Acidic wastewater may need to be run through an acid neutralization system in order to meet discharge requirements, including - but not limited to - pH levels and solids levels. Triumvirate Environmental can work with your facility to determine treatment technology options and assist in the installation and maintenance of a neutralization system. We can also facilitate your operations by scheduling and implementing an acid neutralization tank cleanout for your facility. Acid neutralization tanks, like most other tanks, need to be cleaned regularly. Whether acids are neutralized by limestone chips or by mild liquid bases, solids will get into the system and need to be removed. If not cleaned regularly, solids could cause a backup of the system or simply cause the system to not function properly. Also, if stone chips are used to neutralize the wastewater, the chips will need to be replaced routinely and may need to be disposed of as a hazardous waste. Our field technicians can check the integrity of your acid neutralization tank during routine cleaning. This ensures that your tank is free of cracks and other problems that may compromise its performance or result in a leak.
If you obtain water from the MWRA system, chances are that your facility's wastewater is governed by certain standards and permitting requirements. The MWRA sites molybdenum, mercury, copper, lead, and PCB's as some of the chemicals that are frequently found in levels exceeding limits. Sampling outflow periodically ensures that your facility is within the bounds of your permit. If you have received a Notice of Noncompliance and/or a Notice of Violation, it is required that you sample periodically. Triumvirate Environmental has certified MWRA samplers on staff who can help you meet your sampling responsibilities and assist you in determining the best course of action based on test results.
