We’ll review your people, processes, and equipment to deliver a comprehensive Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Manual or streamline your regulatory reporting process so you can submit accurate and timely SPDES and DMR reports. We can also offer industrial pre-treatment assistance and advocate for permit sampling reduction and permit renewals.

Operator Training

Our skilled educators will develop a curriculum that improves the knowledgebase of your staff on water and wastewater treatment principles and process specific topics such as:

  • Activated Sludge – Nutrient Removal
  • Fixed-film Operations
  • Anerobic Digestion
  • Solids Dewatering
  • Macro and Micro-Nutrient Supplements

Monitoring & Analysis

With remote access or scheduled data deliveries, our experts will analyze trends and enhance your operational efficiency with recurring consultations and mentoring.  When parameters deviate from treatment process norms, we’ll recommend benchtop testing, prescribe a treatability plan, or collaborate with process engineer specialists so operations revert to applicable benchmarks.

Laboratory Assistance

We’ll evaluate your Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) procedures, conduct a complete laboratory audit and then collaborate with you to develop policies and protocols that will streamline and standardize your testing processes and guarantee accuracy.

Project Highlights

By leveraging their full-scope proficiencies, our team has delivered effective solutions to complex challenges for hundreds of Water & Water Reclamation clients in many industries and sectors like municipal, industrial, and food & beverage, landfill leachate, chemical, pharmaceutical and advanced technology.  Here are just a few examples:

US WaterPros Pharmaceutical Ingredient Production Treatment Plant solids settling equipment wastewater water reclamation
PHARMACEUTICAL INGREDIENT PRODUCTION PLANT OPTIMIZATION

Expert troubleshooting solved issues that prevented efficient solids settling and removal in a 1970’s era aerobic system. The developed process control strategy reduced effluent violations, predicted process upsets, and provided staff with troubleshooting guidance. Effective training and mentoring resulted in two site operators attaining their Wastewater Operator license.

US WaterPros O&M Plan Food Service Company biological treatment plant water reclamation
O&M PLAN FOR GLOBAL FOOD SERVICE COMPANY

Our experts prepared a comprehensive O&M Plan for a 2 MGD wastewater treatment plant consisting of rotary screen, pH adjustment, dissolved air flotation, and biological treatment with nitrogen removal (nitrification and denitrification). Documenting the entire treatment process, the plan comprised a multitude of documents including an O&M Manual, Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), Health & Safety Plan (HASP), Maintenance Plan, and Lock-Out / Tag-Out (LOTO) procedures.

US Water WaterPros Leachate Process Rootcause Process Control Strategy bio-polymer slide
LEACHATE TREATMENT UPSET ROOTCAUSE ANALYSIS AND PROCESS CONTROL STRATEGY

Landfill leachate treatment facility began experiencing extraordinary amounts of EPS production causing premature fouling of UF membranes. Analytical tests consisting of qPCR analysis and ATP determinations isolated the problem to a unique bacterial species. Our experts found that proper SRT and micro-nutrient control resolved the issue in short time and membrane performance recovered to as-new conditions.
