2017 Sustainability/Collection Systems Conference

Sustain17_Agenda - Agenda for the Joint NEWEA Sustainability & Collection Systems Conference & Exhibit that was held on May 1, 2017 in Westborough, MA.

SustainCS17_InnovationIreland_MODwyerl - Improving Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) Management in Urban Wastewater Sewer Networks Through Technology Integration – Michael O’Dwyer, SwiftComply Michael will describe his experience leading Dublin's Fat, Oil and Grease Program, focusing on recent innovations

SustainCS17_PACP_LPerkins - PACP® Asset Management – Laurie Perkins, Wright-Pierce Since 2002, NASSCO has trained over 18,000 professionals in the Pipeline Assessment and Certification Program (PACP), a standardized data collection protocol for CCTV pipeline inspection. This presentation describes how PACP inspection results can be used to define risk in the development of an asset management plan for piping networks

SustainCS17_PredictiveModels_JZdrojewski - Taking it to the Next Level: Predictive Models Based on Over 500 Miles of Force Main Condition Assessment – Jeffrey Zdrojewski, Pure Technologies In this presentation we will discuss the components of a successful condition assessment program for forcemain pipelines based on over 500 miles of successful in-line inspections

SustainCS17_PumpingStation_TMcDonald - Pumping Station Consolidation and Trenchless Installation Case Study: New River Street Pump Station Project – Timothy McDonald, ARCADIS US, Inc. The New River Street Pump Station in Bridgeport, CT consolidated two existing pump stations, and utilized trenchless technology to avoid costly soil excavation and disposal costs associated with traditional open-cut installation

SustainCS17_ReviewingStormwater_WBates - Reviewing Stormwater Collection Projects through a Sustainability Lens – Wayne Bates and Joseph Persechino, Tighe & Bond This presentation will use the recent stormwater design projects to introduce a common definition of sustainability and an approach where the three responsibilities are identified and evaluated in a manner that can that can be used to evaluate similar projects through a sustainability lens.

SustainCS17_SustainableMaintenance_JBuckley - Sustainable Maintenance Practices – Joseph Buckley and Mark Hollis, City of Worcester, MA DPW Siphons help us to move wastewater under grade limiting obstacles such as other utilities, culverts, rivers, and underpasses while still manipulating gravity. If unable to take advantage of gravity; pumping may be the only option in some sewer applications. We have a siphon that crosses a highway, a large culvert, a river and a railroad location block, we are going to talk about what we learned form freeing the blockage and changes we have made as a result.

SustainCS17_TwoTrenchless_MTimberlake - Utilizing Two Trenchless Rehabilitation Technologies to Reduce Wet Weather Flows in the Bear Brook Watershed - Saco, ME Case Study – Matt Timberlake, Ted Berry Company, Inc. The project provides an excellent example of both interdepartmental cooperation by the Water Resource Recovery Department and the Public Works Department, coupled with Ted Berry’s expertise in trenchless technologies to save the community scarce rehabilitation money.

SustainCS17_WastewaterPumps_BDomkowski - Intelligent Wastewater Pumps—The Next Pump Industry Breakthrough – Bob Domkowski, Xylem
