Case Study

Coal Yard Runoff Compliance Using Actiflo® Technology

Source: Veolia Water Technologies

Storm water runoff from a 37-acre coal storage yard utilized as part of daily operations at an industrial site in Southwestern Pennsylvania posed a problem when the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) updated the facility’s NPDES permit.

The new NPDES permit for the discharge contained limitations for total suspended solids, iron and manganese that the existing treatment system could not consistently achieve, along with a compliance deadline. To further complicate matters, the amount of space available for the installation of additional treatment system components was limited.
