Interlake Regional Water Board (Arsenic Removal)

The Challenge

The Interlake Regional Water Board was formed in 2007 to supply water to the Resort Village of Cochin and four Hamlets in the RM of Meota, located south of Cochin between Jackfish and Murray Lakes.  Two production wells were constructed in the Iffley Valley aquifer and a 200 GPM reverse osmosis water plant was constructed to supply water to approximately 500 users in the RM  and the village.  The RO plant produces high-quality water removing 99% of nearly all dissolved solids.

With a raw water arsenic level of 30-32 ug/l, it was anticipated that the RO plant would reduce the arsenic to below 10 ug/l. (The maximum allowable concentration regulated by the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency).  The RO system consistently produced water with an arsenic level of 17-18 ug/l, so an arsenic removal process was necessary to remove the arsenic from the Interlake treated water.

The Solution

Anderson Pump House was contacted to help find a solution to the arsenic problem for Interlake Water.  After some pilot testing and research, APH installed polishing filters using an activated alumina product called ActiGuard AAFS50.  Two 1600mm filters operating in series were required to handle the peak RO plant flow of 200 GPM.  The system was installed in 2010 and has produced water with arsenic levels very near 0.0 ug/l ever since.

The Benefits

The activated alumina polishing filters have proven to be a reliable, simple, effective, and easy to operate solution for arsenic removal for Interlake Water.  It appears that the filter media beds will operate for several years before replacement, resulting in very low operating costs for the utility.  The very low TDS level of the RO water is an excellent application for the ActiGuard AAFS50 media and the media meets the necessary environmental landfill requirements when it comes time for disposal. 

The water supply from Interlake is now safe and the 500 plus customers do not need to worry about trace levels of arsenic in their water supply.

 

Candle Lake Golf Resort Water Treatment Plant (Iron Filters)

The Challenge

Candle Lake Golf Resort located on the southern shore of Candle Lake constructed a new water reservoir and pumping station in 2005 to supply water to the resort complex, campsites and surrounding housing subdivision.  The ground water source was of exceptional quality and it was anticipated that the only treatment necessary would be chlorination.  A sequestering agent was added to the water supply to help keep the small amount of iron and manganese in solution keeping turbidity levels low enough to meet regulations.  With the seasonal nature of the water demand and periods of low consumption in the development phases of the resort complex, the sequestering did not work as well as anticipated.  This resulted in turbidity levels exceeding provincial regulations and Candle Lake Utility had to enhance their treatment process.

The Solution

Candle Lake Utilities Ltd. became the operator for the water system at Candle Lake Golf Resort.  Anderson Pump House was contacted by Candle Lake Utilities to resolve their water problem.  In collaboration with the Candle Lake Utilities, their consultant and APH, a manganese greensand filtration system was designed and installed in 2012.  Candle Lake Utilities now produces iron and manganese-free water and is able to meet provincial regulations for safe, clean, potable drinking water.

The Benefits

Candle Lake Utilities now produces quality water that meets provincial regulations.  Anderson Pump House was able to help the utility with an affordable, effective solution to enhance the existing water plant and resolve the turbidity issues at Candle Lake.


 

Atton's Lake Regional Park (Water Treatment Plant)

The Challenge

Atton’s Lake Regional Park, located on the south side of Atton’s Lake, 40 km west of the Battlefords, includes a collection of summer cottages, a golf course, a laundromat, a park booth, a concession, several public washrooms and trailer camping sites.  The park supplied water from a shallow well and sand points for over 30 years with no water treatment.  With the new water regulations that came into effect in the early 2000’s, the park needed to start treating its water supply.

All water sources contained iron, manganese, varying levels of total dissolved solids, TOC’s, ammonia and due to the shallow aquifer and nearby lake, the water sources were deemed to be GUDI (groundwater under the direct influence of surface water).  The local park board was faced with a challenge!

The Solution

Atton's Lake Water PlantAnderson Pump House Ltd., a long-term supplier to Atton’s Lake, was asked to develop a water treatment solution for the regional park.  After evaluating all of the water sources, conducting extensive site investigations and water testing, a new reverse osmosis water plant was proposed, designed and installed in collaboration with the regional park’s consultant.

The new water plant has been in operation since the spring of 2014.  It is always a challenge to design a system that operates seasonally, where one day a plant needs to produce 75,000 litres and the next day 2500 litres.

RO concentrate water (reject water) is always a concern when looking at a reverse osmosis water plant where there is no sewage collection system.  APH was able to divert this water into a nearby holding pond, which is used to supply irrigation water for the golf course.  It was a win-win situation for the water plant and the golf course, as the small volume of concentrate had virtually no effect on the irrigation water.Table Properties

The Benefits

The Atton’s Lake Regional Park water plant produces very high quality, clean, safe water.  It is easy to manage and operate, and all customers in the park enjoy the benefit of clean, safe water.

The RO treatment process results in high-quality water with very low chlorine demand resulting in disinfection stability in the operation of the plant.  Other water plant challenges associated with TOC’s and ammonia are eliminated with reverse osmosis.  The innovative handling of the RO reject water eliminates the need to haul this water away by truck, substantially lowering operating cost for the regional park.

RM of Battle River (Delmas Pumping System)

The Challenge

The Hamlet of Delmas, located 30 km west of the Battlefords, had operated an old style pumping system since the 1970’s.  The 3 HP centrifugal pumps, controlled by pressure switches, constantly started and stopped resulting in pump motor failures, pressure tank failures, and constant pressure fluctuations in the hamlet distribution system.  This system was similar to what was installed in many small communities in the 1960’s and the 1970’s.



Dalmas Pumps Before Repalcement

The Solution

In 2013, Anderson Pump House was contacted to recommend a new pumping system for Delmas.  A Grundfos Booster-Pac constant pressure pump package was installed in place of the old centrifugal pumps.  This new system has operated extremely well for the past 2 years.

The Benefits

The Grundfos Booster Pac pumping system now provides smooth constant pressure to the hamlet.  With a very sophisticated control package, the pump speed matches flow requirements.  Significant power savings are realized during periods of little or no flow.

Hillsvale Colony (Water Treatment Plant)

The Challenge

Hillsvale Colony located approximately 70 km west of North Battleford was faced with upgrading their water plant in order to meet all of the requirements of “The New Water Regulations” which are regulated by the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency.  They had limited space to work with to retrofit their existing system creating an interesting challenge.

The Solution

Anderson Pump House Ltd. was contacted by Hillsvale Colony to help solve their problem, in consultation with their consultant.   APH was instrumental in the design and engineering work to get a proposal submitted and the necessary approvals for the construction of the water plant upgrade.

The raw water contained high levels of total dissolved solids, some iron and manganese, as well as ammonia.  An RO treatment system was installed, and that provides high-quality water for the colony.

Shellbrook Golf Course (Pumping Station)

The Challenge

Shellbrook Golf Club operated a manual irrigation system for many years with two 10 HP single phase centrifugal pumps, with no automatic controls, supplying approximately 200 GPM.  The system operated at very low pressure resulting in ineffective, poor irrigation.  In 2010, Shellbrook installed a new automated irrigation system.  It was time to upgrade the pumping system.



Shellbrook Golf Course Before Work Began

The Solution

The Shellbrook golf club contacted Anderson Pump House Ltd. for a solution to their pumping needs.  APH proposed the option of using centrifugal pumps if the golf club was not going to install an intake well, and submersible pumps if an intake well was to be installed.

The club made the decision to install a new intake well.  APH designed and installed a new state of the art 500 GPM pumping system to meet the golf course requirements.

As with many rural locations, the system had to operate on single phase power, since three phase power was not readily available.  The new pump station included a 3 HP jockey pump and two 20 HP main irrigation pumps.  Variable frequency drives were used to control the pumps, as well as convert the single phase power source to three phase power needed for the larger pumps.  A self-cleaning screen was installed on the intake to the wet-well, keeping all water entering the irrigation system clean.

The Benefits

Since 2010, the pump station at Shellbrook golf course has operated very well, supplying the irrigation needs of the golf course.  The system provides clean water, and constant pressure, reducing maintenance in the irrigation system.  With a VFD control panel operating the pumps, not only is three phase power created from a single phase source, but energy savings are realized as well.  The controllers vary the pump speed to match the demand at any given time reducing the power consumption.  The new pumping system is very easy to operate, reduces maintenance on the golf course irrigation system, provides smooth, steady pressure for optimum sprinkler performance and reduces energy requirements.
