For the purpose of protecting the population from harmful factors, it is necessary to establish a sanitary protection zone (SPZ).
The function of the sanitary protection zone is to act as a barrier, providing a level of security (noise and scent pollution) for the population during the operation of the facility in normal mode.
Development of SPZ documentation is a compulsory condition for any object (including wastewater treatment plants) that can be a source of negative effects on the environment and human health.
The SPZ can be reduced if there is proof of a stable level of anthropogenic impact on the border of the SPZ and beyond The impact must be below the regulatory requirements and measurements must confirm low noise levels and other factors for the surrounding area.
The reduction of the SPZ is of particular relevance when a residential area is near the existing treatment facilities.
In Bioks, the technology reduces noise level and ensures the absence of smell. This makes it possible to minimize the sanitary protection zone and thus allow a more efficient use of land.
Bioxoca offers its services for evaluating the feasibility of reducing sanitary zones in accordance with statutory requirements.
Even cleaned effluents are a potentially dangerous source of contamination. To discharge the treated wastewater into surface water bodies, it is necessary to prove their environmental and sanitary-epidemiological safety. Therefore, a project of permissible release standards for discharges of substances and microorganisms into water bodies (the draft PRS) is required. The PRS project is developed to maintain water quality standards in the destination water body. It is necessary to consider what the targeted use of the reservoir is and associated water protection restrictions.
The process is divided into several stages.
The first stage is development of the PRS, which includes:
- Inventory of all available sources of discharge;
- Identification of means of effluent disposal from the area;
- List of stormwater systems and water treatment facilities;
- Confirm compliance with regulations;
- Identification of water security restrictions in the area, such as sanitary protection zones of drinking water sources and water protection zones of water bodies.
The PRS project must be made in accordance with the regulations of all relevant government institutions.
At the second stage the PRS project is approved by regulatory agencies.
The third stage- getting the permission from the Environmental Protection Agency for the discharge of pollutants into surface water.
Bioxica’s experts will develop the PRS document and obtain permission for the discharge of water into the environment.
The design of modern wastewater treatment plants includes the selection of the equipment, which should provide effective treatment of wastewater according to regulatory standards.
Bioxoca provides an individualized approach to each objective when designing treatment facilities. Using specific demands for each piece of equipment, we take into account the efficiency, reliability, durability, workability, and quality-price ratio.
Based on extensive experience gained in the construction of wastewater treatment plants, Bioxoca selects the optimal combination of equipment.
In developing design solutions, engineers must plan treatment plants that are reliable, have high performance, long life, economically suitable location, leading technology, and conform to regulations.
For these purposes, a rationale is carried out before the adoption of a design solution. To prepare the rationale, a site survey is conducted. Also, wastewater tests are taken; next, places for possible discharge of treated wastewater are explored.
Bioxoca has extensive experience in the design of treatment facilities. Our qualified specialists, perform analysis, calculations, and feasibility studies for the proposed project.
