Enjoy a much-needed apres-lunch coffee between 1:00 and 1:30pm in an insulated stainless steel travel mug that you can keep. Of course, we will be on hand to talk all things water engineering as well. See you there!
Be sure to check out T&H team members’ presentations:
Session 11 | Distribution & Storage | 9:00AM – 11:00AM
“From Simple Rehab to Potential Failure – A Tank Story”
KATHRYN CARREIRA, P.E., Project Engineer, Tata & Howard, Inc., Marlborough, MA
While preparing Westfield’s Provin Mountain Tank for rehabilitation, it was discovered the tank had potential for catastrophic failure. Nearby residents were warned of the potential threat and repair work was completed to extend the tank’s useful life by approximately 2 years. Hydraulic modeling was conducted to evaluate options for eliminating the Provin Mountain Tank or replacing it with a new tank of various sizes. It was recommended to replace the existing 5.0 mg tank with a new 2.0 mg tank.
Session 12 | Water Treatment III | 9:00AM – 11:00AM
“Iron and Manganese Removal Using Biological Pressure Filtration”
KAITLIN SLOWICK, Senior Project Designer, Tata & Howard, Inc., Marlborough, MA
The Town of Milford, MA recently completed the construction of a new 0.79 MGD water treatment plant at the Godfrey Brook well site. The project included biological pressure filtration and aeration to replace an existing water treatment plant which was shut down due to high levels of iron and manganese. This presentation will review the alternatives investigated and the challenges with the design.
Session 19 | Groundwater | 1:30PM – 3:30PM
“A PFAS Journey to Determine Effective Management and Treatment Options”
JUSTINE CARROLL, P.E., Vice President, Tata & Howard, Inc., Marlborough, MA
Shrewsbury has observed PFAS levels above the MCL at one of their well sites treated at their water treatment facility. The town has remained in compliance with the MCL by managing existing sources. A replacement well is being constructed that will increase the flow from the site with high PFAS, therefore, the town began a 14-month piloting program to determine the most effective media to reduce future PFAS levels. The pilot study was conducted using five different media.
