  • Saving Texas’ Water Through Smart Energy Choices In 2016
    Power Plan the first ever cap on carbon emissions from the power sector It may not be intuitive to think about water when talking about carbon pollution and energy but it should be Coal natural gas and nuclear power consume 580 gallons 310 gallons and 460 gallons of water to create one megawatt hour of energy respectively or the equivalent of powering 330 homes for an hour That s why the Clean Power Plan could be one of Texas most effective water planning tools By prioritizing clean energy the plan encourages the use of less water intensive energy resources For example negligible quantities of water are required to generate power from wind and solar PV and virtually no water is required for energy efficiency These same resources also generate negligible carbon emissions and would therefore be a sensible solution for meeting the Clean Power Plan s goals Safeguarding energy and water reliability means ensuring Texas continues to grow and draw businesses to our state and the Clean Power Plan will help us get there Compared to the state s 2012 power generation mix the baseline year used to create the Clean Power Plan s targets meeting the plan s goals would save 124 000 acre feet of water in 2030 the year in which the standards will fully be in effect roughly the equivalent of Caddo Lake in East Texas Those are savings worth pursuing More good news Drought prone western states are standing up for clean energy For inspiration on embracing renewable energy Texas could look for examples in other drought prone Western states and even to cities within the Lone Star State Georgetown Texas If state policymakers and regulators in our capital just looked a little north they d see the example set by the city of Georgetown in Williamson County arguably the most conservative county in the Austin metro area In 2015 Georgetown s mayor set in motion a plan that would take the city to 100 percent renewable energy by 2017 The move was spurred mainly by economic considerations but there will be water benefits as well particularly worth noting since the Austin area was one of the last to recover from the state s multi year drought Las Vegas Nevada A recently proposed deal would make Las Vegas one of the largest cities in the U S to go 100 percent renewable In a city known for energy sucking 24 hour casinos solar energy and energy efficiency programs could mean huge water savings especially in the desert Unfortunately just like in Texas state officials are working to undermine the city s efforts by challenging energy efficiency programs and making the market harder for solar companies As many Western cities far outstrip their state regulators in terms of progressive clean energy policies backward steps from state leadership are becoming an unfortunate trend The news is especially discouraging considering the chronic droughts in states like Nevada San Diego California Even in a state with advanced clean energy

  • Texas Homeowners Beware 5 Things To Know About Groundwater Conservation Districts
    re not required to find out Sellers are protected from having to do anything extra unless they know whether the property is in a GCD Then they must disclose and when they do this is a welcome protection for the buyer and it s also good for the GCD raising awareness about local groundwater development and protection But as always if the seller doesn t know something buyer beware By not investigating this for yourself you could be in for an unwelcome surprise after you close on a property Five things to know before you purchase If you intend to drill a water well on your newly acquired land and if the property is in a GCD there may be requirements or restrictions to learn ahead of time These rules can affect what you are able to do with the land so it is important to understand them There may be minimum well spacing requirements Do you have enough property to drill a well Has the area hit its wells per section limit If you re buying an existing well are you in a good position because no more wells can be drilled around you Every district has different rules so it pays to check Some districts have grandfathered the water wells that were drilled before the district was formed and may permit new ones with a lower pump rate in that case you may want a property with a reliable well already on it Even then your historical well may be limited to its historic use so you need to investigate past use If your property isn t covered by a GCD you could find yourself in a situation like the Hays County folks last year who narrowly avoided massive and unfettered extraction and export of their groundwater to

  • Climate Change Ramifications For The Water Industry
    and supply chain risk and could even become an existential threat to cities and communities So today many water utilities are facing a perfect storm They are facing the basic challenges of running an under funded mission critical service in the face of deteriorating infrastructure regulatory pressure and changing consumer habits and expectations Add to this the need to reinvest for resilience to new extreme weather risks and you can see why our country s utility operators deserve an award for heroism Many are critical of timelines tied to climate change impact How do you inspire urgency when the exact nature of the threat is uncertain We need to connect the dots for people We already have a crisis even without more climate change California lost billions of dollars in revenue due to drought businesses and insurers are losing billions of dollars due to floods In the base case growth in our economy our population and our cities will mean that these risk exposures will grow Scientists are telling us that it s probable these challenges will intensify unless we take action today It s just smart risk management to realize that early investment in climate mitigation and resilience water technologies will save you money over the long term In general who is best suited or most likely to approve install resiliency initiatives in a municipal setting No single person organization or central planner can build resilience alone In a municipal setting citizens businesses and community groups know where the vulnerabilities are They need to be engaged in participatory planning processes to identify the most pressing challenges and assess alternative solutions I recently heard of some great work by organizations like PUSH Buffalo in New York and the Cooper s Ferry Partnership in New Jersey where community groups and governments are working together in this way At the same time municipal agencies need to collaborate to solve problems jointly so that public services such as water power emergency response and transportation complement each other s efforts The Rockefeller Foundation s 100 Resilient Cities initiative is funding Chief Resilience Officer roles in cities around the world to catalyze this type of on the ground coordination What are some specific examples of infrastructure improvements that combat drought or floods It s going to take all kinds of interventions large and small gray and green to make our urban infrastructure fit for purpose in a more variable climate With respect to drought infrastructure water reuse is a key technology that is about to take flight In Singapore and Israel it has played a crucial role in creating water security over the past several decades and the underlying technologies are proven and increasingly accepted by consumers On the flood side we ll see many different technology categories take root Green infrastructure has an important role to play in reducing destructive urban stormwater flows Many cities will also want to consider modernizing and expanding drainage infrastructure such as pumps and in some cases repurposing other

  • Sewer Mining An Unconventional Solution To Water Scarcity
    The Numbers Case Study The stars do or at least can align quite often for sewer mining particularly in the U S West where population growth and energy demands continue to boom even in the midst of historic drought In one example a private developer of residential high rise condominiums with 60 000 residents was spending 1 66 million per year for 300 000 GPD of potable water used solely for cooling tower make up water at the developer s 40 MW power plant A number of options were considered to replace the expensive municipal water They included River water which would require treatment for high salinity and high suspended solids as well as transport to the power plant Well water which would require the developer to invest in well drilling and development Rain water which is unreliable and requires large tanks for storage Treated wastewater which would require long delivery pipes from the centralized WWTP Raw sewage i e sewer mining which would require further treatment and has a municipal limitation of 2 000 mg L TDS for byproduct returned to the sewer After an initial assessment the options were reduced to well water and sewer mining The former in this case would require reverse osmosis RO treatment to reduce TDS while the latter will always require biological treatment to break down the organics inherent in municipal wastewater To acquire 300 000 GPD of cooling tower make up water the RO system would demand 400 000 GPD of feed resulting in 100 000 GPD of brine reject at 44 000 mg L TDS brine that could not legally be discharged to the river or sewer nor deep well injected Sewer mining became the sensible option utilizing a membrane bioreactor MBR for raw sewage treatment combined with RO to achieve cooling tower TDS requirements of 250 mg L with brine reject below 2 000 mg L to comply with sewer discharge regulations The solution is shown graphically below with an image supplied by RWL Water which managed the project The result for this developer was a savings of 1 111 500 per year as the cost of sewer mining came in at 548 500 compared to 1 660 000 for purchasing potable water Here s the breakdown of system stats and combined annual expenses Total plant capacity 300 000 GPD Treated sewage required 352 940 GPD RO brine concentrate 52 940 GPD RO brine concentrate characteristics 2 000 mg L TDS Total project cost 4 0 million MBR Sewage Treatment Plant Capacity raw sewage 357 000 gallons Electrical consumption 2 000 kWh day RO Plant RO Capacity 2 x 150 000 GPD Recovery 85 Electrical Consumption 682 kWh day Annual Costs Electricity 0 09 kWh 88 104 Chemicals and part time labor 75 000 Equipment lease 5 APR over 15 years 385 396 Total annual cost 548 500 At Work Elsewhere MBR is a logical choice for many potential sewer mining applications because of its small footprint compared to conventional

  • New PA Law Puts Mine Water to Work
    Pennsylvania The new law allows oil and gas companies to use and transport acid mine drainage AMD without the threat of liability for cost injury or damage arising from its use An innovative water treatment method already in use at a demonstration project in the Commonwealth makes it possible to remove metal and sulfate contamination from AMD to make the water usable for oil and gas applications From Liability to Resource Toxic water from mining can be discharged into the local environment and carried miles downstream to lakes and reservoirs far removed from the original source of contamination Impacted streams can sometimes have a pH similar to that of battery acid low enough to burn human skin and kill fish and other aquatic life At the same time water use has become flash point for hydraulic fracturing and other water intensive industrial processes A single gas well can use up to 5 million gallons of water between initial fracturing and well completion Using AMD instead of freshwater allows drilling companies to reduce their environmental footprint significantly and diminish friction with local communities Done right using AMD for hydraulic fracturing could be a win win for developers and the environment Breaking Down Legal Barriers Prior to passage of Senate Bill 875 these waters were legally and politically toxic Under the Commonwealth s Clean Streams Law companies wanting to clean and use mine water for other purposes could potentially be held liable for cleaning up the site in perpetuity even though they were not responsible for the initial contamination While repurposing water from coal mines for oil and gas development has been in discussion for years liability concerns have discouraged the industry from moving forward Treated acid mine drainage water from Winner Water Services Sykesville PA site is available for immediate use by oil and gas operators and other industrial users Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection authorized Winner Water to treat store withdraw and sell water from the Sykesville facility without liability for further treatment under the Clean Streams Law The new law opens the door for treated mine water to be substituted for fresh water for oil and gas well development potentially conserving millions of gallons of fresh water According to the law companies will be immune from liability related to the use of AMD as long as it is 1 used outside of the boundaries of the permitted mining activity site 2 used for oil and gas development and 3 the mine operator is not the same entity using the treated mine water for oil and gas well development Solving the Technical Challenges Contaminated mine water cannot be used as is however In order to make mine water usable for hydraulic fracturing or other industrial purposes it must first be treated to remove both heavy metals and sulfates Many AMD treatment options remove only metals leaving behind high levels of sulfates that can interfere with fracking fluid chemistry Conventional precipitation methods generally are not able to reduce sulfate concentrations below
