CCI – Water Management was initiated in Australia following various Environmental incidents. The common identified issue related to contaminants either being washed from machinery or spraying equipment in turf applications. Without appropriate design or bioremediation treatment systems such contaminants simply were let untreated and were exposed through lack for knowledge into the environment with detrimental effects.
Through partnership with ESD Waste 2 Water in the USA. CCI – Water Management are now at the forefront in providing custom “Environmental Centres” with our clients to contain, manage and treat any hydrocarbon based contaminates with custom solutions for various site applications.
KEY EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS
Biological Units – Wash Water Treatment
Biological Units – 1-Hose, 2-Hose, 3-Hose, 4-Hose and More Systems
ESD’s biological wash water recycling system is designed to decontaminate waste water from the washing of industrial equipment or parts. This environmentally friendly wash water recycle system employs a biological remediation process that uses biological agents to remove or neutralize contaminants from polluted soil or water. ESD’s line of wash water recycle systems are versatile and low maintenance and are extremely effective for all waste water recycling applications.
Grass Clipping Separator
The Clipping Separator System is designed to help create tidy wash areas by effectively handling grass clippings, sand and other small debris from normal turf care wash operations.
The System is also designed for pretreatment for either:
Waste2Water wash water recycle systems, or Discharging wash water to the sanitary sewer
The Clipping Separator can be used for 9, 18, 27 or 36-hole golf courses, and can handle up to 6 wash stations. The system includes pre-engineered in-ground sumps, and above-ground components that make handling grass clippings simple, easy and effective.
Equipment washing for golf course properties
Cleaning turf care and mowing equipment after each use is becoming a common practice for golf facilities. The ESD grass clipping and debris separator, paired with a complete environmental wash station, removes grass clippings and debris from the decks, reels, wheels and carriage of the mowers and economically recycles wash water. ESD’s golf course wash pad can also safely remove petroleum products and harmful chemicals from golf course equipment. Golf course turf care and mowing equipment is expected to operate with a high level of precision. Proper cleaning after each use helps to maintain high performance standards.
ESD’s well-designed and environmentally friendly equipment washing areas can perform many valuable functions including:
Minimizing environmental impacts
Limiting facility liability by complying with applicable laws
Recycling waste water to lower operating and maintenance costs
Maintaining equipment performance
Improving worker health and safety
A- Round Sump
B- Clipping Separator
The wash water slurry flows over the fine mesh clipping screen where grass and other solids slide down the clipping screen and into the Clipping Cart. At the same time, water drops through the clipping screen and into the Solids Separator.
C- Clipping Cart
The clipping cart captures grass clippings, sand particulates and other solids. The solids are de-watered as they drip-dry in the Clipping Cart. The water drains into a Shallow Sump below the Clipping Cart. Once de watered, the grass clippings are removed and disposed of appropriately.
D - Shallow Sump
Below the Clipping Cart a Shallow Sump collects excess water where it is drained back to the Round Sump.
Wash water from the Clipping Separator flows through a series of baffles and then gravity feeds into the Biological Treatment System, or to the sanitary sewer (as per local requirements). Fine solids settle, and are drained on a regular basis, through valves in the bottom of the Solids Separator. The solids are then deposited into the Clipping Cart for disposal.
ESD Waste 2 Water treatment systems are specifically designed technology for biologically treating hydrocarbon based contaminants.
Today in the golf course Maintenance area, activities like washing course equipment means that wash down areas are exposed to contaminants such as oil, grease, anti-freeze, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and detergents.
The biggest cause of concern is once these hydrocarbons are removed from machinery where do these contaminants end up going? In many situations golf courses put themselves at a huge potential risk with what does happen to their wash down water.
Your wash bay requires consideration of your proposed pollutant containment, treatment and disposal goals against capital and maintenance costs.
By addressing this high risk area your club will:
minimize the potential for an environmental incident
minimize the potential for environmental fines and prosecutions
demonstrate due diligence
improve the club’s environmental profile
The wash bay area at your golf club is perhaps the most significant source of pollutant constituents in storm water runoff from the course. Other maintenance area activities such as the storage of fuels and the mixing and loading of chemicals simply contribute to the high environmental risks associated with operating a maintenance area.
The Sydney case has clearly demonstrated that golf club management decision making must include a precaution based approach focusing not only upon potential hazards but also on hazards already known to exist at the club. Many clubs do not have appropriate wash bays and containment areas. Importantly in the Sydney case, the EPA submitted that had the spill been contained on-site no environmental harm would have occurred or would have been likely to occur. Your club does not want to be the next club to negligently contribute to an environmental offence by not managing its wash bay operations.
