Terminal Wastewater Treatment Evaluation

Terminal Wastewater Treatment Evaluation

Project Highlights:
  • Evaluated wastewater discharge/disposal options pursuant to more stringent regulations
  • Reported to the client on technological and strategic options to meet discharge standards and goals

EEC Environmental (EEC) was retained by a client at a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal. EEC conducted a wastewater treatment evaluation and identified the need for an optimal solution to manage wastewater discharge at the terminal in response to new regulatory requirements for the management of industrial wastewater.

To identify an appropriate solution and assess the short-term and long-term risks, EEC evaluated options available for the discharge and/or disposal of process wastewater originating from the submerged combustion vaporizers and air separator units at the terminal. EEC prepared a report on the various technologies and strategies available to the client to meet wastewater discharge standards and goals as stipulated in the draft permit issued for the LNG Terminal by the state Department of the Environment pursuant to the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System.

EEC Environmental (EEC) is a national expert on all issues related to National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. EEC helps our clients with the permitting process, achieving full compliance with their permit, and negotiating reasonable permit limits and monitoring requirements. EEC’s clients include publically owned treatment works (POTWs), industrial dischargers, developers, and remediation sites. EEC’s experts include former EPA and state regulators with extensive experience addressing NPDES issues.
