Elke Boyd to Present on Wastewater Irrigation at MRWA Northeast Training Day

Elke B. Boyd, P.E., BCEE, Senior Civil Engineer with GREDELL Engineering Resources, Inc., will be presenting “Considerations for Wastewater Irrigation; an Engineer’s Perspective” at this year’s Missouri Rural Water Association’s Northeast Training Day. The Training Day provides a full day of water and wastewater training in Monroe City, Missouri on January 30, 2020 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Elke’s session will take place from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. All those interested in learning more about the fields of water and wastewater are invited to attend.

Until recently, 3-cell flow-through lagoons were considered the ideal solution for small communities in need of a low-cost and effective method of wastewater treatment with minimal operational complexity. However, recent regulatory changes are posing challenges to the limits of treatment in these systems. Many lagoons will either have to be upgraded, converted or replaced. Navigating the multitude of options on the market today can be challenging and confusing. This presentation takes a closer look at land application, which frequently presents itself as one of the solutions that is cheapest, easiest to operate and most acceptable to regulators. Land application is particularly attractive to small communities as well as private wastewater generators.

For the engineer, there is no cookie cutter solution. Each system must consider client preferences, local site conditions, existing storage capacity, space constraints, availability of suitable land, soil permeability, leased versus wholly-owned sites, single-phase versus three-phase power, funding environment, and more.

The mission of the MRWA is to be the leading source of professional services, support, and representation for Missouri water and wastewater utilities. The Association provides field and training services as well as a variety of tools and partnerships for the water and wastewater professional.
