Industrial User Permitting Location: St. Pauls, NC Project Cost: $40,312 to date Project Completed: Ongoing Reference: Steve Edge Client: Robeson County Landfill Project Description:Environmental Permitting  On behalf of the Robeson County Landfill, Porter Scientific is currently under contract to provide environmental consulting services for compliancy monitoring, permitting updates/changes, and investigation of economically efficient disposal techniques. Porter has managed and developed the 10 Yr. Solid Waste Plan for the County in accordance with North Carolina General Statute 130A which requires all local governments to create a plan and update it every three years. Porter has prepared this report and all subsequent amendments/updates on behalf of Robeson County and its municipalities since 2008. Porter is currently managing a disposal plan for the Landfill’s Leachate to the Town of St. Pauls. Our consultants have provided oversight and technical guidance to the Landfill and the Town of St. Pauls, on Industrial User Permitting (IUP) management and enactment. Porter gained approval from NCDENR for a six month pilot test, for which Porter is responsible for all correspondence and monitoring requirements. 16
  • 17. Solid Waste Management Porter Scientific wrote and successfully obtained a $ 1 million US Department of Energy Grant on behalf of Robeson County, NC to develop a landfill gas beneficial use project at the Robeson County Landfill in St. Pauls. Porter Scientific also provided Construction Management/RPR services during construction of the 13 acre-Phase 4 MSW Landfill. The utilization of the landfill gas will prevent atmospheric emissions of approximately 44,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents per year while providing a renewable energy source of approximately 131,400 MMBtu’s or 38.5MM kWhs annually. Porter Scientific conducts semi-annual groundwater sampling for the Robeson County Landfill groundwater monitoring wells and surface water locations. Porter Scientific analyzes laboratory results to determine if any detected constituents are above NCAC Subchapter 2L Appendix I or II water quality standards. As part of the analysis, Porter Scientific performs a statistical evaluation of the laboratory results that are above regulatory limits to determine if there are significant differences compared to background well constituent levels. Methane Gas Recovery System Groundwater Monitoring Porter Scientific prepares the NCDENR Solid Waste Section semi-annual compliance report for the groundwater and surface water sampling events. The Water Quality Monitoring Report contains the laboratory constituent results, tables, and discussions of any NCAC 2L water quality limit violations. Porter Scientific also prepares the NCDENR Solid Waste Environmental Monitoring Form and laboratory data in an NCDENR electronic format. 17

Monitoring, Testing, Treating, Repair and Reporting Water Quality for Steam, Chill Water, and Closed Loop Systems Location: Robins AFB, GA Project Cost: $ 3.3 million Project Completed: October 2016 Project Description: Water Conservation/Pollution Prevention Porter Scientific manages Robins AFB’s Industrial Water Treatment (IWT) program, thereby protecting infrastructure (boilers, cooling towers, and closed loop systems) against scale deposit formation, microbiological growth, and corrosion – directly impacting the readiness mission of WRALC. Porter provides monitoring, testing and reporting of water quality for steam, chill water, and closed loop systems, including chemical treatment services. Required laboratory tests are performed in the base IWT laboratory. Based on lab test results, chemical feed levels are adjusted as needed to achieve acceptable chemical concentrations levels in industrial water systems. Porter also performs repairs to faulty systems such as inoperable valves, leaking/undersized water supply lines/piping, nonexistent/improper pump insulation, and inoperable/undersized float valves. Replacing critical equipment facilitates compliance with Technical Order 1-1-691.  18
