  • 3. MCI Plymouth • Existing Title 5 System – Serving 200 Inmates, 15 staff = 13,825 GPD – Failed Inspection in Sept 2007 • Need - Expanding Population – Design System to Serve 300 inmates, 21 staff for 31,000 GPD (**100 GPD/Inmate**) • Reason for MBR - Campus is located within several Drinking Water Zone IIs – Effluent Quality to Meet DEP’s Interim Guidelines on Reclaimed Water Horsley Witten Group, Inc.
  • 4. Permits (Plymouth) • Groundwater Discharge Permit – Engineering / Hydrogeologic Reports • MEPA-ENF: >10,000 GPD in Zone II • MESA- Priority Habitat (8 moths and box turtle) • New Source Approval (new water supply well) • NOI – less than 100’ of Bumps Pond (well) Horsley Witten Group, Inc.
  • 5. Existing Influent (Plymouth) • Daily Flow – 13,000+ GPD – 200 inmates – 15 staff • BOD – 358* mg/L (120 current longer term influent data) • TSS – 210 mg/L • TKN - 124 mg/L • Alkalinity 163 mg/L *24 hour sample during design Horsley Witten Group, Inc.
  • 6. Design Effluent* (Plymouth) • Daily Flow – 31,000 GPD – 300 inmates – 21 staff • BOD <30 mg/L • TSS – 10 mg/L • Total Nitrogen <10 mg/L *Based on DEP Interim Guidelines on Reclaimed Water (BRP/DWM/PeP/P00-3) Horsley Witten Group, Inc.
  • 7. Evaluate Alternatives (Plymouth) • Evaluated treatment alternatives: – Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) • $2.0 Million * – Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR) • $2.6 Million – Rotating Biological Contactors (RBC) • $2.9 Million *DCAM Accepted Low Bid – Prevailing Wage Horsley Witten Group, Inc.
