  16. 16. Introduction  ______________________________________________________  Waterfront Product Analysis Abstract An analysis of compiled technical and market information needed to review the product life cycle (LCA), performance and cost benefits of the KRIA-EcoUSA Industrial Water Purifier manufactured by EcoUSA, LLC, Denver, CO Recent assessments by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency indicate that 44% of river and stream miles and 64% of lake and reservoir acres are impaired pursuant to section 305(b) of the U.S. Clean Water Act (E.P.A. 2009). The impairments are caused by the transfer of nutrients, toxic substances and pathogens from watersheds, and to a lesser extent airsheds, to receiving waters. Large volumes of chemicals, many with potentially serious long-term toxicity problems, are put into lakes and other reservoirs regularly, in attempts to improve water quality As they relate to the manufacture and distribution of the KRIA-EcoUSA Ionizer (industrial water purifying equipment) – independent professional reviews include: ▪ waterfront industry – overview of need ▪ product performance specifications ▪ case studies, prototype and testing standards ▪ parameters for distribution, contractors and maintenance service networks. Case Study comments include data on the effectiveness of KRIA-EcoUSA equipment in site specific waterways and watersheds. The data; defined by area/depth (full water column, to water bed depths) and water quality benchmarks, note the following: ▪ A significant depletion of tracked pollutants, and contaminants. ▪ A significant increase of dissolved oxygen (DO) throughout the test area. ▪ Secondary changes in the water body, which restore a natural balance to the marine eco-system. ______________________________________________________ KRIA-EcoUSA prototype ©TECHBlue Center Rev: 10-2012
  17. 17. Introduction  ______________________________________________________  This report is a first step in compiling technical and market information needed to review the product life cycles, performance and cost benefits of Industrial Water Purifying Equipment ADVANTAGES OF SUSTAINABLE REVIEWS TECHBlue Center1 professional reviews produce company management information based on the following – as they relate technology used in, on, or near water bodies: Evidenced-based Design – set and develop quantifiable criteria for product and project improvement. Quality Control – maintain and comply with recognized industry standards2. Interdisciplinary reviews (common denominators and benchmarks for waterway improvement). Environmental Management – comply with recognized environmental policies (i.e. develop management methods which decrease regulatory review and permit time). Distribution Efficiency – develop strategies and training methods for the supply chain (i.e. increase dealer cost/benefit margins). Assurance & Performance – validate company policies and guarantees (i.e. market and business leadership). ______________________________________________________ 1 The TECHBlue Center review process does NOT result in a certification. Sustainable site and product characteristics change overtime, which in-turn will change review specifications and may change industry benchmarks. Reviewed products and applications may receive a rating relative to a benchmark for improvement. See TECHBlue Policies and Practices.. 2 Recognized by International Standards Organization (ISO), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Construction Specification Institute (CSI) and by professional industry peer-review. ©TECHBlue Center Rev: 10-2012
  18. 18. Marina Site Development - Excerpts Off-Street Parking Analysis Typical boat storage and marina sites have less than 25% of the total storage inventory in use during any given time of operation. The maximum 25% average includes peak usage times (i.e., Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, etc.). As a standard, these patterns are consistent in all reports – year-to-year, and in every area of the country. Total boat storage inventory is historically less than the original boat count plan. A number of exceptions to a ‘total boat count method’ may be recognized, which place downward pressure on numbers for total boats in use. With reference to usage of waterfront property, the following review can be used to help mitigate site optimization parking layouts with environmental regulations. 1.0 Executive Summary & Administration 1.1 Management Objectives 1.2 Regulatory Guidance 1.3 Planning Options 2.0 Planning Options 2.1 Industry Analysis 2.2 Peak Demand 3.0 Environmental Decisions 3.1 Site Analysis 3.2 Energy & Parking Maximums 3.2 Water & Drainage Considerations 4.0 Standard Applications 4.1 Layouts 4.2 Typical Cost/Benefit 6.0 Summary 6.1 Development Conformance with Environmental Procedures 6.2 Priorities Checklist 7.0 References & Resources www.cleanwaterfront.net ©TECHBlue Center

Fishermen's Village Marina features: Florida Clean Marina Program Best Management Practices Pumpout Use Incentives Customer Service Programs EPA Energy Star Participation Storm Water & Environemtnal Impact Plans Industry & Community Involvement Sustainable Product Selection Safety & Hazard Planning Full Marina Dock Age Article (pdf) TECHBlue Resources A Clean Waterfront Renovation Plan was developed for Fishermen's Village in Spring, 2008. The Plan reviewed clean waterfront strategies which have an impact on our waterways. Some direct benefits from a company-wide environmental commitment include: Marked improvement in the efficiency of waterfront operations. Increased collaboration with educators and regulators about steps to improve your waterfront and environmental footprint. Recognition as an industry and community leader in waterfront improvement. Documented long-term maintenance cost savings for waterfront operations. Fishermen's Village implemented the Clean Waterfront Plan in the Summer of 2008. _______________________________________________________________

The 'anchor' defines a foundation from which to collect data on planning and building clean waterfronts. Quality control information is developed on specific water-body sites and product applications. Reviews are conducted by independent, inter-disciplinary alliances who are guided by industry best management practices (BMPs) and best applied technologies (BATs). Specific review seals contain a location number (zip code) and the year of the last review. Review results are used to educate and inform waterfront construction industries and local communities about applications which help protect and preserve waterfront environments.
