Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP)
Plant waste water is minimal, however TJB has a waste water treatment plant to where all plant waste water is directed for treatment. The sources of the waste water include general plant waste water including Blowdown, coal plant run off, ash storage run off and other minor sources.
Waste water is collected in a retention basin, from where it is directed to a clarifier to remove suspended solids. The water is then moved to the neutralization basin where stable chemistry and pH adjustments are made before discharge. The process is designed to accommodate and adjust to maintain compliance with environmental regulatory requirements.
Comprehensive instrumentation is fitted to the plant to monitor the process, conditioning, and outflow. Should any monitored parameter indicate that it may be exceeding any measured parameter or water quality limits, the outflow is diverted to return to the retention basin for further processing.
