Feasibility and Treatability (F&T) studies

The principal objectives of the Feasibility and Treatability studies should be clearly laid down. F & T studies are performed to understand the economic viability and technical feasibility of various processes and generate technical data critical to address the major constituents of concern. A detailed site investigation and characterization are required before an evaluation and technology screen can be made. The studies should be tailored to obtain appropriate and sufficient data to assist in the determination of the most viable technology. This also helps to prepare an initial process design as well as to determine the capital and process operations cost estimates.

The feasibility of a proposed treatment process is normally verified and evaluated through means of a laboratory or bench-scale treatability study. MORF performs numerous technology evaluations, F & T studies for water and waste water treatment projects. Sometimes, performance of pilot study will be necessary after completion of the treatability testing to confirm effectiveness of the process or determine the scale-up factors.

F&T studies typically involve activities like collection of representative samples, in-depth analysis of the samples and contamination mapping, bench-scale and pilot-scale field deployment and evaluation of various treatment methodologies, preparation of a concept flow sheet (initial process design), basic and detailed engineering, preparation of budgetary cost estimate for implementation of the project, operations cost and various factors which may impact the project (cost-benefit analysis). After the completion of an F&T study on alternate options, solutions which will deliver optimum performance are recommended.

Water Management Surveys

Water is essential for existence. While 70% of earth's surface is covered by water, only a tiny fraction (1%) of this is available as fresh water.  The pressure on the world's fresh water resources is increasing rapidly due to factors such as population growth, economic development, rising per capita consumption, aging infrastructures, droughts, unabated pollution and environmental degradation.  All these factors contribute to acute problems of water availability, usability and distribution.  The increasing scarcity of water resources is also leading to trans-boundary disputes on a various scales with global ramifications.

In this scenario, the key to sustainable development of water resources lies in developing a thorough understanding of various factors affecting these resources and taking an integrated approach to their management and ensuring the participation of stakeholders at all stages of the project.  MORF is dedicated to providing comprehensive services to our clients which covers all aspects of the evaluation, development and management of water resources at a micro level. ie., domestic segments, institutions and industries.

Our water management surveys cover factors such as mapping the availability of water resources, analyzing the ground water hydrology and ways to enhance availability through conservation and rain water storage, assessing the anticipated usage demand and usability aspect by analyzing the contaminants in the water through in-depth laboratory analysis, evaluating deployment of treatment technologies, optimum utilization of water by minimizing the requirement for fresh water demand, reclamation of  used water by using appropriate treatment methodologies for reuse.

Water Audits

The increasing use of water drawn from limited fresh water resources has resulted in a wide gap between the demand and availability of fresh water. The need to take effective steps to control the ever-increasing demand for fresh water and initiate measures to conserve water has become an issue of vital importance.

Water audit is an effective tool and a systematic approach to identify, quantify and monitor the various utilities of water in a given facility / premises. Water audit also determines the quantity and quality of water intake and discharge in each use. The results of a properly conducted comprehensive water audit helps to estimate the current usage, scope to reduce excess / wasteful usage and losses, identify means of reuse / recyclying and forecast future needs of this precious resource. This in turn leads to significant reduction of overall water usage by establishing conservation practice norms, creates more efficient usage patterns, better utilization / reuse of water and substantially increases the overall efficacy and conservation potential of the complete water circuit.

Water audits typically trace the flow of water from the source of water withdrawal or treatment through the water distribution system and into end-use points. The concept of Water Balance summarizes the components and provides accountability, as all the water placed into a distribution system should - in theory - equal all the water taken out of the distribution system.

Water audits help to plan and implement measures for effective water management during periods of growth and also to address certainty of water supply during periods of water stress. These audits can be undertaken in individual houses, apartments, commercial establishments, institutions and water-intensive industries.

MORF offers water audits which are specifically designed to suit the requirements of individual customers. The nature and extent of auditing will vary depending on the sector and its size. A DPR with suitable recommendations for optimizing the circuit will be submitted after the study.

Technical Audits

A technical audit is a systematic and objective examination of a product / project to determine whether the project / product adheres to the stated performance criteria and delivers the desired quality of output on a consistent basis. Technical audits and assessments may be used as an investigative tool where problems are suspected. Methodical audits can reveal non-conformance and deviations in product designs, compromises in the quality of construction material, faulty engineering, non-adherence to critical safety practices, deficient operating procedures and documentation procedures. Such audits may also throw light in to the roots of oft-occurring maintenance snags and sources of error.

Proactive analysis of equipment condition may also help to identify potential health and environmental hazards (safety evaluation) and recommend solutions to mitigate / prevent a potentially catastrophic event from occurring.

In a nutshell, the scope of a technical audit is to identify the configuration efficiency of the products and suggest improvisations for optimum performance and safety. Implementation of the findings of technical audits results in the reduction of occurrences of fault, adherence to regulatory requirements, optimization of running expense and thereby save huge costs.

MORF offers technical audits on water treatment projects, sewage, sullage and kitchen effluent treatment projects. Audits are conducted by following established inspection procedures, data collection, performance evaluation, cost estimations (capital and recurring) to identify potential anomalies. Based on the audit, a Detailed Technical Report (DTR) containing corrective and preventive measures for continual improvement will be submitted.

Rain Water Harvesting

Rain water has been harvested in India since antiquity with our ancestors perfecting the art of water management. Many harvesting structures and water conveyance systems specific to the eco-regions and culture have been developed. In ancient times, the rain drops were harvested directly. People collected water and stored it in tanks built in their courtyards. Rainfalls on the open community lands were collected and stored in artificial wells. Monsoon runoff and water from flooded rivers were harvested in various forms of water bodies. Today, due to shrinking open space, the traditional methods of harvesting may not be viable and contemporary practices need to be followed.

Failing monsoons, increased requirement for fresh water, over-exploitation and consequent depletion of ground water levels and the rising per capita water consumption have made rain water harvesting a necessity and an ideal solution. Rapid urbanization has adversely impacted the groundwater hydrology by drastically reducing the infiltration of rain water into the sub-soil and subsequently the recharging of ground water aquifers has significantly diminished. This has also resulted in deterioration of ground water quality.

Effective rain water harvesting reduces urban flooding, prevents excessive runoffs, avoids choking of sewer or storm water drains, reduces the load on treatment plants and sufficiently recharges / replenishes the deeper aquifers resulting in improved quality of existing ground water through dilution.

Rain water harvesting operates on the principle of collecting and using water from the catchment surface. Rain water can be collected from roof tops of buildings and even road tops. The storage of rain water on surface is a traditional technique and structures used were underground tanks, ponds, check dams, weirs etc. Recharge to ground water is a new concept of rain water harvesting and the structures generally used are Recharge (Soak / Percolation) Pits, Trenches, Dug Wells, Recharge Wells, Recharge shafts, Lateral shafts with bore wells and Spreading techniques.

MORF offers complete consultancy in Rain Water Harvesting. Our technical team would visit the site for an assessment and based on the same suitable harvest plans will be developed. Subsequently, our technical team will submit a detailed drawing containing the structures to be raised and the plumbing arrangements required. However, our scope of work is confined to consultancy and the execution of the project will have to be entrusted to outside agencies.
