EMWD Long Term, continued from page 20
The final Emergency Management Plan included:
Project No. 1: Perris Valley Regional Water Reclamation Fa-cility
(PVRWRF) Equipment Audit: a detailed energy audit of
the building envelope, lighting, HVAC and operational equipment
to identify Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs) to reduce energy; 16
EEMs were identified and 12 were recommended as cost-effective.
Project No. 2: PVRWRF Process Audit: Evaluation of process
improvements to reduce energy use; 18 EEMs were identified, seven
were recommended as cost effective, and 11 process improvements
were suggested for further investigation.
Project No. 3: Perris Water Filtration Plant Energy Au-dit.
The process and equipment energy audit identified 19 EEMs
and three Water Efficiency Measures (WEMs) and recommended 11
cost-effective EEMs and two WEMs for implementation.
Project No. 4: IC Engines to Electric Motors Optimized
Ranking. Evaluated operating performance and cost of the district’s
56 natural gas IC engines and the cost-effectiveness of converting 41 to
electric motors. The final plan recommended conversion of 16.
Project No. 5: Digester Gas-Fueled Microturbines. Evaluat-ed
the potential energy savings from five microturbines to be fueled
by digester gas from the district’s water reclamation facilities (anal-ysis
provided by the South Coast Air Quality Management District).
CA-NV AWWA COMMITTEE SPOTLIGHT:
THE MISSION OF CA-NV AWWA’S ENERGY COMMITTEE is to
provide timely and useable energy-related management information
for members of the water works industry that will encourage
sustainable, environmentally friendly, efficient and cost-effective energy use.
The committee’s goals for the upcoming year are: 1) to increase
engagement of water industry professionals in sustainable, energy-related
information and operating techniques, and 2) to increase coordination and
collaboration with other divisions and committees of CA-NV AWWA as
well as external organizations such as ACWA (Association of California
Water Agencies), CalWEC (California Water and Energy Coalition) and
WEF (Water Environment Federation) on water-energy related issues.
Recently the committee provided input on the AWWA Energy
Management Handbook (in development), participated on CA-NV AWWA’s
ad hoc committees to evaluate requests for positions on CEC (California
Energy Commission) policies and Managed CA-NV AWWA’s annual
Outstanding Energy Management Award, which this year recognized
Eastern Municipal Water District.
The committee welcomes input and is open to new members. For
information, contact Chair Crystal Dirks: DirksC@BV.com or Co-Chair
