oil discharge monitoring Applications available in Virginia

  • Stormwater Discharge Monitoring for Oil Spills

    Leakwise can detect oil spills in stormwater due to runoff and open channels before discharge into public water.

  • Monitoring TPH in Produced Sand for Overboard Discharge

    Sitelab's TD-500D analyzer is used on offshore oil platforms to test TPH in produced sand. The sand is contaminated by crude oil and must be treated prior to overboard discharge in order to meet regulatory limits.

  • Water discharge monitoring for retention tanks

    Leakwise detects oil buildup in retention tanks at the end of the treatment process and prevents the discharge of oily water into the environment.

    Monitoring of hydrocarbons in bilge water

    The Situation

    Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited by national and international regulations.

    Monitoring of hydroelectric dam sumps

    The Situation

    Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage:

    • The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils.
    • The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils.
    • Vehicles including fork lifts, trucks, etc., can spill oils and fuels.

    Any accidental spillage of oil or grease or intentional wash down water containing minor amounts of oils, greases, and detergents must be collected and treated before discharge to the river. These fluids along with any water leaks are collected in sumps in the dam and are regularly pumped out. In many cases, the volume of water is substantial.
