wastewater can enter the environment a number of ways including
direct discharges to waterways, indirect discharge via municipal
sewer systems, and discharge through precipitation
runoff from a contaminated site into storm sewers, open ditches
and groundwater regime. These industrial wastewater discharges may
contravene municipal by-laws, the Ontario Environmental
Protection Act and
the Ontario Water Resources
Act. The discharge
of contaminants via these routes can be controlled through in-plant
modifications, effluent pre-treatment and site management.
In addition to surface water treatment DCS applies its knowledge of treatment systems to the treatment of contaminated groundwater. Following completion of hydrogeological studies the appropriate treatment technology is chosen and integrated into a treatment program. The program is designed to permit discharge of treated water to a plant treatment system or to the municipal sewer system.
DCS provides a full range of services for the investigation and treatment of both surface and groundwater regimes. These services include:
