Wastewater Treatment Services – The wastewater treatment environment has shifted dramatically in Pennsylvania in 2011. The DEP's request that drillers voluntarily not use "exempt" permitted wastewater treatment facilities, like AWS of PA, for the disposal of Marcellus well-related wastewaters, created some confusion in the marketplace.
To help us clarify the DEP's intent, we contacted Dana Aunkst, PA DEP's Deputy Secretary for Field Operations, on August 22, 2011.
Mr. Aunkst confirmed that the intent of the DEP's voluntary request was limited to Marcellus shale generated flowback and produced wastewaters only. He further confirmed that the voluntary request DOES NOT extend to wastewater from shallow well (aka non Marcellus wells) drilling and fracturing nor does it extend to spent drilling mud and other sludge disposal (from shallow or Marcellus wells) as these are not considered flowback and/or produced wastewaters.
Centralized Wastewater Treatment & Disposal – AWS provides wastewater treatment and disposal services at our PA DEP Permitted Facility in New Castle, PA, for flowback and production wastewaters from Shallow (non Marcellus) well drilling, fracturing and production activities.
Shallow Well Wastewaters ARE NOT SUBJECT to DEP's voluntary wastewater treatment restrictions
Centralized Treatment for Re-Use/Return – AWS provides Re-Use & Return wastewater treatment services for ALL Marcellus, Utica and Shallow Well drilling, flowback and production wastewaters with capacity up to 200,000 gallons per day. AWS will remove solids, metals and other pollutants, add biocide to keep water oxygenated, and return the water back to your pond or tank farm for future re-use.
On Site Treatment – Using the extensive knowledge and experience we've gathered from treating a wide range of industrial wastewaters for more than 15 years, AWS will custom design, build and operate an on-site Treatment for Re-Use system at your site to handle ALL of your contaminated wastewaters. We provide a turn-key solution, staffed by our team that will treat wastewater to your specification and return it for your Re-Use, manage the sludge for disposal and, most importantly, let you focus on your business, not on waste processing.
Drilling Mud & Sludge Processing Services – Our New Castle facility is uniquely equipped with the dewatering and solidification capabilities necessary to receive and process spent drilling muds as well as tank, pit and retention pond sludges and deal with any remaining water phases in our treatment process. We accept trucks of all kinds, including full opening rear door dumps.
Wastewaters derived from Drilling Muds and Drill Pad Tank, Pit and Pond Sludges ARE NOT SUBJECT to DEP's voluntary wastewater treatment restrictions.
