COAL RUNOFF MODIFICATION REPORT & ANALYSISCalculation as technical basis for Coal Runoff PMSFinal Version
By Muhammad Arif Susetyo
Background of analysis
It is reported by EPC via SCJO letter No. L-SJ-P-T-43 0026 dated 27 December 2012 regarding
“Retention BASIN
Water Discoloration from coal yard runoff pond water” that
Total SuspendedSolid in WWT retention basin is abnormally high (TSS = 6950 mg/L)
. Based on retention basinobservation, this elevated level of TSS is mostly due to fine coal material consisted in water beingsent to the retention basin, and causes extensive damage to the retention pumps. While in warrantyperiod, such reparation of pump is covered by EPC, but after the warranty period damage of thepump will be the responsibility of PLN/KPJB.
Due to the aforementioned situation, such conditionmust be resolved.
Root Cause Failure Analysis
Because most of the Suspended Solid consisted of fine coal particle, additional TSS measurement isdone to Coal Runoff Basin (CS1), and Coal Transfer Sump (CS2). Detailed location of sampling are asfollow :

3Data of TSS Measurement are as follow :
Sample Location TSS (mg/l)
Coal Runoff Basin (CS1) Upper 24,2
Coal Runoff Basin (CS1) Bottom 233.577,87
Transfer Pump Pit (CS2) Upper 106,06Transfer Pump Pit (CS2) Bottom 4.712,08Table 1 : Total Suspended Solid DataThe data above shows the condition of CS1 & CS2 approximately 1 week after rainstorm. It can beconcluded that
settling of coal sludge occurs in sump pit, and the aforementioned pump transfersmost of the sludge into WWT retention basin.
It can be observed that the upper portion of CS1 &CS2 has very little amount of coal as observed in CS1 Upper TSS data of 46 mg/L versus CS1 BottomTSS of 233.500 mg/l. The barrier wall located in front of CS1 Sump Intake is ineffective in isolatingthe sludge from entering the aforementioned sump pit.
Design Criteria of system modification
As previously explained, it can be concluded that there needs to be a way to filter and isolate theCS1 Sump pump from sludge existing in CS1 Basin. Based on the condition of upper portion of CS1, itwould be
advantageous to fill CS1 pump pit
using coal runoff water from the upper portion of thecoal runoff basin due to low TSS level.
The existing system in the coal retention basin does not haveany filtration system, andAlso, it would be beneficial that strainer to be installed in the system. However, the inclusion of strainer can also pose risk of plugging. So this risk needs to be carefully addressed.Based on the explanation, the following design criteria can be defined;-
System able to fill sump pit with water
from upper part of coal runoff basin
whereas TSSlevel is the lowest-
System able
to filter the suspended solid
still available in the upper part of CS1-
System able to
Sump Pit
from Coal Runoff Basin-
Strainer system can be
easily cleaned by operator
if clogged
