IV. Feed water pH
V. Chlorides in Feed water


1.1. Annual Inspection:

i. The following are inspected as part of Annual inspection by Boiler inspector:
i. Open inspection
ii. Hydraulic testing.

ii. All stop valves will be closed, safety valves are dummied and boiler is subjected
to 1.5 times its working pressure.

iii. Boiler inspector inspects condition of tubes and whether the pressure is
maintained for atleast 10 mins.

iv. Once through, Form – VI will be issued by Boiler inspector for use of in steam
generation.

3.0. MONITORING, RECORDING & REPORTING OF WATER

3.1. WATER CONSUMPTION MONITORING:

The following is the procedure for monitoring of water consumption in the unit:

i. Water drawn for Domestic, Industrial and Process for the previous month shall
be recorded and submitted to EHS department who in turn report to Pollution
Control Board on or before 5
th
of every month.

3.1.1. WATER DRAWN FOR INDUSTRIAL USE:


i. Water for Industrial use comprises of consumption for Boiler, Process
Cylinders, Lamina Redriers and DG Cooling Towers.

ii. Sum of the Meter readings at the above points shall be recorded on daily basis
and monthly consumption shall to be arrived at.


3.1.2. WATER DRAWN FOR DOMESTIC USE:


i. Water for domestic use comprises of consumption at Canteen, Labour shed,
Bungalow compound, drinking & toilets etc.,

ii. Water used for domestic purpose is mainly drawn from designated wells.

iii. Readings of the above meters provided at the wells are to be recorded on a
daily basis and monthly consumption has to be arrived at.


3.2. RECORDING & REPORTING

1) The DG Supervisor shall update records showing the water drawn for
industrial & domestic consumption on a daily basis.

2) Water drawn for Domestic, Industrial and Process for the previous
month shall be recorded and submitted to EHS department who in
turn report to Pollution Control Board on or before 5
th
of every month.

3.3. EFFLUENT WATER SYSTEM
i. Effluent water collected from Industrial and domestic sources is
adequately treated and reused to comply with APPCB Norms.

ii. Effluent water to ETP shall be metered at its inlet and outlet and recorded
on a daily basis.

iii. Details of metering on monthly basis shall be sent to EHS Department for
submission to Pollution control board.

iv. Treated water quality shall be tested on monthly basis.



4.0. OPERATION OF EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT

i. The following are the areas from which effluents are generated:

1. DM plant.
2. Boiler blowdown.
3. DG cooling towers blowdown.
4. Canteen and main office.
5. Southern bungalow compound.
6. Toilets

ii. All the effluents are collected in a mixed condition in a intermittent equalization
tank.

iii. Effluent after getting screened in Bar screen chamber is pumped from
equalisation tank into FAB reactors.

iv. In FAB reactors, the action of bacteria under aerated condition treats effluent.
FAB reactors contain media, which help in holding the bacteria.

v. After treatment, water enters Tube settlers where suspended solids are trapped
and removed by draining.

vi. FAB reactors have to be drained on a weekly basis. Tube settlers are to be
drained once in 4 hours.

vii. The drained sludge is collected in sludge drying beds, where it is subjected to
evaporation.

viii. Treated water is then pumped from final storage tanks through to an
intermediate storage tank for distribution.

ix. ETP is metered at its inlet and outlet water lines and records of incoming and
treated water are maintained.

x. The incoming water pH is checked on an hourly basis and recorded. It should
not be less than 6.5.

2. Ash cooling and wetting.
3. Coal wetting and
4. Toilets flushing
