2003 Pollution Control Study for SingSpring Singapore
SingSpring is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hyflux Ltd specialising in water treatment. They are trying to develop a desalination plant to supply potable water to PUB. The proposed plant is to produce fresh water from seawater using the reverse osmosis process.
The scope of work for this study is to conduct a discharge dispersion study to predict the dispersion and mixing of a brine plume in the coastal waters around the area. The study was performed on a stipulated configuration of a submerged outfall and seawater intake and the corresponding flow rates, with a pre-determined land mass boundary specified by SingSpring.
The Pollution Control Study will specifically involve:
Identifying sources of emission of air pollutants, discharge of trade effluent, generation of waste and emission of noise,
Quantifying and evaluating the impacts of such pollutive emissions,
Recommending the measures to be incorporated in the design and operation of the plant to reduce the pollutive emissions to acceptable levels that would not pose a nuisance or harm to the people and the environment, and
Recommending a monitoring program to review the effectiveness of implemented mitigation measures on a regular basis.
