BaSYS for indirect discharger register: Trust is good, control is better!

Wastewater from commercial and industrial operations may contain substances that cannot be dissolved out at all or only with difficulty in wastewater treatment plants. Therefore, they must be treated before being discharged into the sewer. In the Federal Republic of Germany, discharge is regulated by Section 57 of the Water Resources Act (WHG). Minimum requirements of substance requirements for industrial sectors are listed for Germany in the Wastewater Ordinance (AbwV). For an operator, lack of controls as well as non-compliance with monitoring values have considerable consequences and are usually associated with costs. The powerful indirect discharger system BaSYS InDATA is the perfect solution to systematically fulfill the legal requirements for the control and monitoring of the plants.

Features at a glance

  • Complete stock control library according to the German Wastewater Ordinance (AbwV)

  • Pipeline cadastre connection with graphical substance tracking

  • Automatic deadline monitoring to meet deadlines

  • Connection to the calendar and task function of Microsoft Outlook

Management of operational data

All relevant operating data can be managed in BaSYS InDATA. In addition to all contact persons of the plant, all contact persons for the subordinate operating units can also be recorded with all contact data. In addition, all necessary operating data such as data on water and own water supply, waste water quantities and hazard classes can be recorded.

A very precise documentation of the company conditions is possible by dividing the companies into operating units. For example, a service station can consist of the operating units service station, car wash and workshop. This ensures that different allocations to substance requirements, permits, pre-treatment facilities and safety equipment can also be made within a company.

Sample and analysis management

Continuous monitoring of the plants is necessary to protect water bodies from hazardous substances and to ensure trouble-free operation of the wastewater treatment plants. This is realized by the analysis of regularly performed sampling.

In BaSYS InDATA, the allocation of the substance charges can be automated by assigning the origin area per operating unit. For this purpose, the complete compilation of material requirements of the Wastewater Ordinance (AbwV) is available as a library. Of course, these can be individually changed or modified. In addition, individual substance requirements can be added in accordance with the statutes.

The analytical results of sampling are clearly compared with the respective substance requirements.

Automatic deadline monitoring

To monitor the plants, e.g. plant inspections or sampling are necessary at irregular intervals. These are managed in BaSYS InDATA via actions. All activities required for monitoring, such as cleaning checks, telephone notes or even comments of any kind, are recorded there as actions. Each of these actions can be provided with person-related resubmissions and with a due date. Upcoming monitoring deadlines can be clearly determined for any period of time using this method.

In addition, tasks or appointments can be transferred from each action to MS Outlook in order to schedule upcoming monitoring appointments via this path.

Substance tracking via existing canal cadastre

If an operator detects increased levels of pollutants, these can be traced back to potential dischargers. By entering the detected substance, these are listed and are then available for further testing.

If a sewer cadastre is integrated in the same database, the corresponding sewer section is highlighted in color after entering the detected substance and all possible dischargers are displayed. The prerequisite for this, however, is the direct linking of the discharger to the sewer cadastre by means of manholes, property drainage lines or pipes.

Graphical representation in the cadastre

If site geometries have been assigned to the sites or site units, they can be visualized together with the property cadastre using the network navigator integrated in BaSYS InDATA, for example. In addition, it is possible to display the respective farm bidirectionally either by clicking in the graphic or by marking the farm in the graphic.

Due to the multi-platform concept integrated in BaSYS, it is of course also possible to use the most suitable graphical interface for the respective operator or user. Thus, the indirect discharger plants can be displayed, queried and plotted together with property and sewer registers on all leading GIS as well as CAD systems or WebMap servers.
