EIGHTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL MEETING / 2015
A Welcome Message from the President
O
n behalf of the New York Water Environment Association and our Board of Directors, I would like to welcome
you to New York City and to our 87th Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is the largest Technical Conference
and Exhibition in New York State. The Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square is a fantastic venue which
provides the Association the ability to present great conference space and contiguous exhibit area with easy access to the
Theatre District’s shows, restaurants and all of the culture NYC has to offer in the off hours.
We are celebrating both the 50th anniversary of New York State’s Pure Waters Program and the meeting’s theme
of Sustainable Water Resource Management in the 21st Century. The Opening Session will feature a dialogue on this
theme and a retrospective on New York State’s Pure Waters Program. The dialogue will cover “Our Commitment, Our
Accomplishments, Our Game Changers and Our Goals for Water Resource Facilities of the Future.” Representatives of
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, NYCDEP, Monroe County, Erie County and Beveridge and Diamond
will provide background on the New York State Program that kick started New York to take Clean Water to the next
level and allow New York municipalities to participate in the Federal Clean Water Grants program which required local
participation. (Back in the day, New York provided matching grants to reduce the overall capital costs involved.) The
dialogue will provide background on the accomplishments achieved and the present challenges of aging infrastructure,
nutrient contamination, climate change and emerging contaminants – to name a few. The dialogue will conclude with a
discussion on Water Resource Recovery Facilities of the future which will be introduced by Dr. Paul Bowen, President–
Elect of the Water Environment Association and Director of Sustainable Operations for Coca Cola. We are also dedicating
another session to this topic on Monday afternoon in Session 3. If you are interested in water policy and understanding how
we got to where we are, I encourage you to attend.
Also at the Opening Session, we will receive an update from a New York City DEP representative and presentations of
scholarships and the prestigious NYWEA Rockefeller Award.
Following the Opening Session, the Exhibit Area officially will open and 180 vendor booths will present the latest in
wastewater and water resource recovery technology and services available. Join us for the ribbon cutting ceremony at
11:45 on the 5th floor to kick off the Exhibition opening, and be sure to attend the Reception in the Exhibit Area Monday
afternoon. The Exhibition will also be open all day Tuesday. The exhibitors, advertisers and program sponsors are vital to
this organization, providing support for the programs that we run and I thank all of them.
During the three day conference, there will be 26 technical sessions on many topics of interest, most of which offer
either Operator Credits or PDHs. Again review the hard copy of the program or install the Guidebook app (see cover) and
plan your attendance.
Review the program for special events, committee meetings, Lifestyles program, coffee breaks, etc. Finally, see the
“Best of NYWEA” at our Awards Lunch on Wednesday and remember this year the technical program runs through
Wednesday afternoon.
NYWEA is a volunteer organization and I thank the Executive Board, the entire Board of Directors, Committee Chairs,
local Chapter Officers and all who participate in the committees and NYWEA’s functions for their support. I hope to thank
all of our numerous volunteers, vendors and sponsors individually during the meeting. Also, hats off to the Executive Office
of NYWEA for everything that they do to make NYWEA one of the best-run member associations in WEF. Welcome to
the Annual Meeting and enjoy!
Sincerely,
Steven Fangmann

The Effect of Composition on Methane Yield in Anaerobic Digestion of Food Waste+
Eileen Leon, Wendong Tao, SUNY ESF
Treating food waste with anaerobic digestion not only solves the disposal issue, but also provides an opportunity
to produce methane and recover energy from it. This study aims to determine how food waste composition affects
methane yields and ammonia accumulation. Different types of feedstock were anaerobically digested in three
continuously stirred tank reactors. Methane yield improved with the addition of 15% lipid-rich food waste.

Optimizing Coagulation for Treatment of High TOC Surface Water and Minimizing Disinfection
Byproduct Formation Potential
Abhisek Manikonda, Christopher Bellona, Ashley Waldron, Clarkson University
Low-pressure membrane (LPM) technologies are becoming increasingly common in drinking water treatment
especially for the removal of pathogens, particles and disinfection byproduct precursors. However, little research
has been performed to evaluate the impact of various pretreatment-LPM processes on DBP formation potential
(DBPFP) and membrane fouling simultaneously in order to optimize pretreatment options. Several pretreatment
approaches for fouling and DBPFP minimization and also the effect of preoxidation on DBPFP minimization
were evaluated.

Climate Change and Cyanobacteria Blooms in Oneida Lake+ ^
Hannah George, Cornell University
The water temperatures in Oneida Lake in New York have been increasing, giving cyanobacteria greater
opportunity to thrive. Over 40 years of temperature and cyanobacteria biovolume data were analyzed. Climate
change is also predicted to bring about more intense rain events, leading to greater amounts of nutrient loading
into the lake. The relationship between phosphorus loading and the density of cyanobacteria from June and July
of 2014 were assessed.

Volatilization of Trihalomethanes in Swimming Pools: Effect of Temperature, Sunlight and Mixing
Christopher Melillo, Jessica Wilson, Erin McGovern, Manhattan College
Swimming pools are typically disinfected with chlorine to make the water safe for use however, these disinfectants
can react with organic matter in the water to form a species of disinfection by-products (DBPs) known as
trihalomethanes (THMs), which are carcinogenic. THMs can be removed from water since they are volatile
compounds. Bench-scale studies of pool water were conducted under varying temperature, sunlight and mixing
conditions to determine the effects of the environment on the volatilization of THMs.

Mercury (Hg) is a toxic metal, poisonous to humans when found in high concentrations. This study delineates the
vertical speciation of the redox species and Hg in the water column of meromictic Glacial Lake. The topography
of the lake prevents mixing within the hypolimnion allowing accumulation of Hg. Samples were taken at meter

Volatilization of Haloacetic Acids in Swimming Pools: Effect of Temperature, Sunlight and Mixing
Erin McGovern, Chrisopher Melillo, Manhattan College
Swimming pools are typically disinfected with chlorine to make the water safe for use, however, these disinfectants
can react with organic matter to form a species of disinfection byproducts known as haloacetic acids (HAAs),
which are carcinogenic. HAAs can be removed from water since they are volatile compounds. Bench-scale studies
of pool water were conducted under varying temperature, sunlight and mixing conditions to determine the effects
of the environment on the volatilization of HAAs.
City Water Tunnel No. 3 is
the largest and longestrunning public works
project in NYC history.
A concrete-lined pressure
tunnel, City Water Tunnel No.
3 connects the system of reservoirs and aqueducts to the
city water mains and is built
200 to 800 feet underground.
In this photo, Stage 2 of the
four-stage tunnel will be

in the tunnel’s construction.

New York City’s New Collection Facilities SCADA System – Challenges and Successes
Frank Kulcsar, James Mueller, Anthony Maracic, NYC DEP; Vatche Minassian, ARCADIS
NYC DEP deployed a new citywide SCADA system to provide monitoring and reporting for the over one billion
gallons per day sewage collection and treatment system. Engineering challenges were considerable given the land
area and variety of facilities to be monitored. As the new system became operational and one year shakeout period
ended, the system and collected data is being used more and more as a management tool and to satisfy regulatory

Alex Kuhn
NYWEA Major Scholarship Spotlight
A
lex graduated in 2012 from SUNY Brockport with
a double major – Bachelor of Science degrees in
Physics and Water Resources – and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Environmental Geosciences at Michigan
State University.
Alex credits the NYWEA scholarship for enabling her
to pursue several research related activities throughout her undergraduate career. The generous support
helped offset costs so that she could focus on building
Alex Kuhn
2008 Major
her independent research skills beyond her coursework.
Scholarship Recipient
While at Brockport, Alex worked as a research assistant in the Water Resources Department, monitoring groundwater and surface
water interactions throughout Monroe County. This brought opportunities to travel
to regional meetings for presentations of her work, and was a large factor in
obtaining prestigious undergraduate research fellowships through the NSF for the
summers of 2010 and 2011. These research experiences were a key factor in her
decision and ability to pursue a graduate degree at a major university immediately
upon graduation.
Now at Michigan State, Alex is focused on applying her technical background
to use geophysical methods and modeling to better understand water dynamics
in the shallow subsurface. She is currently working on coupling hydrological and
geophysical models together to optimize root growth functions which will allow
better predictions of the impacts of changing land-use and climate. She says,
“This is a particularly exciting field of study because the exact nature of interactions between plants, soil and water are largely unknown. Critical zone hydrology
poses a challenge for researchers because of its difficulty to observe directly.
However, it is where many important chemical and physical exchanges take
place, making it necessary for evolving our understanding of the terrestrial water
cycle. My goal is to improve our knowledge of how different plants use water,
and to quantify how large-scale land-use changes will impact water budgets due
to changing evapotranspiration rates. Our ability to predict what will happen to
water as conditions change is absolutely imperative to inform smart and proactive
policies for protecting it as a resource for all.”
Upon completing her degree she hopes to continue a career using applied
geophysics to study water dynamics in the vadose zone as a research scientist
either in academia or industry. In her spare time, she enjoys playing with her dog,
knitting and exploring Michigan's beautiful Great Lakes. She credits the major
boost from NYWEA for helping her graduate debt free, and for encouraging her
interest in water resources. She is looking forward to giving back to the program
to help other students when they need it most.

Be A Leader & Help NYWEA’s Scholarship Program Grow
Matching Fund Pledge Form
Your contribution will help reinforce the foundation of the existing Scholarship Program. This is the third
phase of the program. Your pledge will be used dollar for dollar to solicit matching donations from members that have not contributed and will make their contributions go further.
This program is targeted to get as many new members as possible, so the matching funds will be used only
to match donations from new contributors. Also, the amount is limited to $20/year for five years to spread
the matching funds as far as possible. Matching fund contributors will be recognized uniquely by verbal
promotion at the upcoming Spring Meeting and printed recognition on the website and in Clear Waters
magazine.
We are looking for contributors to pledge at the $2,500 to $5,000 level – that is $500 to $1,000 per year for
five years to establish the matching fund.

EIGHTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL MEETING / 2015
The average American
uses 100 gallons of water
every day.
Good thing 100 million of
them are served by treatment
plants that rely on Emerson
automation solutions.
One hundred million Americans – that’s no drop in the bucket.
Emerson’s Ovation™ control and SCADA technology is helping
municipalities of all sizes meet the growing demand for clean,
safe, reliable water.
The operational and environmental benefits are significant –
higher productivity, lower costs, enhanced protection against
cyber security threats, and the flexibility to expand
and adapt to ever-changing regulatory requirements. Just a
few of the reasons why water and wastewater facilities across
the nation, including some of the country’s largest
metropolitan areas, rely on Emerson automation solutions.
