My understanding was they were looking at drought conditions, so if that's right then yes, the rain will be useful.

Approached the counter, correction, stalked up to the counter as i was grumpy as fuck. 'bags of ice, two, need reciept', i wasn't there to fuck spiders you see. Little indian girl behind the counter says 'we cannot do a reciept for that.' i snatch the money back and give her my best 'what the fuck look.' She smiles, 'just joking' i'm taken aback you understand, i'd stereotyped her as being the dry balls kind, but, i shake it off, nothings going to stop me from getting this ice. She puts the sale through and gives me 2 dollars change and remarks 'no reciept and no ice for you.' I should have been forewarned by her previous joke, but nay, i'm near raging, open my mouth to let off some hand picked cuss words and get another 'i'm only joking.'

I got fucking played by an indian girl working at a mobil. TWICE.

God damn.

Definitely no rain here, my boy up at the cape reports the same thing 'nah bro, my nuts are cooking'

At Bites - Nah, this was in the rei rei.

Pie, your hellameke site confuses me Had to resort to photobucket.

Quint's boss "Keep them turds on ice, Quint! If they get warm they'll smell worse! Here's an ice-cream container and some ice money. Bring back the change. Atta boy!"

Quint "Fuck my life."

lol.

If you don't chill down effluent the bacteria will continue to break down the organic matter in the effuent, this will in turn lower the oxygen demand of the sample which is the primary measurement of effluent strength.
More oxygen a sample uses over a period of time = more bacteria = more organic mass = more of the good stuff that is in the effluent.


But yea tommy, thats pretty much how shit went.

as for the hellameke, uploaded an image and then couldn't link to it, made me so very upset.

What happens to the poos after they're done with it? Do they flush it down the bog or maybe put poo samples in petri dishes and keep them in a poo archive? You should see if you can have the poo back once they've checked it all out.

How does the poo selection process go anyway? Do you just plunge a hand into the sewage and grab a fistful of shit? Or is it more like "Oh that looks like a nice big turd, all in one piece, quite plump actually"? How do you retrieve it? Are they usually floating? Do you have a butterfly net type of thing for fishing out the poo? Or do you have a fishing rod and you just cast a line until you hook a poo?

So many questions.

Poo once it reaches the WWTP is all in liquid form, stools swell up in water and disintegrate pretty rapidly with turbulence. To take a sample, you select what time you wish to sample, this time it was to sample the peak loading, which is usually between 9-12, everyone's morning shits and showers take about 3 hours to go from toilet bowl to treatment stage. I opted for 15min periods so i'd get a nice result. To retrieve the sample i normally opt to lower a bucket into the headworks prior to screening, i aim to dodge rags etc. as they arn't really appropriate.

After retrieving the bucket of effluent I take the S::CAN out of the headworks and mount it on some mounts (obviously, lol) I then clean it with 5-10% nitric acid to remove all the organics on the lens then zero calibrate the s;;can with de-ionized water. I then run the sample through the s;;can and take a finger print sample and make sure the TSSeq is in the range i'm after, today i wanted samples above 200mg/L TSSeq and above a CODeq of 400 mg/L. If the sample is between those ranges i then put some effluent into a 1L bottle, mark the finger print number and the time and date on it and put it on ice, in another container, 250mL, i also fill with effluent, in the smaller bottles I have some sulphuric acid which acts as an inhibitor.

I then continue sampling until i've got a range i'm happy with, i try to capture some effluent which comes in from the sucker trucks as well, this is usually in the vicinity of 2500-3000 mg/L, potent stuff, its good to have these measurements as they show the shock loading that the plant undergoes at regular stages.

Once the lab has finished doing its tests on it, we can map it and have a very accurate portrait of what the treatment plant has to deal with, this helps with chemical dosing and what not, but in this case, we can then sample the effluent post treatment and compare the results and the performance of the plant, so we can then make a educated choice on where money would be best spent to get the effluent to a better treated quality.

The effluent is destroyed after the tests.

I hope this helps.

So you don't fish out any logs? Man, that's totally ruined the image I had of you sitting on the bank of the poo pond, a makeshift fishing line tied to your big toe with the other end cast out deep in the mucky water. You'd be leaning back looking at the clouds, a piece of straw between your teeth...


And you say there's never any floaties? Never? Ever? EVER?

Dude, pillow-fights attract girls, often hot ones.

pretty sure I've got a textbook on Wastewater treatment in the garage somewhere - not sure the author or the edition - it's from ~92-94 - your's if I can find it and you're ever in Welly....

Sweet! Where abouts are you? I'm big into my waste water, fascinating stuff, that and stormwater, but unfortunately NZ doesn't treat stormwater with the respect it deserves and we complain about flooding *rolls eyes* not to mention the havoc our CSOs cause on the treatment process.... but anyway if your not far out of town I could get someone to pick it up.

in Johnsonville - I had a quick look in the garage this morning, but couldn't initially find it....
But we've got boxes of crap (not literally - don't get excited!) that need disposing of, so might be in those.

From memory, it's something like "Fundamentals (or principles) of wastewater treatment (or management)"

No rush man, when it turns up, i'll be here.

Those 'basics' books, especially the older ones have some really solid principles which aren't really taught these days. I have quite a few text books from the 80s and they have really solid ideas on pasaveer channels and wisconsin mounds, which although are archaic by todays standards are still used by quite a few on-site and cluster treatment stations, which you have a fair few of in northland. Never throw away text books!
