The oil, mining, and tourism industries in the United States and Canada face intense levels of public and regulatory scrutiny.  Lifewater’s ExtremeSTP® wastewater treatment plants provide:

  • High effluent quality
  • Satisfies all discharge requirements
  • Easy transport
  • Easy installation
  • SCADA system for remote monitoring via Internet or mounted Satellite dish
  • Real time operational assistance and training via remote communication 
  • Certified operator oversight
  • State certification plan for your operator
  • Time and money savings over the life of our systems

 
Portable Systems (seasonal or year-around)

Man Camps, Drill Rigs, Disaster Relief                                                                                                                                             

 

Lifewater’s portable systems are suitable for camps including those used for mineral exploration, ice road construction, oil/gas exploration drilling, road construction or maintenance, spill cleanup, environmental remediation, etc.

 
Our portable sewage treatment plants use sidestream, tubular, cross-flow, polymeric, membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment technology, which offers the following advantages:

 

  • Small footprint
  • The membranes are resistant to damage by the vibrations and shocks during transport
  • The membranes are inside pipes with no need to handle dirty membranes
  • Winterization for storage in freezing temperatures is easy and requires very little antifreeze
  • Startup and shutdown are simple
  • All operation and service activities can be performed within the protection of the enclosure (typically a standard height, 20 or 40-foot long shipping container). No through-the-roof access is required. No double-stacking of containers is required

 
Non-portable Systems

Hotels, Remote Lodges, Subdivisions, Apartment Buildings

 
For non-portable treatment plants we use the best treatment technology for your application whether it is an oil production facility, operating mine, tourist accommodation, fishing lodge, church, village, subdivision, apartment building, etc. Many technologies are possible but the ones that we typically choose from include:

 

    Submerged fixed film activated sludge (sometimes followed by a polishing filter)

  • low energy use
  • very simple technology to operate and maintain

 

    Immersed, ceramic flat plate MBRs

  • 20-year life (projected)
  • low energy use
  • not damaged by drying out after use
  • once dry they can be allowed to freeze without damage, hence winterization and long term storage are simple
    can withstand backpressure for cleaning
  • very resistant to nearly all chemicals and heat, making them suitable to use in industrial applications and allowing more  options for cleaning the membranes

 

     Immersed, polymeric flat plate MBRs

  • low energy use
  • relatively lightweight

 

     Sidestream, cross-flow, polymeric tubular MBRs

  • small footprint
  • the membranes are resistant to damage by the vibrations and shocks during transport
  • the membranes are inside pipes with no need to handle dirty membranes
  • winterization for storage in freezing temperatures is easy and requires very little antifreeze
  • startup and shutdown are simple
  • all operation and service activities can be performed within the protection of the enclosure (typically a standard height, 20 or 40-foot long shipping container). No through-the-roof access is required. No double-stacking of containers is required.

 
All of these technologies can be manufactured in various configurations, including inside shipping containers to facilitate transport to a site. Larger systems (tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or several million gallons per day) can be placed inside a heated building. Summer use only systems can be used outdoors in uninsulated configurations.
