1.0 Introduction
1.1 Purpose
This document establishes the requirements for the Design Consultant to prepare a
Commissioning Plan for the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District (District)
EchoWater Project. The Commissioning Plan shall be developed by the Design Consultant in
an effort to plan, organize, and document commissioning activities. Inclusion of the
Commissioning Plan with the Contract Documents shall provide Contractor awareness of the
level of effort the District requires to implement and document equipment and system
preparedness. The Commissioning Plan shall be included as an appendix to the Technical
Specifications (Specifications), Section 01 91 00 Commissioning.
Due to the magnitude of the EchoWater Project, separate contracts shall be awarded for various
portions of the project. During the project lifecycle, coordination between the various Design
Consultants and District staff will be critical for ensuring cohesion amongst the various
projects Commissioning Plans.
1.2 Relationship with Other District Design Standards
This document is one in a suite of District Design Standards (Standards). These Standards are
created and maintained to provide consistency and efficiency among design projects within the
District. The Standards clearly document requirements, issues, decisions, products, procedures,
etc., that have been widely agreed upon by District staff. The documents comprising the
Standards include:
Design Contract Requirements Presents the content requirements for contract
documents prepared for design projects.
Design Guidelines Describes discipline-specific District design preferences above
and beyond applicable codes and standards.
Guide Specifications A library of technical specifications available for project use.

2.0 Commissioning
2.1 General
Commissioning is the final stage of the project life cycle in which the objective is to validate
the performance of the new equipment/systems/processes per the design intent and the required
service levels of the District. In addition, District staff classroom and field training are provided
by the equipment vendors and the Design Consultant to prepare them to operate and maintain
the facilities.
2.2 Description
Commissioning shall consist of the following stages:
Pre-Commissioning: Includes pre-operational testing of the completed structural,
mechanical/HVAC, electrical, instrumentation and control systems as defined in the
Specifications. Pre-operational testing includes activities such as structural leakage
tests, cycling valves, pipe system pressure and leakage tests, instrument calibration, loop
testing, control and logic testing, NETA tests, manufacturer installation certifications,
etc. The objective of Pre-Commissioning shall be to confirm the equipments readiness
to operate as a system.
Clean Water Commissioning: Functional acceptance testing of the hardware and
software to verify all PLC control narratives, PCCS control strategies, and interaction
with other new or existing systems. In conjunction with the system testing, loops shall
be tuned to obtain the desired process control response and individual equipment
performance tests shall be conducted to confirm operational parameters as defined in the
Specifications. District staff training from the Contractor and Design Consultant is also
provided during this stage.
Startup: Reliability acceptance testing of the integrated facility to demonstrate the
continuous and reliable operation of the equipment and systems under normal process
water conditions. This stage includes shutdowns and tie-ins to the existing plant
processes, seeding the biological process (if required), process optimization, additional
loop tuning, and individual equipment performance tests requiring process water.
Activation: Initiated after granting the Contractor substantial completion. District O&M
staff assumes control of the facility/site and the warranty period begins after releasing
Notice of Field Acceptance to the Contractor. This stage includes completion of the
Contractors punch list items, process optimization, and plant wide optimization.
Each stage of commissioning must be completed, witnessed, and documented to the satisfaction
of the District before initiating the next stage of commissioning. At the minimum, the
commissioning stages and associated tests, tasks, and deliverables are presented in Table 2-1.

3.1 Overview
The Design Consultant shall provide an introduction to the Commissioning Plan and a
description of the facility/project. The Contractor shall include a section detailing safety
requirements that must be complied with during commissioning. This shall include, but not be
limited to, quality control and safety procedures, proper personal protective equipment, lock-
out/tag-out procedures, and other District safety requirements.
3.1.1 Data Management System and Document Control
The Districts PMO shall be responsible for maintaining a data management and document
control system (PMWeb) for commissioning activities. This includes the collection of test
plans, procedures, test forms, checklists, worksheets, and test results required for and resulting
from commissioning test activities. The objective of this system is to provide an organized and
efficient approach for tracking the progression of equipment/system test activities, collecting

data, reviewing and approving commissioning test results and deliverables, and ultimately
transferring select data to the Districts Computerized Maintenance Management System
(CMMS).
The Design Consultant shall be responsible for preparing the framework of the commissioning
testing database within PMWeb. This involves identifying the association with an asset-type
(i.e. pump, modulating electric control valve, magnetic flow meter, etc.) and its respective test
activities per the requirements of the Specifications. For example, the associated tests for a
mixed liquor pump shall include: FDT, delivery inspection acceptance, pre-operational tests,
manufacturers installation certification, and PATs (mechanical, vibration, and noise) for clean
and process water operating conditions. This database will serve as the starting point for
managing and tracking the flow of data, documents, and testing during commissioning. The
preliminary framework of the database shall be included with Design Submittal No. 2 (DS-2).
The final framework of the database shall be included with DS-3. Prior to construction, assets
(by equipment tag numbers) from the BIM models will be extracted and uploaded to PMWeb
(by the PMO) where the assets will be automatically assigned (based on asset-type) to the
framework of the database. The intent shall be to develop a process within PMWeb where the
selection of an individual asset lists all the associated tests and provides the electronic test
forms for the Contractor to document all the test results.
3.2 Testing
As part of the Commissioning Plan, the Design Consultant shall develop FAT, PAT, and RAT
test plans and procedures. These test plans and procedures detail the coordinated, sequential
testing of each system component and piece of controlled equipment installed under the
Contract. Test plans and procedures shall identify, by system and specific tag number, each
device or control station to be manipulated or observed during the test procedure and the
specific results to be observed or obtained. Test plans also shall be specific as to the support
systems required to complete the test work, temporary systems required during the test work
(including any temporary construction needed for testing), representatives to be present, and
expected test duration.

taken for preparation and implementation. For some systems, procedures for two or more
FATs shall be run sequentially and/or simultaneously in order to demonstrate overall
process area control strategy interaction and record how each system works in conjunction
with the other. In such a case, the procedures shall clearly walk the testing participants
through the correct FAT and procedure numbers.
Valve, equipment, and instrumentation lineup tables shall be provided for each system test
plan where testing could impact other process or support systems. These systems may be
incomplete or in cases where flow paths or equipment operation must be arranged at other
systems to complete the testing. A pre-test walkthrough shall be conducted to confirm
proper valve position and equipment set-up before the test is started. This walkthrough also
familiarizes testing participants with the systems and allows them to verify proper tagging
and equipment identification.
Procedures
At a minimum, the test plans shall include staffing for each test identifying roles and
responsibilities and procedures clearly stating or listing test objectives, test descriptions,
acceptance criteria required to release equipment and systems for commissioning, test
forms, and checklists/worksheets to be used to control and document the required tests.

Consultant for the systematic testing of all equipment and systems to duplicate, as closely
as possible, operating conditions described in the Contract Documents.
By the time a system is ready for the FAT, its major equipment shall have already been
checked out during Pre-Commissioning. The FAT shall include testing of the equipment in
REMOTE/AUTOMATIC mode where in some cases more than one piece of equipment
runs together as part of a semi or fully automatic system. The FAT shall demonstrate that
each system and equipment function as required per its related control strategies. Failure
mode scenarios such as equipment, instrument, power, and process failures shall be
simulated to validate the appropriate system response. The control strategies identify which
equipment can run in REMOTE/AUTOMATIC, REMOTE/MANUAL, and/or
LOCAL/MANUAL modes and how the system instrumentation is used in conjunction with
the controls. All operating modes and conditions identified in the control strategies shall be
tested.
Local protective, hard-wired interlocks provided in local control panel relay logic and
software protective interlocks programmed into the PLC and/or PCCS software shall be
identified for each system in the FAT overview section. Each interlock will require being
successfully demonstrated to verify proper function and alarm indication. These interlocks
shall be put in place to shutdown equipment during abnormal conditions to protect the
systems from catastrophic failure and/or the equipment from permanent damage.

(acceptance criteria), and test descriptions. The PAT shall provide step-by-step descriptions of
the procedures proposed by the Design Consultant for the systematic testing of all equipment to
duplicate, as closely as possible, operating conditions described in the Contract Documents.
The Design Consultant shall prepare PAT procedures for individual equipment to include the
measurement of all operating parameters as specified in the appropriate equipment specification
section and identify the criteria (per the Specifications) that define a successful performance
test. The successful completion of a PAT occurs after the verification of the operating
parameters per the design intent and are not contingent on a continuous operating period. The
Specifications shall also include the required PAT test forms to document the test results.
Examples of pump PAT test forms are provided in Appendix A.
Pumps, Motor, and VFDs
Tests on pumps, motors, and VFDs shall be conducted to verify pump performance and
operation over the full range of flows. Equipment shall be operated to observe and record
operating and performance characteristics. Vibration, noise, temperature, amperage draw,
flow pressure, and other miscellaneous operating data shall be collected for each piece of
motorized equipment. For some equipment, this data shall be collected with the equipment
operating in up to four different conditions created by adjusting speed or a downstream
valve to create a backpressure. The data collected for a single equipment item is compared
with what is shown in its manufacturers literature. In addition to collecting the data
described above, settings for variable frequency drives, cooling water control, seal water
control and/or other auxiliaries shall be adjusted and readied for proper operation for the
various equipment items.
At a minimum, mechanical equipment requiring a PAT includes items such as pumps,
blowers/air handling units, valves greater than 48-inches, etc. These tests shall be
completed during the FATs and possibly repeated during the RATs, dependent on the

the PATs during the FATs and RATs shall be included within the required continuous
operation period.
This testing may require temporary piping or facilities that the Design Consultant shall
design and include with the Contract Documents. The Contractor shall furnish, install,
remove when done, and store temporary piping or facilities on site at a location designated
by the District. Any equipment damaged during testing shall be replaced (at the expense of
the Contractor) unless the equipment is intended only for testing, and not normal operations
after the project is completed. The test piping shall include the following key components:
1. The piping connection shall include a flow metering device. The flow metering device
may be an orifice plate, insertion mag meter, or other device proposed by the
Contractor and accepted by the District/Design Consultant.
2. The piping shall include a throttling valve that creates a backpressure on the pumps to
simulate the full and reduced speed head operating range of the pumps.
3. The piping connection shall include necessary pipeline appurtenances such as air
release and vacuum relief valves, isolation valves, drains, and instrumentation. All
appurtenances shall be coated equivalent to requirements for similar permanent
systems or components.
The PAT test results shall be reviewed by the Design Consultant while the PATs shall be
witnessed and approved by District O&M/PMO. After the successful completion of Clean
Water Commissioning tests, tasks, and District acceptance of deliverables, the District shall

FUNCTIONAL ACCEPTANCE TEST

1.1 OVERVIEW
A. The purpose of the Functional Acceptance Test (FAT) is to demonstrate to the District that both
the software and hardware installed under this Contract is performing as specified. The test is
performed with the equipment in service using plant water (secondary effluent). The FAT is a
combined effort between the District and the CONTRACTOR. The tests will require coordination
with Operations to ensure normal processing is not disrupted. An District maintenance person
should be present when flow is sent to other facilities in the Plant.
B. Each DAFT tank will be fully commissioned from start to finish, (IAT, FAT, and RAT), before
proceeding to the next DAFT. This schedule will be based on work sequencing as discussed in
the Contract Documents.

1.2 TEST PROTOCOL
A. The combined software/hardware system is tested from this point forward. The test is performed
with equipment in service under normal operating conditions, and extreme design conditions
(max and min), to the extent that test conditions allow. The purpose of the test is to ensure that
the PLC and Operator Graphics software configuration is working in conjunction with the
hardware and plant as intended.
B. Equipment will operate with plant water. Application software problems encountered during the
test will be investigated and corrected by the CONTRACTOR. Problems with PLC and/or PCCS
software programming done by the District, will be corrected by the District. The CONTRACTOR
shall provide a qualified person familiar with the installation and trouble-shooting of PLC panels,
working full time, under the direction of the Commissioning Coordinator, for the duration of the
test. Prior to the test the CONTRACTOR shall submit a written FAT procedure, prepared by the
Commissioning Coordinator, to the District for approval. The Districts approval of the procedure
prior to the start of the FAT is required.
C. Alarms and interlocks are simulated in the field by activating the final element (sensor) or where
this is not possible, by simulating the test condition at field terminals as close as possible to the
final element. Calibration checks completed for the IAT will not be repeated.
1.3 COMPONENTS

Part 1 Saturation System. This test will check proper operation of all saturation
system equipment, including the back pressure control valve, recycle pumps, air
control panels, compressors and all associated valves and interlocks.

Part 2 Feed Sludge System. This test will check proper operation of the influent
sludge system valves, including flowmeters and all associated valves and
interlocks.

Part 3 DAFT Collection Equipment. This test will check proper operation of the
collector unit equipment, including the DAFT drive unit mechanism, bottom
sludge and float collector arms, underflow system comprising the underflow weirs
and gates and all associated valves and interlocks.

Part 4 Thickened Sludge System. This test will check proper operation of the TWAS
pumps, thickened sludge discharge force main flowmeter, including all
associated valves, level controls and interlocks.

Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades FAT - DAFTs-2
Part 5 Power Loss Simulation. This test will ensure back up power comes online
successfully and to ensure all system components reset themselves and come
back online ready for operation.

1.4 TEST PROCEDURE
A. Following is a general procedure for conducting the FAT for the DAFT process areas:
1. Close the following valves:
a. DAFT feed sludge valves
b. Recycle pump suction and discharge valves
c. Verify all valves are closed on the TWAS, saturation system, and polymer piping
2. Open the following gates:
a. Open the underflow box effluent gate to allow underflow to flow to PEPS (applicable
for DAFTs A, B, and C) or to the WSSPS (applicable to DAFT D).
3. Open the following valves:
a. Back Pressure valve (on top of DAFT tank) unit fully open
4. Fill the DAFT tank with secondary effluent to prepare for the startup.
a. The water to be used for Part 1 of the FAT will be back fed from the secondary
effluent piping into the recycle piping as part of the permanent design as shown on
the Contract Drawings. This will require the normally closed secondary effluent valve
to be opened along with the recycle sump isolation valve. The recycle pump suction
valve and all other recycle suction valves shall be closed to route the secondary
effluent to the recycle sump being commissioned. The secondary effluent will fill the
recycle sumps and back feed into the submerged launder filling the DAFT tank.
b. The secondary effluent valve will be shut off once a DAFT liquid level elevation of
11.5 has been reached.
c. Temporary secondary effluent piping will connect to the influent WAS feed piping
upstream of the motorized feed valve and downstream of the manifold isolation valve
corresponding to the DAFT being commissioned. This will serve as the process fluid
for Part 2 of FAT testing and for the duration of the FAT. See Note 6 of Attachment 1
for temporary piping layout.
d. Note that it will be required to maintain a chlorine residual between 1 and 2 parts per
million in the process fluid used during the FAT period. Contractor shall be required
to add bleach or chlorine tablets as necessary to achieve the desired concentration.

RELIABILITY ACCEPTANCE TEST


Following completion of the FAT, the CONTRACTOR shall be allowed to proceed with the Reliability
Acceptance Test (RAT) phase of testing.

DAFT C will be the first DAFT to undergo a RAT and the duration will be 45 days, for each
subsequent DAFT a 21 day RAT will be required. CONTRACTOR shall be required to
perform all work described under the RAT phase of commissioning for the number of days
specified above, or until successful completion of the continuous 7 day operation
requirement, whichever is longer. Monitoring requirements and schedule for the 7 day
continuous operating test are specified at the end of this RAT document.

If process acclimation and the 7 days of continuous operation requirement are completed in
less than 21 or 45 calendar days, duration depending on which DAFT is undergoing the RAT,
CONTRACTOR shall continue with work described under the RAT phase for the full duration
of the calendar period.

If the process acclimation and the 7 days of continuous operation requirement is not
completed after full duration of the calendar period, CONTRACTOR shall continue to perform
all work described under the RAT phase until the RAT has been accepted as complete, with
no limit on the time period required to complete the RAT, and with no additional
compensation.

Reliability Acceptance Test (RAT) shall be performed on behalf of the CONTRACTOR by the
Commissioning Coordinator after the FAT is completed and accepted.

Constraints: To the extent practical, during the RAT the plant shall be operated at average dry weather
flow conditions during night time hours, and all abnormal, maximum and minimum flow conditions shall be
tested during daylight hours.

Procedure: The DAFT sludge feed consists of waste sludge (WS), scum (S), and waste activated sludge
(WAS). The sludge feed system must be operational before the DAFT process can be started. Each
DAFT tank will be fully commissioned from start to finish before proceeding to the next DAFT. This
schedule will be based on work sequencing as discussed in the Contract Documents.

The DAFT tank will be filled with secondary effluent to prepare for the startup. The water will be back fed
from the secondary effluent piping into the pressurization piping as shown on the Contract Drawings. This
will require the normally closed secondary effluent valve to be opened and all recycle pump suction
valves to be closed. The secondary effluent will fill the recycle sumps and back feed into the submerged
launder filling the DAFT tank. The water level should be maintained by the underflow weir gate located in
the underflow box. The secondary effluent valve will be shut off once a DAFT liquid level elevation of
11.5 has been reached.

Once the water level is maintained and the SE valve is shut off, one (1) saturation system consisting of a
recycle pump and saturation tank will be started. A summary of the startup procedure is as follows.
Detailed steps can be found in the startup activities table below.

1. Begin polymer batching 45 minutes prior to startup to allow proper aging
2. Startup the DAFT collector mechanism
3. Fully open back pressure control valve from top of DAFT tank
4. Startup air compressor system
5. Startup recycle pump

Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
EchoWater Project
Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades RAT - DAFTs-2
6. Adjust air panel valves, pump discharge valve, saturation tank inlet valve and back pressure
valve as needed to maintain optimum pressure of ~70 psi in the saturation tank and a well-
balanced water level variation (always maintain level within magnetic indicator range) in the
saturation tank
7. Begin feeding polymer to the polymer ring
Note: Contractor shall test the polymer feed pumps and flow meters per Polymer RAT
requirements during the corresponding DAFT RAT. If the corresponding DAFT completed its RAT
prior to polymer system commissioning the Contractor shall make arrangements to have the
DAFT in operation for the purpose of the polymer feed pump and flowmeter testing.
8. Begin influent sludge flow to DAFT by opening the corresponding DAFT feed valve
9. Startup the TWAS pumps

All monitoring points (flows, pressures, etc.) should be checked and recorded on RAT daily process
control data sheets by the CONTRACTOR during the commissioning period.


Prior to initiation of testing as specified on log sheets CONTRACTOR shall set up and perform a valve
checklist to ensure equipment is ready to be tested. Checklist shall verify all procedures in the startup
activity table have been performed.

Startup Activity

1.
Verify all required operational tests of mechanical and electrical systems have been
successfully performed.


2.
Ensure the following slide gates and valves are in the proper position for operation of
DAFT before startup:
A. DAFT feed sludge valves closed
B. Back Pressure valve (on top of DAFT tank) unit fully open
C. Recycle pump suction and discharge valves closed
D. Underflow box effluent gate is open


3.
Verify all valves are closed on the TWAS, saturation system, and polymer piping.
4.
Start polymer batching of the permanent polymer system if polymer commissioning has
been completed. Otherwise use the temporary polymer system for the purpose of
conducting the DAFT RAT:
Note: Contractor shall test the polymer feed pumps and corresponding flowmeters per
Polymer RAT requirements during the corresponding DAFT RAT if not already done so
during the Polymer RAT.


5. Open SE valve and recycle sump isolation valve in order to back feed SE from
pressurization piping into the submerged launder and fill DAFT tank
6. Startup the DAFT collector mechanism at 50% of full speed

7. Verify the water level is maintained by the automated underflow weir in the underflow box

Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
EchoWater Project
Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades RAT - DAFTs-3
8.

Startup Saturation System
A. Fully open all valves on air panel except compressed air line
B. Confirm back pressure valve is fully open
C. Open isolation valve on pump suction piping and allow SE to flow through the
pump
D. Bleed air from the pump and suction piping
E. Open pump discharge valve and bump pump to charge line
F. Close discharge valve
G. Start up the air compressor
H. Open compressed air valve on air panel. Confirm air compressor is producing a
minimum air pressure of 100 psi and that the outlet PRV on the air panel is set to
at least 70 psig
I. Bring saturator to operating pressure with compressed air
J . Set nitrogen purge at _3_ cfm
K. Ensure water level in saturator is visible but at a low position
L. Start the pump and immediately open discharge valve (regulate if required for
BEP)
M. Recirculation seal water flow to recycle pump will automatically initiate at this
point.
N. Open saturator tank discharge isolation valve regulate to maintain water level at
mid-point
O. Observe pressure in saturation tank and adjust conditions to maintain a tank
pressure of about 70 psi by gradually opening the back pressure valve to
decrease tank pressure and gradually closing the back pressure valve to increase
tank pressure while continuing to gradually open the saturator tank discharge
isolation valve
P. Be sure to check pump operating pressure (make sure in range of BEP). Note
pump design flow and pressure is 1,344 gpm @ 178 feet. This will be an iterative
process of closing the back pressure valve and opening the saturator discharge
valve.
Q. Maintain the water level in the saturation tank within the low and high water levels
as indicated by the magnetic level indicator by purging the nitrogen and setting
the solenoid valve in Auto. It is important not to attempt to adjust the
operating pressure while the water level is being depressed or raised.
R. Observe and verify that the saturation tank level is maintained. The solenoid
valve should open and close at the specified set points and the water level should
rise after the solenoid valve opens and drop after the solenoid valve closes.

9. Ensure polymer feed flow is flow paced based on the influent solids loading

10. Set polymer dilution water flow to 10 gpm on the pump skid rotameter

11. Open/Close valves as necessary to route the combined WAS/WS feed sludge to the
DAFTs

12. Open corresponding DAFT feed sludge valves

13. Open TWAS pump suction and discharge valves. Startup the TWAS pump once float
begins to collect in the TWAS sump if not already set in Auto mode

14. Begin sampling and monitoring the process control parameters (described in RAT
Process Control Data Sheets) every 3-4 hours for the duration of the commissioning
period.

Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades RAT - DAFTs-4
7 Day Continuous Operating Test: After the startup activities have been successfully
completed, determine whether facilities and equipment are operating satisfactorily in a steady
state to allow start of 7-day test. Make adjustments as necessary before the start of the 7 day
testing period.

1. Starting on Day 1 operate the DAFT at the annual average combined sludge flow of 1.54
MGD. Continue operating at this flow for all of Days 2, and 7 along with the night-shifts of
Days 3, 4, 5, and 6. Flow adjustments can be achieved by throttling the motorized DAFT feed
valve via CRISP. The entire DAFT system shall be performance tested by the Contractor to
ensure correct operation as one complete functioning unit, including all DAFT related mechanical
and electrical systems not limited to liquid and solids pumps, sludge collection systems, underflow
gates, saturation systems, polymer systems, and foul air systems.

2. Float is collected from the DAFT tank liquid surface by the rotating DAFT basin sweep. The
DAFT basin sweep is rotated in the DAFT tank by a variable speed drive. By adjusting the
speed of the basin sweep and/or the run duration and frequency of the sweep operation the
operator may control how quickly the float is removed from the DAFT tank water surface and
therefore the thickness of the float layer. Basin sweep operation in combination with other
aspects of the process such as polymer dosage and water level are used to optimize the
DAFT operation Control Strategy: The DAFT basin sweep speed and run duration is selected
by the operator to obtain the desired sludge thickness. It is expected that a changes in DAFT
drive speed and run duration would be made only when there are significant changes in
sludge flow. Verify all system components are functioning properly in both local and remote
modes of operation.

3. The recycle pump corresponding to the DAFT system being tested shall be operated across a
range of flows after the initial saturation system adjustments are made as described above.
Standby recycle pumps designed to feed the DAFT being commissioned shall also be tested
for no less than 25% of the time during the 7 day continuous operating test. The recycle
pumps have been selected for a design flow of 1,344 gpm to provide a saturation tank
pressure of 70 psig. Higher tank pressures and hence lower recycle flows can be achieved by
gradually closing the back pressure valve if this is desired for producing better sludge
thickening capabilities. The same principal applies to reducing saturation tank pressure which
is achieved by gradually opening the back pressure valve and fully opening all isolation valves
in the system. Saturation tank pressures should be operated between 65 and 75 psig to find
optimum sludge thickening conditions. Once the optimum setting has been found the recycle
pumps should be held at a constant flowrate and pressure while keeping as close as possible
to the pumps best efficiency point, as determined by the selected pump curve. Peak air flow
into the saturation system is designed for 45 scfm. This parameter shall be adjusted via the air
control panel to provide the necessary air saturation. Verify all components of the saturation
system are functioning properly in both local and remote modes of operation.

4. The lead and lag TWAS pumps corresponding to the DAFT system being tested shall be run
based on the preset control strategy programmed into the PLC. The lead pump will start after
the level in the TWAS sump reaches a predetermined setpoint. The TWAS pumps are positive
displacement constant speed units each with a capacity of 345 gpm. For the purpose of the
RAT each of the two pumps corresponding to the DAFT being commissioned will be tested to
verify proper operation and flow capacity. This may require alternating the lead and lag
designations of each pump to ensure adequate testing of each unit. In addition, one pump
each from two TWAS sumps (two pumps total) shall be operated concurrently to monitor flow
and pressure performance under maximum flow conditions. This shall take place during DAFT
B commissioning with TWAS Pump B1 or B2 and TWAS Pump C1 or C2 and during DAFT D
commissioning with TWAS Pump D1 or D2 and TWAS Pump A1 or A2.

Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
EchoWater Project
Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades RAT - DAFTs-5

5. The underflow weir gate shall control the liquid level in the DAFT tank. Liquid level in the
DAFT is determined by the DAFT tank bubbler panel. Ensure correct operation of the
pneumatically operated weir gate through its entire range of motion. The weir gate should then
be set at the elevation which results in accumulation of float at a depth of six inches above the
leading edge of the beach. This set point should be further adjusted based on optimum liquid
level as determined by sludge thickness testing.
6. During the day-shift of Days 3, 4, 5, and 6 the DAFT will be operated at design peak day flow
of 2.03 MGD. The Contractor shall make arrangements with Sanitation District O&M to
achieve peak flow conditions. This may require taking other DAFTs offline to compensate for
the increased flows. The entire sludge remover mechanism shall be performance tested by the
Contractor. At the peak design solids loading the collectors shall be operated to maintain a
constant float level. If the sludge builds up faster than it can be removed at maximum collector
speed, the test shall be considered a failure and the Contractor will be required to remedy the
problem. The DAFT unit manufacturer shall then provide advice on the proper adjustments to the
equipment as necessary to achieve the specified performance requirements and goals.
Adjustments shall include influent feedwell weir elevations, depth of submergence of float
collection skimmers, collector speed, number of float collectors in service, number of saturation
tanks in service, underflow weir gate level and back pressure control valve settings along with all
other adjustments referenced in this document and the contract documents. Contractor shall
demonstrate these adjustments along with all other adjustments and requirements as described
herein and in the contract documents.
Power Loss Simulation Testing:
Power loss simulation testing shall be conducted after the conclusion of the 7 day continuous
operating test but before the RAT calendar period expires.
Note: All non-DAFT system loads at the MCC shall be locked out prior to power loss
simulation testing.
1. Turn off feeder breaker for DAFT MCC at switchgear SWGR-BC. Monitor to confirm that
status signals from the DAFT system are available at the SCADA powered by the UPS.
2. Turn on feeder breaker for DAFT MCC at switchgear SWGR-BC. Monitor to confirm that
status and alarm signals are reset and ready to operate.

RELIABILITY ACCEPTANCE TEST


Following completion of the FAT, the CONTRACTOR shall be allowed to proceed with the Reliability
Acceptance Test (RAT) phase of testing.

1. For each digester CONTRACTOR shall be required to perform all work described under
the RAT phase of commissioning for a total of 45 days, or until successful completion of
20 days of continuous Active Mode operation requirement and 10 days of Holding Mode
operation, whichever is longer.
a. If the 20-day continuous Active Mode operation requirement and the 10-day Holding
Mode requirement are completed in less than 45 calendar days, CONTRACTOR
shall continue with work described under the RAT phase until the 45 calendar day
period is completed.
b. If the continuous operation requirements for a digester are not completed after 45
calendar days, CONTRACTOR shall continue to perform all work described under
the RAT phase until the RAT has been accepted as complete, with no limit on the
time period required to complete the RAT for that digester, and with no additional
compensation.
Reliability Acceptance Test (RAT) shall be performed on behalf of the CONTRACTOR by the
Commissioning Coordinator for a digester after the FAT for that digester is completed and accepted.

Assumption(s): Plant staff will oversee the transfer of sludge from one of the operating digesters to
the digester that is undergoing the RAT. The text below assumes that Digester I will be the first to
undergo its Active Mode RAT then content of Digester I transferred to Digester J for its Active Mode
RAT. The Digester I Holding Mode RAT can proceed concurrently with the Digester J Active Mode
RAT.

Constraints: During the RAT the plant shall be operated at average flow conditions during night time
hours, and all abnormal, maximum and minimum flow conditions shall be tested during daylight
hours.

Procedure: The Digester RAT will be in two parts for each digester. The first set of tests will be for
Active Mode and the second for Holding Mode.

Active Mode. The digester will be filled with digested sludge by District staff, then normal feeding of
sludge will begin the RAT. Active Mode digester overflows are passive. The digester sludge feed
consists of Primary Sludge (PS) and Thickened Waste Activated sludge (TWAS). At least two DAFTs
must be operational before the digester Active Mode RAT can be started.

The Active Mode startup procedure outline will be as follows:

1. Start the hot water pump
2. Start the grinder
3. Start the recirculation pump
4. Start the mixing pump
5. Place the feed valves in Remote

Holding Mode. The digester will be fed using the Booster Pump installed in this project. Transfer
from the Holding Mode digester to the dewatering process will be done via the Transfer Pump(s).

General. District staff will fill the digester with sludge from an operational digester to prepare for the
Active Mode startup. This will occur over a two week period following completion of that digesters
Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
EchoWater Project
Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades RAT - DIGESTERS-2
FAT. Following this period the CONTRACTOR will take responsibility of the digester for the duration
of the RAT, for both Active and Holding Mode.

Once the digester is filled, the Active Mode startup procedure can commence. One (1) digester
system in Active Mode consists of digester feed, heating / recirculation, and mixing. In the Holding
Mode, the recirculation pump and hot water pump will be inactive and the booster pump and transfer
pump will be employed.


Detailed Startup steps are shown in the table below. All monitoring points (flows, pressures, etc.)
should be checked during this startup sequence.

20 Day Active Mode Test: After the startup, determine whether facilities and equipment are
operating satisfactorily to allow start of 20-day Active Mode test. Make adjustments as necessary.

1. Starting on Day 1 of the 20-day Active Mode RAT operate the Digester I in Active Mode.
Check the following:
a. Record the suction and discharge pressure gages for the following pumps:
i. Recirculation pump
ii. Mixing pump
b. Record the following temperatures at the Heat Exchanger
i. Sludge In (into Heat Exchanger)
ii. Sludge Out (out of Heat Exchanger)
iii. Hot Water In (into Heat Exchanger)
iv. Hot Water Out (out of Heat Exchanger)
c. Record the position of the 3 way valve

2. Complete the 20-day Active Mode RAT
3. Power Loss Simulation Testing Power loss simulation testing shall be conducted at the
conclusion of the 20-day active mode test, but before the start of the holding mode. NOTE:
all non-Digester system loads at the MCC shall be locked out prior to power loss simulation
testing.
a. Turn off feeder breaker for the Digester MCC-SHC at switchgear SWGR-DCSL.
Confirm that the status signals from the Digester area are available at the
SCADA powered by the UPS.
b. Turn on feeder breaker for the Digester MCC-SHC at switchgear SWGR-DCSL.
Confirm that the status and alarms are reset and ready to operate.
4. Set the Digester I feed valves (PS and TWAS) to Close (either Local or Remote) and
coordinate with plant staff to change Digester I from Active to Holding Mode at a CRISP
station. District staff may require up to one full working day to make this change.

10-Day Holding Mode Test: Once the 20-day Active Mode RAT has been completed, the 10-
Day Holding test for Digester I may begin.

1. Verify Digester J is empty or nearly empty.
2. Starting on Day 1 open and close valves to permit gravity transfer of the sludge from Digester
I to Digester J .
3. Allow the transfer to occur by gravity until the levels in the two digesters are nearly equal.
4. Open and close valves to permit the Digester I Transfer Pump to pump to Digester J .
5. Start the Digester I Transfer Pump at 50% speed.
6. Each day-shift hour, record the speed of the transfer pump, flow meter reading, level in each
of the two digesters, suction & discharge pressure gage readings. Vary the pump speed from
50% to 100% of full speed, recording pump speed, flow meter reading, level in each of the
two digesters, and pump suction & discharge pressure gage readings.
7. Do not leave the transfer pump running unattended. Stop the pump if day-shift ends before
transfer of Digester I content to J has been completed.
8. As Digester I level drops to 10-ft depth, run the transfer pump at 100% speed and monitor the
point where the pump begins to cavitate. At the point of cavitation, record pump vibration,
pump speed, pump suction & discharge pressure gages, and Digester I and J levels. Reduce
transfer pump speed to 90% or until cavitation ceases and record Digester I level and
Digester J level where cavitation occurred. Continue to monitor, adjust speed and record
Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
EchoWater Project
Solids Thickening and Processing Upgrades RAT - DIGESTERS-5
speed and Digester I level at each adjustment where cavitation occurs. Do not adjust the
speed below the point where the flow meter reads 400 gpm.
9. If flow is at 400 gpm and cavitation occurs, record pump speed, pump suction and discharge
gages, stop the pump. Record the Digester I level and Digester J level. The CONTRACTOR
shall adjust the Low Level (Pump Stop) elevation to a level 0.25 feet above the point of
cavitation.
10. If the transfer pump does not cavitate at its low (400 gpm) speed, when Digester I level
reaches its Low Level (Pump Stop) elevation, allow the pump to be automatically stopped by
the control system.
11. Once the content of Digester I has been transferred to Digester J as much as possible using
the transfer pump, operate the Booster Pump to fill the remainder of Digester J until level
causes overflow at the Overflow Box. Reroute Booster Pump flow to Digester I (now in
Holding Mode) or stop the Booster Pump if Digester I will fill with supernatant by gravity flow.
12. Starting on the following weekday day-shift operate Digester I in the Holding mode and
Digester J in Active Mode.
a. Verify the PS and TWAS feed valves for Digester I are Closed.
b. Set valves to permit filling Digester I via gravity from the Supernatant Overflow
system. Record the time required until the level in Digester I stops rising.
c. Set valves to permit filling Digester I using the Booster Pump.
d. Start the Booster Pump in Remote / Auto.
e. Set valves to permit pumping of sludge from Digester I to Dewatering.
f. Record each hour the following for the Booster Pump:
i. Elevation at downcomers from Digesters D,G, L and P
ii. Speed of the pump
iii. Suction Pressure
iv. Discharge Pressure
g. Once level in Digester I reaches 20 feet, set valves to permit transfer pumping to
Dewatering.
h. Start the Digester I transfer pump in Remote / Auto
i. Verify pump speed responds automatically to pressure in the Dewatering Header
j. Record the following initially every 5 minutes, then hourly after the system
stabilizes:
i. Level in Digester I
ii. Pump Speed
iii. Dewatering Header pressure
iv. Pump Suction & Discharge Pressure
13. Vary the elevation setpoint in the Digester D,G,L and P from 10 ft. in 5-ft increments up to 30
ft. Record Booster pump speed every minute for five minutes after each change of setpoint
or until the system stabilizes.
14. Test all combinations of the pneumatically operated valves (set in Remote-Auto) in various
modes in accordance with tables in 17300-2.24 G. 4. f. For example, set the Digester I
Transfer Pump to discharge to Digester J with valves in Remote-Auto. Note that certain
modes for the pneumatically operated valves listed in the tables requires opening and closing
of manual valves as well.
