TAC Luncheon June 2019

TAC Presentation

Integrated Planning between WRRFs Provides a Cost Effective

Road Map for Nutrient Removal

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

The Eagle River Water and Sanitation District (ERWSD) is in a unique situation that facilitates a close integrated planning approach among its facilities. This case study illustrates an approach and takeaways that are relevant for other WRRFs who are in the process of finding cost effective paths towards compliance with upcoming numerical nutrient criteria, particularly the opportunities for an integrated planning strategy among facilities located in the same watershed. Nutrient trading and flow diversion between facilities to handle peak conditions can balance financial impact to facilities and rate payers, and reduce the risk of permit violations. Based on this planning approach, the project team developed a comprehensive and innovative plan that benefits the instream water quality and balances the availability of ERWSD resources with the financial impact to their rate payers.

The presenter is Tanja Rauch Williams, PhD, PE, with Carollo Engineers who will be presenting on behalf of Siri Roman, PE, Eagle River Water and Sanitation District.


The luncheon will be held at Red Rocks Community College, at 13302 Fox Run, Lakewood, CO 80228.

RMWC Fun Run

Is Your Toilet Running? 5K Run/Walk
The Conference will be hosting its fourth annual “Is Your Toilet Running?” 5K Fun Run/Walk. You will not want to miss this fun event! The run starts at 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 8, 2019. The name of the 5K was chosen to highlight water conservation:
• A running toilet wastes valuable drinking water and places additional demands on the water supply.
• A running toilet increases hydraulic loading and reduces organic loading in wastewater, both of which lead to less efficient operation of a water resource recovery facility.
The Fun Run/Walk is a fundraising event for the RMWEA Public Education Committee. All proceeds help support the Stockholm Junior Water Prize. This event generates funds through sponsorship signs which are posted along the race course. The start and finish line signs are $200 each, and the 1K, 2K, 3K, and 4K signs are $100 each. Please contact Brenda Varner for sponsorship information at
bvarner@englewoodCO.gov by Monday, July 14th.
All participants will meet at the Keystone Conference Center registration desk at 1:30 pm and then walk over to the Start/Finish line just south of Keystone Lodge. The run will be an out-and-back course on the paved path adjacent to the Snake River. A map of the route can be previewed here:  2019 Run/Walk MAP.
Water will be provided at the start/finish line. All participants are invited to join the group for a post?run happy hour and prize drawing at the Keystone Lodge’s Bighorn Bistro at 3:30 pm. Participants who register by July 15th will be guaranteed a FREE Fun Run/Walk T-shirt!
Location: Meet at Keystone Conference Center registration desk at 1:30 PM

RMWC Golf Tournament

This year, the golf tournament will be held at the Keystone River Course. 

This par-71, Hurdzan-Fry course brings an element of drama to your game. The par-35 front nine is oriented around the path of the Snake River and the par-36 back nine winds through a lodgepole pine forest. Impressive elevation changes, variable bunkers, water hazards, and five sets of tees on each hole combine to challenge golfers of all abilities. The 16th hole features a 194-foot elevation drop from tee to green and the scenic 18th hole offers 12 bunkers and spectacular views of Lake Dillon. Add to that the magnificent views of snow-capped peaks and wildlife and it’s easy to see this is a golfing experience unlike any other. Total yardage is 4,762 - 6,886.

Registration starts at 6:30 am with a shotgun start at 7:30 am on Sunday, September 8th.  Awards will be given for the three teams with the lowest gross, as well as for straightest and longest drives, closest to the pin, and finally a score card draw for those who are there for the scenery.  Light breakfast will be served along with a boxed lunch. Appetizers will be served during the awards ceremony at the clubhouse following the tournament.
