Traveling Water Screen support for the Clean Water Act, EPA 316(b) regulations

Cambridge Waster Screen Systems can provide a belt-style (vs. basket-style) Traveling Water Screen system with a custom mesh belt (manufactured in-house) with multiple mesh opening size options. These options include a “woven mesh” with “maximum opening dimension of 0.56 inches” that includes but is not limited to a 1/2 by 1/4 inch opening size. However, we do not currently provide a fish handling/return system that complies with the EPA 316b regulation.

Cambridge Waster Screen Systems can provide a new or replacement Traveling Water Screen system, if your facility falls under the EPA 316b regulations and operates a Cooling Water Intake Structure (CWIS) that is currently or planning to comply with the following regulatory options under the EPA 316b rules:

 

  • Operating a closed-cycle recirculating system as defined by the rule.
  • Operating a CWIS that has a maximum design through-screen velocity of 0.5 feet per second.
  • Operating a CWIS that has a maximum actual through-screen velocity of 0.5 feet per second.
  • As part of operating a combination of technologies, management practices and operational measures that the director determines represent the BTA (Best Technology Available) for impingement reduction – That does not include a Traveling Water Screen system with a fish handling/return system.

 

For 100+ years Cambridge has been the global leader of conveying and static mesh systems. Our roots in Water Screen Systems date back over 80 years.
