A waste-to-energy journey (17.7.2016)
T•PARK, Hong Kong's first self-sustained sludge treatment facility, is open to the public, with guided tours and spa pools available for reservation. Visitors can explore the park's environmental features and educational and leisure facilities to learn about the city's sludge treatment and experience the “waste-to-energy” process. One of the most technologically advanced facilities of its kind in the world, T•PARK near Tuen Mun combines advanced technologies into a single complex to treat up to 2,000 tonnes of waste per day. It also comprises power generation, desalination, educational and ecological facilities. Waste recovery Environmental Protection Department Environmental Protection Officer Cary Wan said the park's advanced incineration system can reduce sludge, the sediment deposited during the treatment of sewage, by 90%, thereby substantially reducing landfill loads. "The T in T•PARK stands for transformation, which means the heat energy generated from the incineration process is recovered and turned into electricity that can support the needs of the entire facility. "We want to use this as an example, to call on the public to deepen their efforts in energy saving and waste reduction." The park has educational and leisure facilities to boost public awareness on the importance of waste reduction at source. The heat generated during sludge incineration can be recovered for electricity generation to meet on-site needs. The surplus power generated can meet the needs of up to 4,000 households. The park treats and reuses wastewater for irrigation, flushing and cleaning. Its seawater desalination plant produces fresh water for use on site and rainwater is also collected for non-potable use. The heat energy recovered from the incineration process warms the park's three spa pools. They are set at hot, ambient and cool temperatures, and have sea views of Deep Bay, making the park a perfect place to relax and refresh. Energy education Secondary school teacher Alice Choi brings her students to the park to learn about the waste-to-energy concept. "It really works here. Students are not just looking at the display boards but also to have first-hand experience of the facilities, which is related to sludge incineration. This can help them see things in a more concrete and multi-angle way." The park's exhibition halls explain the waste-to-energy, sludge incineration, sewage treatment and power generation processes. Visitors can also view the facility's operations through windows and real-size models. Secondary school student Bowie Tsang said visiting the park has made her determined to reduce waste. "I learned there is a lot of sludge produced in just one day. I will try my best to recycle and produce less rubbish." About 1,200 tonnes of sludge is produced in Hong Kong every day. Landfilling used to be the only means of sludge disposal in Hong Kong. Now with its advanced incineration system, T•PARK can reduce the volume of sludge by 90%, substantially reducing the landfill load. With a green coverage ratio of 70%, the T•PARK includes a landscaped garden with five themes, a roof garden and a wetland habitat for wildlife. Members of the public are welcome to visit the park to experience its educational and recreational facilities. (http://bit.ly/29Jgc2j)
Environmentalists say Spain's Donana nature park is under threat
(1 Dec 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4069038 LEAD IN: The World Wildlife Fund says excessive water extraction is putting Donana National Park, one of Europe's most celebrated conservation wetlands, at grave risk. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNSECO) wants the Spanish government to explain its plans for the park, which receives around 6 million migratory birds annually. The site is currently a candidate for UNESCO's list of endangered world heritage sites. STORY-LINE: Donana National Park in the western region of Andalusia, the southern portion of the Iberian peninsula, is one of Europe's most celebrated conservation wetlands. The 54,251.7 hectare (134 acre) park is home to lynx, otters, eagles and other endangered species and consists of several waterways that wind through the Spanish provinces of Huelva and Seville. The part-wetland wilderness has also a complex of lakes that receives around six million migratory birds annually and is a paradise for tourists and bird-watchers. However, according to a recent report by the conservation group World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the park is drying up at an alarming rate due to excessive water extraction. They say the park is at risk of being placed on UNESCO's (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) list of endangered world heritage sites. UNESCO is due to receive a report from the Spanish government on December 1, to evaluate the country's plans for the park. Donana consists of a protected World Heritage site, also known as the national park, and a natural reserve area - both under the management of the regional government of Andalusia. According to WWF, more than 1000 illegal wells drilled by local farmers in the area have overexploited the park's aquifer and it needs between 30 to 60 years to recover from the aggressive farming of mainly strawberries. The livelihood of the local community depends on the production of strawberries, which account for nearly 90 percent of the production in Spain, according to data from the Association of Strawberry farmers in the southern province of Huelva. The Spanish strawberry industry generates an estimated 400 million euros (424 million USD) annually. But Felipe Fuentelsaz, Coordinator for WWF in Donana says the intensive irrigation system to cultivate strawberry farms have dwindled Donana's liquid lifeline. "We cannot allow this to happen. We are talking about an environment which is important to many species and an aquifer that sustains one of the most important wetlands in Europe." Local farmers however, complain that recent campaigns by environmentalists have criminalised their activities and that they have offered proposals to address the problem. Cristobal Picon, President of the irrigation platform of Huelva region and head of a strawberry cooperative farm based in Lucena del Puerto, near the Natural Reserve area, says farmers are willing to close some of their illegal wells. "The problem is that the environmentalists have a very powerful communication (with the media) and it seems that what we say is a lie and what they say is the truth. It is regrettable that they are playing with the jobs of thousands of families and we are trying to find a balance between the two groups, which is compatible. Because it has always been there (the aquifer) and was conserved by our grandparents." WWF however, indicates that they have yet to reach an agreement with farmers regarding the number of illegal wells and farms and therefore this proposal does not seem adequate to help raise the water level of the aquifer. WWF has also expressed concern regarding the possibility of a gas project in an area nearby the park.

"Re Imagining E/Quality, Living within Limits" by Julian Agyeman
April 15, 2014 | In this Wrigley Lecture, Julian Agyeman outlines the concept of “just sustainabilities," arguing that integrating social needs and welfare offers us a more just, rounded, and equity-focused definition of sustainability, while not negating the very real environmental threats we face. He looks at real-world examples of just sustainabilities, focusing on ideas about "fair shares" resource distribution; planning for intercultural cities; achieving well-being and happiness; the potential in the new sharing economy, and, finally, the concept of “spatial justice.”

Transfer Station, Stamford CT, leaking out
The City of Stamford agreed, after relentless residents had been complaining about garbage leaking out for many years, from the "garbage Transfer Station" grounds. The Transfer Station is on the East Branch Canal, and the East branch Canal, is connected to Long Island Sound, a couple of hundred yards down. Residents and local activists, have been cleaning up a ridiculous amount of garbage out of the Marsh / Wetland adjacent to the Czescik Marina. 2.5 tons were taken out in December and probably the same amount after with another 4 or 5 cleanups and a few heros that go there regularly. The city offered to replace the fence, with a taller one and one with smaller holes, rather than finishing the wall that was started close to 20 years ago. The sea wall, holding the whole structure of that wall, and fence, is collapsing and the city does not want to spend money on this. They did promise that they would look into the plans of a shed to completely contain the garbage transfer, which we imagine was the reason for building this operation back then. On the 25th of April they had confirmed that they were 3/4 finished and about to finish.. After hearing of some goose eggs i am curious how come a wildlife expert was not called on the scene to properly and respectfully relocate the goose..although today i saw no signs of a goose family there, i did see the worst area of the transfer station, in the back of the building where most of the garbage settles and is sent with whirlwinds, then normally into the water either abve the fence or under the fence.. The city will need to resolve this issue ASAP, we will be contacting the DEEP and the EPA about this. Eyes Of Steel Ⓥ DM

New Emergency Animal Mortality Management CPS and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza
Full title: New Emergency Animal Mortality Management (368) Conservation Practice Standard and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Presented by: Glenn Carpenter, Ph.D., National Leader, Animal Husbandry, USDA NRCS Ecological Sciences Division, Washington, D.C. Cherie LaFleur, P.E., Environmental Engineer, USDA NRCS Central National Technology Support Center, Ft. Worth, TX Lori Miller, P.E., Senior Staff Officer / Environmental Engineer, Science, Technology and Analysis Services, Veterinary Services, USDA APHIS, Washington, D.C. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Participants will learn about the new NRCS conservation practice standard CPS 368 to manage emergency related animal mortality and about USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) emergency response in the current Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza situation, including the roles and responsibilities of both NRCS and APHIS. This webinar is a review of the new NRCS conservation practice standard for Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368). With climate change there seems to be an increasing number of storm events and associated animal mortality disaster situations. There are also a large number of emergency mortality situations related to animal health; the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) situation of Spring 2015 is an example. Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368) has been removed from CPS 316 Animal Mortality Facility to strengthen NRCS’s ability to deal with emergency situations, increase the number of disposal options, and more explicitly define NRCS’ roles and responsibilities in providing assistance in a disaster situation. The webinar will also discuss APHIS's role in the recent HPAI outbreak, and how we can coordinate our roles in future events. This webinar includes an informative Q&A session at the end of the presentation, for a total duration of 1:53 minutes for the on-demand webinar.

Integrating spatial data: Mapping social values
Integrating spatial data: Mapping social values in relation to energy and water resources in the western U.S. Efforts to place human beliefs into geospatial representations of landscapes are increasingly being used to inform natural resource planning and management. In this seminar, we investigate ways in which mapping of social data can help to address issues stemming from people’s dependence on energy and water resources in the western U.S. First, we explore The Nature Conservancy’s work on mapping human preferences for energy development in Wyoming in relation to other values, participants' homes, and existing development. We then investigate the Colorado Water Institute’s mapping techniques for identifying locations where new initiatives for water use, sharing, and conservation may be implemented. Inherent to these two projects is a greater need for integration of social and biological data when addressing complex resource issues.

Finding Your Center: Suitability Analysis to Locate a Town Center in Sierra Vista As small cities grow and compete to attract new citizens, their ability to offer a thriving downtown, or town center, is key to their success. Specifically, these developments must contain ample amenities and desirable residencies to ensure that the city has an attractive downtown. One city which has begun planning a town center is the City of Sierra Vista, located in Southeastern Arizona. This study investigates the residential suitability component of the future town center site in Sierra Vista using a suitability analysis. Using cost distance functions and fuzzy logic, a series of cartographic displays show areas within the city where different services and amenities are easily accessible using existing transportation methods. These high accessibility areas are then compared to the five potential town center sites, as identified by planners, to see which sites fall within areas of greatest convenience for future residents. Results show that of the five possible sites, one in particular serves as the most ideal for developing a town center based on the accessibility to amenities that its location provides. The final maps and outcomes will help the City of Sierra Vista to determine which site is most ideal for town center development based on conditions ideal for residential growth.

Decker v. Northwest Environmental Defense Center: Oral Argument - December 03, 2012
Facts: Two logging roads in Oregon, Trask River Road and Sam Downs Road, are owned by the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Oregon Board of Forestry. The roads are used primarily by various logging companies. These roads run parallel to rivers and use a series of ditches, culverts, and channels to direct storm water runoff into the nearby rivers. This runoff deposits large amounts of sediment in the rivers, which adversely affects the fish and other wildlife that relies on the water. The Northwest Environmental Defense Center (NEDC) sued the Oregon State Forester, the Oregon Board of Forestry and several timber companies. The NEDC alleged that, since the runoff ditches and channels can be defined as "point sources," the petitioners violated the Clean Water Act by failing to obtain permits under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. In district court, the petitioners moved for dismissal by arguing that the runoff was exempt from the permits. The district court granted the motion. The NEDC appealed the case to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which reversed the decision based on precedent that supported the NEDC interpretation of both the "point source" and the permit requirement. Question: 1. Do the runoff ditches and channels constitute "point sources" that require permits? 2. Are the petitioners exempt from the permit requirement? Conclusion: No and yes. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for a 7-1 majority, reversed the Ninth Circuit's decision and remanded for further proceedings. The Court held that the Clean Water Act exempts the storm water runoff from the permitting scheme because the runoff is not associated with industrial activity. Even though the roads are used for the transport of raw materials, they are not used for the manufacturing, processing, or storage of those materials. The Court deferred to the Environmental Protection Agency's own reasonable interpretation that the permit requirement extends only to traditional industrial sites, such as factories. Therefore, the runoff ditches and channels did not constitute point sources that require permits under the Act.
