2013 ANNUAL REPORT

INTRODUCTION

The Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant is one of four wastewater treatment plants operated by the City
of Toronto under the responsibility of the Wastewater Treatment section of Toronto Water. Built in
1910, Ashbridges Bay is one of Canada's largest and oldest wastewater treatment plants. The facility
is located at 9 Leslie Street in Torontos east end and also includes two raw sewage pump stations
located north of Lake Shore Boulevard at 1091 Eastern Avenue. The plant is on a site approximately
40.5 hectares in the City of Toronto. The Ashbridges Bay plant services the area bounded by Steeles
Avenue on the north, the Humber sewershed on the west, the Highland Creek sewershed on the east,
and the lakeshore on the south. It is the largest secondary wastewater treatment plant in Canada, with
a sewershed of approximately 25,000 ha, and a connected population of 1,524,000 people.
Construction of the plant was carried out in several phases and commenced in 1910 by the former
City of Toronto. Construction of the present plant began in 1943 and has continued in various stages
since that date. The plant is rated for 818 ML/day, provides complete wastewater treatment, including
removal of suspended solids, dissolved organics, and phosphorus. The plant also provides effluent
disinfection and disposal of biosolids, including the biosolids that are generated and transferred from
the Humber and North Toronto Treatment Plants.
Major treatment processes include screening and grit removal, primary treatment, secondary
treatment, phosphorus removal, effluent disinfection, waste activated sludge thickening, anaerobic
digestion, biosolids dewatering and biosolids management. Treated effluent is discharged to Lake
Ontario. Numerous auxiliary systems are required for proper operation of many plant processes
including: potable water, process water, HVAC, electrical power distribution, gas, chemicals,
instrument air, etc.
The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has classified the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant as a
Class IV wastewater treatment facility under Regulation 129/04. In 2013, the facility was operated
under the ECA No. 2251-8Y8KRT amended November 29, 2012.
This report is a summary of plant operations and performance in 2013. In addition to a discussion of
effluent quality and the plants success in meeting treatment objectives, the report contains summaries
of 2013 plant operation, maintenance, chemicals and utilities, operational costs and human resources.

Influent Quality

2013 ANNUAL REPORT

The Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant treats wastewater coming from the Mid-Toronto, High Level,
Low Level, and Lakefront Interceptor Sewers, as well as the Queen Street and Coxwell Avenue
Trunk Sewers. The High Level, Low Level, Lakefront Interceptors, and the Queen Street Trunk sewer
flows are pumped to the plant via the Pumping Station known as M Building. The Mid-Toronto
Interceptor flows are pumped to the plant via the Pumping Station known as T Building. The
Coxwell Avenue Trunk Sewer flows come to the plant by gravity. Once it enters the plant,
wastewater flows by gravity through the plants processes.
A summary of annual flow and influent parameter concentrations for the past two years is shown in
Table 1. The plant experienced a 9.6% increase in influent flow from 2012 to 2013, and a 5.6%
increase over the average of the last three years. A comparison of monthly influent flow rates and
characteristics for 2013 is illustrated in Appendix C.
Influent to the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant also includes sludge flows received from the Humber
Treatment Plant and the North Toronto Treatment Plant. Ashbridges Bay received an average of 57
dry tonnes/day of liquid biosolids, and 562 m3/day of waste activated sludge from the Humber
Treatment Plant via the Mid-Toronto Interceptor. The North Toronto Treatment Plant transferred an
average of 0.3 ML / day of raw sludge to Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant via the Coxwell Sanitary
Trunk Sewer.

2.2

Preliminary Treatment

Raw wastewater flows into two preliminary treatment facilities, P and D Buildings where grit and
screenings are removed.
The P Building has twelve grit channels six non-aerated chain and bucket type each having a
hydraulic capacity of 64,000 m3/day, and six aerated clam shell bucket type each having a hydraulic
capacity of 141,000 m3/day. There are also ten automatic bar screens, each having a hydraulic
capacity of 272,500 m3/day. The grit and screenings from P Building are hauled to a sanitary landfill
site.
The D Building preliminary treatment facility was recently commissioned in 2013. Wastewater
passes through five mechanical screens, with each screen channel rated at a peak flow rate of 545,000

2013 ANNUAL REPORT

m3/day. The wastewater then flows into four aerated grit channels, each rated at a peak flow rate of
545,000 m3/day. The grit and screenings from D Building are further processed prior to hauling to the
landfill.
The quantity of grit and screenings removed by the grit channels and screening systems averaged 13
tonnes per day in 2013.
2.3

Primary Treatment

The next step in the treatment process is called Primary Settling or Sedimentation where the flow
enters large tanks and its velocity is reduced, allowing heavier solids in the wastewater to settle to the
bottom. Sludge collectors in the tanks sweep the settled sludge (called Raw Sludge) into sludge
hoppers located at the bottom of the tank at one end, from where it is pumped to the anaerobic
digestion tanks. There are twelve Primary Clarifiers, six tanks (#1 to #6) with dimensions of 61 m x
19.5 m x 4.5 m and rated at 142,900 m3/day, three tanks (#7 to #9) with dimensions of 76.2 m x
32.04m x 4.5 m and rated at 308,400 m3/day, and three tanks (#10 to #12) with dimensions of 91.4 m
x 35.05 m x 4.88 m and rated at 385,500 m3/day, with a total installed capacity of 2,939,100 m3/day.
Table 2 contains a summary of key primary treatment effluent parameter concentrations for 2013 and
previous years.
A portion of waste activated sludge from the Final Clarifiers is diverted to the Primary Clarifiers to
co-settle with the raw sludge.

Secondary Treatment

In the activated sludge process, effluent from the Primary Clarifiers is mixed with Return Activated
Sludge from the Final Clarifiers and aerated. The activated sludge is made up of naturally occurring
bacteria and other micro-organisms. The micro-organisms use oxygen and dissolved organics in the
wastewater for their metabolic functions and in doing so purify the wastewater. There are eleven
rectangular Aeration Tanks, each with dimensions of 161.5 m x 6.17 m x 4.6 m and rated at 91,000
m3/day. The tanks employ a step-feed aeration process with four passes per aeration tank and are
equipped with coarse air bubble diffusers.
The mixed liquor from the Aeration Tanks flows to large quiescent Final Clarifiers where Activated
Sludge is allowed to settle. A controlled quantity of this sludge is "returned" to the Aeration Tanks to
repeat the treatment process, and the excess is removed as Waste Activated Sludge and directed to the
Primary Clarifiers, or the Flotation process for thickening, and then pumped to the Digestion Tanks.
There are eleven Final Clarifiers, each with dimensions of 124.4 m x 24 m x 5.3 m and rated for
91,000 m3/day.
A summary of key aeration parameters for the last four years is shown in Table 3.

Final Effluent Quality

Chlorine is mainly used to disinfect the final effluent prior to discharging into Lake Ontario; however,
Sodium hypochlorite is also occasionally used to disinfect the final effluent. The plant outfall is
equipped with a number of diffusers and extends 1000 m into the lake from the shore.
In 2013, the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant continued to produce a high quality effluent which
surpassed requirements of the plants ECA. A summary of key final effluent parameters for the
previous two years is shown in Table 4. Details of the plant final effluent characteristics are presented
in graphical form in Appendix C.

Bypasses

There were 10 secondary treatment bypass occurrences in 2013 where portions of the flow received
primary treatment before being disinfected and discharged into Lake Ontario. Each incident was
reported to the MOE Spills Action Center and recorded in the plants Monthly Report. Secondary
bypass events occur due to high wet weather flows that exceed the plants secondary treatment
capacity. There were 9 secondary treatment bypass occurrences in 2012.
A summary of bypass events occurring in 2013 is presented in Table 6. Secondary bypass events
resulted in a total annual bypass volume of 2,074ML, whereas annual volume of final effluent

Solids Handling

Waste Activated Sludge from the Final Clarifiers is thickened with the use of air and a thickening
polymer utilizing up to ten Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) tanks, each with a surface area of 74.3 m2.
The plant has 20 Anaerobic Digestion tanks of raw and waste activated sludge. Anaerobic digestion is
the biological degradation of organic materials (stabilization) in the absence of oxygen, which
produces digester gas, made up predominantly of methane, as a by-product. This gas is used as a
supplementary fuel for plant needs, reducing the plants operating costs. The digesters operate in the
mesophilic temperature range (33 - 35C). There are twelve Primary Digesters of 30.5 m diameter,
and eight Primary Digesters of 33.5 m diameter.
In 2013, one of the Anaerobic Digestion tanks was out of service due to construction. An average of
5,067 m3/day of raw sludge from primary treatment was pumped to the anaerobic digesters. Average
total solids (TS) concentration of raw sludge was 2.9 % and total volatile solids (TVS) content was
62.9 % of TS.
Waste Activated Sludge (WAS) was pumped to the DAF tanks for thickening and to the Primary
Clarifiers for co-settling. In 2013, 9,160 m3/day of WAS were co-settled and 10,469 m3/day of WAS
were thickened. The average WAS total solids concentration was 0.54%. An average of 875.7
m3/day of thickened waste activated sludge (TWAS) was pumped to the anaerobic digesters for
treatment. Average total solids concentrations of TWAS was 4.8% and its total volatile solids content
was 69.1% of TS.
The average hydraulic retention time of sludge in the Anaerobic Digesters was 25.6 days. Organic
loading of the digesters averaged approximately 1.8 kg TVS per m3 of digester capacity per day.
The anaerobic digestion process reduces sludge volume and stabilizes the solids to form biosolids. A
summary of the digestion process for the previous three years can be seen in Table 7.

Anaerobically digested biosolids are conditioned with a polymer and dewatered using 12 high speed
centrifuges, with a total capacity of about 300 L/s. The resulting biosolids cake is pumped either to
the plants truck-loading facility for haulage and disposal, or to the onsite pellet producing facility.
The total centrifuge run-time in 2013 was 51,451 unit-hours.
The volume transferred to the digesters averaged 5,933 m3/day in 2013.
In 2013, the average solids concentration of dewatered sludge cake was 27.8%, and centrate quality
averaged 1,959 mg/L of suspended solids. The overall average solids capture rate was 77%.
Concentrations of eleven metals in digested sludge are compared to metal concentrations regulated by
Ontario Regulation 267/03, The Nutrient Management Act, which governs the maximum metal
concentration in biosolids that are applied to land. The analyses may be found in Appendix E. These
results indicate that the biosolids met MOE regulations for all metals and E. Coli.
The average digester gas volume generated in 2013 was estimated to be 71,834 m3/day.
In 2013 the daily average inflow to the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant was 631.6 ML/day. The
average daily influent flow for 2014 is projected to be 690 ML/day based on the medium-flow
scenario given by the Facility Forecast report (2004). This flow projection for 2014 does not exceed
the rated plant capacity of 818 ML/day and is expected to generate a sludge volume that will be +/5% of the given volume for 2013.

Biosolids Management

Biosolids generated at the plant are managed in a number of ways, including agricultural land
application, alkaline stabilization, landfilling, and pelletization. Biosolids management from the
Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant in 2013 totalled 142,908 wet tonnes and was managed as follows:
Land Application
A total of 38,109 wet tonnes of biosolids was sent to approved agricultural land application sites in
Ontario. During the 2013 land application season, the City contracted an independent field inspector
to monitor the practices of the City's land appliers. The independent field inspector observed the
application of all biosolids on agricultural land in Ontario. The inspector was responsible for
ensuring the Nutrient Management Act (NMA) and accompanying Regulations were adhered to, site
specific requirements were followed, and monitoring and recording of odour measurements were
taken before, during and after application.
Alkaline Stabilization
A total of 28,389 wet tonnes of biosolids was further processed and used as a soil amendment.
Pelletization
The operation and maintenance of the facility and marketing of pellets is managed by an outside
contractor. In 2013, 61,085 wet tonnes of biosolids were processed by the pelletizer. Pellet quality in
2013 met the standards set out by the Canadian Fertilizers Act.
Landfill Management of Biosolids
A total of 7,356 wet tonnes was transported to various approved landfill sites.
Mine Reclamation
A total of 7,969 wet tonnes of biosolids was utilized at mine reclamation sites.
Table 8 below summarizes the biosolids management methods utilized and the total amount of
biosolids sent to each management option.

Odour Reduction Plan

Od o u r Re d u c tio n P la n (De c 31 2013 S ta tu s )


1.

P ro g ra m S u m m a ry

The details of the Odour Reduction Plan status including odour reduction activities, scheduled
completion, and estimated emissions reductions of odour are summarized in the following Sections.
The plan provides details for Phases I and II, as approved under the Certificate of Approval (Air)
number 3771-92NP7X dated January 23, 2013.
The goal of the Odour Reduction Program is to reduce the plant-wide odour and Total Reduced
Sulphur (TRS) impact beyond the plant property. The program achieves this with a combination of air
capture and ventilation, improved dispersion, process changes, and treatment. Of these, only
process changes and treatment have the potential to reduce odour emissions. For all new odour
sources, odour and TRS emissions were estimated on a conservative basis and are not necessarily
reduced at each implementation step. However, the overall odour and TRS impact is always
reduced, thus meeting the objectives of the odour reduction program.
Following each project, phase emission sampling will be performed and impact assessment will be
calculated as required by the Certificate of Approval (Air).

Replaced Activated Carbon


Scrubber media for
Equilization tanks
Refurbishment of the truck
loading facility biofilter media

Implemented
Summer 2013

Improved pelletizer loading


procedures and door
operation
Biosolids inventory
management

Implemented Spring
2012

Completed three of
four biofilters in
Spring/Early
Summer 2012.

On-going

Final number will be recalculated upon completion of construction.

Benefit
Reduces likelihood of septic
conditions in the aeration process
which can be a significant source of
odours.
Ferrous Chloride (Iron Salts) is used
to remove phosphorous from the
wastewater but has the added
benefit of reducing the release of
Hydrogen Sulphide. Hydrogen
Sulphide causes a rotten egg type
smell.
Ensures existing odour control
equipment operate at maximum
efficiency.
Direct treatment of odourous air
from the biosolids truck loading
and silo building facilities.
Replacement/refurbishment of this
media was necessary as it loses
effectiveness over time.
Has reduced the odours that
escape the building during truck
loading of pellets.
Keeping in-plant biosolids inventory
as low as possible reduces
likelihood of septic conditions in
certain open tanks.

Good housekeeping

On-going

Odour Facility Re-Assessment

2017

Includes ensuring tanks taken out


of service for maintenance are
quickly washed down.
The Facility's odour performance
will be reassessed.
