Eliminate the need to truck muddy construction slurry from hydrovac trucks to distant sites for dewatering or disposal. The Bishop Solids Management Solution provides an easy-to-use, affordable process for onsite collection and dewatering of excess soil excavated during urban construction activities.
This automated, low-energy system can be quickly set up at, or nearby, most job sites in just a few hours and is fully customizable to fit the available space and dewatering requirements.
The Bishop Solids Management Solution uses Geotube® geotextile containers and specially selected polymers to achieve high levels of dewatering and water treatment in a single step. The passive dewatering process requires little energy and provides economic and operational benefits that include:
Slurry from hydrovac trucks is first screened to remove large debris. The slurry is then pumped directly into a Geotube® container, which is made of a high strength, woven polypropylene fibres. As the slurry is pumped to the Geotube® containers, a specially selected polymer is added.
Bishop Water uses a unique Venturi Emulsified Polymer Activation System (VEPAS), which injects and activates polymer in a single pass and requires no mechanical agitation. This eliminates the need for bulky mix tanks, associated equipment and additional maintenance.
The polymer helps retain fine particles within the Geotube® container and also accelerates dewatering. Water flows out through the microscopic pores of the Geotube® container and is collected on a membrane-lined lay-down area beneath the container. Depending on the permitting requirements and local regulations, the high-quality filtrate can be used in several ways. It can be discharged to a municipal sewer, released to a water body or reused onsite for non-potable applications such as washing out and refilling hydrovac trucks.
