Federal and state laws regulate desalination plants in the United States, and they must comply with several environmental regulations to be approved for operations. Let’s look at a few critical points regarding Desalination plant regulatory compliance.

  • What do Desalination plant regulatory compliance checklists usually cover?
  • What makes these reviews so crucial for sustainable desalination projects?
  • How does Fielda help deploy these checklists for improved efficiency and operational hygiene?

What do Desalination plant regulatory compliance checklists cover:

Regulatory inspectors use a variety of forms to audit the level of compliance in desalination projects. Some vital regulatory elements include how the project addresses the issue of property rights, the construction methodologies and protocols being followed, and how the project plans to ensure minimum environmental damage. The Federal Water Pollution Act (Clean Water Act) outlines norms on how water should be withdrawn for desalination. Inspectors check if the process hurts marine life and the local environment. They also check if any endangered species are present in the proposed desalination project zone and may even withhold approval of a project based on this impact. Desalination plants must also follow norms laid down by the Federal Fishery protection laws to avoid impact on fish species and local wildlife. 

Why are Desalination plant regulatory compliance checklists so essential: 

Desalination plants must meticulously follow the norms of a complex regulatory environment, including federal, state, and local laws. Failure to comply with these can impact the project right at the beginning; in some instances, if the location or process being adopted negatively impacts marine life, the project may not even be approved. During operations, the desalination process must also follow approved methodologies to ensure safety and minimal environmental impact to stay operational and viable. 

How does Fielda streamline the use of these checklists: 

Regulatory reviews involve several forms based on specific environmental and process audits. Fielda enables inspectors to quickly build, customize and adapt forms to suit these changing needs and track collected data effectively. For example, desalination plants may sometimes be located in off-grid locations. Fielda is geared to seamlessly enable inspectors to gather data even where internet connectivity is unavailable using its offline data capture feature. Once data is collected, reports can be instantly generated for project leads, regulatory auditors, and operations teams to review and act.
