ENV 4561 Fall 2011 Homework # 2 Assigned: September 1, 2011 Due: September 8, 2011 1) (25 points) A city in central Florida is building an effluent holding pond to be used as part of a spray irrigation system. The holding pond is located 8 miles away from the 7 MGD WWTP, which will supply the effluent. The effluent will leave the plant’s filtration unit at an elevation of 38 ft with 8 ft of driving head. The elevation of the discharge pipe is 5 ft. For clarification, see drawing below. 8 miles 38 8 5 Your job is to determine the pipe diameter required to transport the effluent to the holding pond. Use galvanized iron as the pipe material (e = 0.006 in). Solve this problem using the Darcy- Weisbach equation and the Colebrook-White equation. Size the pipe to the nearest inch. Assume water temperature is 80 o F. Ignore minor losses. Hint: Assume a pipe diameter and solve two equations simultaneously D pipe =26 inches (exact answer, but rounding was accepted) 2) (25 points)
