The BCUA will also publish a periodic magazine to address developments in the field of communication and talk about its activities and events," he added.
Other BCUA officials named were vice-president Faisal Abdulla Mohammed Sharif, general-secretary Fouad Hassan Abel and members Raed Mahmoud Mohammed Al Samahiji, Mazen Abass Abdulla Al Shehabi and Wajd Salalh Ali Al Madni.
Soon after they lost their two colleagues, BCUA management, labor, and environmental officials sat down to draft a confined space operating strategy.
There are three different types of BCUA field crews, and each enters a different type of confined space:
BCUA crews are well versed in the Occupational Health and Safety Administration's Permit-Required Confined Spaces Standard, CFR Part 1910.
After preparing their specific confined space entry permits, BCUA crews travel to their work sites and prepare the area.
According to Nasta, while BCUA employees felt "confident in our confined space procedures, the maintenance of gas detection instruments was causing us concern.
The BCUA agreed to serve as a beta test site for Industrial Scientific's DS1000 Docking Station [TM].
Alesandro commented that the test proved that centrifugation was a cost-effective solution in both instances and that BCUA could process digested or WAS sludge in the centrifuge more efficiently than with gravity thickeners used previously.
Because of a strong interest by the BCUA a staff in advancing the state of the art, a proposal to extend the test of include a controlled comparison trial with a second centrifuge was readily accepted.
BCUA followed through with an order for a larger version of the centrifuge: a trailer-mounted unit that went on-line for full 24-hour-a-day processing in September 1988.
The unit is currently saving BCUA $600,000 to $900,000 per month, or more than $20,000 to $30,000 per day.
