Design capacity definition

Design capacity means the volume of a containment feature at a discharging facility that accommodates all permitted flows and meets all Aquifer Protection Permit conditions, including allowances for appropriate peaking and safety factors to ensure sustained, reliable operation.
Design capacity means the maximum amount of solid waste a landfill can accept, as specified in an operating permit issued under R307-415 or a solid waste permit issued under Rule R315-310.
Design capacity means the total volume of compacted dredged materials, along with any topsoil, intermittent, intermediate, and/or final cover, as calculated from final contour and cross-sectional plan sheets that define the areal and vertical extent of the fill area.

Examples of Design capacity in a sentence

  • Design capacity: The total amount of flows that the water and wastewater plants are designed to treat per theDrinking Water Works Permit (“DWWP”) or Environmental Compliance Approval, respectively.

More Definitions of Design capacity

Design capacity means the amount of petroleum that a tank is designed to hold. If a certain portion of a tank is unable to store petroleum because of its integral design (for example, electrical equipment or other interior components take up space), the design capacity of the tank is thereby reduced. Actions taken to physically alter the design capacity of a tank (such as drilling a hole in the side of the tank so that it cannot hold petroleum above that point) will not change the design capacity of the tank.
Design capacity means the maximum amount of solid waste a landfill can accept, as indicated in terms of volume or mass in the most recent permit issued by the agency responsible for regulating the landfill, plus any in-place waste not accounted for in the most recent permit. If the owner or operator chooses to convert the design capacity from volume to mass or from mass to volume to demonstrate its design capacity is less than 2.5 million megagrams or 2.5 million cubic meters, the calculation must include a site specific density, which must be recalculated annually.
Design capacity means the total design throughput, in tons of petroleum coke or bituminous coal per operating day, of The E-GAS™ Technology gasification system according to the design information supplied in Appendix A, to produce the design quantity, pressure and temperature of synthesis gas at the specified delivery point.
Design capacity means the maximum estimated potential airspace to be occupied by a land disposal facility, including all cover systems. "Design capacity" is used only for planning purposes and is distinct from permitted capacity. "Design capacity" is an estimate dependent on the existing landholdings of the permittee, existing regulations that affect development and design (including required buffer areas, storm water management requirements, and slopes), engineering designs, and site developmental plans. It includes all areas that have been completed, all active areas, and all proposed areas based on the largest design footprint shown on the plan sheets. It is the volume that, upon final closure of the facility, would be occupied by waste (along with all associated materials including cover) measured from the base of the fill to the top of the proposed final cover.
Design capacity means, for the Units, the maximum rate of electrical energy production, net of auxiliary loads and station electrical uses, that the Units can be expected to reliably and safely generate on a sustained basis as of the Execution Date, as measured at the Electrical Delivery Point, at ISO Conditions, which is set forth in Appendix II.
Design capacity means the total volume in cubic yards of solid waste which could be placed in a waste site, including the volume of cover material utilized in the facility, but not including final cover or topsoil.
Design capacity means the capacity of the EG Facility to produce *** Tons, net of all Yield Loss, of Reference Strip annually, subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 5.03 of the Operating Agreement, and with respect ------------ to any other unit of time shall mean the pro rata amount based on such annual rate.
