BASIN WASTEWATER SOLUTIONS

WINTER 2016

The units are also completely portable with already existing equipment on
hand, he adds. They have the ability to
be moved, set up and ready to work in
the same day.
Last year, BWS had sales of $1.8 million. "This year, we're picking up with
the oil market being down," he says,
noting that the firm eliminates its clients' costs of using trucks to haul away
the raw human waste. "We can recycle
it on site and give it back to the rig."

A SAFE, SUSTAINABLE CHOICE
BWS's units provide benefits that are
far more important and meaningful
than mere cost savings, Consultant Roy
F. Cammarano notes. "We provide a
tremendous, environmentally responsible alternative," he says.
The sustainability aspect, Moulton
notes, comes from using water on site
for sinks, showers and such. "After it
goes down the drain, through our innovative process, we process this waste
into re-usable water for applications
in the drilling industry like cementing,
pressure washing and drilling itself,"
he says. "From down the drain to down
the hole in a safe, sustainable manner."
The units also divert the waste
from being dumped in inappropriate
locations. Such actions, Cammarano
notes, have led to BWS's competitors
earning fines.
They also cut down on the
amount of pollution from 50,000 to
80,000-pound trucks that transport
waste, Cammarano adds. "[It] lowers
the carbon emissions and reduces
the fuel," he says. "It makes it a safer
environment."
Reducing the number of vehicles
moving to and from the site also lowers
the risk of accidents. For example,
"Trucks in North Dakota are the No. 1
source of accidents," he says. "If you're
having to bring trucks onto your site,
you're adding another risk component.

"They may be able to get that truck
from point A to point B with no
accidents, but from a management
perspective, why would you want to do
all that?" Cammarano asks. "We're a
substantially easier choice."

LEADING THE WAY
BWS is a leader in its market, despite
the presence of competitors in the
United States and Canada, Moulton says. "We feel like we're leading
because we utilize gravity instead of
computerized programs," he says.
This allows less needed maintenance
for BWS's machines and prevents a
complete shutdown during power
outages. "[For] our other competitor
down south, we've heard that when the
power goes down, the system doesn't
reboot itself," Moulton says. "With
ours, even if the power goes out, gravity
is still doing its job."
The company also performs more
frequent equipment checks in person
than some competitors. "We go out
every day and check our stations and
make sure no failures have occurred,"
he says. "[Our] service is proactive,
not reactive."

MAKING BELIEVERS
BWS often needs to educate prospects
who do not understand the benefits of
its systems.
"Any time you're treating sewage, a
regular Joe Blow thinks you're putting
[waste] right back into their tank,"
Moulton says.
"Educating them on the biology and
how that breaks down into a clean liquid again can be challenging, until you
show them," he says. "Once they see it,
they believe it."
BWS's employees operate under a
tight work schedule. "They're basically on call 24/7," Moulton says. "They
work an eight- to 10-hour day."
But the company avoids employee
fatigue by utilizing a cycle where they

work for two weeks and then spend
the next two at home. "I value people's
time with their families," he says. "I
want to provide them a job [where they
can] spend time with their family and
afford a nice lifestyle."

"Educating them on
the biology and how
that breaks down into
a clean liquid again can
be challenging, until
you show them. Once
they see it, they believe it."
// JUSTIN MOULTON, president

The company also maintains an
easy-going environment where camaraderie often grows between its associates. "I really push our employees
to have a good time and get the work
done," he says.
"My motto is, 'You work to live, you
don't live to work.'"

BRANCHING OUT
Moulton wants to expand BWS's
reach. "I would like to see us on all of
the drilling locations in the United
States and branch out into other verticals," he says.
One possibility is the construction
industry, where the recycled water
could be used in road building. "Why
not recycle the waste people are using
and put it on their roads, whether it's
for dust suppression or even before
they grade?" he asks.
Cammarano also sees a strong future
for the technology. "Justin is a great
technician," he says. "He's built an
innovation that no one else has been
able to figure out. [For] the person in
the office, trying to figure out the cost
of capital and insurance, this is a risk
mitigator." He notes the units cut down
on actions where its clients would take
a chance. "They'll just be safer." EMI
