Myrtle Beach Streets on Standby after Massive Sewage Spill

Myrtle Beach Streets on Standby after Massive Sewage Spill

More than 100,000 gallons of sewage recently spilled along a major street in Myrtle Beach. This brings up the question: is it time to replace the aging pipes? Almost half of the sewer pipes in Myrtle Beach are between 30 to 40 years old. The one that broke and caused the most recent spill – 40 years old. The pipe that broke had been worn down from age and corrosive gases. The specific day of the spill, more sewage was flowing through the pipe, leading to the break. The city’s public works department inspect all pipes using a camera to see if any repairs are needed. It also shows them when pipes need to be replaced. In this case, the thinning walls of the pipe were not caught. While 40 years old is old for a pipe, it’s not the oldest in the city. More than half of the pipes are more than 50 years old. The aging pipes are made of cast iron, reinforced cement, ductile iron, or PVC – all of which have a different lifespan but are not guaranteed their life expectancy. So, how can Myrtle Beach maintain the aging pipes and prevent future spills? City officials are currently renovating several sewer pump stations with renovations costing nearly $3.3 million. The city has also proposed spending $995,000 on sewer projects. Sewer pipe maintenance, relining, and replacements are all important for the city to continue in order to avoid another sewage spill because of their aging pipes. Calling all South Carolina residents and installers, Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. has an event for you to attend! Everyone is invited to our LIVE DEMO July 18 – 19 in Anaheim, California.

America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

There are many variables threatening America’s water from pollution issues and aging infrastructure to raising costs and droughts and rainfall patterns as the climate changes. The U.S. used to be a leader when it came to water infrastructure and management. Now, the U.S. is lagging behind receiving D ratings for dams, drinking water and wastewater. It’s time to start focuses on possible solutions to curb these issues – the U.S. can get A ratings and below are some of the solutions that may get the nation where it needs to be. It starts with creating a national-level governance. Water technically has no boundaries and is very good at sometimes ignoring the municipal boundaries it does have. So what does this mean? One town’s water use or sewage can affect other cities or states that rely on the same water supply. That’s why many countries have a national water authority or commission that oversees water management across the country. The U.S. does not and we’re exactly the opposite. Our nation’s water supply is managed by individual municipalities each doing their own thing. This creates numerous hurdles to climb and makes it difficult to initiate and complete regional projects. To do almost anything, there needs to be a budget and that’s the case with water infrastructure. The government spends only two percent of its GDP on infrastructure, and water infrastructure makes up just a part of that. The U.S. is spending less than Vietnam, Mexico, and Chile. If the U.S. wants nice things, like a water infrastructure that does not fail us, then the U.S. has to be willing to pay for them. One possible solution that most do not consider is the private investor sector. Many investors are interested in investing in water-related issues, but they want to know more about the social and environmental effects their investments will have. The problem is that there are a lot of inconsistencies in how companies report these estimates. It has been suggested that investors, academics and regulators need to team up to create a standardized system of evaluating the impacts of sustainable investments. Another challenge is getting investors to understand how complex and important water is, since it affects agriculture and many...

An Underground World Unknown: Charleston’s Sewer Infrastructure is Receiving a Facelift

An Underground World Unknown: Charleston’s Sewer Infrastructure is Receiving a Facelift

Sewer infrastructures can be a complicated thing, particularly to those who have no idea what exists beneath our roadways and land. Residents who read about a sewage spill or smell a pungent odor think the problem can be fixed quickly. In some cases, yes, but in most cases, it’s a little heavier than a simple fix. The latter happens to be the case in Charleston. As cities grow, the current infrastructures need to be able to hold up under the amount of new residents or businesses moving into the area. With Charleston, an older city, the need for updates has come now. The Charleston Water System has begun two projects for their infrastructure upgrade. These upgrades are geared toward reliability and sustainability. As with any older infrastructures, there is always a chance to have cracks or issues with leaks, sewage back-ups/overflows, etc. If you only rehabilitate the sewer system, you’re not sealing the system. Perma-Liner™ Industries offers a multitude of technologies to repair any of the issues mentioned above and more. We also provide technical support, certification/training, turn-key equipment trailers and more to ensure success and increase productivity. Perma-Liner™ Industries is the leading manufacturer and of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America. Our experience in the CIPP industry has allowed us to design, patent and manufacture state of the art technology in order for us to repair structures without excavation. Calling all Charleston residents and installers, Perma-Liner™ Industries has an event for you to attend! Everyone is invited to our LIVE DEMO April 25 – 26 in New Castle, Delaware.

Warm Water Overflows Induce Disorientation for Charleston’s Manatees

Warm Water Overflows Induce Disorientation for Charleston’s Manatees

The city of Charleston is contending with a variety of sewer overflows caused by wet weather and flash flooding events. Charleston, and other cities in South Carolina have recently dealt with heavy, sporadic rain which preceded several hazardous conditions for local residents. Surprisingly, the inclement weather has also been a concern for the manatees in Charleston. Because of the change of temperature in the waterways do to overflows consisting of warmer water, manatees have been in harm’s way and in a state of confusion. Ordinarily, it’s the time manatees migrate to warmer temps, but due to the unusual warmth of the water, a few made the decision to stay put. This created a potentially hazardous situation which led to a rescue effort of the lingering sea cows, as they are sometimes referred to. Manatees who fail to migrate face serious risks. Additionally, discharge temperatures can have a major impact on wildlife. Tracking devices, when equipped, serve as a helpful tool in securing the location of a manatee. Remember to be on the lookout for all manatees when boating. Boaters are asked to use caution when in low water. The shallower the water, the more likely it is for a manatee to be present. Also, if you notice swirling water or movement, take a second look, it could be a manatee. Interesting fact:  A resting manatee can remain submerged for up to 15 minutes, but while swimming, it must surface every three or four minutes. Charleston, have you made your plans to attend our Open House? We hope so! It’s in Anaheim, CA and your presence is requested! The Perma-Liner Industries Event will consist of three fun-filled days, chock-full of live demonstrations and information on all of the CIPP technology available. It’s taking place from June 13th-15th. Don’t miss this! Call us to confirm your reservation @ 1-866-336-2568. See you...
