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...

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...

Powdersville Receives Award for Water Program

Feb 25

Powdersville Receives Award for Water Program

South Carolina’s Powdersville Water District was the first water utility in the state to receive the prized Directors Award in the Partnership for Safe Water Distribution System Optimization Program.  The Powdersville Water District was formed in 1971 and supplies an average of 3.5 million gallons daily of high-quality water to approximately 12,500 connections through a 400-mile distribution network. Storage is 3.6 million gallons and consists of a relatively new 1-million-gallon elevated tank, two 300,000-gallon elevated tanks, and two 1-million-gallon ground storage tanks.  Because of the hilly terrain and supply connections located at a higher elevation than the rest of the system, the district is completely gravity fed. The district also maintains one pump station for the sole task of reducing peak flows in the morning and afternoon hours. The service area is located along the Interstate 85 corridor between Charlotte and Atlanta and is growing rapidly. Powdersville is seeing numerous new subdivisions and commercial developments opening each year. The City has worked with a rate consultant for over ten years to maintain an accurate estimate of its financial needs. All financial plans are adopted by the district’s nine-member board and all actions are properly advertised to the district’s customers. Public board meetings are held monthly and include customer input at every meeting. Charleston, great news! Perma-Liner Industries is having our open house at our Clearwater Florida headquarters!! You are cordially invited on March 9th and 10th to see our demonstrations on state-of-the-art CIPP (Cured-in Place-Pipeline) equipment and features.

YOUR success is our success! Make it happen!  Please call to confirm your reservation....

Residents of Lower Richland Interlock on Sewer Project

Residents of Lower Richland Interlock on Sewer Project

In the suburban area of Richland County, residents gather together to make their opinion known on the building of a new sewer system.  Area homeowners feel the sewer structure would not benefit members of the community as well as future homeowners.  The county has indicated the necessity of the improvement project due to faulty septic tanks and environmental issues that have arisen.  There have been several facilities that have been undermined and not running adequately, that need to be brought up to code, according to the City. Despite the resistance from many members of the community, there are guidelines that will be followed to determine the need to connect to the sewer system, if at all.  For instance, the property must be located within 200 ft. of the sewer, and whether or not the existing septic system is inoperable.  The County is expecting the project to be completed by 2017, as it was postponed to ensure the communities concerns were addressed. Perma-Liner Industries is in your area.  We are pleased to offer you our best trenchless equipment for your pipeline rehabilitation and repair.  Call us or go online to www.perma-liner.com to find out more! Charleston, SAVE THE DATE!! Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss this!  On September 15th-17th Perma-Liner Industries is hosting a very special event and we’d love to see you!!  We’re having our Open House at our facility in Clearwater, FL. and it’s sure to be a great time.  We’ll have our excellent staff here to answer all of your questions about Cured-in-Place Pipeline products and our state of the art trenchless technology.  Come out and see live demonstrations, share friendly conversations and gain information.  Meals will be provided.  Please register at no cost: info@perma-liner.com or 1-866-336-2568.
