Epoxy vinyl ester resin brings many advantages to CIPP industry

Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. (“Perma-Liner”), the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, is introducing a new high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin called Perma-Liner™ Vinyl Ester. The resin is Bisphenol-A Epoxy-based dissolved in styrene and is available now for purchase. “We are excited to introduce our newest resin into our already broad spectrum of products,” said Jerry D’Hulster, president of Perma-Liner Industries, LLC. “The high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin offers an excellent balance of corrosion and performance properties. It will allow Perma-Liner to expand to new markets with its unique capabilities.” The new resin provides the corrosion resistance, durability and toughness that is required within the CIPP industry.

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...

The City of Columbia’s Comprehensive Sewer Review

May 11

The City of Columbia’s Comprehensive Sewer Review

The City of Columbia’s Capacity Assurance Program (CAP) is a program that reviews all new sewer service connections and increased wastewater flow. This review follows specific criteria to determine if the City’s wastewater system has sufficient capacity to accept new connections and increased flows. The CAP is a part of the Columbia’s comprehensive program to reduce and prevent sanitary sewer overflows. The City is required to implement a CAP that meets federal and state approval. As part of its Capital Improvement Program, the City regularly identifies projects that could improve sewer capacity. Columbia has completed numerous projects that have avoided many capacity limitations within the system, including upgrading all of its major sewer pump stations, rehabilitating a major sewer outfall, and upgrading capacity at the wastewater treatment plant. In recent years, Columbia has been dedicated to rehabilitating the sewer system in order to address the existing problems of raw sewage overflows. Based on the sewer system assessment and requirements, the city developed and implemented remedial projects and infrastructure upgrades to address these conditions. The remedial projects were in addition to infrastructure upgrades already underway. The city has also established specific programs designed to ensure proper management, operation and maintenance of its sewer system over the long-term to prevent future sewer overflows. At an estimated cost of $750 million, Columbia has agreed to undertake a thorough assessment of, and implement extensive improvements to its sanitary sewer system. The initiatives for reducing sewer overflows focus on prioritizing issues of human health and the environment. Certified Installers take note: Perma-Liner Industries would like to invite you to our Refresher Training (Perma-Lateral™ specific) that will take place on July 12th and 13th at our Clearwater facility!! Please plan on attending.

South Carolina: Home to Sea Turtles and Old World Monkeys

South Carolina: Home to Sea Turtles and Old World Monkeys

South Carolina is home to a wide variety of habitat types, including hemlock-blanketed mountains, rolling sand hills, flooded cypress forests, and sunny palmetto-lined beaches.  Another fascination are Sea Islands.  Morgan Island, aka Monkey Island, is an uninhabited island in South Carolina that is home to the only free-ranging colony of Old World monkeys in the United States. There are around 3,500 monkeys on the island.  Though law strictly prohibits people from going onto the island, the monkeys are often seen walking the beaches, sun bathing in the tree-tops, and in the marshes. South Carolina is also home to a noteworthy reptile, namely, the loggerhead sea turtle. This is the most common sea turtle in South Carolina. The nesting season is just beginning and runs from mid-May to mid-August. Nests are typically made between the high tide line and the dune front, on ocean beaches and occasionally on estuarine (where a river meets the sea) shorelines with suitable sand. The average clutch size in South Carolina is 120 eggs, with the average incubation duration of 55 – 60 days.  Loggerheads are named for the size of their head relative to their body. These sea turtles can be found hundreds of miles out to sea or in inshore waters such as bays, lagoons, salt marshes, creeks, ship channels, and the mouths of large rivers. Coral reefs, rocky places, and ship wrecks draw large amounts of marine life and are great feeding areas. Scientists believe that loggerheads are long lived and could live to 50 years or more.

The Drain Pro Success Story in Lexington

The Drain Pro Success Story in Lexington

In whatever area you live, Perma-Liner Industries will recommend the best plumbers for tough jobs.  For one such job, Drain Pro was just the right choice for the given task.  A homeowner’s flooded pet cemetery caused by heavy rains and a clogged drain pipe (located in a 2-acre pond in Lexington, S.C.) required an expert in the field. In the month of January, the challenge of cold water is a given, but the water level needed to be negotiated, as well. A 15-foot-high earthen dam across a stream in a heavily wooded area had created the 65-year-old pond. The only way to reach the outfall to inspect the pipe was down the face of the dam.  After toil and trouble, the Bergeron crew heading up Drain Pro, was able to access and inspect the pipe which revealed not only vegetation and heavy scaling in areas, but two dead turtles causing a blockage. Ultimately, know-how, ingenious by the working team and Perma-Liner’s Perma-Lateral lining system all got the job done together! The end result? A happy homeowner! YOUR success is our success. Charleston, Perma-Liner Industries cordially invites you to The UCT (Underground Construction Technology) conference in Atlanta, Georgia! Taking place on February 3rd and 4th at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta. Register BEFORE January 14th for best rate. Looking forward to meet you there!!
