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.

No Small Task for S.C. Cities Pipeline Expansion

No Small Task for S.C. Cities Pipeline Expansion

Residential neighborhoods in and nearby Charleston are in need of a reconditioned pipeline system. Due to natural causes such as fallen trees, roots, or simply the unavoidable signs of an aging system, cracks and breaks in the existing line have necessitated an overhaul. The Hickory Hollow project, which will replace nearly all of the existing sewer lines that run from Stone Road in South Hills, down the mountain along Ferry Branch creek, and end at the pump station near the Kanawha River. The Hickory Hollow project will install 6,400 feet of new pipe, ranging from 10 to 18 inches in diameter. Another 2,300 feet of specialized pipeline will be installed in areas where the existing pipe is intact. Fifty new manhole structures will be included.  When traveling in the area, you’ll notice ongoing construction near the Oakwood Road exit of US 119.  While several additional improvements have also been recommended for the area, the city is in the process of determining which improvements will be next in line. All told, the upgrades will include water and sewer service, drainage and detention upgrades, along with enhancements to nature trails and nearby parks. Bigger and better continues…The city of Greenville has been in the midst of the well-known, and roughly one-mile long sewer tunnel project. The tunnel is one of a kind as it is being built well underground-100 feet below. Downtown Greenville is preparing for the launch, which is anticipated to take place this year. The project known as Dig Greenville is a vast wastewater delivery system project that will, upon completion, stretch from Hudson Street to Cleveland Park. The designing phase is nearing its conclusion, allowing construction to begin later this year. The construction areas will be a staged near Cleveland Park and the Greenville Zoo.  The city advises that the major project will most likely be ongoing for the next few years. Public meetings will be planned in the near future to update residents on the progress and timeline of the new...

Charleston’s Capital Improvements include Brand New Sewer Tunnel

Charleston’s Capital Improvements include Brand New Sewer Tunnel

Neighborhoods across Charleston’s suburbs are undergoing several capital improvement projects which will benefit the longevity and capacity of the current sewer system. Cities from Mount Pleasant to Greenville are making progress bringing their sewer infrastructures up to date. Currently, a very interesting project is in the making-an impressive sewer tunnel. The tunnel is expected to be a mile long and 100 feet below ground, located in downtown Greenville. Residents can expect work to be ongoing beginning next year. The project will be a wastewater project to enhance the current system which is nearing capacity and in need of rehabilitation. Engineers are still in the process of finalizing design details, which will be disclosed in the months ahead.  In Mount Pleasant, there is another noteworthy sewer project taking place which required the city to implement and develop alternate installation solutions due to the scope of the project.  Additionally, the town’s tree ordinances created an added expense of nearly $3 million.  The project route has been reduced in size from its original outline and includes removal of a 20-foot swath of trees located in front of a local Market where the open cut method will be utilized to install the sewer main. How about the trenchless way to avoid uprooting streets, sidewalks, travel routes, and trees? Perma-liner Industries believes wholeheartedly in the trenchless solution.

Municipal Association Pays Tribute to Florence for Nice Save

Municipal Association Pays Tribute to Florence for Nice Save

The municipality of South Carolina is doling out the compliments for a timely rescue! The City of Timmonsville was engrossed in a malfunctioning sewer system and indebtedness a couple of years ago and in dire need of an overhaul to their underground infrastructure. The environmental conditions were also in peril. In short, the City was in the throes of economic havoc. Since the financial aspect of these necessary improvements were not manageable, the partnering agreement with the City of Florence was a welcome relief. Many factors played a part in the restructuring and improvements for Timmonsville’s sewers. Because of an all-out effort on behalf of the City of Florence and its counterparts, a Municipal Achievement Award was bestowed on the City this month. Congratulations!! While there is still work to be done, the majority of the sewer rehabilitations are complete. Only a fraction of the repairs are remaining and estimated to be finished before 2017.
