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.

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.

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!

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.

Kiawah River plans Implementation of Sewer Main

Kiawah River plans Implementation of Sewer Main

John’s Island is indeed an island unto itself, for sewer purposes, it seems. On the South end of the Island sits Kiawah River.  The Beach Company is soliciting help under the advisement of the senior executive of development to build a sewer plant.  This private facility would be a must for this quintessential, untouched island to even consider future residents.  Though John’s Island serves as a perfect retreat for neighboring Charlestonians, it is also home to unspoiled acres of land.  It has not been an easy endeavor, though tried for years, to incorporate plans of a private sewer.  Residents have weighed in as well, and some are not ‘all in’ for this potential taxpayer expense. There are also environmental concerns being raised about the affect new development will have on the Kiawah River.  There will be upcoming public meetings this month on John’s Island to gather more information on the prospective strategy. Residents, when thinking about your underground infrastructure, remember Perma-Liner Industries.  Our experience in Cured in Place Pipelining has ranked us as the leading supplier of trenchless rehabilitation equipment since 1999.  Call us or go online to www.perma-liner.com to find out how we can assist you.   Charleston, SAVE THE DATE!!
