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...

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.

Improvement Program for Charleston’s Drainage Ditches

Improvement Program for Charleston’s Drainage Ditches

Ditches not only provide an efficient and effective means for the discharge of stormwater but also reduce the level of ground water, provide storage and can reduce pollutants commonly found in stormwater runoff. In neighborhoods with open ditches, a property owner may elect to improve the property by requesting the city to pipe existing drainage ditches. In this program, the property owner will be responsible for the cost of the permit, an engineering fee, materials, and a per-foot cost for labor and equipment. The city of Charleston offers ditch piping services to property owners who wish to make aesthetic improvements by filling existing drainage ditches. Keep in mind, ditches that lie solely within the limits of a private property and are not part of the public drainage system are not eligible for the ditch piping program. An engineer will first inspect the property to review the master drainage and floodplain management plan to determine if it is in an area with a history of flood problems to insure that the work will not adversely affect properties within the drainage basin and to incorporate any recommendations of the plan into the design of the pipe system. During this time there will also be a cost estimate prepared. The estimate provided by the city to the property owner will be valid for a period of three months. Charleston, Perma-liner Industries has some exciting information that must be shared now as time is of the essence! It’s the Section 179 Deduction. This allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income.
