Preserving History: A South Carolina Rehabilitation Project

There is a multitude of historic character in the homes and structures of South Carolina. One such place is named The Wallace-McGee house.  This two-story structure was built in 1937 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and state Historical Archives.  A local trenchless sewer contractor was needed to repair a leaky structure ruining the ceilings and walls of this historic home.  A well-known contractor, Drain Pro, was chosen for the job, which involved using a boiler descaler and a Perma-Liner Industries cured in place flex liner to repair two storm drains.  The job had to be done with patience and efficiency. Both storm drains ran through interior concrete walls discharging into separate French drains. Using a state of the art camera, the crew was able to verify heavily deteriorated pipes.  Included in the preservation and maintenance of this historic landmark was, not only the inspection, but the cleaning of the lines prior to the rehabilitation. One of the tools used for this was a 300 gallon jetter from US Jetting.  Drain Pro was careful to choose the right tools that would be least intrusive, yet do the best job. The team successfully rehabilitated the storm drains in two days. If you’ve got know-how and Perma-Liner Industries products, you’ve got a perfect match!

Charleston’s Sewer and Capital Improvement Plan

Charleston’s Sewer and Capital Improvement Plan

Charleston is making progress with its Capital Improvement Program.  The project is slated for a 3 year timeframe and will include several upgrades to the sewer system.  The rehabilitation efforts are focusing on extending the 16-inch water main serving the area of Hollywood and Ravenel.  Plum Wastewater Treatment Plant is designing a new facility which will have pre-treatment, primary clarifiers and final settling tanks.  Renovations to the gravity sewer trunk mains for the Highway 61 corridor and Johns Island are also part of the sewer overhaul.  There is also an objective to replace a 110 year old settling basin at the Hanahan Water Treatment Plant.  A settling basin is a concrete structure that uses sedimentation to remove settled matter and assess the water quality and haziness due to particles from wastewater. The basins are used to control water pollution in diverse industries such as agriculture and mining.  The City of Charleston has also implemented a quality standardization that will serve to reduce overall cost of operations and maintenance, as well as, reduce the total inventory of spare or replacement components and ensure a familiarity with systems resulting in reduced down time during emergencies. A useful tip:  Don’t drain your cooking grease. Even when you use hot, soapy water, grease will cool and settle out of the water. Over time, this can clog your sewer line. Always dispose of grease safely in the trash can.
