An Underground World Unknown: Charleston’s Sewer Infrastructure is Receiving a Facelift

Sewer infrastructures can be a complicated thing, particularly to those who have no idea what exists beneath our roadways and land. Residents who read about a sewage spill or smell a pungent odor think the problem can be fixed quickly. In some cases, yes, but in most cases, it’s a little heavier than a simple fix. The latter happens to be the case in Charleston. As cities grow, the current infrastructures need to be able to hold up under the amount of new residents or businesses moving into the area. With Charleston, an older city, the need for updates has come now. The Charleston Water System has begun two projects for their infrastructure upgrade. These upgrades are geared toward reliability and sustainability. As with any older infrastructures, there is always a chance to have cracks or issues with leaks, sewage back-ups/overflows, etc. If you only rehabilitate the sewer system, you’re not sealing the system. Perma-Liner™ Industries offers a multitude of technologies to repair any of the issues mentioned above and more. We also provide technical support, certification/training, turn-key equipment trailers and more to ensure success and increase productivity. Perma-Liner™ Industries is the leading manufacturer and of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America. Our experience in the CIPP industry has allowed us to design, patent and manufacture state of the art technology in order for us to repair structures without excavation. Calling all Charleston residents and installers, Perma-Liner™ Industries has an event for you to attend! Everyone is invited to our LIVE DEMO April 25 – 26 in New Castle, Delaware.

New Pipeline and Real-Estate Signal Growth for Myrtle Beach

South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach is always a popular tourist attraction but if you’re a resident you may have noticed the recent road closures making it necessary for you to re-route your normal driving routine. The city has closed a section of Cannon Road in order to replace an aging sewer pipeline. After many years of use, old galvanized pipes need to be replaced with newer, reinforced pipes with heightened technology. For nearly 20 years, Perma-Liner Industries has offered a well-proven method of relining old, deteriorating pipelines. It’s the trenchless option and the most durable option. It saves time and money, as well as the inconveniences associated with the older way of rehabilitating the water systems. The curing time to set the pipeline is completed within hours and that means less disruption to your daily schedule. Along with the newer ways of pipelining that are available to the city, as well as other cities throughout the state, the population of visitors and residents with each passing year grows in leaps and bounds. This generates the need for the construction of new homes. In fact, Myrtle Beach remains on the list of cities that has seen rapid growth for many consecutive years. As Myrtle Beach continues to rank as South Carolina’s fastest-growing area and one of the nation’s fastest, the quality of life also has its undeniable magnetism. With the beaches, amusements and numerous attractions, there is something for everyone. But the cost of living is also a draw for many people as it is below the national average. For first time home buyers, it is a good time to invest. If you are currently looking for a new home, data suggests an area of high demand is soon to be near Highway 90. The new developments with homes of significant size, near 60 miles of coastline, remains a deciding factor for those who are in the market for a new home. The median listing price for a Myrtle Beach home is currently $194,000, comparably less than many other nearby South Carolina...

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. Today we are fortunate to have advanced technologies that are better for the environment and quicker- when it comes to saving time. And the good news is, it’s also the most cost-effective solution for your pipelining projects.  The curing process is a matter of hours, not days.

South Carolina’s Flood Recovery Plan: Replanting Anew

South Carolina’s Flood Recovery Plan: Replanting Anew

The most recent flooding in South Carolina left a strain on many cities, including loss and need for renewal in many neighborhoods and communities. Some Carolinians are now forced with the task of putting their homes back together, including the landscaping. There are a few trouble-free solutions that can help to revive your yard.  The duration of flooding, and the severity of plant damage, will be a factor in the livelihood of garden plants. Many landscape plants, especially native trees and shrubs, can survive being submerged for up to a week. Other plants, like azaleas, won’t fare so well. Most transitory landscape plants will defoliate after a flood. Don’t be quick to remove branches that have lost leaves because they may still exhibit growth. A sewage-like odor in the soil results from lack of oxygen. Water covering the soil reduces oxygen to plants’ roots. The sediment that is deposited further decreases oxygen to roots. These factors work together to smother tree and plant roots. Break up and remove flood sediment by hosing it off with fresh water and raking. One tablespoon of dish washing soap per gallon of water in a sprayer tank is an excellent way to clean silt off plant leaves. If silt is extra thick add a teaspoon of dishwasher rinsing agent to your spray tank. Then be sure to rinse with a spray of clean water. Sewer news: an overflow recently occurred in North Charleston due to a rupture in the sewer line, where raw sewage entered the ditches along the sewer easement located in the proximity of Coosaw Creek. The area of the overflow will be cleaned and disinfected to minimize any possible contamination. Coming soon: Perma-Liner Industries is busy making plans for you. We’re planning a “Trenchless Tour” on July 27th in the New England area. We’ll be posting more information on this spectacular event…stay tuned and save the...
