America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

There are many variables threatening America’s water from pollution issues and aging infrastructure to raising costs and droughts and rainfall patterns as the climate changes. The U.S. used to be a leader when it came to water infrastructure and management. Now, the U.S. is lagging behind receiving D ratings for dams, drinking water and wastewater. It’s time to start focuses on possible solutions to curb these issues – the U.S. can get A ratings and below are some of the solutions that may get the nation where it needs to be. It starts with creating a national-level governance. Water technically has no boundaries and is very good at sometimes ignoring the municipal boundaries it does have. So what does this mean? One town’s water use or sewage can affect other cities or states that rely on the same water supply. That’s why many countries have a national water authority or commission that oversees water management across the country. The U.S. does not and we’re exactly the opposite. Our nation’s water supply is managed by individual municipalities each doing their own thing. This creates numerous hurdles to climb and makes it difficult to initiate and complete regional projects. To do almost anything, there needs to be a budget and that’s the case with water infrastructure. The government spends only two percent of its GDP on infrastructure, and water infrastructure makes up just a part of that. The U.S. is spending less than Vietnam, Mexico, and Chile. If the U.S. wants nice things, like a water infrastructure that does not fail us, then the U.S. has to be willing to pay for them. One possible solution that most do not consider is the private investor sector. Many investors are interested in investing in water-related issues, but they want to know more about the social and environmental effects their investments will have. The problem is that there are a lot of inconsistencies in how companies report these estimates. It has been suggested that investors, academics and regulators need to team up to create a standardized system of evaluating the impacts of sustainable investments. Another challenge is getting investors to understand how complex and important water is, since it affects agriculture and many...

Kansas City takes the City by Storm (And Storm Drain)

Kansas City takes the City by Storm (And Storm Drain)

Kansas City has been busy revamping the sewer mains and pipelines in order to thwart the problematic sewer overflows. Before this, a comprehensive water main replacement program was launched which included a detailed plan. Mainly, to keep the 2,800-mile water main matrix working up to better standards. In years’ past, the city had experienced over 1800 water main breaks. Currently, the program is anticipating the replacement of the sewer pipelines in a process time of up to 30 miles a year. Due to drought concerns, the city is also keeping water-saving tactics at the forefront of this initiative. In conjunction with addressing water main stability, the additional sewer rehabilitation project is well underway. Did you know that the city uses dye, or essentially food coloring, to test the efficiency of the sewer system? This is done on a daily basis to prevent sewer overflows and basement backups. Interestingly, red dye is used to confirm the location of a service line to a property. Green is used for cave-ins and sinkholes and also in storm drains, which may lead to a common sighting of green dye in the local stream or creek. Sewer advisory just in…the city has alerted residents in the area near 200 W. 94th Street of a sewer overflow.  At the time of the incident, the overflow was ongoing and spilling less than one-half gallon per minute. The manhole and sewer are located on the bank of Dyke Branch Creek.  Wastewater has entered the creek but has been contained by repair and bypass pumping. Kansas City, Perma-Liner Industries would like to invite you to our exciting summer event! If you missed our Open House this month in California, no worries! Come to our Delaware Open House next month! Stay tuned for all of the details. It’s taking place from July18th-20th. We want to see you there, and as always, we’ll have our experienced crew demonstrating equipment and all the latest in CIPP. Make a plan to attend and see you...

Hutchinson’s Sewer Maintenance Division: A Look Inside

Hutchinson’s Sewer Maintenance Division: A Look Inside

Do you ever wonder what tasks your Sewer Maintenance Department perform and how it operates? The city of Hutchinson, for instance, has a staff of 11 people who are responsible for keeping infrastructures maintained and working properly. The specific tasks include taking customer’s requests, construction maintenance, cleaning maintenance, inspections and evaluations of the sewer systems. Maintenance activities include inspection, cleaning, flushing, and repairs of the approximately 240 miles of sewer lines and over 5,200 manholes. The majority of the city is served by gravity sewer lines ranging in pipe size from 6 to 48 inches in diameter. The majority of the sewer pipe is 8-inch diameter and is typically considered to have a lower volume of water. Sometimes there is not enough water discharged by homes and businesses to keep solids and debris flowing downstream. The Sewer Maintenance division cleaning crews use the flush trucks to flush water into the sanitary system through the manholes. There are approximately 70 miles of storm sewer pipes and well over 3,000 manholes, inlets, and catch basins to maintain. The construction maintenance crew has 2 main responsibilities: repair and replace existing sanitary lines, repair and replace existing manholes. On occasion, they install short segments of new sanitary sewers for city owned projects. The construction maintenance crew’s responsibilities are basically the same as they are for the sanitary sewers… repair and replace existing storm pipe, basin, and inlet infrastructure. The construction crews use their wide variety of skills in the same manner to complete repairs and replacement of storm infrastructure. Using equipment such as backhoes and skid steers, reading blueprints, determining and maintaining grades or elevations, carpentry, laying brick, and pouring concrete are just a few of the skills.  It takes teamwork, dedication and know-how to keep the sewer systems operating efficiently.
