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 Goes Above and Beyond For Water Quality

Kansas City Goes Above and Beyond For Water Quality

Kansas City has begun the largest green infrastructure project to date for the city. The substantial 10-acre, $30 Million investment is located at 81st and Troost. This is an all-encompassing community initiative to keep stormwater out of the combined sewer system, as well as, provide a cleaner environment for Kansas City neighborhoods. The 10-acre site will likely be scheduled for additional investments such as a space for public meetings and a community garden. The 81st and Troost project is one of three areas receiving infrastructure improvements. Construction is also underway at Arletta Park and will soon begin at Rachel Morado. These projects are part of Kansas City’s Overflow Control Program- a 25-year, federally mandated effort to reduce sewer overflows and improve water quality. Work on all three areas is anticipated to be complete by December 2017. Another imaginative project in which the city sought the help of community artists, was the creation of 100 artistically designed storm drain manhole covers. The attention-getting new design is intended for residents to understand that the trash and car fluids that end up on the ground, the fertilizer that washes off of our lawns, goes down into the rivers, creeks and streams. It reminds all who pass by to be mindful about what goes into the storm drains. Recently, the city launched a design contest for local artists to create a water quality message that would ring true with the public. The winning design features a turtle, fish, and frog-along with an embossed message “Think: Protect Your Water, Protect Our Home”. The manhole cover design fosters water quality awareness and serves as an impetus for the safekeeping of the environment. The new covers will be placed strategically throughout Kansas City. Certified Installers take note: Perma-Liner Industries would like to invite you to our Refresher Training (Perma-Lateral™ specific) that will take place on July 12th and 13th at our Clearwater facility!! Please plan on attending.

Kansas City Offers Sewer Line Warranty Program

Kansas City Offers Sewer Line Warranty Program

Recently, Kansas City began offering coverage to homeowners for outside water or sewer line repairs, through a service line warranty program. In light of recent water line breaks, the city was intent on establishing an affordable protection plan for homeowners. Thereby, avoiding the expense of such repairs on their property. Many cities have followed suit, realizing the value of this type of program.  More than 270 cities in 34 states are now offering this service. Typically, homeowners insurance doesn’t cover repairs to a broken or collapsed line. While sewer clogs are the main concern for most homeowners, it can become a pricey undertaking if you reside in an established neighborhood with older homes, particularly from around 63rd Street to the Missouri River. These homes have galvanized steel water lines, which are prone to tree roots entering through their joints and clogging the lines. The lines are not nearly as long-lasting as copper lines. In such cases, water line coverage is equally or more important. Homeowners are likely to think of cost-cutting solutions. That’s one reason more than 12,000 Kansas City families have signed up for the city’s program. This coverage is provided at a reasonable cost, making repairs less expensive and troubling. You can recruit the assistance of one of Perma-Liner Industries certified, highly qualified, plumbers to unclog a line at your residence. Sewer coverage can cost approximately $73 annually. If you opt for combined coverage, the cost is approximately $47 more annually. Additionally, there is no waiting period with the city program, which is sometimes the case with similar, more expensive plans.
