Kansas City Redesigns Newer Sewer Systems and Infrastructures

Kansas City Redesigns Newer Sewer Systems and Infrastructures

A septic system can lead to potential problems when operating in place of a more modernized wastewater system. The city of Independence experienced a dilemma when using an older system without grease traps when renovating a building within the educational school district.  A recent project to upgrade the school’s five-building sewer system was successfully completed. Prior to the renovation, all the pipes ran by gravity through 150 feet of 6-inch Schedule 40 PVC pipes- to a pair of 2,000-gallon septic tanks connected in series by 6-inch pipe and spaced 10 feet apart. More sewer news: Kansas City also recently rehabilitated a 125-year-old original 114-in. circular brick combined sewer due to its age and decline. The sewer eventually sustained a crack in the crown of the structure, affecting the structural integrity of the pipe. To redesign the pipeline, PVC-based material that is spirally wound into an existing pipeline was utilized. With the use of newer technologies and cured-in-place pipeline, the result is a strong composite pipe integrated with the existing pipeline. The new sewer now has proven staying power and improved hydraulic flows. Interesting fact: Kansas City has impressive infrastructure including the Pedestrian Bridge that links the River Market to the downtown Kansas City Riverfront. Built over a decade ago, the bridge is 650 ft. long and provides a bicycle and pedestrian link between the north end of Main Street and the original birthplace of the city on the banks of the Missouri River. The bridge serves as a pivotal connection between the surrounding community and the many amenities along the river. Coming soon: Perma-Liner Industries is busy making plans for you. We’re planning a “Trenchless Tour” on July 27th in Waterbury, Connecticut which will include live demonstrations and show specials! Click Here to Register! Or call 1-866-336-2568. See you...

Kansas City Offers Sewer Line Warranty Program

Apr 25

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. 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. Register by calling 1-866-336-2568 or Click Here! See you...

Protecting Sewer Systems with Alternatives

Protecting Sewer Systems with Alternatives

Kansas City is known for having an abundance of beautiful fountains, enough to match the allure of well-known cities in Europe. But with an aging combined sanitary sewer and storm water sewer systems throughout much of the urban core, there are many problems caused by increased storm water runoff during heavy rainstorms. The city has faced the growing need to address and reduce the burden caused by increased storm water runoff. With the need to explore other solutions, the city is setting an agenda to use alternative resolutions to off-set storm water runoff.  In combination with the traditional functioning of concrete pipes and tanks, the goal is to meet the overall required capacity needed for acceptable storm water management systems. Kansas City’s Overflow Control Plan will be actualized over a period of 25 years and cost an estimated $2.4 billion. It has been designed to meet regulatory requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency and Missouri’s Department of Natural Resources to reduce and prevent sewer overflows. When this project is complete, there will be a reduction of approximately 88% of the current number of overflows throughout the entire city. The effective use of green solutions can reduce the size and cost of more customary solutions, which includes concrete pipes used to move storm water offsite and towards the wastewater treatment plant. Another noteworthy strategy will be the introduction of curb extensions, which have been added on several side streets within the city.  The purpose is to reduce the quantity of water flowing into the intersections, and similarly, reduce the amount of runoff going into the storm sewer...

Kansas City’s Infrastructure Highlights and Delights

Kansas City’s Infrastructure Highlights and Delights

Kansas City’s green infrastructure program is currently focusing on a Middle Blue River Basin, which encompasses 744 acres and was divided into five project areas. Recently, the city completed installation of a pilot project, which is located in an older, mixed-use residential and commercial neighborhood served by combined sewers. Before installing the intended green infrastructure, the city conducted a complete rehab of the sewer system in the pilot neighborhood, cleaning and repairing for maintenance purposes. A nearby neighborhood was left untouched, with no sewer rehab or green infrastructure, to serve as a control area. Kansas City Water Services constructed more than 150 green solutions, such as the curb extension rain garden and a porous sidewalk, as part of the 100-acre pilot project in the Middle Blue River Basin. Interesting Fact: Several of Kansas City’s Parks have fountains that are available to “dye” in celebration and recognition of an event or cause. One of these Parks is the Northland Fountain. It has also been called the “Spirit of Cooperation”, because it illustrates the unified effort of the public and private sectors worked together to achieve a common goal. Its benefactors range from Farmland’s $30,000 contribution to a three-cent donation from a schoolchild. An 80′ circular base contains a center geyser which can propel water to a height of 35′. In winter it becomes an ice sculpture attracting people to view varied shapes created by the frozen water. The Northland Fountain is one of three Kansas City’s Parks fountains that remains on year-round. Kansas City is known for miles of scenic boulevards and parkways throughout the city, where 48 fountains and 117 memorials and sculptures add to the attraction of the city.
