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...

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...

Taum Sauk Mountain State Park is the Top!

Taum Sauk Mountain State Park is the Top!

There are many fascinating and historic state parks in Missouri. For a rigorous outing and a scenic adventure, consider visiting Taum Sauk Mountain State Park. It is the top, both figuratively and literally as the park’s 7,500 acres include the highest point in the state! Located in the St. Francois Mountains, the park’s hickory forests and rocky glades provide a beautiful, solitary experience for hikers and explorers. The Taum Sauk Section of the Ozark Trail is 35 miles long and runs through the heart of the ancient St. Francois Mountains. One of the most popular and scenic portions of the Taum Sauk Section is the 14.5 miles between Taum Sauk Mountain State Park and Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park. This rugged portion of trail through two state parks winds across mountains of oak-hickory woodland dotted with shortleaf pine trees, and bluffs. The hike at Taum Sauk Mountain State Park begins on Mina Sauk Falls Trail with steep rocky climbs on high rock “steps” that take hikers past the tallest waterfall in Missouri. Soon after passing the falls, Ozark Trail continues down the valley while Mina Sauk Fall Trail loops back up the mountain. One mile below the falls, on Ozark Trail, lies an 8-foot-wide passage through 50 feet of volcanic rock standing 30 feet high. The trail continues on to Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park with several creek crossings. Remember to pack your camera and your courage! Kansas City residents, did you know that recently the city was issued revenue bonds at a low interest rate of 3.01 percent, which will enable the Water Department to perform $162.769 million in much needed wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout the city? These bonds will be used to fund wastewater treatment, collection systems, pump station improvements, as well as projects related to the federally-mandated Overflow Control...

Kansas City’s Approach to Improved Sewer System

Kansas City’s Approach to Improved Sewer System

Kansas City sits at the junction of the Kansas and Missouri rivers and is part of a metropolitan area that extends into the state of Kansas. Like those of many older cities in the United States, Kansas City’s sewer systems are aging. Each year, combined sewer overflows discharge 6.5 billion gallons of untreated effluent, and sanitary sewer overflows discharge another 100 million gallons. During large storms, these systems can become overwhelmed by excess water, causing flow volume and bacteria levels to impact surrounding water quality.  This causes the sewer systems to reach their conveyance capacity. The result is the likelihood of sewer backup and localized flood events.  Recently, as part of a Clean Water Act settlement, Kansas City entered into a consent decree with the U.S. EPA to eliminate all discharges from its sanitary sewer system and reduce discharges from combined sewer overflows by 5.4 billion gallons per year by 2025, at an estimated cost of $2.5 billion. Kansas City identified funding as the primary obstacle to improved storm water management and water quality, and reported a need to implement innovative approaches and solutions that combine local, state, and federal funding. Both a storm water fee and a dedicated sales tax exist to fund the city’s storm water services. Kansas City, SAVE THE DATE!! Perma-Liner Industries cordially invites you to the annual WWETT show! The Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport Show is happening on February 17th– 20th at the Indiana Convention Center.  You can expect to be well informed with hundreds of exhibits, educational sessions, entertainment, networking, and live demonstrations.
