Providence Strives for Superior Conditions in Water Infrastructures

The city of Providence is very conscientious of water quality and climate change, both of which have created new challenges for utilities.  Particularly, the effects of rising sea levels and the likelihood of more severe rainstorms. The city has been making improvements to better prepare treatment plants and pump stations against flooding, storm surge, and other severe weather effects.  When a series of heavy rain events overflowed the Pawcatuck and Pawtuxet rivers, flooding greatly affected two major pump stations. Recently, a conducted study showed several of Rhode Island’s major treatment plants would see substantial flooding during a 100-year storm when climate impacts are factored in. The study proposed adaptive strategies for flood-proofing; elevating or relocating equipment or systems. A goal for future designs include improvements that would provide continuous operation up to a specified flood elevation. The state plans to lean on its wastewater plant operators as it implements the study’s recommendations and continues to adapt to climate change. All of the outlined projects in the future will aim to restore water quality in the Greater Narragansett Bay watershed, as well as, remain focused on storm water runoff. Runoff from storms can carry nutrients, such as nitrates from lawn fertilizers, into water bodies, leading to algae blooms that can cause low-oxygen conditions; a detriment to fish and shellfish. Additional projects which will best divert and treat runoff will also include the use of natural solutions, such as the construction of rain gardens, and artificial wetlands.

Rhode Island’s Resourceful Reuse of Water

Rhode Island’s Resourceful Reuse of Water

Providence, have you given much thought to water recycling? Water recycling is the safe reuse of treated wastewater for favorable purposes, with no risk of health hazards. A common type of recycled water is water has had pollutants removed at the municipal wastewater treatment plant.  Of the many benefits, reuse of water adds value to the ecosystem, and it aids in restoration and groundwater recharge.  The other advantage of reuse is a certain water supply, even in times of drought. Treated wastewater has more nutrients and may reduce the need for fertilizer and reduce costs for homeowners and businesses. Reuse recycles safe water for activities that do not require the high level of quality needed for human consumption. Recycling water can also eliminate or reduce discharge into waterways. Reduced water supply coupled with population growth necessitates stricter controls on water consumption and identification of alternative water sources. Wastewater reclamation projects are an essential component in meeting present and future water demand.  Due to conditions connected to previous summer droughts, Rhode Island and other New England states have found it necessary to implement water reclamation measures. Currently, Rhode Island has an integrated water resources plan that takes advantages of these alternative sources and their capacity for reuse and recycling. Save the Dates: Perma-Liner Industries has a lineup of events for you to attend!  All are invited to come to one, or if you’re adventurous, all of our LIVE DEMOS coming up in April and May. You can go to www.perma-liner.com to register and find out more but first…here are the dates and locations to save: We’ll be in Seattle April 27th, Chicago May 4th and Philadelphia May 18th. You can expect to have our knowledgeable staff showing you the latest CIPP technology. We want to see you...

Warwick Gets Green Light on Sewer Funding

Warwick Gets Green Light on Sewer Funding

Rhode Island’s second-largest city took the first step toward finally installing sewers in the roughly 35 percent of the city that is not connected to the sewer system. The Warwick Sewer Authority will rehabilitate the sewer system using approximately $56 million in revenue bonds.  This aims at completing the installations which have been on hold for several years. One ordinance authorizes about $23 million in revenue bonds for treatment improvements mandated by the state Department of Environmental Management and also to raise the levee intended to protect the plant from flooding. The second ordinance authorizes about $33 million in revenue bonds to resume long-planned projects that would extend sewer lines to parts of Governor Francis Farms, the O’Donnell Hill, Northwest Gorton Pond and Bayside neighborhoods. Mandatory sewer assessments are estimated to cost $15,000 to $30,000 per household over a 20-year period. The state is requiring that cesspools near the coastline and other wetlands be replaced with either sewers or septic systems. Perma-Liner Industries can help! Go online to www.perma-liner.com or call 1-866-336-2568 to see our products and services for your sewer pipeline rehabilitation.
