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...

Providence Strives for Superior Conditions in Water Infrastructures

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. Providence, you’re invited!! Perma-Liner Industries requests your attendance at our Open House in Anaheim, CA. It’s taking place for three days from June 13th –June 15th and we want to see you there! It’ll be chock-full of live demonstrations and information on all of the CIPP technology available. Don’t miss this! Call us to confirm your reservation @...

Duckling and the Block Island Sewer Plant

Duckling and the Block Island Sewer Plant

Every once in a while something gets into the sewer system that doesn’t belong there. As was the case with Franklin the duckling. Thankfully, he was pulled to safety when workers from the Block Island Sewer Plant recently discovered him (and 8 other ducklings) in the filtering system with no immediate plans of escaping. Residents reported witnessing a mother and her ducklings lingering near the clarifier days before only to notice the ducklings out of site. One may be reminiscent of the book ‘Are You My Mother?’ right about now. Fortunately, all ducklings were pulled to safety. All but one-Franklin. No worries, the story ends on a high note. The sewer plant workers were able to rescue the lone duckling and he has since been adopted by the Early Learning Center on the Island. A happy ending! Block Islanders, get ready for the 7th annual ‘Taste of Block Island’. This is an opportune time to enjoy the beaches, tourist attractions, shopping, great food and comradery. This ‘off the beaten track’ scenic town in Rhode Island has much to offer. This event is being sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and is taking place September 25th-27th.   Providence, SAVE THE DATE!! Mark your calendars because we’ve got an exciting event all our own and you won’t want to miss this! On September 15th-17th Perma-Liner Industries is hosting a very special event and we’d love to see you!!
