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.

Duckling and the Block Island Sewer Plant

Aug 12

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!!

Avondale Gets Upgrade in Sewer

Avondale Gets Upgrade in Sewer

With the summer season here, inevitably, and hopefully in some areas, there is rain.  What makes it tough for our sewer systems is when there is too much rain all at once.  This month Avondale experienced an overflow in part, due to an antiquated system of collection for runoff ground water.  The City plans to rectify this by installing larger, connected pipes which will be tied in directly to the main line in Zanesville. Residents of Avondale gear up for this replacement, as it will be approximately 10 months for the project to be completed.  This newer, more efficient gravity sewer is planned as a conventional upgrade.  The older system was installed in the 1980’s with smaller, less capable sewers.  As the population grows, the underground infrastructure must grow with it. It is fairly common not to think of such issues until they become problematic.  That’s where Perma-Liner Industries comes in.  We have developed our Cured in Place pipeline rehabilitation system and have been using advanced trenchless technologies since 1999.  Call us or go online to www.perma-liner.com to discover how we can help you as a homeowner.     Save the Date!
