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...

Miami’s Pioneering Discovery in Pipeline Defects

Miami’s Pioneering Discovery in Pipeline Defects

Miami has coined an innovative way to scan underground pipeline to detect sewer line leaks.  The Miami -Dade Sewer dept. has adopted a low voltage technology for testing gravity sewer lines.  This process is called Electro Scan.  This is used essentially to detect loss of water/leaks AKA exfiltration in the drainage system.  This tool is also key in determining how damage to the pipeline would subsequently affect other sources of water, potentially causing an environmental health hazard.  The premise of what some would call a high tech detection mode is this: since sewer pipe is known to be made from materials that prevent electric current, such as brick, clay and cement, no electric current would escape unless there is a leak; thereby detecting a problem.  Kudos to our Miami engineers for being at the forefront of such advancements and paving the way for our City’s most advanced underground infrastructure evaluations. Here at Perma-Liner we believe in such top of the line products and have been developing our own trenchless, Cured in Place pipeline equipment since 1999.  We are proud to be able to offer you our best.  For more information on how we can help you now, before a problem arises, call us or go to www.perma-liner.com.   Miami, SAVE THE DATE!! Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss this!  On Sept. 23rd Perma-Liner Industries is hosting a very special event and we’d love to see you!!  We’re having our Open House at our facility in Plainfield, IL… and it’s sure to be a great time.  We’ll have our excellent staff here to answer all of your questions about Cured-in-Place Pipeline products and our state of the art trenchless technology.  Come out and see live demonstrations, share friendly conversations and gain information.  Meals will be provided.  Please register at no cost: info@perma-liner.com or 1-866-336-2568.
