Arlington Makes Noteworthy Progress for Underground Infrastructures

The University of Texas at Arlington has all hands on deck in participation of an all-encompassing, innovative sewer project. Engineers have collaborated on an underground infrastructure overhaul for sewer manholes across the city.  Currently, the University has established a cooperative to inspect hundreds of sewer manholes in an effort to detect any deterioration or erosion within these structures. Each manhole is four to five feet in diameter and can range from four to four-and-a-half feet tall. This is an important project as corrosion of the manholes can also put the sewer mains at risk, allowing rain and other runoff from the surface to enter the wastewater systems. Interestingly, there are more than 19,000 manholes citywide. The UTA project will inspect different categories, types and geographic locations of manholes in Arlington. Although the study will prioritize corrosion protection, the more important aspect of the project is to analyze the data in order to develop a system of prioritizing the remainder of the manholes. A different but equally engaging project, which preceded this effort, is the inspection of miles of sewer pipeline with the use of a robot. Interesting fact: The DFW Airport encompasses roughly 17,000 acres of land. It turns out that the land the airport sits on is larger than the island of Manhattan. DFW Airport is also making strides on behalf of the environment by becoming the first airport in North America to achieve carbon neutral status. The city has also installed water-saving plumbing fixtures in the airport restrooms, thereby saving over 5 million gallons of water each month. Dallas, Perma-Liner Industries would like to invite you to our exciting summer event! If you missed our Open House this month in California, no worries! Come to our Delaware Open House next month! Stay tuned for all of the details. It’s taking place from July 18th-20th. We want to see you there, and as always, we’ll have our experienced crew demonstrating equipment and all the latest in CIPP.

Arlington’s Revamping Overhaul of Sewer Pipe Lines

Arlington’s Revamping Overhaul of Sewer Pipe Lines

The city of Arlington is implementing the process of replacing 2 percent of its water infrastructure. This is expected to be an annual endeavor for the city in an effort to maintain an ongoing gap analysis on the expected average lifespan of their water infrastructure.  The city’s most current project is replacing 10,200 linear feet of 6-inch water pipe in east Arlington near B.C. Barnes Park, using the cured-in-place pipe lining method for its sanitary sewer and waterlines.  The city also recently teamed with the University of Texas at Arlington to embark on a high-tech examination of 48 miles of large-diameter sewer pipelines. The project, which will start next month and last three years, will assist city officials determine the lifetime of vital sewer pipe and give the officials a way to isolate smaller areas for replacement. After a particularly rainy spring, one of the city’s major sanitary sewer lines collapsed. While making repairs, workers discovered that its walls had eroded away, which became the catalyst for several other rehabilitations throughout the city.  Partnering with UT Arlington offered a cost-effective solution that also takes advantage of the proximity of highly regarded experts at the UTA College of Engineer’s Center for Structural Engineering. The university and city workers will deploy a robotic unit that records video, sonar and laser data into sewer pipes in the city that measure 24 inches or larger.  The main purpose in doing so is to avoid the reoccurrence of sewer line failures. Arlington’s sewer pipe have been found to have an average of 31 years. 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...

Financial Funding Allocated for Water Projects

The State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT) was created by the Texas Legislature to provide affordable, ongoing state financial assistance for projects in the state water plan. The program helps communities develop cost-effective water supplies by providing low-interest loans, extended repayment terms, deferral of loan repayments, and incremental repurchase terms.   Approved projects may include conservation and reuse, desalinating groundwater and seawater, building new pipelines, developing reservoirs and well fields, and purchasing water rights, as well as numerous other strategies.  In the list of requirements, included are the completion of an Infrastructure Financing Survey, as well as, the adoption of a water conservation and drought contingency plan (for entities receiving assistance greater than $500,000). Dallas, here are a couple of events we don’t want you to miss!! Perma-Liner Industries is having an open house at our Clearwater Florida headquarters!! You are cordially invited on March 9th and 10th to see our demonstrations on state-of-the-art CIPP (Cured-in Place-Pipeline) equipment and features.

New Braunfels Sewer Construction Advisory

New Braunfels Sewer Construction Advisory

New Braunfels Utility crews is in the process of rehabilitating the city’s sewer lines this month. Please be advised that if you’re travelling near Post Road, thru-traffic will be re-routed between Gruene Road and Richter Lane during business hours 8am-5pm.  The alternate routes will be accessible and in use for up to a week.  This will allow the workers on the project to have the adequate space to navigate heavy equipment.  The trenchless method of installation used for this enhancement project will be CIPP (cured in place pipeline).  With the use of this technology, the NBU crews are able to invert a resin-saturated felt tube into a damaged pipe and use equipment to cure or harden it in place. Did you know that NBU has many community service initiatives working on your behalf?  This month, on September 26th, residents will be offered an opportunity to properly dispose of medications that are expired or unused. This program is called Operation MedSafe.  This year an additional drop off location will also be available.  The only thing that will not be accepted are disposals in liquid form.  This program helps to reduce the amount of pharmaceuticals that are found in the water systems. Dallas and Houston, SAVE THE DATE!!  Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss this!  On September 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, Illinois 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.
