Duncanville’s Cross Connection Control program

The purpose of a Cross Connection Control Program is to identify potential cross connections on the public water system and require that the proper backflow prevention device is installed at the potential source.  Duncanville requires Backflow Prevention Devices to be installed by a registered plumber or backflow installer and then tested by certified backflow tester who is registered with the Cross Connection Department. The original test report must be turned into the Cross Connection Department within one business day.  There is also a list of acceptable backflow prevention devices on the USC Foundation website (www.usclist.com). Devices must be approved by the University of Southern California Foundation for Cross Connection Control and Hydraulic Research.  Something to also keep in mind when reviewing the backflow prevention criteria, assemblies shown on the list have been evaluated with a specific set of shutoff valves as an integral part of the assembly. The specific shutoff valves are coded by a parenthetic code shown with each assembly. The coding of shutoff valves is defined specifically. Other shutoff valves having similar performance characteristics which permit the assembly to comply with the standards are also shown immediately after the original shutoff valves. The use of any shutoff valve on a specific assembly, other than those listed for that specific assembly invalidates the approval.  In addition, all commercial backflow devices will be determined based on the type of application and degree of hazard. These devices are required to be tested every year.

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.

Sewer and Water 101

Sewer and Water 101

Summer is indeed here in all its glory.  We know that means rainfall is here, too.  In fact, in many parts of the country we have had record setting storms.  Precipitation can heavily contribute to an overloaded sewer system.  As a nation, we have over 700 communities that utilize combined sewer systems.  There are some Cities that have separate sewer systems but this is no small financial investment.  Even so, municipalities have the burden of making sure these systems are functioning. It can pose a health risk and even more financial strain if they are not. There are small contributions the residents of any community can make to keep overflows to a minimum.  With a combined effort, each small attempt will add up to bigger and better successes.  A few good suggestions are:  1. use less water during a storm.  Showering, flushing the toilet and doing laundry should be avoided, if possible. 2. Please don’t litter.  Strom drains can be affected when garbage is near and subsequently can raise the possibility of overflows even in dry weather.  3.  When in doubt of how to accurately dispose of household products, consult with your local waste management dept. 4.  You’ll save money on your water bill AND be a team player at the same time with a mindful approach to how much water you are using.  Also, remember to fix any leaky areas in your home. Perma-Liner Industries is here to help you.  Before a problem exists, we can repair and rehabilitate the pipelines in your underground infrastructure saving you time, energy and money.  Since 1999, we have developed state of the art equipment and we specialize in trenchless, Cured in Place Pipe that is eco-friendly.  Call us or go online to www.perma-liner.com to find out how we can assist...
