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 Maintains Sewer Integrity and Material Recycling Initiatives

Dallas Maintains Sewer Integrity and Material Recycling Initiatives

Many Dallas communities are now developing strategies for various means of recycling and composting, in order to limit waste. Many of these techniques are performed by individuals and citizens of the community. Alternatively, it takes a more in-depth process to address composting large amounts of landscape waste. The city has incorporated regional programs in response to neighborhood needs. Several means of composting have been implemented, which will accompany other resourceful projects, designed to further the initiative. The city has relied on data from local neighborhoods as a means of outlining and demonstrating the most effective approach in landscape waste management. In doing so, residents have also become more aware of best practices for the integrity of the sewer systems. Recently, the city opened a brand new, one-of-a-kind, Materials Recycling Facility. The system was designed with the city’s goal in mind of getting closer to zero-waste by the year 2040. With the successful processing of over 1,000 tons of material in the first two weeks opening, the new facility will be an effective tool to meet the sustainable intent. The facility processes more than 250 tons of recyclable material each day and will process and recycle approximately 5,000 tons of materials every month. The facility will accept all single stream material from the city of Dallas and the city of University Park. Dallas, are you looking for a safe, reliable plumber known for quality workmanship?

Dallas Schedules Sewer Maintenance and Sewer Overflow Advisory

Dallas Schedules Sewer Maintenance and Sewer Overflow Advisory

The city of Dallas has a worklist for the New Year that includes the extensive rehabilitation of streets and sidewalks and much-needed sewer overhauls. Recently, the city experienced a large sewer overflow, due to a pipeline collapse in a residential neighborhood. The estimated overflow was more than 300,000 gallons, making the upgrades even more imperative. The city is currently advising homeowner’s to use caution when using water supply wells. Preferably, use only water that has been distilled or boiled for at least one minute for all personal uses including drinking, cooking, and bathing. Residents with private water wells should have their well water tested and disinfected, if necessary, prior to discontinuing distillation or boiling. In an effort to correct the flooding the city has sustained, as well as enhance the sewer system, the Sewer Rehabilitation Project was recently approved and is currently underway. The project will systematically address a portion of the city’s pipelining infrastructures which will include a 42-inch trunk line running along the west side of the city. The rehabilitation project is anticipated to continue through the year. Construction experts and the city’s engineering consultants are collaborating on a five-area plan for the upcoming repairs.   Looking for a volunteer opportunity in Dallas? The city has created an experimental and creative way for local residents to get involved.  Volunteers throughout Dallas, as well as neighboring cities, will have the opportunity to collect and test water samples from water bodies just like the ones you find in your backyard. The results will then be made part of a statewide database for all residents of Texas to be able to monitor the results. It’ll be a fun way to spend time with your family, or perhaps even a means to get volunteer hours for a school requirement. Whatever the case may be, it will be an enjoyable learning...

Dallas’ Proactive Effort to Keep Sewers Unimpaired

Dallas’ Proactive Effort to Keep Sewers Unimpaired

The city of Dallas is keeping things moving with a united resolve, as the heavy rainfall of recent days has placed quite a burden on the sewer system. Residents in many neighborhoods have been affected by the record-setting rainfall. Sewer overflows have been tallied in amounts of 100,000 gallons and greater in several locations. The state requires public notifications for spills of more than 100,000 gallons or when a spill occurs within a half mile of drinking sources.  In most cases, an average household uses 100,000 gallons of water a year, both indoor and outdoor.  Overflows can be caused by the inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the collection system. Heavy rain places a burden on aging sewers that are not designed to hold rainfall or to drain from the property, broken pipes or improperly connected sewer service lines. The city has addressed the issue of faulty pipelines through an Integrated Pipeline Project- a 150-mile-long water transmission system. The pipeline is designed to help meet water demands within Dallas and surrounding counties. The city of Dallas will save up to $500 million in capital expenses and potentially more than $1 billion over the life of the project. The advanced infrastructure project has received awards for a cohesive effort in sustainability and design.   Grease disposal tip: plumbing problems can result from pouring grease and food scraps down household drains. Pipe blockage can be prevented by scraping the excess from plates, pots, pans, utensils, and grills into a can or the trash. The garbage disposal is no place for grease. Proper disposal of grease will keep it out of the sewer system and away from causing damage to sewage and drain pipes as well as the environment. A collective effort can help keep sewer systems free from back-ups and harmful debris. Contact us...
