DALLAS- You’re On! The WEQ Fair is HERE this year!

The city of Dallas has got it going on!! Lots of things happening here on behalf of new and improved water infrastructure systems. Not only has the city replaced and upgraded all of their water meters for better accuracy, established extensive programs to assist homeowners with their utilities, as well as investing in several current projects to enhance water, wastewater and storm drainage systems city-wide. While the city is on a transformative pathway to ‘all things better’ for vital infrastructures, even statewide, there is also a timely plan to host the 2nd annual Wastewater Equipment Fair, also known as-WEQ.  Save the date! It’s happening next month on April 4th and 5th. Last year’s inaugural event for the Fair was a great success with many who attended the event. This year is expected to be twice the attendance in Big D! The event will take place in Fair Park-Lot 12A and will be outdoors. Expect to be impressed with a full line up and display of Perma-Liner Industries demonstrations and equipment, as well as industrial wastewater equipment that will include sewer cleaning, inspection camera systems, vacuum trucks, pumps and more. The schedule of events will begin at noon on Tuesday, April 4. This is a hands-on event so you’ll really get a close up look at all of the equipment that has made the water industry the integral component that it is today. Whether you’re already in Dallas or perhaps need to take a drive or fly, come on out to see us. We’re looking forward to you being there! Here’s the Perma-Liner...

The University of Texas Develops Trouble-Free Infrastructure Tool

Jan 30

The University of Texas Develops Trouble-Free Infrastructure Tool

The Center for Infrastructure Modeling and Management at the University of Texas will develop and improve an open source water infrastructure model. This will be used as an important tool, in order to assist communities throughout the city, with issues pertaining to their water infrastructures. The city of Dallas, as well as the vast majority of cities statewide, are struggling to manage flooding and pollution from storm water runoff, and climate change. The University’s mission is to demonstrate how neighborhoods can utilize green infrastructures to combat many of the present day challenges relating to stormwater management. One of the implemented tools will consist of an interactive website; to allow for community engagement with residents who are interested in water infrastructure modeling. The focus will primarily be on cities, water, and energy, as well as the greater implementation of tools to solve more of the substantially related difficulties. The Storm Water Management Model- a water quality simulation model used throughout the world- will be the most valuable tool for planning, analysis, and design related to storm water runoff, sewers, and other drainage systems. The current difficulties range from water losses due to leaks in decaying infrastructure, to the public health hazards of contamination. Interesting fact: Dallas did you know? Residents can estimate monthly water charges- based on the amount of gallons you expect to consume for the month- using an online calculator. This will be based on a 30-day billing cycle. Your actual residential water charges may vary depending on any rate changes. If you have an account with more than one meter, you will need to run the calculator for each meter. An example of use: if you want to estimate the cost of 5,000 gallons of water, enter 50 in the designated space; if you want to estimate 10,000 gallons, enter...

San Antonio’s Water System and Discount Programs

San Antonio’s water and wastewater infrastructure is the massive system of pipes, water wells, pumps, storage tanks, treatment facilities, and pump stations that is mostly below ground. The city has more than 9,000 miles of water and sewer mains buried below the 560-square miles that San Antonio Water System serves – enough to stretch from South Texas to Australia. San Antonio Water System offers an Affordability Discount to its low-income residential customers who meet the income eligibility requirements. The discount will range from $3.63 to $14.35 per month. The amount of discount a customer receives is based upon the household size, household income and type of service provided. The Affordability Discount will be effective from the date of certification for two years. Customers who are certified to receive the discount this year will be required to recertify their income and family size prior to receiving the discount in future years. There are also other programs, such as the Water Saver Landscape coupon and educational programs that reach out to all area residents. Interesting fact: Did you know water pressure within the San Antonio service area can range from 35 to 175 pounds? High pressure can be controlled by a pressure-reducing valve (PRV) installed on the property owner’s side of the water meter.

Permanent Flowmeters Installed in Dallas

Nov 13

Permanent Flowmeters Installed in Dallas

The history of the Dallas sewage collection system predates the turn of the century. In 1876, the first 24-inch sewer pipe was built in downtown Dallas, transporting wastewater to the river. What is now known as the wastewater collection system, however, began operating in the early 1900s. The collection system has grown with the city and now serves a population of more than 1.1 million people through approximately 4,100 miles of sanitary sewer mains. Dallas is now in the process of implementing a system to monitor the wastewater levels and flows. The project is part of the recommendations resulting from the Major Interceptor Study of the Wastewater Master Plan update. Once this system is in place, wastewater collection and wastewater treatment plants will receive real time flow information from as many as 70 sites throughout the city. The installation of the permanent flowmeters at key locations throughout the city is the latest phase in a multi-year project. Approximately 15 of the flowmeters will be installed permanently in the Dallas sewer system during the first phase. The long-term meters will monitor the system, look at the trends as they develop and evaluate how the system is performing hydraulically. In addition, the permanent flowmeters will be employed to keep the dynamic hydraulic model calibrated for wet and dry weather flows.
