Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. (“Perma-Liner”), the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, is introducing a new high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin called Perma-Liner™ Vinyl Ester.

America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

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...

Louisville’s Eye on Climate Change and Economy

Louisville’s Eye on Climate Change and Economy

Climate is an important influence upon our economy and the lifestyles of people in communities throughout Kentucky. However, climate is variable. The city of Louisville recently analyzed periods of warming and cooling which occurred in the past Century, along with precipitation data. Kentucky’s climate has been warming since the most recent cool period of the 1960 through the 70’s. The Metropolitan Sewer District board is reviewing a possible rate increase to help cover some $1 billion in capital projects.  Recent reports show how the frequency of intense storms-those dropping three inches of rain or more-have doubled within the last decade with experts warning of global warming which would subsequently stir up bigger storms, notwithstanding the longer periods of drought.  Weather radar that has been studied shows the frequency of three-inch rains in local areas that are expected to increase from one every 2.6 years to one every year. Although, rainfall totals can vary widely across the county during any storm. With more flooding events likely, the city is recommending upgrades, county-wide, improving drainage system capabilities. A side note…When flooding occurs the flood pumping stations can be useful in order to pump out stored rainy sewage waters. Such is the case for the nearly 65-year-old Paddy’s Run Flood Pumping Station in West Louisville. The station may now run for months in a year, instead of only a few days a year as it is has been a vital component of recent wet weather events. More than half of the 16 flood pumping stations are beyond their 50-year designed lifespan. The expected increase will also address the pumping stations and there current state of usefulness. Coming soon: Perma-Liner Industries is busy making plans for you. We’re planning a “Trenchless Tour” on July 27th in the New England area. We’ll be posting more information on this spectacular event…stay...
