Lexington’s Operation Upstream for Storm Drains

Lexington’s Operation Upstream for Storm Drains

The City of Lexington is heading up a proactive community project: stenciling storm drains to prevent storm water pollution.  The community is coming together for the benefit of keeping pollutants that enter the waterways to a minimum. Many people do not know that storm drains lead directly to our waterways. Everything that enters a storm drain or storm inlet is washed into nearby streams, lakes, and rivers without going through a treatment plant. Only rainwater should go down the drain. Non-point source pollution, also called storm water runoff or urban runoff pollution, is caused when rainfall carries pollutants from roads, yards, buildings, and other surfaces into waterways. Because the pollution comes from many different places, it cannot be traced to a “point source” such as a factory or plant.  Pesticides, fertilizers, motor oil, paint, antifreeze, solvents, pet wastes, grass clippings, and yard waste can all harm our water sources if they end up in storm drains due to dumping or runoff.  Storm drains lead into a separate system, apart from the system that carries wastewater, and empties directly into our streams, rivers, and lakes. When motor oil is poured into the storm drain or pet waste is washed into an inlet, all of the bacteria and chemicals end up in the closest waterway. Storm drain stenciling helps educate citizens about water quality and tells people not to pour any chemicals or wastes down storm inlets or drains.  There are over 20,000 storm drains and inlets in Lexington so there are plenty to choose from.  Due to safety concerns, the City advises that you stencil in teams of 2-4 people. This allows at least one person to stencil while one person watches for traffic. The Division of Environmental Services has stenciling kits for you to sign out.

Sinkholes and Sewer on the Mend in Evansville

Sinkholes and Sewer on the Mend in Evansville

Evansville residents think it’s high time for repairs to be made to sinkholes in their neighborhood. The City has assured homeowners that along with sewer repairs, the sinkholes will be fixed, as well. For about a year, the community has been avoiding the mesh fence that surrounds the sunken area near a closed road. The new sewer line is expected to be fully repaired by fall of this year. The City has committed to making street repairs following the sewer pipeline enhancements. The community agrees that the sinkholes have been an eyesore and have not been in the best interest of the people that live in the area. The City has confirmed that the sinkholes were caused by a defect in the sewer line. When dirt populated the pipeline, sinkholes began forming. Currently, a new lining is being positioned from manhole to manhole near Delaware and Boeke St. The City intends to reopen these roads when all repairs have been finalized. Perma-Liner Industries has got you covered! We are pleased to offer you our best trenchless equipment with our Cured-in Place method for pipeline repair and rehabilitation.

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...
