Plumbing Guidelines in Memphis: Your Best Defense

Plumbing Guidelines in Memphis: Your Best Defense

When looking for a plumber in Memphis, it’s important to know that there are guidelines to be followed by the International Plumbing Code (IPC). The IPC sets minimum regulations for plumbing systems using both prescriptive and performance-related provisions covering topics such as backflow prevention, fixtures & fittings, water supply and distribution piping, storm drainage and non-potable water systems (rainwater, gray water, reclaimed water) and more. No matter how small the job, it’s a good idea to know the right questions to ask to ensure the best, most professional service.  In some cases, homeowners can incur fines for having faulty plumbing installed, and selling a house with plumbing that doesn’t stand up to code will cause major issues. Are you insured? Your plumber must have insurance to cover the cost of any direct or ancillary damages that may occur while repairs are being made. Critically, this insurance must also cover potential injuries while working on your home so you are clear of all responsibility. Another question might be how do you diagnose the problem? Some repairs are easy to diagnose with a quick visual inspection or even over the phone. For less obvious problems they will need skill and proper tools to get to the root of the issue. Do they have pipe inspection cameras that allow them to peer into pipes for a speedy diagnosis? Do they have a checklist to diagnose all potential problems? Starting work without a full picture of the problem can lead to more costs down the road. If a pipeline breaks, is leaking or clogged, a homeowner’s best defense will be to use local, licensed contractors who are familiar with City codes and can ensure a timely resolution to the issue. Perma-Liner Industries will always refer you to the most reputable, certified and highly qualified plumber right where you live. Don’t hesitate to call us so we can offer you our best! 1-866-336-2568 or go online to...

Broken Sewer Line Advisories for Memphis

Broken Sewer Line Advisories for Memphis

The city of Memphis has had unfortunate instances of sewer overflows this month.  This week there were reports of another overspill occurrence which discharged approximately 1 million gallons/a day of wastewater into the Mississippi River tributary.  Workers contained the area and made emergency repairs to prevent further leakage. Although water quality testing is being performed to ensure safety, the city advises caution and avoidance of the Loosahatchie, the river that flows into the Mississippi. The break in the 42-inch sewer line occurred when nearby soil eroded and gave way due to heavy rains. The pipe was inspected several months ago without incident. Last month, another collapse occurred involving a 96-inch pipeline, which resulted in 50 million gallons of sewage per day into Cypress Creek and adjoining McKellar Lake. Similarly, these waterways also flow into the Mississippi River. The soil erosion and embankment failure are largely attributed to the record amounts of rainfall that the city sustained in March, also accounting for the most recent overflow. The city inspects sewer lines twice a year but due to the recent line breaks, the city is planning a more extensive examination of the lines in order to identify a need to address additional drawbacks. The city has 3,200 miles of underground sewer pipes and recently put into effect mandated improvements to the sewer system. Due to years of disrepair, Memphis is in the process of implementing a sure-fire approach to handling the dilemma of overflows. The cost of this rehabilitation will be approximately $250...

Nashville’s Winter Bird Banding at Warner Park

Nashville’s Winter Bird Banding at Warner Park

Warner Park Nature Center and Warner Parks in Nashville are ideal sites to view many species of wildlife.   Perching birds or ‘sparrow shaped’ birds and many other Neotropical migrants may be seen or heard in early spring and fall. Perching birds make up the largest order of birds in the world.  More than 3,000 species of birds make their home in the Neotropical Zone. This represents about one-third of the bird species in the world. Each spring, more than 150 species of Neotropical birds leave their Central and South American homes to make their way to North America to nest and rear their young.  Your back porch is a wonderful spot to observe hundreds of hummingbirds during fall migration. Something else to look forward to coming up in early January is the Winter Bird banding Program at Warner Park. The banders are ready for the cold weather! Winter bird banding focuses on catching and recording data about the winter resident bird populations.  Warner Park also participates in geocaching. Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game! Players try to locate hidden containers, called ‘geocaches’, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online. Interesting facts: A nestling (a baby bird that is featherless or incompletely feathered), if fallen from a nest, may be returned to the nest. Birds have a poor sense of smell. If humans touch a baby bird or nest it does not cause the parents to abandon the birds. After a fledgling (a fully feathered young bird) leaves the nest it may live on the ground for up to two weeks. During this time the parents still provide food and protection. Memphis, Perma-liner Industries has you covered! Go online to www.perma-liner.com to explore all we have to offer you in the trenchless, Cured in Place Pipeline industry. Or call us:...

Nashville’s Redevelopment Efforts for Environmental Sustainability

Nashville’s Redevelopment Efforts for Environmental Sustainability

The goal of Nashville’s Green Infrastructure Plan is to design a built environment that remains a functioning part of an ecosystem rather than existing apart from it. This is a relatively new approach to urban stormwater management that strategically integrates stormwater controls throughout the urban landscape. Part of Nashville’s ability to meet the challenge of balancing growth and environmental protection is through incorporating Green Infrastructure into both new and redevelopment efforts. An example of this is the use of tree box filters. Tree box filters are mini filtration areas beneath trees in in-ground containers, typically installed in urban areas. An efficient use of land, the surface appearance of a tree box is a tree or shrub in a tree grate along a curb. The vegetation sits in a concrete box of bio retention media through which street or parking lot runoff is filtered prior to discharge into the storm drain system. A single tree box can store 100-300 gallons of stormwater. Tree box filters are based on bio retention technology, with improvements in performance, reliability, pollutant removal, ease of construction, aesthetics, and maintenance costs.

The City of Franklin’s Stormwater and Erosion Origins

The City of Franklin’s Stormwater and Erosion Origins

Pollution entering Franklin’s streams and channels has many sources and entry paths. Pollutants are generally either washed into surface waters by rainfall runoff or they enter through human activities such as connecting non-storm water drains to the storm water drainage system or by someone dumping waste into drains or streams directly. Franklin has programs of education, prevention and inspection to address these environmental concerns. Rainfall induced pollution enters primarily by two methods. The first is erosion and sedimentation of sediment and the pollutants sediment contains. The second is the simple wash off of pollution that may lie on paved surfaces. There are negative influences on channels, streams and rivers when sediment enters the waterways. As sediment volumes increase in waterways, the overall capacity decreases. This causes an increase in flooding as well as creates excessive maintenance needs. There are different types of erosion that are also cause for concern, such as water and wind erosion. Construction activities often require the disturbance of streams and channels. Once vegetation or other bank protection measures are disturbed, flows may begin to erode the unprotected soil. Dust is a common concern from construction sites and originates as inorganic particle pollution from rock and soil surfaces and material storage piles. The majority of dust generated and emitted into the air at a construction site is related to earth moving operations, demolition, construction traffic on unpaved surfaces, and wind over disturbed soil surfaces.  There are five primary factors that influence erosion: soil characteristics, vegetative cover, topography, climate, and rainfall.
