Rehabilitating the Memphis Sewer System, Proactively

Memphis has entered into a consent decree that requires assessments of the sewer system.  The City is doing all it needs to do in order to clean up the sanitary sewers in neighborhoods.  The outline for the overhaul is to focus on repairing the sewer lines and manholes.  Areas of Midtown, downtown, and Hickory Hill will all be included in what’s being called SARP10 for the Sewer Assessment and Rehabilitation Program.  The project is estimated to cost $250 million and will take nearly a decade to complete.  This initiative is expected to go a long way in eliminating the multiple sanitary sewer overflows, as well as, minimizing breaks in the pipelines. The basic premise for the city’s sewer system dates back to the late 1870s, following the Yellow Fever epidemic that killed 5,000 Memphians. That’s when George Waring, Jr., a drainage engineer for New York’s Central Park, developed a state-of-the-art (for the time) system that separated the sanitary system from the storm water. Most of the original system was made from wooden pipes, although, almost all of those have been replaced over the years. So far, only one wooden pipe was discovered during the assessment.  The City also plans to solicit the help of volunteers to inform residents of various tests that will be performed to ensure the pipelines are intact and free from leaks or if there is evidence of a pipeline in need of repair.

Methods Used For Sewer Lateral Inspection

Methods Used For Sewer Lateral Inspection

There are various methods adopted by cities to maintain and inspect sewer laterals.  There must be careful assessments and recordkeeping to determine the necessity of rehabilitating and repairing a sewer line.  If infiltration is a significant issue within your system, it is almost guaranteed that private laterals are a part of the problem. An issue for most municipalities when considering development of a lateral rehabilitation program is whether the cost and effort of the program can be justified by the potential public benefit (e.g., reduced treatment costs, reclaiming capacity, and avoiding sewage overflows). There are numerous examples of municipalities that have implemented an infiltration reduction program and many of them have included private laterals.  There are standard means of detection for problematic areas of the sewer structure, as well as alternative means of discovery.  The differing techniques for detection include: building inspections that will identify uncapped cleanouts.  Smoke testing, which will uncover defective service laterals.  Dye water flooding is an alternate means of discovering faulty pipes and pressure testing will identify both passive and active leaks.  Laterals may also be rehabilitated at the same time as mainline segments, as was done in Nashville. Perma-liner has some good news!!  We are introducing a zero down, no payments for 90 days on our state of the art 22 foot Perma-Main Turn Key Trailer.  We also include training for this trailer system.  This is our Top Gun system that can rehabilitate 6”-10” diameter pipelines.  There are many other points to consider when using this this powerhouse for installation purposes.  A project that is consists of three installations each approximately 500 ft. can be completed in 3 days versus the 9 day time frame for a conventional dig.  To find out more about this package deal, call us or go online to...

Residents of Oak Ridge, the task of rehabilitating your sewer is in full swing this month. The City has been working to make the needed repairs to many areas of Turtle Park. This has been an ongoing project, which includes a long list of homes that are included in these enhancements to the sewer system. The scope of this renovation will be vast and encompasses pipelines within yards, roadways and City easements. Homeowners can expect the completion of construction to be next month. Some of the repairs being made involve 34 point repairs of existing gravity sewers, installation of 20 new manhole frames and covers and rehabilitation of 1,200 vertical feet of existing sanitary sewer manholes, to name a few. It is recommended to use precautions when travelling in and around Turtle Park.

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...
