Tennessee’s Loan Program Enables Chattanooga Sewer Restoration

Tennessee’s Loan Program Enables Chattanooga Sewer Restoration

The city of Chattanooga has recently been granted awarded a $42.5 million low-interest loan from the state for local wastewater infrastructure improvements. This is the largest amount approved, which includes more than $60 million in loans, to five community and wastewater authorities. The loan for Chattanooga is expressly for maintaining its water and wastewater treatment plant by way of improvements, as well as, a collection system rehabilitation project. Chattanooga is spending an estimated $250 million to rehabilitate an aging sewer system that- during heavy rains- can send hundreds of thousands of raw waste flooding into the Tennessee River water. Tennessee’s 20-year wastewater loan carries a 1.29 percent interest rate. The State Revolving Fund Loan Program provides loans that help communities, utility districts, and water and wastewater authorities finance projects that protect Tennessee’s ground and surface waters and public health. Loans are used to finance the planning, design and construction of water and wastewater facilities. The loans are channeled through two separate programs: Tennessee’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund Loan Program (CWSRF) and the state’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Loan Program (DWSRF). Over the span of nearly 30 years, Tennessee’s CWSRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion in low-interest loans. The loans and principal forgiveness help fulfill infrastructure needs that will help communities foster economic development, keeping the city moving forward. Additionally, the Environmental Protection Agency provides grants to fund the program. Repayments are returned to the program and are used to fund future loans. Interest rates are often less than local governments can find on the private market with some interest charges at zero percent. Coming soon: Perma-Liner Industries is busy making plans for you. We’re planning a “Trenchless Tour” on July 27th in Waterbury, Connecticut. Please Click Here to Register! Or call 1-866-336-2568. See you...

Memphis Sustains Recent Sewer Spills- In the Midst of Repairs

Memphis Sustains Recent Sewer Spills- In the Midst of Repairs

The city of Memphis continues the repair of the sewer line rupture that dumped at least 350 million gallons of raw sewage into McKellar Lake this spring. The repair began with a 96-inch-diameter line that gave way just months ago. While McKellar Lake has reopened as of last month, repairs to the faulty line are ongoing. The process will include the construction and operation of a temporary bypass route and conducting cleanup activities. The project will take several months to complete and will be funded through the city’s sewer fund; which gets revenues through customers’ fees. The pipeline, which carried wastewater, failed after heavy rains gradually wore away at the soil beneath it. The rupture discharged up to 50 million gallons of sewage a day into Cypress Creek. The creek is located in Southwest Memphis and empties into the Mississippi River. The recent sewage spill was the largest of three reported by the city in a three-week period.  An additional leak was also discovered in an area nearby when crews found that part of a 42-inch pipe in the area had collapsed into the Loosahatchie River, after the bank in which it was buried caved into the river. The 60-inch line will also require long-term repairs. Interesting fact: Memphis and communities across Tennessee will begin using smart meters and benefiting from efficient utility service which will create enhanced payment options and increased customer savings. Customers will benefit by having access to more data regarding energy consumption, and resources to help better manage usage. Memphis Light Gas & Water is the largest three-service public utility in the United States, with more than 1 million utility meters. 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 tuned!  Click Here to...

Nashville’s Cumberland River and its Resources

The Cumberland River is one of Nashville’s greatest resources and a special ingredient in the quality of life in Music City. The Cumberland is an attraction for water enthusiast, a destination for recreation, leisure and entertainment, and a magnet for economic investment. Much of the sewer system is old and lacks the capacity to handle the current volume of sewage and storm water. The Clean Water Nashville Overflow Abatement Program, recently established, and building upon decades of work in addressing sewer capacity issues, will update infrastructure to reduce sewer overflows.  The goal is also to reduce health risks associated with exposure to bacteria and contaminants, and improve water quality in the Cumberland River and the associated streams, creeks and tributaries. The program to improve the wastewater system infrastructure will provide lasting benefits for future generations by addressing wet weather sewer overflows and increasing the sewer capacity. For residents who would like to learn more about the happenings at the Cumberland River Center, there are a series of interesting and interactive lectures on the sustainability initiatives for the River. Discussion topics next month will be on flood risk management, hydropower, navigation, recreation, water quality, water supply, and fish and wildlife benefits for the region.
