San Diego’s Safe, Sound and Sustainable Recycled Water

In San Diego, recycled water has become a resourceful and useful means of local water supply. The recycled water is used to irrigate fairgrounds, golf courses, parks, as well as school properties. Recently, the Reclamation system was upgraded to include an additional reservoir, as well as more distribution pipelines. The advanced water treatment system has greatly improved the city’s recycled water quality. Additionally, the recycled water salinity levels have been significantly reduced, which is a major benefit for homeowners using the water for irrigation. The arid San Diego area relies heavily on water imported from the Colorado River and Northern California. Recycled water is a constructive way to help the community conserve water. The city has also experimented with capturing urban runoff to protect beaches and lagoons, then redirecting that water to the sewer system for treatment and reuse. Water conservation will remain an important priority for San Diego neighborhoods. Because of this, the city has reinvented the mainstream car washing method by using technology which recycles water and filters it for future use. This technique will save up to three-quarters of the water that patrons would normally use at home. A typical at-home car wash uses approximately 140 gallons of water. Furthermore, the water used at home drains directly into local waterways, along with the chemicals in the water. The water that is not recycled at a public car wash is sent to the sewer system for further processing, safeguarding the waterways and local wildlife from contaminants. San Diego, you’re invited!! Perma-Liner Industries requests your attendance at our Open House in Anaheim, CA. It’s taking place for three days from June 13th –June 15th and we want to see you there! It’ll be chock-full of live demonstrations and information on all of the CIPP technology available. Don’t miss this! Call us to confirm your reservation @...

Know your Sewer System- Prepare for a Disaster

Know your Sewer System- Prepare for a Disaster

When a natural disaster occurs, it’s important to know how to protect yourself and your belongings. It’s a good idea to know the basics in order to be safe and prepared.  Be sure to strap down your water heater so it meets safety codes. Consider hiring a professional plumber for this.  In California, when an earthquake strikes you’ll need to identify the location of your home’s water, gas and electric main shutoffs valves and switches.  Remove all flammable liquids from the living areas of your home. Put them in the garage or another outside storage area. To help prevent a fire, store them away from heat sources, such as a water heater or furnace. If your home has a chimney, consider securing it to the roof with sheet metal straps.  For flooding, in addition to sandbagging and other preventative measures, be sure to review your policy and know what’s covered in the event of property damage. Also, make sure your septic tank and sewer are inspected and cleaned at the start of every season. During periods of heavy rainfall, clogged sewers and overtaxed septic tanks are disasters waiting to happen. Consider installing a sump pump to drain out unwanted standing water. There are a few helpful items to have in a disaster preparedness kit- such as blankets, clean clothes, flashlights and a respiratory mask, to name a few. California: Are you ready for this? We are excited to inform you that Perma-liner Industries will be in town on December 6th– 8th for our Trenchless Tour!! We’ve been planning for three fun-filled days of Live Demonstrations in Concord. Every day will consist of different demos using our patented technology including Perma-Main™ Continuous Lining, Top Gun and Sectional Point Repair and much more. It’s the educational event of the season and we’d like to see you there!!  Stay tuned for more info or go to www.perma-liner.com....

Carlsbad’s Strategy to Sustain Water Supply

Carlsbad’s Strategy to Sustain Water Supply

The City of Carlsbad is revising and extending their resources for the purpose of infrastructure improvements, and meeting the rising demands of the Water Utility. The persistent drought has caused the city to strive for inventive ways for the limited water supply go further to accommodate needs. Recycled water from the plant will replace potable water, now used to irrigate a nearby golf course and other areas. It can also be transmitted into a new storage reservoir, currently in construction. The use of recycled H2O is conducive to lowering costs and safeguarding the interests of the community. The Carlsbad recycling plant uses filtration, micro filtration and disinfection to clean wastewater and make it suitable for irrigation and industrial uses. Carlsbad is increasing its recycling plant’s peak capacity from the present 4,100 acre-feet per year to more than 7,200 acre-feet per year. An acre-foot is enough water to cover an acre one foot deep, or to meet the needs of two typical families of four for a year. The city is in the process of building a second reservoir for recycled water and expanding its delivery system by adding 18 miles of pipe to its existing 79-mile distribution system. The expansion is expected to meet approximately one-third of the city’s needs.

San Diego and the Reconditioning of Infrastructure

San Diego and the Reconditioning of Infrastructure

With more than 2,500 miles of roads, nearly 5,000 miles of sidewalks, and a maze of underground pipes and sewer lines, San Diego focal point is on improving the infrastructure that has been in need of repair.  Sewer structures along with libraries, police and fire stations, parks, streets, and storm drains are up for renewal.  It is thought that basic infrastructure investments have been delayed due to the pension crisis and Great Recession.  There have been water main breaks, sinkholes and dilapidated passageways in aging areas of the city, that have been on stand-by for maintenance until now .  The 21st Century Investment Program is currently underway with an approximate funding of $4 billion to $5 billion, specifically designated for infrastructure projects.  The reinvestment will also include an initiative to assist with the needs of veterans through a repair program for homes. Interesting fact: the City of San Diego was incorporated in 1850 with a population of 650. Citizens obtained most of their water from the San Diego River and a few private wells.
