Water Mains: An Aging and Crumbling Infrastructure

Water Mains: An Aging and Crumbling Infrastructure

Water infrastructure is invisible to people, but when one fails, it becomes incredibly noticeable. Atlantic City, along with the state of New Jersey, are seeing an increase in failing water and sewer mains, which can pose potential health issues amongst those living there. This growing trend is in part due to the age of the structures, as well as underfunding. The recent nor’easters have not helped the cause. The cost of fixing the infrastructures, in the short-term, is high but the cost of doing nothing will be much higher in the long-term. Jersey Water Works, a cross-sector collaborative working to transform New Jersey’s inadequate water infrastructure through sustainable, cost-effective solutions that provide communities with clean water and waterways; healthier, safer neighborhoods; local jobs; flood and climate resilience; and economic growth, recently distributed a report detailing the growing concerns and what can be done to move New Jersey’s water systems into the 21st century. The report can be found here. Perma-Liner™ Industries is the leading manufacturer and of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America.

New Jersey’s Top Universities Launch Flooding Prevention Project

New Jersey’s Top Universities Launch Flooding Prevention Project

New Jersey is home to several outstanding universities, many of which are on a path to leading sustainable causes. From the time that Superstorm Sandy occurred, renowned Universities such as Princeton and Rutgers have made continuous efforts to protect the vulnerable areas of their nearby and respective cities. An initiative currently in process is aimed specifically at controlling the flooding which surfaces in low-lying terrain. An important part of the University project consists of installing rain gardens and rain barrels to block rainwater, an underground stormwater detention basin, as well as extensive wetland restoration. The Students have also designed several other green infrastructure projects. The first is a 50-by-40-foot depression in the ground with 500 plants and 30 shrubs. This is a 2,000 square-foot garden that can handle nearly 15,000 gallons of water. One of the rain gardens was designed to capture and treat stormwater runoff from Memorial Field Park near Tremley Point. The second rain garden, which is approximately 200 feet long and 15 feet wide, will collect runoff from a parking lot and baseball field in Memorial Field Park. This particular garden can capture up to 22,500 gallons of water. Sewer work advisory for Princeton: A Snowden Lane Sewer Project has recently begun and here’s what you can expect when traveling in the area of construction-Snowden Lane, between Barbara Smoyer Park and the stream culvert near the intersection of Overbrook Drive will only be affected in the southbound lane due to a sanitary sewer pipe installation. During the process, Snowden Lane will be closed to through traffic between Herrontown Road and Overbrook Drive. Signs will be visible and work will be conducted during the day, beginning at 7 am. Atlantic City, have you made your plans to attend our Open House? We hope so! It’s in Anaheim, CA and your presence is requested!
