EPA Providing Help for America’s $270 Billion Wastewater Infrastructure Needs
National and local Finance Centers helping identify financing strategies and providing financial assistance
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched the Water Infrastructure and Resiliency Finance Center in January 2015 to work with states and communities to find funding for drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure modernization. According to a January 14 article in Water World, the center recently selected regional Environmental Finance Centers to help communities develop sustainable “how-to-pay” solutions. EPA also offers direct financial assistance through low-interest loans and grants.

Case Study: Deteriorated Piping Immersed in Treatment Tank Brought Back to Original Condition in Less Than a Week with HydraWrap
Water Treatment Plant
A section of piping that is immersed in a treatment tank had several deteriorated areas that required repair.
The solution utilized the HydraWrap Structural Composite Repair System, as well as the HydraTite® NSF61 8001 WaterLine Epoxy.
The customer requested that the pipe system be reinforced and brought back to its original design condition and that the repair be made in a very quick turnaround.
The HydraWrap composite repair was designed to reinforce an 8" diameter carbon steel supply pipe with a maximum design pressure of 90 psi. The design of the HydraWrap was based on limiting the strain in the composite repair to the allowable strains recommended by ASME. After applying the HydraWrap system was top coated with HydraTech's NSF61 8001 WaterLine epoxy. The project took less than a week to perform.

Bet You Didn’t Know…
Before there were clocks, there were candle clocks that burned a set number of hours. For an alarm, you pushed a nail into the desired time point on the candle, and when it melted to that point, the nail would fall and clank on the metal holder, which would alert you – time to go!
