26 Jun Seattle’s Unusual Sewer Past: Could It Affect The Future?
Seattle is a great city, boasting of spectacular views and an ultra-clean environment. Seattle’s sewer history is rather interesting. Seattle’s construction started dating back to the 1860’s, before the construction, the area was not land but water. When the first pioneers set their eyes on logging possibilities they filled in the bay and named it Seattle. In doing this it caused quite a bit of sewer interruptions when the tide came in, often flooding more than twice a day, backing up toilets. After an unfortunate fire in 1889 the city had to rebuild and with that in mind they built the city to be 8 to 32 feet higher to avoid the past flooding and sewage problems that plagued the city. Raising the city did help and the city stopped flooding and the sewage problem was corrected. Now, Seattle, this was more than 124 years old and the old structures are still underneath the city and they are decaying. This will ultimately put weight and strain on existing pipes that have been there forever. Perma-Liner has closed circuit camera that we can send down to take a look at problematic aging pipes and be able to rehab them with trenchless technology. This mean no disrupting Seattle’s sensitive infrastructure and saving you money at the same time.
