Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless process, making for a more cost-effective, environmentally friendly process that is completed more quickly and with fewer impacts and disruptions than pipe replacement.

Mayor Barry visits sewer rehabilitation project

Mayor Barry visits sewer rehabilitation projectMayor Megan Barry recently visited Clean Water Nashville’s 28th Avenue Rehabilitation – Area 1 project site to learn more about how Nashville’s aging sewer infrastructure is being renewed. As pictured, B.J. Kersteins of Insituform Technologies, Inc. (the construction contractor for this work) shows Mayor Barry a cured-in-place pipe liner. The pipe liner is inserted in the sewer to renew the system without excavating streets.

Music City Center features green roof

The recently completed Music City Center is on track to be certified Silver Level LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – by the U.S. Green Building Council. One of the elements that will be considered during the certification process is the building’s green roof, designed to reduce the convention center’s overall energy usage. Four acres of the roof are made up of 14 different types of vegetation, landscaped to reflect Tennessee’s rolling hills. The green roof also absorbs rainfall, reducing the amount of storm water runoff. Some rainfall will find its way into a 360,000 gallon collection tank on the roof, and the collected water will be used to irrigate the roof and other landscaping.
