Followup: Heater Hauler “body bag”

Hauling out old, leaking and dirty tank water heaters can be a messy job.

Don’t let kids’ future drip away

It isn’t a failing that the Detroit Public Schools Community District opened this week with all its water fountains turned off. It was the right, reasonable and responsible thing to do. Like school districts everywhere, Detroit’s buildings are aging. Unlike some districts, Detroit checked every tap and every drinking fountain and found too many of them were leaking copper and lead into the water that students would be drinking when they returned to school. So, the district did the right thing. It turned off the faucets and provided purified water dispensed from stand-alone coolers. It’s…

Environment: Alternative water sources – Greywater reuse

Traditionally, each step of the human water cycle — how we acquire, treat, use, treat again, and dispose of the water, was dealt with as discrete, isolated activities. Separate departments, divisions, and districts were created to handle each of these isolated activities. Unfortunately, this traditional recycled water paradigm sometimes also comes with a high-priced additional expense of duplicate infrastructure to re-transport the recycled water back to the users, thus limiting the number of users that can be served. The main use of recycled water is irrigation of crops and large lan…
