Providing services to any community is an ongoing issue that involves quite a bit of public trust. One only need to mention Flint, Michigan to get a sense of just how damaging failure to take responsibilities seriously can impact a community. There are lots of challenges that any municipality faces, among them budget concerns and infrastructure. In fact, budget constraints have a direct impact on the quality of infrastructure. And while few want to see their taxes raised, everyone wants to enjoy clean water. Fortunately, thoughtful equipment choices can impact both.
There is no question that many of America’s municipalities have aging infrastructure services and equipment. Whether it is the maintenance of roads throughout the seasons, the crumbling bridges or the sewage and water lines, the disruption of any one of these things can cause chaos in a community. Underground lines are particularly important, because residents don’t always know their condition; it isn’t the same as seeing the sidewalk. So too often, underground infrastructure is ignored – to the peril of the community.
Upgrading underground infrastructure involves the use of static mixers both for new waste treatment methods but also in order to ensure clean water. Water treatment chemical flash mixers add chemical additives into the water in order to improve its quality or treat sewage. Ozone mixers are also popular for cleaner water. But because municipalities also face budget crunches, it is important to note that Komax’s chemical flash mixer actually results in a 90% energy savings due to the low pressure drop mixing compared to mechanical mixers. There are few other places with a rate of return like that!
Work with an expert like Komax to determine how your municipality’s issues can be faced head on with quality equipment.
