New White Paper: Prescription for Healthy Sewers
In 2006, the U.S. experienced more than 20,000 beach closures due to sanitary sewer overflows. This single statistic underscores the critical role sewers play in maintaining both public health and the health of our environment.
Colloquially, the term “healthy” refers to a biological system performing optimally—that system can be human or some other organism, or it can be the broader ecosystem that supports all life. By the same definition, a sewer can be regarded in terms of its health; a sewer is a biological system whose optimum performance determines not only its own capacity and lifespan, but the health of the people and the ecosystem it’s designed to serve.
At Helix, our research focuses on maintaining optimal sewer function through the combined application of beneficial microbes and a non-hazardous molecular neutralizer.
We believe these technologies can be made accessible to municipalities in a way that is turn-key, data-driven and ROI-positive.
In a new FREE white paper, we look at two of the most significant factors impacting sewer health: the accumulation of fats, oils and grease (FOG) and the production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). We examine the risks they pose, and how they can be mitigated successfully, cost-effectively and simultaneously.
