Plastic is a material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organics that are malleable and can be molded into solid objects of diverse shapes. Plastics are typically organic polymers of high molecular mass, but they often contain other substances. They are usually synthetic, most commonly derived from petrochemicals, but many are partially natural. Plasticity is the general property of all materials that are able to irreversibly deform without breaking, but this occurs to such a degree with this class of moldable polymers that their name is an emphasis on this ability.

The Jumbo Combo features a 5,250 CFM 27-inch Hg blower, the most powerful in the industry. It is ideally suited for large-diameter pipe cleaning jobs that smaller water pumps and vacuum systems would not be able to complete effectively or efficiently. The water pump on the Jumbo Combo works

Project Profile: Testing Storm Drain Protection in Los Angeles

Project Profile: Testing Storm Drain Protection in Los Angeles

The city of Los Angeles, CA, needed an alternative to the stainless steel automatic retractable screens (ARS) it had been using to protect storm drain inlets. Many ARS systems available have a high percentage of operational and maintenance problems during the rainy season. Clogging occurs often during these times and

Editor’s Comments: Ripple Effect

A ripple effect has already begun since waste officials in China announced to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in July that they would no longer be accepting various solid waste and recycling materials at the end of the year. Those ripples can be seen from Hong Kong to mainland China

Perilous Waters

Perilous Waters

“Peligro,” the sign reads—danger. Despite this warning, people have filed through gaps in fences and have waited patiently to fill buckets, jugs, and bottles with water from a spigot on an abandoned lot, the Washington Post reports. In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, citizens of Puerto Rico are in desperate

Innovations in Smart Window Coverings

Prior to the fourth century A.D., windows were typically holes in walls, usually covered with animal hides, cloth, wood, or shutters. In some places, translucent animal horns, thin slices of marble, or even paper were set in frameworks of wood, iron, or lead.

Soil Water Sensors

Soil Water Sensors

SOIL MOISTURE MONITORING CAN be useful as an irrigation management tool for both landscapes and agriculture, sometimes replacing an evapotranspiration-based (ET) approach or as a useful check on ET-based approaches since the latter tend to drift off target over time. All moisture sensors, also known as soil water sensors, measure

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

With traditional sediment control devices like straw wattles and silt fence, a drop-and-go installation style could be disastrous. Proper trenching, staking, and preparation of the BMP-soil interface means the difference between success and failure, which has led many manufacturers of sediment control products to design the next generation of more
