The Mess in Missouri

Chris Hayes from Fox2 News in St Louis, Missouri recently interviewed me for a story he did about a water tank in Leadwood, Missouri. The tank had been inspected once about 17 years ago and as far as anyone knew, had never been cleaned. Chris was contacted by some residents of the community who had brown water coming out of their taps.

I was happy to contribute both video and comments to this story. Water storage tanks should be inspected yearly for public safety, even if the state they are in has no regulations at all. Mr. Hayes did a great job. He found the larger systems around St. Louis had all been recently inspected. Many smaller systems seem to fall back on regulations to decide what is really important.

Although the state of Missouri has no written regulation or rules on when tanks should be inspected they do say this about the inspection and cleaning of water storage tanks: “…clearly necessary to protect public health.”

You would not drink out of a dirty glass, why do these people have to drink water from a dirty tank?  See the video on our Company Facebook Page:

The Tank Diver

March 23, 2016 Leave a comment

We have been working on a documentary about clean drinking water for over two years. There is no shortage of water contamination issues in the news these days. Drinking water is under attack all over the country. The solution to many water problems may be as simple as keeping the tanks clean. We have an important story to tell and it’s time to raise some funds to finish it up. I hope you will be a part of this important project! https://igg.me/at/whatsinyourwater/x/11623864

You would not drink out of a dirty glass. Too many water utilities make people drink from dirty water storage tanks. The problem has remained OUT OF SIGHT AND OUT OF MIND for too long. Help us fund this project and show your support for as little as $2. Check out our preview and help us put a bright light on this dark problem.

I thought This was a great story!

Ron Perrin Clean Water Tank Project

November 7th, 2014, Ginger Allen and the CBS 11 i-Team watches as my company inspects and cleans a north Texas water tower. The tower was cleaned as a normal maintenance procedure. A light- brown dusting of sediment was removed from the interior floor before it could get deep enough to support bacteria and become a problem.  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The tower was cleaned by a Commercial Diver who was trained at OCEAN CORP, Houston, Texas. The Diver is sealed in his own environment, then washed down with a chlorine solution. Because we specialize in the inspection and cleaning of Potable Water Storage Facilities, all of our equipment is purchased for, and only used in, potable water.

This utility is doing a great job of maintaining their system. However, utility managers across the country struggle to get the funds to properly maintain their systems. The EPA is currently considering a regulation that…
