15-foot sinkhole in Kailua could take months to repair

A portion of Kanapuu Drive near the Kahako Street intersection remains closed, as well as adjacent sidewalks, as crews inspect a large sinkhole, on the shoulder of the road near a metal barrier. Engineers were not able to get too close to the collapsed pipe area down the inlet side of the sinkhole due to safety reasons, which measures 12 feet in diameter. City crews examined a large sinkhole today after it appeared on Kanapuu Drive in Kailua Bluffs following Tuesday’s heavy rains. A portion of Kanapuu Drive near the Kahako Street intersection remains closed, as well as adjacent sidewalks, as crews inspect the sinkhole, on the shoulder of the road near a metal barrier. The sinkhole, which measures at least 15 feet across, also took out part of the sidewalk. “What we discovered is a sinkhole, quite deep, anywhere from 12 to 15 feet deep,” said Robert Kroning, director of the city’s Department of Design and Construction. “We sent some engineers down the inlet side. They walked in and learned that there has been a collapse in that drain pipe — it’s a drain pipe that we’re talking about, corrugated, metal pipe, 12-foot diameter.” Kroning said the city does not know how the collapse h...

Actionable, reliable and all-inclusive report on Global Spiral Membrane Market 2018 by Manufacturers, Countries, Type and Application, Forecast to 2025 published by Decision Market Reports provides exhaustive research capabilities, strong analytics services and data validation. According to Verified Market Research, The Global Spiral Membrane Market was valued at USD 5.08 Billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 10.62 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.60% from 2019 to 2026. What are Spiral Membranes? Spiral wound membranes are defined as tightly packed filter media in which a permeable membrane is wrapped around a center core in a spiral fashion similar to a roll of fabric. The permeable membrane is sealed at the edges and is gapped with a spacer material that allows flow of the liquid that is to be filtered. Spiral membranes have a compact layout and high membrane area per element making them ideal for high-flow applications with minimal or no suspended solids. They have the advantage of low component and operating costs. Spiral membranes are widely used for many applications within industries such as food, beverage, dairy, biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Dow...
