The Leaching World Below Our Garbage

In 1935 the Fresno Municipal Sanitary Landfill opened in California as a model of contemporary landfill design. Trash brought to the site was compacted and covered with dirt in stark contrast to other landfills of the time that did little more than dump the waste in a large pit at the edge of town. The Fresno landfill remained in use until 1989 when it was added to the EPA’s National Priorities List of sites contaminated by hazardous waste that pose a risk to human health or the environment. Over the years, the design and maintenance of landfills have advanced. Gone are the days of oozing, festering city dumps that poisoned drinking water and killed fish. Landfills today are feats of engineering that control decomposition, collect off-gassing, and protect the surrounding environment from contamination.

Airport Maintenance: From Surface Sanitation to the HVAC System

The Los Angeles Airport saw 87.5 million passengers pass through in 2018 making it one of the busiest airports in the United States. Keeping a facility this size clean is a complex and ongoing task. In addition to the seemingly endless visible space to clean, the inner workings of the HVAC system cannot be ignored.

Airports terminals are large buildings with complicated HVAC systems that include giant chillers, high-capacity cooling towers, and enormous air handlers. These systems run 24 hours per day, 365 days per year and rarely see any downtime. With near constant operation, an airport HVAC system must undergo routine maintenance to prevent unplanned breakdowns.

Special Considerations for Cleaning HVAC Equipment on Rooftops

When architects and engineers design a new building, the location of mechanical equipment is always an important consideration. In most cases, HVAC system components like ductwork and piping are installed so building occupants cannot see them. Ductwork is run above the ceiling, piping in chases, and equipment is usually installed on the roof out of sight and out of mind. Out of sight, is good for aesthetics, but for the technicians that have to keep roof mounted HVAC equipment maintained, out of mind can make their work harder.

Keeping High Performance Student Athletes Safer with Goodway

CBS Sports released a 2016 report detailing how three of the nation’s largest colleges earn and spend money from their sports programs. During the 2014-2015 season, Ohio State made $52,000,000 from football ticket sales alone. With 130 players on the football roster, hypothetically each player brought in $400,000 of revenue for the school. With so much revenue per football player, there is even more incentive to make sure student athletes don’t get sick because of something preventable, like athlete’s foot in the shower or a bad cough from mold in the training center air conditioning.
