Let's Move Together: A nationwide movement led by the Arthritis Foundation that encourages people to move to prevent or treat arthritis. Encourages participation in a local Arthritis Walk.
Life Improvement Series Programs: Taught by nationally certified instructors, the Arthritis Foundation's Life Improvement Series empowers people with arthritis through aquatic, exercise and self-help programs that are proven to increase mobility, and reduce pain and stiffness. Physician visits are included in these group programs.

Grass-roots advocacy: The foundation enlists individuals as advocates and ambassadors to influence positive changes in their lives, their communities and in their elected governments by making their personal stories and opinions known. Advocates are currently lobbying Congress to pass the Arthritis Prevention, Control & Cure Act.

  1. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...

  2. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  3. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  4. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  5. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!
