AutumnFest Speaker Highlight – Milliken Introduces Concrete Cloth

Concrete Cloth material is part of a revolutionary new class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs).  It is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire resistant concrete layer.  Scott Naiva, with Milliken will be at AutumnFest to demonstrate the ease of installation and how this fabric can be hung vertically, laid in trenches, or cut and formed into shapes to create a durable layer of concrete.  It is essentially concrete on a roll that is used in a wide range of erosion control and protective applications.  Milliken is new to AutumnFest and we are thrilled to have them and their partners ACF Environmental accompany them.

 

Another Milestone for Prism – 250,000 LF of CIPP

Fords Colony is a premier golfing community located in the heart of Williamsburg, VA and in August they became part of a Prism milestone.  It was in this golfing community that Prism installed it’s 250,oooth LF of Mainline Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP).   This is great news for Prism and the environment as CIPP is environmentally friendly.  It does not disturb other utilities, the existing environment and natural resources.  You could say that Prism is creating a cleaner environment  250,000 LF at a time.

Prism Supports the American Cancer Society

Cancer has touched all of us, be it a family member, friend, co-worker, or neighbor. We would guess you know someone has had to endure the battle against cancer.

At this year’s Relay we dream of the day when we can eliminate cancer as a major health problem. We are taking a stand and asking for your help in doing so. We want to encourage you to act today and become a donor to this year’s Relay for Life – Williamsburg.

By donating, you are helping American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking research and crucial patient care programs. With your help, we WILL lead in the fight against cancer!

Please enjoy this video as a tribute to our co-workers and loved ones that have been touched by cancer.
