Water management system
EPIC Chamber System by Firestone Building Products is a water management and reuse system.
The EPIC Chamber System is an on-site water management and reuse system designed to collect, filter, retain, and distribute water below ground at the source. Combining passive subsurface irrigation, water storage, and filtration into a single, customizable solution, the EPIC Chamber System uses capillary rise and gravity to manage and direct water resources. It’s an ideal solution to control the discharge of stormwater runoff from roads, parking lots, roofs, and other hardscapes. Benefits of the EPIC Chamber System include the ability to recycle gray water on-site for subsurface irrigation. It can also minimize the amount of pollutants entering the groundwater as well as decrease the reliance for municipal water supplies, and eliminates the need for open retention ponds.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
