WaterWorld article: Trenchless Water Main Rehabilitation Design Considerations WEBINAR
Webinar Type: Technical Webinar
SUMMARY: As municipalities modernize their treatment capability, they become increasingly aware of the need to upgrade their distribution systems so that they can reliably deliver safe water, which emphasized the need for pipeline renewal/replacement. Trenchless water main rehabilitation provides a viable alternative to utilities versus replacement as these techniques can be often implemented at a significantly lower economic and social cost (i.e. nuisance to public). Lining a deteriorated pipeline is a viable trenchless technology that is used for renovating concrete, iron, steel, and PVC water distribution pipes. Techniques and materials include cement mortar lining, slip-lining (fold and form, deformed/reformed, or direct insertion), cured-in-place pipe (CIPP), and (more recently) spray-on polymeric liners. The growing use of trenchless methods for rehabilitating water mains makes the design of these liners important with respect to durability, system hydraulics, and water quality. This webinar will introduce trenchless water main rehabilitation techniques and provide the factors to consider in designing a trenchless water main rehabilitation project as an alternative to replacement.
