Changing the Rules of Pipeline Rehabilitation

Article appeared in Trenchless Technology -- A state subsidiary of one of the largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility companies in the United States, New Jersey American Water serves almost 3 million people through 8,600 miles of water and sewer mains ranging in size from 2- to 72-in. in diameter. More than half of the New Jersey American Water distribution system consists of pre-1960s pipelines that require ongoing pipeline rehabilitation of approximately 100,000 ft of pipe every year.[...]

A Better Way to Clean and Line Pipe

Cleaning and lining old water mains is a common method used by utilities to extend the life of buried water main infrastructure.  Why clean and line?  Because over time, the build-up of iron scale inside a water main – especially small diameter mains – can reduce its water-carrying capacity.  Cleaning a water main of tuberculation helps to improve water flow, while lining helps to prevent future accumulation of scale and can help add structural strength depending on the type of lining that is used.  But, this can be a costly and time consuming process.  What if there was a better way to hel[...]

CA-NV AWWA Chapter Leak Detection Training

What better way to spend some downtime in the Winter than gathering information to help make your job easier and improving the product for your customers! The California – Nevada (CA-NV) American Water Works Association (AWWA) provided just that opportunity with a leak detection workshop taught by Mike Simpson of M.E. Simpson. Mueller Co. was a lead sponsor for the California leak detection workshops and had some of our leading technologies for leak detection and pressure management on display.[...]

Field Trip - Large Diameter Leak Detection

I recently had the opportunity to spend a day with our field engineers who were performing leak detection on a variety of large-diameter transmission mains in Hamilton, Ontario. It was interesting to observe the team leader open, test the air and enter the access chamber. The crew inspected the exposed section of water pipe surface, valves, and other equipment for visible leaks, rust, or damage. A hissing sound was traced to a fine spray of water coming from a leaking valve gasket and noted for utility follow-up.[...]

Monitoring Transmission Mains for Leaks

For the most critical water transmission mains, a greater frequency of information on leak status is often preferable to periodic "snapshot-in-time" methods — especially since leaks can occur anytime between inspections. In contrast with a periodic leak survey approach, permanent monitoring offers the unique advantage of being able to detect a leak early, and steadily monitor its progression to determine the urgency of repair.[...]
