Aged Water Main Reconstruction
Water / Utilities
The challenge was to restore an aged water main. A Mid-Atlantic city had aging iron pipes that required cleaning and new connections.
The lining system selected for the project was the AWWA Class I WaterLine Potable Water Epoxy.
Once bypass was complete, the line was dewatered, mechanically cleaned, and remotely lined with WaterLine epoxy. The dry film thickness of the application was 40-mils. The lining process was completed in sections of the ductile iron pipe that were 4-in diameter and 400-ft in length.
HydraTech’s WaterLine epoxy provides a cost-effective method of sealing the inside of piping (4-in and larger) from corrosion. This provides proper flow and increases the operating life of the pipe. The WaterLine epoxy lined pipe can be returned to service after 16 hours.
