Water Main Pipe Rehabilitation
SIPP minimizes disruptions to residents while effectively rehabilitating 10-inch water main
Since the town of Milton, Massachusetts’s inception in the 1880s, they have installed over 730,000 feet of water main pipes. Throughout the years, system breaks have plagued the underground system. With heavy erosion covering both the exterior and interior of these water mains, which spread throughout residential areas, the town needed a quick and effective solution that offered minimal disruption. The town chose Warren’s NSF approved epoxy coating system along with approved applicator, Spray in Place, and their spray-in-place pipe (SIPP) lining method.
Spray in Place performed a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) analysis, which involved using a remote-controlled camera system to travel through the mains, allowing the team to get a closer look at the damaged pipelines. Upon completion of the ROV analysis, the team reviewed their findings and created a plan for lining the water mains.
Once all pipes were properly cleaned, the team lined 1,780 LF of the 10-inch water main with Warren’s 301-01 epoxy. The town needed this job done in a timely manner to avoid severe traffic issues and to reduce disruption of water service. With our epoxy system’s single-coat application and fast cure times, the team was able to quickly move through neighborhoods, minimizing holds of service and disturbances to residents.
