More Bang for Your Buck: Cost Effective Planning for Pipe Renewal
July 27, 2016, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MT
Traditional pipe renewal strategies often involve desktop studies based on pipe age, break frequency, maintenance history, or water quality issues. Recent advances in condition-assessment technologies and analytical software now offer better data upon which renewal strategies can be developed using actual pipe condition information. This webinar will examine innovative renewal strategies that employ technologies that provide more accurate condition assessments, joint to joint. A discussion of new pipe-condition assessment tools and software will be included, along with case studies that demonstrate how the tools are used in developing improved pipe renewal programs.
