The review copy will be edited for publication and may also be revised as appropriate based on any comments received during the public comment period. Therefore, this copy is not suitable for continued utilization and is intended only for comment purposes.

Final publication of the standard may take several months. When it is available, a notice will be published in the official notice section of Journal - American Water Works Association. The standard becomes an effective AWWA standard on the first day of the month following such publication in Journal - American Water Works Association.

SCOPE

This standard describes protective coatings that consist of liquid adhesive and geotextile backed tape coating systems and their applications to steel water pipe and fittings to be used for underground steel water pipelines. Geotextile backed tape coating systems conforming to this standard may be field- or shop-applied to uncoated fittings, or field-applied to pipelines and joints protected with organic coatings, such as those described in ANSI*/AWWA C203, ANSI/AWWA C209, ANSI/AWWA C210, ANSI/AWWA C213, ANSI/AWWA C214, ANSI/AWWA C215, ANSI/AWWA C216, ANSI/AWWA C222 and ANSI/AWWA C229. These geotextile backed tapes can be used for repair of ANSI/AWWA C214 machine-applied coatings in accordance with the coating manufacturer’s recommendations. These geotextile backed tapes are not intended for use with either aboveground exposed steel joints or sections of steel pipe where coatings of cement mortar or concrete have been applied directly onto the bare steel pipe.

MAJOR REVISIONS

This is the first edition of this standard.
