Incidents of water contamination have sparked concern about health hazards linked to the use of cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) for sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and drinking water pipe repairs. This study focused on chemical emissions from CIPP for storm sewer repairs, examining CIPP-related surface water contamination, CIPP water quality impacts, construction practices for CIPP installations, and various guidance documents.

Effective knowledge exchange and constructive communication are vital to maintain stability in the water industry and to encourage its evolution. Researchers and innovators particularly need to connect with those who are likely to use their findings, not only to share their results but to receive critical feedback and advice.

Meter-Testing Methods Matter
Devan J. Shields, Steven L. Barfuss, Michael C. Johnson, and Craig C. Hannah
This article discusses the results of a study performed at the Utah Water Research Laboratory (UWRL) that involved sending a set of meters to various utility meter shops around the country to be tested. Each utility forwarded a copy of its accuracy test results to the UWRL, and the results from each utility were then compared with the UWRL test results.
