Carbon Fiber Repair for Thrust Restraint Upgrade of 84-in. PCCP
Tucson Water has been the City of Tucson’s municipal water utility for more than 100 years. As a public water provider, Tucson Water serves approximately 710,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers within a 350-sqmile service area. The water system is comprised of 4,500 miles of underground pipelines. A portion of the critical pipeline infrastructure consists of large diameter Pre-Stressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP).
Since a major pipeline break event in 1999, Tucson Water has been actively identifying ways to deliver water while ensuring safe implementation of advanced technologies through active PCCP asset management. Through its Pipeline Protection Programs, Tucson has focused on creating an inventory of all pipeline assets, implementation of advanced inspection, monitoring and risk management practices along with procurement of necessary capital improvement funds.Download the Article Available through arrangement with the Water Utility Infrastructure Management.
