  • 89 minutes

Thousands of miles of asbestos cement pipe mains in North America water distribution systems are reaching the end of their anticipated service life. With costs for replacement in the multi-million dollars per mile, distribution system managers must determine where to focus limited funds and how to optimize mainline replacement. This OnDemand Webinar provides distribution system operators with tools to determine the actual remaining service life of the asbestos cement pipes within their specific system. The two major engineering aspects to evaluation of remaining service life, system physical condition assessment and predictive leak rate modeling, will be explained.
