August 25, 2020 – Envirologics CEL (Clean, Evaluate and Line) of Watermain in Boucherville, Quebec
This project contained 94m of 150mm (6”) ductile iron pipe. The pipe was highly tuberculated resulting in lower water pressure and flow rates. Also, a remaining wall thickness evaluation was conducted to determine the pipe’s remaining structural properties.
