Making Connections to Polyethylene Water Pipes
1st July | 12:00 - 13:00
How to make connections with predictable asset lifetimes, leak free, without interruption of service, with minimal or no impact on traffic flows? How to do this in particular with polyethylene water mains when we want to connect new developments, build bypass loops, retrofit hydrants or air valves.
In this webinar we explore and share knowledge how to join to this material, what works and what doesn’t, and provide some insight into current state of the art options available for use now.
