30 Fusible PVC Pipe to Protect Community from Flooding
As with much of Edmonton’s storm systems that collects surface water into underground pipes and conveys it to either surface watercourse, lakes, ravines or the river, the development of Keswick required a system to drain surface water and prevent flooding.
IPEX Plays Through at Royal York Golf Course
The City of Armstrong, BC had a water main project requiring a unique solution — IPEX FusibleTM pipe. In April 2014, approximately 420 metres of 200 mm water main needed to be installed through an active, operational golf course
Saving Time and Costs with Fusible PVC
The weakening of a fiberglass transmission main on Castle Downs Road meant a drop in water pressure for the many
nearby residents that it supplied. Replacing the 451 m length of failing pipe by traditional methods would cause a lengthy, major disruption of a busy Edmonton thoroughfare. The solution? The installation of IPEX Fusible Brute PVC piping within the current fiberglass pipe.
A Wise Choice Made 30 Years Ago
In the early 1980s, decision makers in charge of the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion infrastructures had a sense of vision and made a responsible choice for the lasting benefit of the tax payers. A vision that would ensure durable infrastructures for over 30 years. The technical services, in cooperation with the public works department, decided a major shift for products to be used in potable water distribution applications. Since then PVC has become ``The Material of Choice`` made by the City to meet the overall needs, taking into account the existing soil conditions throughout the territory.
