"A Solid Solution for Internal Reinstatement of Services in CIPP-lined Water Mains"
Steve Soldati, Insituform Technologies, Inc.
As the market for lining watermains with Cured-in-Place Pipe continues to grow, so does the question of reliability at service connections in the lined pipe. Current industry practice utilizes a simple process of drilling out the liner covering the main stop, relying solely on the band developed between the liner and host pipe. The industry does not have a standard or target value that must be achieved to confirm this bond or its longevity. This presentation will review bonding applications, their reliability, and highlight the capability of the recently developed mechanical internal service reinstatement system.

"Innovative Trenchless Technology Solution to Rehabilitate PCCP Water Mains"
Ed Gajek, Mott MacDonald; Rich Conklin, Jr., NJ American Water
New Jersey American Water owns and operates an existing 60-inch prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) water transmission main in the Borough of South Plainfield, Middlesex County that connects the Canal Road Water Treatment Plant and Raritan Millstone Water Treatment Plant with the Oak Tree Tanks and pumping facilities. This 60-inch PCCP water transmission main represents a critical asset in New Jersey American Water’s operations in Middlesex County and surrounding counties. This presentation will discuss an innovative trenchless technology solution to rehabilitate a large diameter PCCP water transmission using a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) lining. The presentation will include a discussion on the benefits of using CFRP lining in regards to constructability, work sequencing, environmental permitting, shut down duration, hydraulic impacts, and structural integrity of the lining.
