SEH Engineer Discusses Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining on Discovery Channel

ST. PAUL, Minn. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 11, 2012 — Professional services firm Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. (SEH®) Project Engineer Paul Pasko, PE appeared on The Discovery Channel to discuss cured-in-place piping (CIPP) as a solution to the country's aging water infrastructure.

Each day there are 700 water main breaks in the U.S., according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Some of Minnesota and Wisconsin’s oldest water infrastructure is rapidly approaching the end of its useful life.

“CIPP renews water main pipe with minimal excavation and little risk of damaging existing water service pipes,” Pasko said. “It can be a great solution in helping to renew our country’s aging infrastructure.”

The CIPP process begins by inserting an epoxy-resin-coated polyester liner into the existing trunk water main pipe. Hot water cures the epoxy producing a Class IV structural pipe with a service life of at least 50 years. Water services are reinstated robotically after the liner has cured.

In many cases, CIPP can be less costly and more environmentally friendly when compared to the dig-and-replace method.
