Successful assessment of 24-in ductile iron force main

Recently, PICA was contracted by the City of Raymore to inspect a portion of their 24-in DI force main. The line had been installed in the early 1990’s but had experienced three leaks. Subsequent soil analysis determined the soil was “hot” and potentially damaging for their unwrapped pipe.

In order to make good decisions regarding the rehabilitation of their 17,500 ft force main, they called in PICA to give them a report chronicling the exact condition of their line. The full story is described by Phil Becker (Engineering Technician with the City of Raymore) and Chris Garrett (General Manager of PICA USA) in February’s Trenchless Technology publication.

This force main project is one of many that PICA has accomplished in the last couple of years, proving that “Good Decisions start with Good Information”.

      If you click on the “Trenchless Technology publication” link, you can read it right now. I guess I should have made that clearer. 🙂
