PICA inspects 16-in force main

InspectionLast week PICA completed the field work for a 16-in wastewater pipeline inspection. Located in the southern U.S., this cement lined ductile iron pipe had a history of failure and was a candidate for replacement and up-sizing. PICA was called in to assess the remaining life of the force main by measuring the actual remaining wall thickness of the pipe.

During the inspection, PICA’s SeeSnake Direct Condition Assessment tool traveled 4,400 ft, navigating five bends and crossing under major roadways.

The data is now in the Toronto office being analysed and a report will be issued shortly. For more information about this project and how PICA can improve your Asset Management plan, give us a call – we are happy to help!
