Pipe Bursting of Potable Water Mains: Pipe Bursting Operation Mobile App

It is strongly recommends that public water systems (PWS) intending to use this pipe replacement technique - pipe bursting of potable water mains using pre-chlorinated high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe - develop and implement written project requirements based on this app; there are no state regulations specific to use of this technique. For purposes of this guidance, city, town, or private utility are terms used inter-changeably. They all refer to the owner of the system. The owner, based on a set of engineering drawings, selects a contractor, the party performing the work, to install the piping in accordance with designed plans and specifications of an engineer. The pipe bursting operation described within the Pipe Bursting of Potable Water Mains: Pipe Bursting Operation mobile app provides guidance on the basic process. It is to be understood that the need to make exceptions or additions to this process is common. These changes are made to accommodate non-standard conditions. The contractor experience requirements make it reasonable to put the responsibility of devising these exceptions upon the contractor.
