​How to Avoid Municipal Pipeline Failures

Pipeline ruptures and failures can cost businesses and municipalities millions of dollars and cause significant health and safety risks. For lines transporting raw sewage, wastewater, and other hazardous materials that degrade the integrity of pipes over time, regular inspection is the best way to detect any issues before they have a chance to advance. As a leader in the pipeline inspection and analysis industry, PICA Corp uses an extensive range of In-Line Inspection (ILI) Tools to provide clients with accurate condition analysis information.

Water Main Inspection Solutions

As we discussed in a previous piece on waste water line inspections, regular evaluation of your pipelines is an integral part of protecting the longevity of your pipes, as well as guaranteeing the safety of areas serviced by each vessel. An estimated 240,000 water main breaks occur each year (as per a 2007 report published by the Environmental Protection Agency), with older pipes being an incrementally higher risk for damage as time goes on.
