Halifax Water Using High Tech Rehabilitation Technique on Water Main

(Halifax, NS) July 30, 2010 - Halifax Water is utilizing sliplining technology to rehabilitate the Dunbrack Street water transmission main.

The section being rehabilitated is approximately 1.5 kilometres in length. The project involves sliplining (inserting a new pipe inside the larger host pipe) the existing 1200 mm diameter transmission main with a new 1067 mm diameter steel pipe. This technology has many benefits over the traditional “open-cut and replace” construction technique.

Interested media are invited to see the sliplining procedure in progress and receive a technical briefing on the many advantages of this construction

When: Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 11:00am
Where: Corner of Ross and Dunbrack Streets

Note: The site is an active construction zone. All those interested in being on the work site must provide their own hard hat, safety footwear, safety glasses and reflective safety vest. Those without the required personal protective equipment will not be allowed on the work site.
