Five million feet and growing

The merits of Fusible polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are illustrated in two projects featured in this article. Fusible PVC is the trade name for manufacturing and installation processes that were introduced a decade ago, creating a monolithic pipe and thus eliminating the possibility of future leaky joints. Trenchless methodologies, such as pipebursting, sliplining, and horizontal directional drilling (HDD), can be used for installation. One featured project took place in Lakewood, CO, and the other was in the Kansas City, MO metropolitan area.
