Case study: Municipal Water Supply System
A municipal water system designed for the Turks and Caicos specified a full HDPE system. After considering the costs and maintenance issues with traditional materials in this demanding Caribbean environment, engineers easily saw the benefits and return on investment with using HDPE pipe and fittings.
HDPE, Inc. provided the expertise in both installation and training of the contractors who were not experienced in working with HDPE pipe. HDPE, Inc. created seamless runs adjacent to the affected areas with minimal disruption to surrounding traffic and businesses, using horizontal boring techniques to tunnel beneath roadways.
The final joining of the new system to the existing system was accomplished in a fraction of the time compared to traditional pipe materials, minimizing the water main shutoff period.
Contractors unanimously agreed that HDPE pipe and fittings would provide numerous benefits to the project including ease of material handling, seamless welding, leak free, longevity and lower overall cost.
The water main project has proven itself an investment that will benefit the island for years to come. The ability to minimize the impact of installation, the environmental benefits of HDPE plus the reduced overall cost in the long term will be a model to follow for using HDPE pipe.
