Case Study: A Northern Alberta utility’s proactive approach to assessment avoids potential catastrophic holiday failure

Description:

In 2015, EPCOR acquired the Northside Pipeline, a 40-year-old PCCP water main. Partnering with Pure Technologies, EPCOR conducted a comprehensive condition assessment on a section of this pipeline in November, 2019. The utility gained actionable information for planning future repairs and was alerted to high-risk pipes. With quick action by EPCOR, the pipe was proactively repaired just in time for the holiday season.
