AWWA Offers Free Webcast Oct. 24


The American Water Works Association will conduct a Webcast about the installation and maintenance of Polyethylene (PE) pipe on October 24, 2007 at 1PM Eastern Time.

For more information on the Webcast and how to register, visit the AWWA website: www.awwa.org

Utility supervisors, operators, engineers and contractors are invited to log in to "PE Pipe in the Field" for a one and a half hour-long Webcast on the proper use of PE pipe. Topics include how to safely handle, transport, install and repair PE pipe. The speakers will be AWWA PE Pipe Committee members and authors of the AWWA manual M55: Design and Installation of Polyethylene Pipe: John Fishburne from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities, Jim Craig of McElroy Manufacturing, Inc. and Bill Adams of WL Plastics Corporation.

M55: Design and Installation of Polyethylene Pipe was published in 2005 to provide users with both technical and general information to aid in the design, specification, procurement, installation, and understanding of the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe and fittings. This Webcast is designed to supplement the manual with information on practical applications to extend the lifecycle of PE pipe.
