Pipeline Management

Discover the true condition of your water mains with pipeline condition assessment services from Wachs Water Services.

Wholesale replacement of aging water mains is not just cost-prohibitive -- it's unnecessary in many cases. Many water distribution and transmission mains serving major cities were installed between 50 to 100 years ago, and today's budget-strapped municipalities, water utilities, and pipeline operators simply cannot afford the millions of dollars required to replace them. Performing pipe condition assessments and replacing only structurally compromised pipeline sections enables water utilities to maximize the reliable operating life of existing assets, and drastically reduce overall water pipeline capital and operating costs.
