COLLECTION AND COMPILATION OF WATER PIPELINE FIELD PERFORMANCE DATA – TITLED AS “PIPEiD”
The research was conducted on behalf of the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) under Congressional Direction to collect high-quality field performance data of water pipelines (potable, raw, and reuse water) of different materials, including cast and ductile iron, PCCP, reinforced concrete, steel, thermoplastic, and others. The project will aid in the development of a National Water Pipeline Infrastructure Database (PIPEiD) capable of efficiently and securely storing the collected data, conducting performance analysis, and lifecycle economic analysis of the water pipeline infrastructure systems. PIPEiD will help advance the understanding of water pipeline performance parameters as well as the development of reliable models and tools. The ultimate objectives of this federally-funded water pipeline performance research project titled “PIPEiD” are to develop an easily accessible secured database of water pipeline performance and to support future studies and analyses of the performance of water pipeline infrastructure systems for sustainability and resiliency.
This research is meant to serve as a resource to provide utilities and practitioners of asset management to improve understanding of the life cycle performance assessment of the water pipelines. To download the reports, please provide the following information and click submit.
