CIPP Used to Rehabilitate 80-In. Diameter Storm Pipe in Massachusetts

When one of the country’s leading oil companies was having issues with a leaking storm pipe at one of its inactive depots, the use of trenchless technology — specifically cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) — was key to its rehabilitation.

US Sewer & Drain, based in Philadelphia, was brought in to help solve the problem. The pipe in question was at a depot that was once used for loading and unloading oil carriers along the Taunton River in Fall River, Mass. An existing 80-in. diameter brick storm pipe was constructed in the early 1930s, prior to the existence of the oil depot.
