Direct Pipe made its North American debut in 2010. B Y S H A R O N M .

These three Cs perfectly described what went into making the CIPL of a 36-in. gas line in South Orange, New Jersey a success, as well as our Project of the Year for Rehabilitation.

LMK's technical team went to work to provide a solution.

GIS-centric technology serves as the system of record for risk-based assessments.

The goals of the rehabilitation project are to establish a corrosion protection barrier and extend the sewer service life for 100 years. B Y M A R I A N A B A L A B A N , P.
