The project aims to identify parameters and conditions that influence the failure rate of service pipe materials, connections and fittings, resulting in a best-practices manual based on extensive analysis of existing installation techniques and material types. The project also would develop a methodology for assessing the life expectancy of service lines, connections and fittings for different materials using a variety of installation techniques under varying environmental conditions.
Proposed projects must include 25 percent of the total project budget as in-kind or cash contribution. In-kind contributions can be in the form of labor, materials or laboratory or other services.
