Fusible PVC Meets Challenge of Restricted Right-of-Way

by Mark Garlick and Brian McDowell

Like many small municipal water authorities, the Beech Creek Borough Authority in Clinton County, Pennsylvania, is always looking for ways to increase their revenues.

Underground Solution Inc. provided the PVC pipe and its fusion services for the project.

However, with no existing water lines in the immediate area of the proposed development, the developer was required to design and construct approximately 600 linear feet of water line...

Great product - I hear they have over 1 million feet in operation. I'm trying to find project to pilot it on in my area (Idaho).

This Fusible PVC pipe is showing up all over Northern California and Nevada. I have used it for water and fire main installations via HDD and Open Cut. UGSI's claims of lower installed project costs and material compatibility are spot on! In fact on one recent project Fusible PVC saved the owner on average $170/LF when compared to the specified alternative HDPE. This is the pipe of the future, just amazing.
