Fusible PVC™ is Awarded Project of the Year by Trenchless Technology

The 2010 Trenchless Technology Project of the Year for New Installation brought together everything that is exciting about a challenging project: teamwork, tough subsurface conditions, challenging logistics and drilling under water over a great distance that sets a new standard for pipe performance.

All of these elements successfully converged in New Jersey in spring 2010, resulting in a 5,365-ft HDD project that brought customers of the Middlesex Water Co. a new 24-in. fusible PVC water main that was able to be installed quickly, efficiently and perhaps, more importantly, cost-effectively. Project officials also note that this project set a world-record for distance using 24-in. FPVC.

The project took place in a largely urban area in central New Jersey in Perth Amboy and Sayreville. An overwhelming majority of the project (some 4,800 ft) took place under the Raritan River and adjacent marshland…
