Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) announced last week that three new documents relating to the lining of water mains are now available for comment.

The documents include manual for selection and application of cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) and spray liners for use in water pipe.

The second includes the Water Industry Standard for CIPP used for the renovation of drinking water pipes.

The final entails the Water Industry Standard for polymeric spray lining materials used for the renovation of drinking water pipes.

The documents are the result of a Cooperative Research Centre and Water Industry funded collaborative project involving water utilities, universities, product suppliers and applicators.

The public currently has the opportunity to provide feedback on new documents with a public consultation period open now until  2 September 2021.

Comments are welcome from manufacturers, suppliers, designers, installers and asset owners.

Once the public consultation period has concluded, the WSAA Project Team will consider the submissions received and amend the documents as deemed appropriate.

It is estimated the documents will be finalised and ready for publication by 30 September 2021.

A copy of the pre-publication draft of each document is available on the WSAA website.
