What is CIPP?

Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) technology is an effective trenchless pipeline rehabilitation method that may help to address many of your city's water and wastewater problems. CIPP is one of the most widely used and accepted pipeline rehabilitation methods. It significantly reduces infiltration and exfiltration. It is cost effective and increases flow capacity. And because it is trenchless, traffic congestion and site disruption are significantly reduced.
