Water Crossing


Location: Fredericktown, PA


  • An existing 1200′ – 6″ ductile iron pipe anchored in the bottom of a river was creating too many disruptions in service.


  • The water company decided to change out the line using 6″ HDPE pipe.
  • Flexible HDPE pipe was fused on the barge on the river surface. Then concrete anchors were attached to it.

Impact to Customer

  • The fusion of the HDPE provided “leak-free” connections and the smooth interior of HDPE provided a slight increase in the volume.
  • By using “controlled sinking” to drop the pipe into the river, it eliminated costly underwater installation.
