Description
Since potable water is an essential service, the infrastructure it is conveyed in is regularly inspected, maintained and rehabilitated.  Since the methods used for water main rehabilitation are constantly evolving, engineers and technologists must understand the benefits and limitations of each method in order to make an informed decision on which method is best for a particular situation.  The ASCE has determined that over 6 billion gallons of treated water are lost every day in the United States. 

There has been no quantification in Canada, but it is not uncommon to read or hear of watermain failures ranging from domestic services to large diameter transmission mains.
