Prepared by the Pipeline Planning and Design Committee and the Underground Pipeline Asset Management Committee of the Pipeline Division of ASCE

This manual provides a general overview of methods used in placing utility cables belowground, including formal underground conduit systems and relatively low-cost direct-buried facilities—with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness and space efficiency. Belowground Pipeline Networks for Utility Cables describes past practices, as well as more recent techniques in which individual pipes or ducts may be advantageously deployed in conjunction with direct-buried cables. Related design, construction, and operational requirements and guidelines are provided, along with analyses of topics including: underground conduit systems; direct-buried systems; cable installation methods in ducts; hybrid belowground cable networks; and status of belowground cable networks.

Providing both introductory and specific design and construction information to support the implementation of a proposed hybrid belowground cable network, this book will be valuable to new and experienced engineers involved in road and community construction, utility owners, contractors, municipalities, and project owners.
