Drinking water infrastructure earned a “D” grade for over a decade in the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, before increasing slightly to a C- in 2021. Despite this modest improvement, significant work remains, and decision-makers are especially focused on eliminating lead service pipelines, which can lead to serious illness and even death. Cautionary tales like Flint have helped governments prioritize fixing our water infrastructure, and cost-effective solutions exist to modernize our existing pipeline system.
One solution is installing pipe materials with a longer lifespan such as chemically inert plastic pipes that last for at least 100 years. Combining innovative engineering design, installation procedures and years of excellence in plastic pipe manufacturing, JM Eagle’s thermoplastic pipe offerings bring higher performance, lighter weight, and more cost-effective pipe solutions for all municipal applications. All JM Eagle plastic pipes are tested to meet or exceed standards set by AWWA, ASTM, ISO, NSF and many other internationally recognized standard-setting organizations.
