Program: Pipeline Damage - Emergency Response and Repair


Description: Even the most well-designed and well-constructed pipelines are susceptible to damage. This presentation will examine Cape Fear Public Utility Authority's response to a pipeline failure deep beneath a tidal creek to offer insights on:

  • Initial containment procedures and operational adjustments to prevent releases from a damaged pipline.
  • Temporary bypass pipeline construction and operation.
  • Executing the repair: alternatives evaluation, regulatory requirements, and procurement.
