Pipe lining is a common renewal method employed by water utilities. In this study, Rockaway (civil and environmental engineering, U. of Louisville) and Ball (Infrastructure Renewal Services, LLC) outline best practices for minimizing downtime associated with pipe lining operations--downtime being defined as either lack of water service, reliance on temporary service, restricted service, or service by less secure networks--as culled from published literature, utility case studies, and manufacturer brochures. They present checklists for optimizing specific pipe lining operations that are accompanied by commentaries that discuss each checklist item and present reasoning and alternative procedures where practical.
