This webcast presented and discussed a framework developed to support rational decision making on inspection and condition assessment of high-consequence pipelines. The framework, developed in
Selecting Cost-Effective Condition Assessment Technologies for High-Consequence Water Mains
(project #4553), provides guidance and tools on how to select the most cost-effective inspection technology and how to schedule the next condition assessment for a high-consequence pipe or a group of pipes, given knowledge of historical performance, environmental and operational conditions, etc. One case study was presented to showcase the salient features of the framework. In all, 37 case studies were submitted by 11 water utilities across USA and Canada for this project.
