Click here to order your copy of Pipework, valves and associated equipment in dams (C789).
The average age of UK reservoirs is around 125 years' old and this also generally applies to their pipework systems that are critical to the safe operation of a dam. Pipework systems in dams is a collective term for pipes, valves, gates and associated equipment, along with fittings, joints, jointing materials, supports, restraints and drainage pipework.
Poor maintenance of existing equipment in dam structures is one of four primary causes of dam failure and can have severe operational and safety consequences. CIRIA's new guide sets out practical guidelines on the effective operation, maintenance and implementation of any works related to pipework systems in existing dams.
The CIRIA project was funded by Anglian Water, Arup, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, Environment Agency, Northern Ireland Water, Scottish Water, Severn Trent Water, SSE, Thames Water, United Utilities and Yorkshire Water.
