While attempting to install telecommunications lines below a creek, a driller punctured a buried, 48 in. dia. prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP). The pipe is part of Columbus’s water system that supplies water to more than one million people in the area. The punctured pipe was below the creek bank and adjacent to a bridge making it difficult to access for external repairs. SGH assessed the damage and designed internal carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) repairs.
