Here in the Prescott area, we deal with all types of terrain and Ductile iron is our preference." - David Towey, Prescott Water Operations Supervisor
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ductile Iron Pipe Research Association welcomes the City of Prescott, AZ, to its Century Club, which recognizes municipalities that have cast iron pipes still in service for more than 100 years.
"The City of Prescott is a great example of a municipality that focuses on the longevity and structural integrity of the pipes in their water system, and we're excited to recognize that work by welcoming them to DIPRA's Century Club," said DIPRA President Patrick J. Hogan. "The strength and resilience of cast iron is well known and while well-managed pipes can remain in service for more than 100 years, we're pleased to see Prescott install new Ductile iron pipes when their legacy pipes need replacing. Today's modern Ductile iron embodies even better strength and resilience than cast iron, so communities have peace of mind knowing their drinking water is being conveyed through the material that has proven to be the strongest and most reliable pipe option available."
