AbstractA field monitoring project was initiated to advance understanding of water distribution system deterioration as a function of soil behaviour and pipe?soil interaction under operating conditions. A section of asbestos cement pipe was instrumented to monitor the performance of water mains in an older area of the City of Regina, which has experienced frequent pipe breakage in recent years. The instrumentation includes sensors for monitoring the longitudinal and circumferential strains along the pipe, soil displacement, soil moisture content, soil pressure, and pipe temperature and soil temperatures at different depths. The paper presents analysis of strain and temperature sensor measurements taken from September 2006 to January 2007.
