AbstractAsbestos cement (AC) pipe was first introduced in North America in 1929 and became a common choice for potable water main construction from the 1940s to the 1970s. To understand the condition of AC pipe in North America, a survey was conducted that obtained information about AC pipe inventory, pipe conditions, working environments, rehabilitation/replacement methods, and safety and health-related management practices. This paper summarizes the AC condition assessment techniques used by the surveyed utilities. It also reviews other available condition assessment methods for AC pipes.
