Centrifugally Cast Pipe Repair Resolves Storm Sewer Challenge
WaterWorld Magazine - October 2012

Otay Landfill, in Chula Vista, Calif., near San Diego, is operated by Republic Services, a sustainably minded provider of solid waste collection, transfer, recycling, and disposal services. The company is noted for its commitment to solar power, and in 2010 dedicated the world's largest solar landfill cover, a $5 million project that generates a megawatt of clean electricity.
When Republic Services staff were faced with a difficult stormwater sewer challenge at Otay, they sought out the best available rehabilitation technology. For this project, that proved to be CentriPipe, a centrifugally cast concrete pipe (CCCP) repair system that is emerging as a best practice for large diameter pipe in need of structural repair and waterproofing.
