Longueuil water main fail 2012

We were informed of a major watermain failure near Montreal. It is very similar to the failure that occurred in Barrhaven near Ottawa a year ago. Both pipes appear to be Hyprescon which is a steel reinforced concrete pipe. The video has photos that make the pipe manufacture very clear. It is interesting to note that corrosion is sited as a major cause although the Longueil story also refers to abrasion of the concrete. Both installations took place about 30 years ago. It is not reinforced concrete drainage pipe but rather a pressure rated pipe. It does exhibit that these pipes, contrary to what the concrete pipe industry suggests, have a defined service life.

The black tunnel liner plate that recently collapsed on HWY 174 in Ottawa was installed about 37 years ago.
