- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
In 2016, Purdue researchers began investigating chemical emissions and exposures caused by cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) water pipe repair sites. CIPP is the most popular water pipe repair technologies used in the U.S. Because this technology uses raw chemicals in the field and manufacturers a new plastic pipe inside an existing damaged water pipe, chemicals can be emitted into the environment and enter nearby buildings. CIPP is used for sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and drinking water pipe repairs.
