PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF MANUAL
The purpose of this manual is to provide design engineers, utility managers, educators, and planners with a concise listing and description of the most commonly used types of water conveyance and drainage pipe that are commercially available in the United States. Also provided are listings of the most commonly used standards for manufacturing the pipe, useful publications pertaining to the design and installation of pipe, and industry groups that promote and distribute research data on their type of pipe.
During the preparation of this manual, the Pipeline Manual Task Committee obtained information from many sources. These sources include associations for standards and practices, governmental agencies, professional societies, educational institutions, consultants, pipe manufacturers, and industry groups.
Chapter 13, titled Resource Directory, is a compilation of the most active organizations involved with water conveyance pipe design and fabrication. Street addresses, phone and fax numbers, e-mail, and internet website addresses are listed. This information is current as of the date the manual was published (2013).
Before starting a pipeline construction project, managers and owners should make certain that the pipe installation crew has copies and are familiar with the latest pipe installation manuals.
