Innovative ways to renew small bore underground lead water pipes

The Innovation Exchange is working alongside Affinity Water, who are acting as a representative leader for a cross-industry working group researching improved methods for lead pipe replacement, including: Yorkshire Water, Welsh Water, Anglian Water and Severn Trent Water. The working group is looking to engage with innovators to help develop revolutionary and evolutionary methods to improve the replacement of lead water pipes between the water main in the street and customers’ properties. Replacement of lead pipes would remove potential health issues attributed to lead contamination for customers and reduce operational costs for water companies.
