The article reports on the application of fused PVC pipes in pipe bursting projects in the U.S. Water Resources manager in Saint Petersburg, Florida John Riera described the project as quick and quiet. It mentions that communities throughout the country switches to the use of the pipes due to installation speed and surface disturbance reduction. It also notes that the fusible PVC piping system was developed and provided by Underground Solutions Inc. (UGSI).
