The article focuses on pipe bursting, which is a technology used in replacing underground utility lines. It states that before considering it, one should identify the type of material of the pipeline to be replaced. It mentions that the technology must fracture the existing pipeline and so pipes are commonly classified as fracturable or nonfracturable. It highlights that the most common type of pipe which is installed using this technology is high density polyethelene (HDPE).
