Achieving a More Sustainable Approach to Pipe Cleaning: Ice Pigging



Of fundamental relevance to the water sector, SDG 6: Ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all outlines the expectation for potable water services to ensure livability for communities via the production and delivery of clean and safe drinking water to their customers. Furthermore, water service providers are tasked with ensuring cost-effective and sustainable processes are adopted for network maintenance moving forward.

First adopted in Australia in 2011, ice pigging offers water providers a trenchless process for cleaning pressurised potable water mains and sewer rising mains. Within the relatively short period of its implementation, ice pigging has proven to be one of the most effective and time-efficient methods for removing biofilms and sediments from water mains, while also significantly reducing water usage and process risks.

Find out how ice pigging is improving livability with cleaner networks and delivering value for money outcomes for clients and their customers.
