International World Water Day sparks US debate on replacing outdated water infrastructure with PVC Pipes

This International World Water Day sparked much needed debate in the US over the cost of the aging water infrastructure and the resistance from government and authorities to stop using outdated, non-corrosion resistant materials – such as Iron – and look to new technologies which has seen the development of corrosion proof materials such as PVC pipes that is cited as one of the top 20 engineering advancements of the 20th century and has a proven performance record of over 50 years in Australia, while overseas studies show the life expectancy of PVC pipes to be over 110 years.


Replacing old technology with the same old technology will result in the same problems in another generation’s time. Governments and council bodies need to embrace new, cheaper and more sustainable PVC pipes as a way to future proof water infrastructure for less blockages and breakages  - and ultimately less cost.


International World Water Day was started in 1993 and is a UN driven intitative to that each year on March 22 International World Water Day is held to highlight water scarcity around the world and the importance of using water wisely.
