Purdue Announces New Study on Emissions from Cured In Place Pipe Repair

In 2016, Purdue researchers began investigating chemical emissions and exposures caused by cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) water pipe repair sites. CIPP is the most popular water pipe repair technologies used in the U.S. and chemicals can be emitted into the air and enter nearby buildings.

CIPP is used for sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and drinking water pipe repairs and can affect indoor air quality.
