According to a 2002 EPA study, the amount of deteriorated pipes in the U.S. will increase from 10% to 44% of the total network from 1980 to 2020 due to our nation’s aging infrastructure.

Communities as disparate as urban Weymouth, Massachusetts and agriculturally-rich Escondido, California, deal with a number of wastewater system issues, including repairing 100-plus year old pipes, water shortages and public health concerns. All need to minimize leaks and overall system performance as budgets tighten.
Responding to the challenge of color standards in wastewater treatment plant pipe marking, Graphic Products, Inc., has published the Wastewater Treatment Pipe Marking Guide, available free of charge, to help plant workers with suggested standards and placement. Both pipe-marking labels and tags are of critical importance in identifying the thousands of miles of pipes, their contents, diameter and directional flow.
“Given our 40-plus-year history in the industrial arena, we’ve cultivated an expertise in pipe marking, industrial labeling systems and labeling supplies designed to endure the most demanding industrial, plant and facility environments,” said Steve Stephenson, chief marketing officer at Graphic Products, which manufactures DuraLabel thermal transfer printers and supplies used for commercial labeling jobs. “The new Wastewater Treatment Pipe Marking Guide provides a quick reference for installing and replacing pipes.”
