Specifications for Selecting and Working with Concrete Pressure Pipe
ACPPA Members are committed to promoting the safe and effective use of concrete pressure pipe in water and wastewater applications. As part of that commitment, ACPPA has developed standard specifications for each of the four types of concrete pressure pipe defined by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) – C300, C301, C302 and C303.
These specifications are designed to adequately define an owner’s needs without adding needless constraints or complications that restrict a contractor’s options and/or increase project cost. They can be used with confidence to ensure a quality product, with properties that satisfy the specific needs of a project.
DOWNLOADABLE AT NO CHARGE to owners, engineers, designers and contractors, ACPPA’s standard specifications are available as searchable PDF files, as well as Word documents that can be modified for any project. To download a PDF, simply click on the PDF icon. TO DOWNLOAD A WORD FILE, complete the ‘REQUEST ACCESS’ section to the right.
