Many contractors have developed expertise in the installation of water transmission and distribution systems using conventional materials, but only Miller Pipeline has the undisputed level of experience in the installation of high density polyethylene pipe (HDPE) in potable and raw water market segments. Many of the fittings and installation methods used today in HDPE water pipe installations were developed as a result of the vast quantities of HDPE installed for the Indianapolis Water Company by Miller Pipeline. When circumstances dictate, transmission lines up to 36” – in line segments up to 1,000 feet have been placed using a trenchless technology known as horizontal directional drilling (HDD).

It takes progressive city engineers to consider the use of HDPE for their new or rehabilitated potable water projects, but the benefits associated with specifying this material are numerous. It also takes a contractor who understands the various installation characteristics of HDPE to give the client the confidence that the material properties of HDPE will be optimized. Based on our documented experience with HDPE, we believe we can provide future clients with unequaled installation expertise, staff training and, if desired, ongoing maintenance at levels of competence unavailable elsewhere.
