People’s love for the picturesque Soapstone Valley is real, as are the concerns about the aging sewer system within the park and DC Water’s plans to reline the 110-year-old pipes. So we’re hoping you’ll be able to join us at noon this Valentine’s Day for a virtual conversation on CIPP and its environmental impacts.
Our guest is Andrew Whelton, a Purdue University professor and civil and environmental engineer who has been researching CIPP, or cured-in-place pipe, since 2013. He is a nationally recognized leader in this area. Marjorie Share spoke to him while researching her December 2021 Forest Hills Connection article on DC Water’s preferred methods for installing and curing the new pipe linings, and the toxins released by steam and hot water curing. She will be conducting the Q&A with Whelton.
So many of you have had questions about CIPP and its use in the Soapstone Valley, and we encourage you to send us your questions for Andrew Whelton, whether you can attend the live conversation or not. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, February 13th at noon. We will not be taking questions from the audience during the conversation. It will be recorded and posted on ForestHillsConnection.com.
Again, the Zoom chat between Andrew Whelton and Marjorie Share is at noon on Monday, February 14th. You can connect here.
Or, call 301-715-8592 to listen in on the phone.
