Is 120 years a long enough service life?
January 16, 2009
Omaha's Metropolitan Utilities District is in the midst of upgrading some water mains that have been in service for 120 years
. With some new lining, the water mains will be returned to service for many more decades of operation. While mechanical equipment rarely lasts for 120 years, with good maintenance, many of our products -- like lift stations
-- have been known to remain in service for two or three decades, and more.
