Denver Water has received the Steel Water Pipe Century Club Award from the Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association (STI/SPFA), Lake Zurich, Ill., in recognition of the reliability of Conduit 40, a 24-in.-dia., 2,500-ft. section of steel pipe installed in 1911.
"Our Steel Water Pipe Century Club Award is presented to utility management whose steel water pipe or pipeline has been in continuous service in the water delivery infrastructure for more than 100 years," said Wayne Geyer, executive vice president of STI/SPFA.

STI/SPFA is a trade association for member companies that fabricate steel tanks, steel water pipe, and steel pressure vessels for use in the water, petroleum, food, and chemical processing industries.
