Charlestown Navy Yard and Structural Lining are a Perfect Fit
Established in 1800, the Charlestown Navy Yard, just outside downtown Boston is a very special place in the hearts of many. The National Parks Service, that now manages the site, awarded a contract to Zoppo Construction to rehabilitate the water system. Given the historic nature of the site as well as the need for minimal disruptions during the height of the tourism season, Zoppo in turn chose Aqua-Pipe® for the structural rehabilitation of several sections of 100 year old (6 inch) water mains. Looks like the Charlestown Navy Yard will continue to hold water for many more generations to come.
