Will you be replacing (A-C) pipes in Cochrane?

The removal of A-C pipes from local water networks in Canada is not mandated by any regulations. Since this material is no longer manufactured, A-C pipe is removed and replaced as required through annual asset management and maintenance of aging infrastructure.

Cochrane continues to monitor Health Canada guidelines for A-C piping and will adapt our operations to accommodate any changes.
