Wellesley, Mass., May 11, 2015 – The North American market for water infrastructure repair technology (WIRT) is expanding rapidly as a significant number of uplifting factors propel growth and the past hurdles become smaller or disappear.

In Montreal, Canada, it is estimated about 33% of water distribution pipes and close to 3% of sewage pipes reached the end of their projected service lives in 2002.
