AMERICAN helps launch new water infrastructure era at Kennedy Space Center

The launch site used for most NASA-led space exploration efforts since 1968, the Kennedy Space Center (KSC), will soon be home to more than 25 miles of AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe Company products.

AMERICAN has been involved in numerous projects at KSC over the years, but this particular project is part of an effort to update and add to the water infrastructure at the center. AMERICAN products are only being used in Phase 4, “Revitalize Kennedy Space Center Water and Wastewater Systems.” More than 100,000 feet of 4- to 18-inch Fastite cement-lined ductile iron pipe will be installed as new water lines in some areas, and in others, will replace 60-year-old asbestos-cement pipes.
