To draw attention to the practical and cost-effective solution of using high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe for fixing the country’s crumbling infrastructure, the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), a non-profit advocacy for the plastic piping industry, has initiated a new educational awareness campaign.

Illustrating how mayors and other responsibly-minded municipal staff members are saving communities from costly and potentially dangerous failing pipelines while reducing capital expenditures, the “Be A Hero -Building Community” campaign focuses on the features and benefits of pipe made from HDPE for potable water, sewer and storm water drainage systems, natural gas lines and fiber optic cable runs.

PPI kicked off the campaign in January, placing ads in the U.S. Mayors’ Newspaper, the official publication of the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and shared its message at the USCM’s 76th annual meeting held in Washington, D.C., January 23 – 25. The USCM is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are 1,139 such cities in the country today.
