Plastic pipes have been used increasingly as a means for the conveyance of drinking water in water distribution systems. Although there are research and case studies documenting the permeation of organic compounds through plastic pipes, there is still a lack of understanding on the performance of PE and PVC pipe materials in hydrocarbon-contaminated soils commonly encountered under field conditions.Another soil was prepared by mixing approximately equal parts of silica sand and dried, sieved, organic topsoil with a Hobart mixer. Triplicate samples were taken randomly from each prepared soil and analyzed for their important physical andanbsp;...
