Summer Break at CNU

Christopher Newport University, or CNU, is a public liberal arts university located in Newport News, Virginia. CNU is the youngest university in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The institution is named after Christopher Newport, who was a buccaneer and captain of the Susan Constant, the largest of three ships which carried settlers for the Virginia Company in 1607. Christopher Newport and his crew were on their way to found Jamestown in the Virginia Colony, which would become the first English settlement in North America.

Tri-State Utilities subcontracted from W.M. Jordan to rehabilitate and reinforce 267 lf of 60” RCP with a CIPP Liner under the new addition of the CNU – Trible Library. The result has been a like new finished pipe in a continuous form, fitting tight to the host pipe with an expected life span of at least 50 years. The liner was designed to structurally support all the environmental loads which could affect the liner.

Jeff Ambrose, Superintendent for W.M. Jordan, stated: “It was a pleasure to have Nathan and the entire Tri-State Utilities’ crew on this project. They were professional and dedicated to providing a quality installation.”
