National Clay Pipe Institute



Sustainable Sewer Pipe, Longest Lifecycle Pipe

Vitrified Clay Pipe is the most sustainable pipe available for wastewater systems. With the longest service life available, environmentally friendly, natural materials and regional production facilities clay pipe is enjoying renewed interest among civil engineers employing asset management principals.

The Engineering Manual and all the elements of the NCPI Toolbox are just the beginning.  As the technical representative of clay pipe manufacturers around the country, NCPI offers design assistance, training and consultation to civil engineers.
 Vitrified Clay Pipe in the Ancient World
For the last 4,000 years clay has been the preferred option for sewer pipe material.  One of the earliest industries to work with ASTM, clay pipe manufacturers were instrumental in establishing production and installation standards more than 100-years ago.  This rich history provides an unmatched level of experience that we bring to wastewater collection challenges.

Established in1944, NCPI is the authoritative resource for civil engineers and contractors designing, specifying and installing VCP sanitary sewer systems.
