ST. LOUIS, Dec. 11, 2018—Core & Main LP, the leading U.S. distributor of water, sewer and fire protection products, has received the 2018 Municipal Leadership Award (MLA) from the Alliance for PE Pipe, which includes leaders in the HDPE (high-density polyethylene) pipe industry who are committed to the advancement of PE pipe in municipal water systems. The project supported HDPE pipe used in the Austin Utilities municipal system in Minnesota, where the utility is replacing aging water main pipes with HDPE lines in conjunction with street replacement projects.
