STI/SPFA members build steel water pipe that meets or exceeds the requirements of ASCE, AWWA, SWPMTAC and all industry Standards for water transmission.
The Pipe Quality Audit Certification Program is a major accomplishment achieved by many STI/SPFA pipe fabricators. Apply to become a Certified Pipe Quality Program Member by accessing the link at the right.
The STI/SPFA Pipe Quality Certification is a requirement in most piping specifications in the United States water transmission industry. Unlike other international certification programs, the STI/SPFA program addresses quality assurance and control, lining and coating operations, and equipment and welding procedures specific to steel water piping. The certification process also evaluates a company’s management, organization, engineering and procurement practices.
The audit program is administered through a third-party quality assurance organization and requires rigorous inspection and re-certification every three years. By requiring STI/SPFA certification, owners and engineers can have confidence that their pipe and fittings will conform to both the defined requirements of the specifications and the intent of a quality product.

STI/SPFA’s Steel Water Pipe Century Club award is presented to a utility management company or agency whose steel water pipe or pipeline has been in continuous service in the water delivery infrastructure for more than 100 years.
This honor demonstrates the strength and durability of steel for use in the water infrastructure. With rising concern about the aging of infrastructure components across the nation, STI/SPFA’s Century Club award recognizes utilities that have properly maintained their steel pipe components, resulting in 100 years or more of uninterrupted delivery of clean drinking water critical for sustaining community growth, commercial growth, industrial growth and, most importantly, for sustaining life.
