MOKENA, IL, March 11, 2024 — ASSE International is seeking working group members to update ASSE 1010, the standard covering performance requirements for water hammer arresters.

“ASSE 1010 addresses products that continuously help mitigate detrimental surge pressures within the water distribution system and add to system reliability and service life,” said John Higdon, ASSE/IAPMO’s director of Standards Development.  

The first working group meetings will be held virtually in April.
