Introduction to Potable Water and Sewer Pipelines Construction, Condition Assessment, and Rehab using Trenchless Methods

Over the past century, municipalities across Canada have developed and expanded water distribution networks and waste water collection systems that consist of thousands of kilometres of buried pipelines. Today, municipalities are faced with the challenge of constructing new pipelines in crowded urban environments, as well as accessing and rehabilitating aging and deteriorated pipes. This is becoming an issue of increasingly strategic importance because it has strong social, environmental, and economical implications.

This two day workshop, offered in partnership with OGRA, will provide participants with an overview of the specific details associated with water distribution systems, pressure pipes and sewer networks with regards to understanding new construction methods, condition assessment, and renovation methods that require limited or no excavations. It will also cover requirements for implementation of a successful project from start to finish, including gathering the appropriate existing condition information, preliminary design, final design, specifications, tendering, construction, and temporary water and sewer bypass systems.

State-of-Practice: Review of Infrastructure Asset Management Systems

Over the past 10 years Asset Management tools have been evolving rapidly as cities across North America are faced with ever increasing expenditures to repair, replace and manage aging municipal infrastructure. To assist in the multifaceted decision making process for capital investments and resource allocation, many cities have adopted various technology and software systems and some have developed their own custom integrated processes to fulfill asset management plans. The objective of this workshop is to review the evolution of Asset Management, practices, technologies and software in Canada and to provide an overview of some of the most commonly used municipal infrastructure asset management tools available. Presentations will review the pros and cons of each and discuss the various aspects of technologies including costs, vendor services/support, specialization, inputs, maintenance, asset inventory, GIS mapping, condition assessment, risk management, etc. The workshop will wrap up with an expert panel to discuss challenges and opportunities and where the future of asset management technology and software is headed.

Microtunneling for Pressure and Gravity Pipelines

Earn .7 CEUs!

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

This one-day workshop will focus on the construction of municipal pipelines using the Microtunnelling trenchless construction method. Over the past several years Ontario has grown from not using Microtunnelling to becoming a leader in North America for complex and challenging projects that include curved concrete pipelines. Microtunnelling construction benefits include: reduced risk during construction, large greenhouse gas emission savings, rapid out-of-sight and out-of-mind construction, significant reduction in social and environmental costs.

Attendees will learn from leading international and national industry experts on state-of-the art construction equipment, processes, design, construction risk mitigation and quality control and quality assurance. In addition, local case studies will be presented to demonstrate how successful on time and on budget projects can be constructed locally. This is a workshop you will not want to miss and is held only once a year.
