2 days Watermain Rehabilitation Short Course : January 26-27

Description:

Limited space, register early!

Day 1 (Tuesday, January 26, 2016)

Day 2 (Wednesday, January 27, 2016)

Location: Centre for Health & Safety Innovation, 5110 Creekbank Road, Mississauga, Ontario, L4W 0A1

Water Utilities across North America have thousands of kilometer of water pipes that have exceeded their design and performance life. Evidence of this is the increasing number of annual watermain breaks and dirty water events that erode public confidence. Since digging up and replacing these critical water pipes is rarely economically feasible or socially acceptable, many advances in the water industry have been made in risk management, pipeline condition assessment and trenchless renovation and repair.

Who should attend?

Municipal engineers and technicians, consultants, pipeline engineers, trenchless technology specialist, and pipeline manufacturer.
