Helping Municipalities to Identify Appropriate Rehab Technologies for Sewers

Many municipalities have collected a large amount of CCTV data on sewers and manholes. However, they often struggle to use the inspection data to answer three fundamental questions: What assets should be fixed? When they should be fixed? and How they should be fixed?

Join us for this band new workshop to help municipalities identify appropriate renewal techniques based on the condition assessment data. Attendees will learn about the tools to aid data management and decision making. Furthermore, benefits and limitations of various sewer pipe rehabilitation techniques will be discussed.

TT 101: Introduction to Potable Water And Sewer Pipelines' Construction, Condition Assessment, and Renovation using Trenchless Construction Methods

This two day workshop, to be held January 30-31,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.

Trenchless Water and Sewer Rehabilitation with Sprayed In Place Pipe (SIPP) Applications

CIPP is the most widely used rehabilitation method for extending the life of municipal pipes. SIPP (Spray-in-Place Pipeline) rehabilitation technology is emerging as a trenchless and efficient solution that can be structurally enhanced to provide a robotically applied composite lining system. SIPP can be applied inside pipes ranging from 50mm to 1800mm in diameter, both vertical and horizontal. SIPP technology uses a robotic spray application rig to apply an internal 100% solids epoxy or geopolymer pipe lining in-situ. Brushed-in-Place-Pipeline (BIPP) as well as airborne distribution of epoxy liners and bonded barrier coatings will be part of this review of sewer and water rehab technologies that comply with current ASTM standards. From cement mortar lining to polymer materials, what is being used and where. Learn about specifying, application methodologies and how to ensure quality assurance and controls from manufacturers and contractors. The day ends with project profiles from pipeline owners.

Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Rd. Mississauga.

Municipal Construction of Sewers and Watermains Using Microtunneling

This one-day workshop will focus on the construction of municipal sewers and watermains 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 installations, and sea and lake outfalls. Microtunnelling construction benefits include: reduced risk during construction, large greenhouse gas emission savings, rapid out-of-sight and out-of-mind construction, and 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.

Manhole Assessment and Rehabilitation

This workshop presents the inspection and trenchless rehabilitation methods for maintenance of holes. It addresses the growing problem of manhole deterioration. Inflow and infiltration solutions have been discussed extensively for sanitary and storm sewers. However, these measures may be limited if manhole chambers are neglected. Consequently, an increasing amount of attention has been paid to the rehabilitation challenges facing sewer maintenance holes. As in other aspects of the sewer systems where trenchless technologies are replacing excavation, this seminar will highlight the inspection and trenchless rehabilitation methods for maintenance holes. More details coming soon. Location: Mississauga Grand, 35  Brunel Road, Mississauga.
