Pipe Cleaning, By-Pass and Same Day Return to Service


Often overlooked until cost are revealed, cleaning and by-pass pumping or diverting can be a major consideration in the scheduling and completion of a trenchless technology project. Inspecting to determine cleaning requirements, positioning of surface pumps, location of service connections above ground are all examples of the topics to be addressed in this seminar. In addition, with the increase in utilizing same day return to service scheduling, it is vital to ensure site operations are designed to fulfill this requirement. Updates on technology and specifications will ensure attendees bring these topics to the forefront of their future project considerations.
