CATT events and programs are developed to provide industry, municipalities, academics, and students the opportunity to contribute and learn about the advancements in trenchless technology, underground infrastructure initiatives and management. To date programs have been conducted across Canada, the USA, and in Malaysia.

 Catt’s seminar and technical committees are responsible for the organization and delivery of seminars and workshops. Seminars are focused on presenting information on specific topics while workshops focus on issues of concerns to CATT members and the trenchless industry and to determine if interest exists to form a research consortium or network.

Leak Detection Technologies

Description:

Rapid improvements and advancements in watermain condition assessment and monitoring technologies have made it possible to capture and address leaking watermains before they turn into catastrophic failures. This workshop will introduce a variety of tools and technologies for watermain inspection and condition monitoring. The participant will learn about the working principles, processes, and benefits and limitations of technologies that include visual inspection, non-invasive acoustics, in-line inspection, and continuous leak monitoring. The cost-benefit of leak detection programs will be demonstrated through a number of case studies.

Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Rd, Mississauga.

Ensuring Successful Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Projects

Description:

 

Over the past 20 years horizontal directional drilling (HDD) has been routinely used for the installation of pressure (gas, water) and gravity (storm and wastewater) pipelines. Despite this common usage, many HDD designs are not constructible or completed according to the current industry standards and/or good practices.

This one day workshop will focus on designing a cost-effective and successful HDD pipeline project for municipal, gas, and industrial applications. The topics will include:

  • HDD Basics
  • Drill Fluids and Equipment
  • Industry Trends and Pipe Materials
  • Project Planning Requirements: Geotechnical Investigations, Site Conditions, and Borepath Planning
  • Pipe Design Considerations
  • State-Of-The-Art Software Tools
  • Risk Evaluation and QA/QC
  • Case Studies

Location: CHSI, 5110 Creekbank Rd, Mississauga
