Renewing Water and Wastewater Pipelines using Cured-In Place Pipe Linings (CIPP), September 12

This one day workshop will present an overview of CIPP installation methods, liner materials and how CIPP can be implemented to help reduce network operation costs and to renovate failing or deteriorating waste water and storm water pipelines and pressure pipelines such as water distribution pipes and forcemains. It will also cover CIPP liner design methods and contract tendering requirements to ensure a successful CIPP project. The workshop will conclude with a discussion on project Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) requirements. Case studies and industry trends will also be presented.

Geotechnical Considerations for Underground Pipelines Projects, October 17

Proper site and geotechnical investigations provide useful data and information for planning, design and construction of underground pipelines and utility ducts. This workshop will discuss geotechnical, topographic, and hydrogeological factors that should be considered for efficient and successful completion of trenchless replacement of underground pipelines and conduits. Methods to obtain detailed geotechnical information and best practices will be presented. Details on how the borehole sampling and laboratory testing can influence the site selection, design, construction and choice/feasibility of equipment, drilling fluids, quality assurance/quality control procedures.  Furthermore, geotechnical baseline reports and equitable risk sharing technique(s) due to adverse and changing ground conditions will be discussed. Real case studies will provide examples of good and not-so-good practices to evaluate ground conditions for trenchless construction projects.
