Municipal Construction of Sewers and Watermains Using Microtunneling

Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Rd, Mississauga, ON L4Z 3E8

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

Location: Mississauga Grand, 35  Brunel Road, Mississauga.

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.

Current State-of-Practice Review of Outfall, Gravity and Pressure Pipe Inspection Technology, April 10

Location: CHSI,  5110 Creekbank Rd, Mississauga, ON L4W 0A1

Technological advances in the infrastructure inspection industry have been fueled by advances in computing power and simplicity. To feed the increasing need for existing condition based asset management of buried infrastructure of all sizes, new technology is enabling a better understanding of the real time condition to provide better data to engineer extended system lifetimes. This seminar presents current newly developed technologies that have emerged and matured in the past few years and have become the new way of inspection in all sectors of municipal infrastructure.
