Assessment and Trenchless Rehabilitation of Culverts 

 

 

THE ISSUECulvert collapses and blockages have recently hit the news headlines and graphically demonstrate how major property damage, traffic diversions and general inconvenience to the public occur when culverts fail to function. 

 

 

OBJECTIVEThis workshop will cover culvert management principles that would benefit public sector organizations including municipalities, cities and highway authorities. The workshop is presented by a number of experienced practitioners both from the consulting and construction spheres of industry. 

 

The workshops are organized into the following three themes: 

 

· Condition Assessment: The first part of the workshop will guide attendees through the various stages of culvert assessment: data collection, inspection procedures, data storage, and data evaluation. 

 

· Design Principles: The second part of the workshop will focus on the fundamental design principles of flexible pipe and hydraulic considerations for culverts. Trenchless rehabilitation techniques suitable for culvert rehabilitation will be presented. 

 

· Case Studies: The workshop will also include rehabilitation case studies covering the culvert management principles profiled in the initial portion of this workshop.

The British Columbia Chapter of the North American Society (NASTT-BC) is joining forces with NASTT (the national organization) to sponsor a special one-day Lateral Lining Good Practices Course, Thursday, Feb 12th, 2015, at Eaglequest Golf at Coyote Creek in Surrey, British Columbia.     

Description: Millions of sewer laterals – the portion of sewer networks that connect individual properties to the public sewer network – exist throughout the United States and Canada. Many laterals have not been maintained and as a result, allow a significant amount of inflow and infiltration (I/I) into sewer systems, which can lead to sanitary sewer overflows, increased costs and damage. Consequently, there is a compelling need to solve I/I problems of sewer laterals.

Course Objective: This course offers a clear understanding of the problems and relevant issues unique to the private lateral portion of the collection system network, explains available options for inspection, evaluation and repair of sewer laterals and address the financial and legal issues that affect the means by which necessary work can be accomplished.

NEW Course Material! The course material has been recently updated to include new technology developments and utility experience in terms of managing the legal and financial issues associated with private lateral sewer programs. Information on the actual savings in I/I reduction being realized through lateral rehabilitation programs will also be presented.

Course Topics: The sewer laterals course covers the following topics: (1) an introductory overview of what sewer laterals are and why they present an important problem; (2) methods of locating and inspecting of laterals, (3) condition assessment and decision-making regarding necessary repairs, options for trenchless rehabilitation or replacement of laterals; (3) bid documents; (4) legal and financial issues. Most attention is given to a detailed description of rehabilitation methods, review of relevant issues (before, during or after construction) and experience gained in case studies.

Course Instructors:

Dr. John Matthews has 10 years of experience in construction and research focusing specifically on rehabilitation and inspection of water and wastewater infrastructure systems.  He has served as the Water Infrastructure Management Lead at Battelle for four years leading on many water infrastructure rehabilitation and inspection projects for organizations such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), Water Research Foundation (WaterRF), and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Prior to joining Battelle, he served six years as a Research Associate at Louisiana Tech University’s Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) where he led the development of multiple automated decision support systems (DSS) for technology selection for three leading industry associations: National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA), National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO), and WERF.  John has served as a field inspector on numerous pipeline and manhole rehabilitation and replacement construction projects for water and wastewater utilities.

Dr. Jason Lueke, P.Eng. has over 15 years of experience in consulting, construction, education, and research focusing specifically on trenchless engineering and construction. Prior to rejoining Associated Engineering in 2012, he served three and a half years as an Assistant Professor and Senior Sustainability Scientist in the Del E. Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University teaching soil mechanics and researching trenchless methods, infrastructure utility design, and buried infrastructure management. During his first tenure with Associated Engineering he was an Infrastructure Engineer and Trenchless Discipline Lead in their Edmonton office. In that role he coordinated, designed, and managed various trenchless projects; performed construction feasibility assessments and facilitated value engineering workshops; performed conceptual design studies; conducted preliminary and detailed designs; and supported AE’s other offices with various trenchless specific projects. Jason has participated as an engineer or contractor on a variety of trenchless projects involving pipe bursting, horizontal directional drilling, cured in place pipe relining, auger boring, pipe ramming, and tunnelling.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs): Earn valuable CEUs for your attendance and participation. (One CEU = 10 Professional Development Hours). By attending this course, you will earn 0.7 CEUs and receive a certificate issued by Louisiana Tech University.

Course Fee: $500 CAD. A reduced rate of $450 CAD will be offered to those who register on or before Jan. 15th, 2015. All registries who are not current members will receive a free, 6-month membership to NASTT (the national organization).

NASTT’s Lateral Lining

Good Practices Course

Watch for new dates for this course

 

The British Columbia Chapter of the North American Society (NASTT-BC) is pleased to sponsor a special one-day Lateral Lining Good Practices Course,

 

Description: Millions of sewer laterals – the portion of sewer networks that connect individual properties to the public sewer network – exist throughout the United States and Canada. Many laterals have not been maintained and as a result, allow a significant amount of inflow and infiltration (I/I) into sewer systems, which can lead to sanitary sewer overflows, increased costs and damage. Consequently, there is a compelling need to solve I/I problems of sewer laterals.

 

Course Objective: This course offers a clear understanding of the problems and relevant issues unique to the private lateral portion of the collection system network, explains available options for inspection, evaluation and repair of sewer laterals and address the financial and legal issues that affect the means by which necessary work can be accomplished.

 

NEW Course Material! The course material has been recently updated to include new technology developments and utility experience in terms of managing the legal and financial issues associated with private lateral sewer programs. Information on the actual savings in I/I reduction being realized through lateral rehabilitation programs will also be presented.

 

Course Topics: The sewer laterals course covers the following topics: (1) an introductory overview of what sewer laterals are and why they present an important problem; (2) methods of locating and inspecting of laterals, (3) condition assessment and decision-making regarding necessary repairs, options for trenchless rehabilitation or replacement of laterals; (3) bid documents; (4) legal and financial issues. Most attention is given to a detailed description of rehabilitation methods, review of relevant issues (before, during or after construction) and experience gained in case studies.

 

Who should attend? The target audience is contractors, public works and municipal personnel, consulting engineers, inspectors and industry practitioners.
