Mar 21, 2007

The North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT) and the Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) are pleased to offer a special one-day Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) Good Practices Course, Thursday, March 22 at the offices of the Wastewater Management Division of the City and County of Denver. Course instructors are Dr. Mark Knight with the University of Waterloo and Kaleel Rahaim with Interplastics Corporation.

What is CIPP? Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) technology is an effective trenchless pipeline rehabilitation method that may help to address many of your city’s water and wastewater problems. CIPP is one of the most widely used and accepted pipeline rehabilitation methods. It significantly reduces infiltration and exfiltration. It is cost effective and increases flow capacity. And because it is trenchless, traffic congestion and site disruption are significantly reduced. Learn more about the benefits of the CIPP process by attending this special one-day course.

Who should attend? The CIPP course is geared to provide an in-depth overview of wastewater mainline and lateral pipe rehabilitation using CIPP from planning and design to job completion. The target audience is contractors, public works, consulting engineers, inspectors and industry practitioners.

CIPP course topics covered: CIPP rehabilitation description, history and methods; design and construction; testing that includes test procedures and definitions, standards; benchmark and construction QA/QC testing; liner design for non- pressure (gravity) applications; determination of circular and non-circular liner thickness using ASTM F- 1216 and other design methodologies; CIPP construction and installation considerations; and CIPP contract specifications, tendering process and construction QA/QC.

Registration is $275 per person and includes: attendance to the seminar, classroom materials, continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon break and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) issued by Louisiana Tech University.
