Sharing relevant industry information assists contractors and system owners with planning and identifying areas of opportunity.


Every year we ask our members one very important question: “Why are you a member of NASSCO?” We ask this question because we know that we must stay relevant in order to achieve our mission to set standards for the assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure, and to ensure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.

NASSCO members tell us they join the association for the educational opportunities, the ability to network with peers, and to have a voice in setting standards through our various committees. As a result, we continually seek opportunities to deliver on these expectations and uncover other value-drivers of NASSCO membership.

This year, we have introduced Pulse by NASSCO, a free new benefit that provides NASSCO members with an understanding of market potential for rehabilitation projects across the U.S. In partnership with Bid Ocean Inc., NASSCO now offers its members the ability to take a pulse on the market potential for rehabilitation technologies, including five key work types: CIPP, lateral rehabilitation, manhole rehabilitation, grouting and CCTV inspection. While the work types covered may increase in the future, we wanted to jump-start the program with a strong focus on these core technologies.

Members will have access to an accumulating database for all projects in all EPA regions beginning in 2013, including the total value of rehabilitation completed for the five key technologies and the total number of projects completed using those technologies. Periodic overviews of these five work groups, which make up a nearly $10 billion industry segment, will also be provided to NASSCO members. Information will be broken down by individual trenchless technology for all EPA regions. Regional overviews, focused on one EPA region and drilled down to state revenue levels in the five work types, along with state-by-state project trends, will also be accessible by NASSCO members as part of their membership.

We believe this type of information is critical for our industry to grow. It provides contractors, engineers, manufacturers and municipalities access to vital information that affects us all. Understanding market trends by using technology assists contractors and system owners in projecting capital spending needs, planning crew utilization, budgeting appropriately and identifying areas of opportunity. Tracking this valuable data over time will also enable us to collect, evaluate and utilize baseline information to gain a better understanding of industry trends and growth opportunities for years to come.
